My dishwasher emits a dead animal smell immediately after filling. I have a 20-year-old KitchenAid KUDS220T3 dishwasher. The racks are a little corroded, but it still cleans dishes just fine. About two months ago, it started smelling like a dead animal immediately after the dishwasher fills with hot water, during the time the water is being heated, but before agitation begins. The smell appears to be coming from around the door. If I open the door, everything inside the dishwasher smells fine.


This vent that you are describing is to allow air to flow in for the heat/dry cycle. Some times little creatures want to "mark" their territory by "spraying". Spray some type of cleaner like ammonia into it and **** it out with vacuum a few times. Mo ... KitchenAid Dishwashers

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

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

About 7 or 8 minutes after setting my dishwasher to run a "Normal" cycle, I noticed that it didn't sound right. The Sensing light and the Add a Dish light were both on. I hit cancel and opened the door to find the inside totally dry and just barely warm. It had a slight smell - probably from the motor trying to run unsucessfully. Is there something I can do to remedy this issue without calling a repairman?
