There's a foul smell coming from the dishwasher evert time I open it. Doing a wash does not solve this.

Hello! I have a Kenmore Dishwasher Model # 665.15805890. The dishwasher came with the house and I'm guessing it is around 10 years old. My toddler was having a great time flipping the door to the soap dispenser back and forth until he pulled the door off of the pin. Now, I can't seem to position the spring in a way so that the door will spring back. I never looked closely at the hinge before, so I don't know if that is the only reason the door will not release the detergent, or if something

I have a Whirlpool Gold (Quite Partner) Dishwasher that is about 9 years old. I was using a liquid gel Dishwasher liquid and it has been working fine. After I switched to a Cascade Action Pads (solid powder pallets), its detergent dispenser did not open during the wash cycle. I cleaned the dispenser and switched back to liquid gel. Now the detergent dispenser (that looks clean and fine otherwise) has stopped opening during the wash cycle. What's wrong and what can be done? I can be contacted

It appears that the dishwasher is not getting enough water. I have made sure that there is nothing blocking the door area so that the soap can dispense and I have reduced the amount of detergent to maybe a 1/2 Tablespoon.

I also run the hot water in the sink prior to starting the dishwasher to ensure the water is hot when it comes into the dishwasher. The detergent

My GE Profile model PDW9280N00SS dishwasher is 3 years old, and has the SmartDispense feature. Over the last month or so, a noticeable amount of detergent is leaking into the dishwasher between cycles. The dispenser is not clogged, and it does not contain water at this point.

Asko dishwasher model DW 20.3 whichi s without a doubt the worst dishwasher I have ever had. The low water usage is the only plus -- and why we bought it since we have septic. Anyhow, we have a persistant "funk" (bad, rotten smell) in the dishwasher that gets on and in all of our dishes and glasses and china... it is nauseating. I have tried everything, including all of the recommendations to (1) use a very small amount of detergent (2) get biodegradable detergent (3) use more rinse agent (4)

I recently bought a different type of dishwashing detergent for my Frigidare dishwasher and my dishes look as if they have not been rinsed. They cycled all the way through the drying cycle so the detergent dried on and was difficult to remove. I would like some advice on whether this sounds like a detergent problem or mechanical problem before I try another load. This washer is not new. It was in the house I bought and I've only been using it for about 2 months. (I usually use Casade Liquid and

I have a frigidaire FDB1050REC0 dishwasher that is working fine most of the time. Sometimes about 40 percent of the time, when we open the main door after it is finished with a normal cycle, we find a big clump of detergent left in the main detergent compartment and the detergent door is open. It is like the detergent is getting wet with the detergent door closed and then when it is supposed to open, the detergent is wet and clumps. We switched to liquid detergent and the same thing is happening

We have had the dishwasher for about 1 year. It has worked fine up until a month or so ago. I use liquid detergent and after I wash a load of dishes, the liquid soap is all over the botton of the dishwasher, around the dispenser door and all over the dishes loaded above the soap door. Do you have any ideas what could be causing this? Thank you.

I have a GE dishwasher model GLDL560N10SS. I noticed a burning smell coming from it the other day and then realized that although I can hear water running into the dishwasher when I start it, it never actually runs in the sense that the water is pushed through the various outlets to wash the dishes. I'm assuming that it is because the unit is dry and the heating element is still coming on that it is causing a burning smell. If I open the unit and reset it, it pumps the water back out into the si

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.
