Bad smell This is more of a general question. When I run the dishwasher there is a bad smell as it fills with water. It comes out of the sink/garbage disposal. I have cleaned out the line that comes from the garbage disposal to the drain and that doesn't stop the smell. Is there a line that needs to be cleaned from the dishwasher to the sink or how can I fix this issue? My dishwasher, at the drain, has water standing and it smells. I think it is there from condensation as the dishwasher, unknow

Smell?? My dishwasher has had a funky smell since we started running it. It almost smells like it is not draining properly or sewer gas is coming back into the dishwasher. Any ideas?

Our dishwasher smells like fish inside of it. We tried pouring in vinegar and running the rinse cycle but it hasn't helped. All of our dishes now smell like fish. Is there some place we are supposed to clean out? We have a Whirlpool Quiet Partner II.

I purchased a Bosch dishwasher SHU43C02uc/22 about 4 years ago. Recently during the last 2 washes, the machine has been giving off a smell like hot rubber during the wash cycle. It otherwise runs perfectly (dishes are clean, drains okay, etc). I have done just the routine maintenance like checking for large pieces of food but have found nothing so far. Any suggestions as to where I should look for where the smell might be coming from?

I have a Whirlpool dishwasher (model DU890SWKQO). I turned it on and for a few minutes only the motor was running, no water. I opened the dishwasher to stop it and turn it off, then on again. When I opened it, the was an odor (burning or heat smell) and it was foggy (steam or smoke, not sure which) inside. I am assuming I did not turn the dial correctly so it only 'clicked' on the motor. Concerned now that the dishwasher is broken or concerned that it's not safe to use. Was the steam/smoke

Dishwasher smoking Hi, my built-in Frigidaire DW emitted smoke about 2/3 of the way through its cycle. It was white smoke (not steam!) and smelled like an electrical fire. I shut it off immediately. It still works but I am afraid to use it. It is approx. 8 years old. Any advice?

The water is pumped out after the rinse cycle then it continues to run and make an unusual noise but nothing happens. The noise is almost a grinding sound. There is also a smell like some part may be hot or the wiring may be hot. I can reset the dishwasher and re-run the cycle up until that same point and it does the same thing again. I have had a repairman out twice in the last six months. The first time he could find nothing wrong because the problem was intermittent and he couldn't see anythi
