Question about Siemens 24 in. SL84A305UC Built-in Dishwasher
We have had the dishwasher over a year. Since we first got it there has been a terrible odor when we open the door. Even if there is nothing in the dishwasher. We thought it was just a new plastic odor at first and it would wear off. But it has not gotten better, it has gotten worse. Drainage hose is not the problem. It is like an uncured plastic odor. Is there anything we can do about it.
Check the drain line under the kitchen sink. The drain line is supposed to run from the bottom of the cabinet, and run as high in the cabinet as you can get, (up to the bottom of the counter top) then connect the drain. This is called an air gap, and helps keep a little water in the drain line, which will prevent sewer gases from entering your dishwasher.
Please rate this solution.
