Maytag dishwasher MDB8951BWB not drying dishes throughly. Have had several Maytag authorized technicians looking at the dishwasher and saying it is operating normal.

Bosch SHX68M05UC/46 I purchased subject dishwasher DEC 2007 expecting a wonderful experience and it has been a nightmare. My newly washed dishes smell like garbage. Opening my dishwasher is the most unpleasant experience and makes me question the safey of using the dishwasher. I have had the warranty plumber (Betty's Maytag, Springfield, VA) out and they alleged no problem because the drainage was working. I had two other plumbers check the problem. While they recognized there was a problem, the

My Maytag MDB9150AWS is no longer working due to what I believe is a electrical fire in the front control panel as there was smoke coming out of the top of the front panel. There were no flames but the smell took your breath away. We had to open the Kitchen windows and door for several hours to try to get rid of the smell, but you can still smell it by the dishwasher. This model is not part of the recall. Has anyone else had a similar problem with this model?


My dishwasher (same make and model) had a similar problem except I did see some sparks coming out from th front on the side of it (on Thanksgiving Day no less - a lot of manual diswahing followed). What the problem ultimatly was is what I believe to ... Dishwashers

My husband and I smelled something burning, there was an electrical fire in my Maytag dishwasher. It was running at the time and thank goodness we were home!!!! Repairman said it would be $421 to fix. Machine is under extended warantee. Maytag refuses to fix it!! Not worth it for them!!! Don't deal with Maytag hopefully US Consumer Product Safety Commission is putting on the recall list!

My 6 year old Kenmore Elite DW has started leaking and has a musty smell. The dishes are clean but food residue is left on the inside door and black gunk builds up on the bottom of the dishwasher.


Use a wet/dry shop vac to clean out the strainer and drain from the inside of your machine. A musty smell is a sure sign that food particles have clogged your drain BUT can also mean that your wash/spray heads have become clogged as well. Use a pipe ...

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

Bad smell This is more of a general question. When I run the dishwasher there is a bad smell as it fills with water. It comes out of the sink/garbage disposal. I have cleaned out the line that comes from the garbage disposal to the drain and that doesn't stop the smell. Is there a line that needs to be cleaned from the dishwasher to the sink or how can I fix this issue? My dishwasher, at the drain, has water standing and it smells. I think it is there from condensation as the dishwasher, unknow

Kenmore Elite: - Stale smell from dishwasher, won't go away, lingers on dishes, glasses. I tried a vinegar remedy suggested by a diy site - it helps for a cycle or two, but the smell comes right back. Diy site suggested taking apart the dishwasher to see if there is food trapped: there always remains a little water at the end of each cycle - but I'm concerned about taking apart my dishwasher if there is another solution. Smell doesn't smell of food to me. What do you think? Hollie Smith
