I have been using my dishwasher for about 12 months. It now has a very repugnant odor. Why?

Asked by: gypsy
Are you using a rinse aid that they suggest? If not, you are probably not getting the drying that you need. This results in mildew and the smell. If you read the guide it tells you that using the rinse aid is "a must". To get rid of the smell, try running the dishwasher empty and add a small amount of bleach. Then, open the dishwasher as soon as the cycle finishes and allow to air dry. That should solve your problem. Then use the rinse aid like they suggest and you shouldnt ever have the same problem

Front Control Dishwasher in White is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 2122.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Dishwasher My old dishwasher lasted 23 years, then it died abruptly. I've had good luck with Whirlpool stoves and refrigerators so this was my preferred brand when I started shopping for a new dishwasher. I like the features it offers for the price. I only run my dishwasher once or twice a week and I didn't need 15 wash cycles to choose from. Does a great job washing and it's very quiet. I knew it would be quieter than my old one but I was surprised at how quiet it actually is. So far, I'm very pleased. My only (minor) complaint is a lack of progress indicators - a timer or lights showing at what stage it's in would be nice. But very pleased nonetheless.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A Couple of Design Flaws, But an Overall Good Value Does a nice job of washing at an excellent price. Design flaw #1: The silverware basket is too small however. It just will not hold enough silverware and cooking utensils for our family of four from just breakfast and supper (everyone is gone at lunchtime). We ended up using the basket form our old washer which is a less than perfect fit with prongs form the rack sticking up through it. Also, the basket that comes with it can be placed in the bottom rack or mounted on the door. But, when mounted on the door, it doesn't stay in place and things in the bottom rack catch on it when rolling in and out. Design flaw #2: The door does not lay flat when open unless there is the weight of the rack with dishes on it. Also, be aware, that the door will leak if the washer isn't leveled properly. The washer does a nice job of washing at a great price. I would not let these flaws discourage you from buying. I'm just hoping the manufacturer listens and improves them. Other areas for improvement: It's a little noisy, but, you get used to it. It only has a 4 hour timer. It would be nice to be able to set it for other intervals.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very Quiet So far we are quite pleased with the Whirlpool dishwasher we recently purchased. The dishes look much cleaner than with our former dishwasher the dishwasher appears to hold more dishes than our former dishwasher. Also, we are particularly pleased at how quiet the dishwasher is while running. We also like the fact that we can tell by the steady blue light on the front panel when the cycle is finished and the dishes are clean. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This dishwasher is the best, runs quietly, cleans spotless. Had this dishwasher a while now and love it. It looks great and works even better. The outside doesn't even get fingerprints from dirty or wet hands because when you open it, you only touch the dishwasher from under the top of the door which drops down from the top. The price was also one of the best, and we looked at a lot of them. Now I need a new refrigerator and I will surely consider buying a Whirlpool. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Dishwasher Review Am not happy with this dishwasher. It does not clean thoroughly (residue left on the bottom of some bowls, but the main complaint is that it does not dry well....at all. I have to towel-dry the tub of the unit after every washing. Every dish has water spots. Disappointed [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 2 out of 5 by from OK Cleaning - Bad Drying/Bad Design For a supposed high end product, the inside is not stainless steel. While it cleans OK, there is no way to adjust the racks prongs and it never dries the dishes properly. We were told that this was the upgraded model when we bought our home, but I don't think it is.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great features We have had this for a couple of weeks now. I love it. It is a lot bigger than our other one, so we aren't running it once or twice a day. Usually runs every other day. I said to my husband we are running out of dishes before the dishwasher is full. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 2 out of 5 by from May Need Work Runs quietly. Poor dish arrangement, leaves a lot of wasted space. Too much unusable space on lower shelf. Does not dry at all. Put in on highest drying cycle and dishes come out completely wet, even if left in overnight to dry. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
