Question about Kenmore 24 in. 17032 Built-in Dishwasher

Kenmore Ultra Wash Model 665 Dishwasher

My dishwasher is relatively new and has a plastic tub. It seems to be working fine with one exception. The interior of the washer always smells bad; even after running a full wash cycle. I can't think of a logical explanation except that the odor is embeddeed in the plastic tub. Any suggestions? Anyone else have a similar experience?

Dishwashers which are properly installed and regularly used won't normally have a problem with bad odors. Check the following: ?Was the drain hose brought in at the top of the cabinet, or down near the floor? it must be 34" from the floor. ?Do you run the unit at least once every 2 days? -Run a cycle with a quart of vinegar to clean the tub and pump. ?Does the disposal tend to back up slightly when the dishwasher drains? Drain may be clogged. -Don't use gel detergent! ?Check your water softener(If so equipped) These can cause foul odors in the water supply if not properly balanced or maintained Good luck!

I have a Kenmore ultra wash model 665, stock# 15951. When the tub starts to fill the water runs out the drain.

This means there is either an air gap in the drain hose or the drain hose loop is less than 32" high preventing back flow
