Having problems with your Whirlpool Dishwashers ?

Dishwasher has a terrible odor in it. I'm guessing it came from an empty sauerkraut glass jar and lid I put through the wash, heated dry and sanitize cycle. How do I get rid of that nasty, something died, rank smell in the dishwasher?? Thank you.


Answers :

Check whether the smell comes from the main drain. Pull your dish washer drain hose and check.

Leave dishwasher door open for few hours. Hope no rate has died inside the machine.

Run a empty wash several times!

Our dishes smell like vomit after they have dried. We run them through the dishwasher, they seem to smell okay. Then when Dry, the smell returns. We have tried vinegar and tang rinses to no avail. We have turned up the heat of our water to scalding, that hasn't helped. We have disconnected drain hose and there is no smell there. What can we do to get rid of this awful smell? There is no food in any filters, heating element is clean except for some hard water stains. We have a whirlpool 575-0 qu

I have a Frigidaire Gallery Series dishwasher (model. GLD3450RDB0) that always displays the "lock" icon under the no heat dry button.

Maytag MDB 8600 AWB dishwasher Wouldn''t start... just a Heated Dry light. Replaced (already broken) door handle with complete latch assembly. Still, Heated Dry flashes. Tried various suggested combos of 5 or 6 quick button pushes followed by Start. Only get a 50-=countdown that repeats endlessly. Sometimes alternates with the letter L. Once by luck I guess it went into Heavy Wash mode, or at least the diagnostic for it. Completed this fine, then back to the stubborn Heated Dry light.

Hi! We have a GE Profile PDW9280J0SS with electronic control malfunctions. I can't get it out of the ADDED HEAT mode and many of the other button lights won't light up. I've flipped the breaker several times, and this does (usually) reset the controls to "Normal" and "Heat Dry", but when you push "Start" it switches back to the ADDED HEAT mode. When it goes through this cycle the soap dispenser doesn't open so the dishes don't get clean. I can't use the arrows to select different types of w

I have a Frigidaire Ultra Quiet II dishwasher that gets stuck in the 6:00 position (between light wash and drying) during the cycle. It also gets stuck right before the drying cycle. It will proceed with the cycle if I manually move the dial. The heated drying feature is also not working as well. Do you have any suggestions? Thank you for you time, for it is appreciated. Best Regards, Scott G.

Several people have posted this problem with the Frigidaire Ultra Quiet 111, but I have seen no solutions. When it is set to wash without extra heat, it cycles normally. But when the extra-heat wash and extra-heat rinse are selected, then it gets stuck first mid-wash at the 7 o'clock position, and if it is manually advanced then it gets stuck again during the rinse cycle just before the 9 o'clock drying position. Both the wash and rinse thermostats have been replaced without solving the problem.

Dishwasher malfunction I have a Kenmore Ultra Wash Quiet Guard 3 dishwasher. One day, I found it with a blinking green ?clean? light.

We have just purchased and installed our dishwasher. Towards the end of the cycles it has a very high pitch noise when the heated drying cycle. Is this normal, or is there something wrong? It is VERY annoying - it reminds us of a 'ringing in the ears' noise. Also - is there a listing of time for each cycle? It seems that it runs a LONG time in each cycle that I have tried - with or without any specific instruction, i.e. heated dry. Thank you.

PDW9280J10SS dishwasher has been in use for about 3 years. The control panel is not working properly.

The normal wash light won't come on, the only setting that seems to wash a full cylce is antibacterial. It seems like something burned out. What should I be looking at as a possible cause/fix.
