My dishwasher smells after use

I've checked the drain hose and it "appears" that it's not blocked although I don't hear the water draining into the garbage disposal. I's alo taking 3 hours instead of the usual one hour to complete a full cycle.
Any ideas??

Why does everything smell like eggs or a wet dog after washing? I hand wash anything that has been in contact with eggs. I've tried vinegar, baking soda and dishwasher magic. Everything sti


Check your drain hose. It should be mounted up so water and debris from the garbage disposal can't backwash into it. Your dishwasher comes with a check-valve, but sometimes it doesn't always work 100%, so it is important to mount that drain hose up.

My dishwasher is not draining


ists not draining.. meaning you dont hear the drain pump kick in? or if you do hear pump kick in, have you checked the hose to the drain..? it could be blocked with a build up of food over the use of dishwasher.
that happened to mine last month. it would fill, but seemd not to drain.. until i disassembled the dishwasher drain from the sink connection and saw at sink connection it wss blocked.. its an easy fix.. unscrew the clamp on drain hose and pull apart and push food back into the drain to wash it away.. good luck !!

Water not draining from dishwasher modle number hotpoint DWF32P/29 how do i get to the hose to see if its blocked


Hi


Dishwasher not draining issue usually occurs due to kinked drain pipe, clogged drain filter or drain pump. Check the drain hose for any visible clogging, remove if present. If no visible lint is present then remove then turn off the dishwasher and remove the drain hose and check for any visible clogging. If it's still not visible then the drain filter or drain pump is clogged and you'll need to clean the drain filter and drain pump. Also, check for any food pieces stuck near the pump impeller. Please note that dishwashers don't drain out the complete water such that heating element doesn't overheat. Hope this helps... Please post back for any further assistance.

Bad smell coming from bottom - water doesn't completely drain out


Make sure the drain hose is not blocked or pinched.Also check where it drains into your sink pipeing to be sure food isnt blocking the drain way.
Its eather the drainage path is blocked or the pump stoped pumping.
Also, the drain hose must be installed so as to have a high spot higher than the sink drain or the water from your sink will be able to "run down hill" or drain into your dishwasher. Take a look and see!

also It sounds like your dishwasher does not have an air gap. Newer dishwashers come with an air gap installed, but they can be taken out. A quick fix for this is to:

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, and garbage disposal.

Dishwasher won't drain properly


there are several possible causes for your trouble. begin by disconnecting the drain hose at both ends and checking to be sure it is not partially blocked. Then check the pump to be sure there is no chunk of glass or other debris partially blocking it.

Water wont drain


Hi there....water not draining out is usually related to (a) a blocked drain pump...(b) blocked outlet hose.....(c) blocked drain outlet (under sink)...the tarmac smell is comming from the heat insulation at the rear of the dishwasher casing....you need to check that dishwasher is not overheating....

Dishwasher doesn't drain


how do you check to see if the pump is pumping? The drain is not clogged or blocked and the line is not kinked. The garbage disposal is not clogged either.

Dishwasher will not drain water out


if plumbed in under the sink, check the spigot the drain hose goes to is not blocked - a common problem. if on drain you should be able to hear the drain pump working. if you hear a faint humming noise instead, then there is probably a foreign object stuck in pump. also check for blockage in the drain hose
