Constant condensation and odor


Did you take out the plastic stop before install? ... Kenmore 24 in. 16032 Built-in Dishwasher

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.

We removed the dishwaser 3 months ago for renovations. It has been reinstalled (everything looks ok). However, app. 2 min. into the cycle the door pops open. Eventually the cycle completes but only by pressing the door closed and hitting restart button 2 or 3 times per cycle. With the constant door popping there is considerable condensation on the new cabintry. What can we look for to fix this proble. thank you.

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.


I would disconnect the drain hose from the sink trap and drain the water out into a pot -- just to make sure there's nothing in the hose that can't get out. Check the sink trap too to make sure it's not holding something. Run an empty dishwasher us ... Asko 24 in. D3250 Built-in Dishwasher

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?

We cannot keep temperature of our Jackson Tempstar dishwasher at a constant temp. One time the rinse will be down a bit and then the wash. We have replaced the gauges, thermostats, motor and element of the diswasher. It is kept constantly clean, and we have tried everything we can think of. Would there be a wire that could be coming loose every once in awhile that may cause this? Thank you for any help you can give us.

Our dishwasher, GE model # GSD4800, installed in Oct.'03,is emitting a bad odor. We do have a GE disposer, but there are no odors or problems with that appliance. I am not sure if the DW drains thru the disposer or not. Is there anything I can do with the DW (such as look for a drain trap, etc.) or do I just call a plumber? Thank you.
