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.

Our 2 month old Frigidaire FGHD2433KF1 dishwasher is producing a very strong foul odor. It is not connected to a garbage disposal and we only see a small amount of water in the bottom of tub when the dishwasher is off.

Dishwasher Odor Our dishwasher leaves dishes and glassware with a sulfer odor after the wash cycle. We have run vinegar through it, use jet dry, and use 1 tablespoon of dry detergent. All suggestions made by the "customer support". None of these have led to a permanent solution. We're about ready to "kick this to the curb". Any suggestions? I've checked filters and there doesn't appear to be any standing water. We have city water and there isn't an odor when you drink it.
