Dishwasher smells


There is a sump in bottom that collects food that is too big to fit in the pump or the drain. You need to clean that. Then you can run one cup of vinegar or bleach in the unit with no dishes.

Odd odor coming out of dishwasher upon opening it. Smells like rotten milk. What is the best cleaning solution?


After a dishwasher is installed the hose rarely comes to mind - unless a problem occurs and a repair person comes out to inspect the job. If the hose was installed improperly, or if it is lying in a position that does not let it drain, stagnant water will create a bad smell. Examine the hose that is probably inside the kitchen cabinet beneath the sink. If the hose is lying in the bottom of the cabinet, it is probably full of water. A film begins to form inside the hose and the odor begins to grow. The next time the dishwasher is used, the stagnant water ends up on dishes, and in the meantime it can cause a bad smell inside of the dishwasher. Hang the hose at an angle on supports in the back of the cabinet. This alone might get rid of the bad smell inside the dishwasher.

Check the Seal

A dirty dishwasher seal can be a source of a bad smell. Before deciding the dishwasher needs to be replaced, check the seal - especially at the bottom. Old food and grime builds up in these areas and can cause a particularly bad smell. Clean it with a solution of diluted bleach and hot soapy water. One teaspoon of bleach for each quart of water is sufficient to kill germs and the odors they create.

NB I decided to add a little bit of vinegar to the machine after I unloaded it. Sure it would smell pretty strong for a while but then the smell would dissipate. Voila! For two weeks now my dishes have not smelled whatsoever.

Smell in LG LDF8812ST


First, scrape your dishes clear of food before putting them in.  Rotten food makes smells.  Second, use a good brand of detergent in the recommended amount and use the heating cycle to heat the water up.  
Most dish washers have a dryer heat cycle but this one apparently does not.  This may cause mold in the machine.  
How to get rid of the smell:  With no dishes in the machine, add half a cup of bleach in the bottom of the unit and do a full wash cycle.  If the unit still has an odor, get some baking soda...about a half cup and put that in the bottom of the machine.  Close the door and leave overnight.  Then, run the machine through one wet cycle...say a wash cycle and then it should stop smelling.
Hint:  When leaving dishes in the machine between uses, leave the door ajar...do not close tightly.

Dishwasher leaves film, smelly water


You need to use something with citric acid too try and clean out the calcium deposits inside dishwasher, you can get cleaner at the store or run a can of frozen orange juice thru it or a small bottle of apple cider vinegar. Do this with no dishes inside.

Smell in LG LDF8812ST


Well, I can't tell you how to fix it exactly, but we had the same problem when we moved in to this house. The dishwasher *always* smelled like rotten meat, it was awful. We discovered, when the garbeurator backed up one day, that the garbeurater pipe somehow attached to the dishwasher, because it all came pouring out through the dishwasher a few minutes later. Truly disgusting, it explained the smell, and now we don't use either of them!
so my suggestion is make sure the garburater isn't somehow hooked to your dw.
