Odor We have had our electrolux dishwasher for a year, recently we are experincing a very strong rancid odor inthe dishwasher and around the sink. I have used disposal cleaners, but it does not appear to correct the problem, is there something I need to be looking for internally? (I have looked inside the trap and there is sitting water but nothing within the filter that would warrant this smell.

Kenmore Dishwasher 665.1383 is about 4 years old. The past 2 months it has developed a strong plastic or chemical smell. The smell has tainted brand new glasses that then have the odor when they are taken from the shelf to use. It is very strong during use and can be smelled throughout the house. I have taken everything out down to the screen to look for debris or anything that could cause the smell. I have tried the vinegar remedy and also scrubbed the entire inside with bleach. Nothing

The inside of the dishwasher used to sparkle & clean the dishes very good, now the dishes look dirty & inside looks dull with a white film. I have tried cleaning filters & taking arms offs to check for blockage, making sure the Jet Dry dispenser is properly filled, the hose going to the dishwasher does not appear to be kinked, how would I check inside the dishwasher to see if it's kinked there? Do you have any other suggestions? please help!!!!

Melted rubber gasket, black rubber residue inside dishwasher I had a problem with the latch not connecting and therefore could not turn on the dishwasher. After, two months with Sears repairmen, dishwasher still did not work. I noticed as I put my head into the dishwasher to check on a buildup of residue this black glue all over the inside. Repair man stated it was animal fat. After spending some time looking at the situation under the door and inside I determined it was the gasket. He o

I have a DU1055xtss3 dishwasher. It is about two years old. It does fine cleaning the dishes but about a week ago it started making really loud noises. It sounds like it is straining. This dishwasher was never very quiet but it is super loud now. We looked around inside and used a flashlight to see deep inside, everything looks good. Do you have a suggestion. Should I have a plumber check it out?

I noticed water leaking underneath my dishwasher through the floor joists to my basement. It was a small but steady drip through the joists. I turned off the water to the dishwasher and the leak stopped. I looked inside the dishwasher and there is still some standing water inside the dishwasher, but I cannot see anywhere that water is standing under the dishwasher. I am wondering if the leak is at the pump or at the door? But I see no evidence of the seal leaking.


This is probably the line that goes from the water inlet valve on the bottom of the dishwasher up to the valve leading into the dishwasher itself. It is probably a black corrugated rubber line. This is an extremely bad design, but the solution is s ... Frigidaire 24 in. PLD2850 Built-in Dishwasher

I think you need to get a new knob, write down the model number and make and take the pieces to your local domestic appliance supplier, there might be something similar in stock. Now I do mean the kind of small supplier that understands this kind of ... Dishwashers

Recently my Maytag dishwasher has been leaving glassware filmy and not cleaning silverware and dishes as well as it had previously. I had a repairman look at it and he said I should use the "accu temp" setting for hotter water. I've used two dishwasher cleaner products and nothing has improved the results. I've heard that dishwashing detergents no longer contain phosphorus and that is the reason the glassware looks milky. Is there something I can add with the detergent to remedy this problem o

The inside of my stainless steel dishwasher looks as if it has a white film on it. My glasses are also looking like they are etched. I haven't changed the dishwasher soap...any ideas what is causing this? The dishwasher is about 4 years old, and we've only noticed this in the past few weeks.

There is always condensation on the inside of the door and some water on the floor of the machine after washing. The main thing is the foul odor that is inside the machine after a day of sitting with dishes in it. I have checked for obstructions and there are none visible and I have washed the little basket. Nothing advised in the manuel seems to help, although the odor problem is not mentioned in the manuel. I HATE THIS DISHWASHER! I wish I had my former, much less expensive Maytag back.

My dishwasher is leaking from underneath, front left as you look at it. If i go underneath it, there appears to be a seal on the outside (it does not appear to be the one that runs along the bottom of the inside of the dishwasher) that has come away at one point. Do you know a) how to get the front panel off (the bit that makes it look built in),b) how can i get another one of these seals. I assume if i get one we can just fit it into place. Many thanks, Robyn J

Power off I have an ASKO D3100 Dishwasher, which is a few years old now. It stopped working a while ago where the power went off and stayed off (no lights anywhere). I've checked the power point and it's okay. I've flipped the dishwasher over to look inside and I can't see a fuse or anything that looks helpful. Can someone help me troubleshoot this one?


Howdy. I suspect a power surge went through your machine and fried its itsy bitsy brain.Its time for a new one unless you have a good supplier and serviceman who will replace the control unit. Get an estimate with a closed top cost before you agree. ... Asko 24 in. D3112 Free-Standing Dishwasher

Plastic Pieces We purchased our ASKO 1385 dishwasher 7-8 years ago. Over the years, I have found "small square, thin, pieces of gray plastic" inside. Where are these coming from? Also, we have replaced the drain pump 2 years ago and looks like we'll be replaced the main pump within the next few days as no water is going through. We are looking at paying big $$$ for that pump. Almost half as much as purchasing a new dishwasher. Is this a common problem?


Yes, I have the same problem and it is the upper bearing rack, not the pump impeller. The new bearing kit is $30.00 (another is available for $123.00-the same!!). ... Asko 1385 Dishwasher

I have a 7 yr old GE Tritron XL dishwasher that I rarely use. Last time I used it was almost 2 months ago. A week ago I noticed a horrible rotting stench coming from the inside.

Checked bottom of dishwasher for food - nothing there (I prewash dishes before putting them into dishwasher). Added 2 cups of vinegar, ran dishwasher on hottest setting. Sti

I have a Kitchenaid dishwasher Model KUD101lLWH6 - Serial number FR4205761. I have not changed soap or rinse product since I got the dishwasher but I am getting a white looking film throughout the dishwasher. My dishes seem to have the same film. Should I be cleaning it (dishwasher) with something? Thanks, Rosalie Buhnerkempe


The white film that you are talking about could be two things. First is the quality of your water, having sediments either through the water system or from the water heater because the water that goes into the dishwasher is taken from the hot water ... KitchenAid Dishwashers

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

My Bosch dishwasher has several problems: 1) Water doesn't completely drain out and dishwasher kind-of smells when I open it -- I do keep the filter very clean. 2) The dishwasher takes HOURS to go through one load, no matter what the time says on the display and no matter what type of cycle you choose -- quick, delicate or regular. 3) The red display often displays something that looks like "2h" at the beginning of the cycle. 4) The place where you put the detergent doesn't shut.


Hi Kathryn .I think you have a defective pressure switch. The pressure switch is located near to the drain pump, and the device is used to determine when water had been drained completely.Also check the floater switch located ... Dishwashers

I looked online and saw there should be a loop in the hose (there was not). I got that taken care of. That guy said run some bleach thru it after and we'd be fine. I did. Still stniks. It's okay right after we run it, but gets skanky in about 2 days after running. I had another plumber today for something else. he s
