My Bosch dishwasher sucks! I paid $1,000 for it, it's less than a year old and here's my problem: Everything comes out gritty. Yes, I use Jet Dry, all the correct detergents, my filter is clean, etc. Believe me, I am doing everything right. Also, my glasses and my dishes smell like fish. I'm ready to throw the damn thing out the window. Please help!

Our dishwasher smells like fish inside of it. We tried pouring in vinegar and running the rinse cycle but it hasn't helped. All of our dishes now smell like fish. Is there some place we are supposed to clean out? We have a Whirlpool Quiet Partner II.

I have a Kenmore Quietguard dishwasher, only a few years old, and it won't drain. I pulled it out and checked the drain hose, could not find a clog. I took the basket and sprayer out, couldn't find any clogs there. It seems to be making a little bit of a different noise but does still clean the dishes. Does the motor pump the water out and could that be the problem?

I purchased a Bosch dishwasher SHU43C02uc/22 about 4 years ago. Recently during the last 2 washes, the machine has been giving off a smell like hot rubber during the wash cycle. It otherwise runs perfectly (dishes are clean, drains okay, etc). I have done just the routine maintenance like checking for large pieces of food but have found nothing so far. Any suggestions as to where I should look for where the smell might be coming from?

My Whirlpool dishwasher will wash fine, but when it drains, it's a slow trickle. I've snaked the line from the sink to the washer, but I can't find a clog. If I try to blow into the drain pipe all I accomplish is almost passing out. I can't blow all the way through it. When I hit the drain button, I hear the solenoid kick on with a rattle, then just a hum. Like I said, I just get a trickle, and the basin never drains completely. It's driving me crazy! Help? Thanks.


In the bottom of the dishwasher, there is a screen. Remove it and clean it and the drain underneath it. Make sure the POWER IS OFF before you start. ... Dishwashers

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

I have a Quiet Guard Standard model #587.151524 that is not cleaning the dishes. I took the bottom spray arm and screens out and cleaned them, (they had a heavy buildup of what I would say is calcium. The arm cleaned up fine but the screen still has some areas that will not allow the water to drain. I tried CLR and it helped but the screen is still probably 60% clogged. Do you think this is the problem getting the dishes clean and if so do you have any suggestions about how to clean the screen?

Maytag dishwasher MDB8951BWB not drying dishes throughly. Have had several Maytag authorized technicians looking at the dishwasher and saying it is operating normal. That because of the mandated energy saving requirements newer dishwashers do not dry dishes like the old ones. In addition, our older set of stainless steel silverware rusted out, my wife bought a brand new fairly expensive set and the new ones are starting to rust.

My model KUDP01IL dishwasher used to drain fine. Now it will not drain even after you press cancel. It sounds like the pump is running (2 minutes) but water remains at the bottom. Could it be clogged? How do you check or unclog it if necessary? I checked everything I could. Any help appreciated. Thanks.

My whirlpool motor does not sound like it kicks on when started. The dishes are not getting cleaned...and water remains in the bottom. When I hit drain, it will drain. I also recently noticed that I am having to use my garbage disposal much more often and do not even put much food down it. Could it all be related? PLEASE HELP!!!

I have a Kenmore Quietguard Standard model 587 Dishwasher. It's about 3 years old. Lately, it has been running fine through the first hour and then towards the end, it will pause and the "Hi Temp" and "Heat Dry" like will start blinking at the same time. It's like it is stalled. When this happens, I open up the door and look at the bottom of the dishwasher were the screen is, and I see there is standing water. I press the "Start/Cancel" button to help it drain all the way, which it does, but th

I have a MDB4630AWS1 series dishwasher that is only a couple of weeks old. Suddenly, it now starts the wash cycle but then the Cancel/Drain light turns red, and it drains and stops the cycle. Check for items blocking the sprayers and looked for anything clogging the interior. It does this with all the settings. Seems to work for a few minutes, but then it just drains and stops. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
