Handy home remedies and tips for cleaning and getting rid of smelly dishwasher odors.

Main Digest

It might seem strange to have to clean a machine that cleans things itself, but every time you run your dishwasher grease, soap scum, and pieces of food are left behind.

The first thing you should try is clean out the filter and wash the inside of the dishwasher with a mixture of 1 quart water, 2 tablespoons liquid dish washing detergent, and 1/4 cup chlorine bleach, making sure you wash all the the rubber gaskets including the door seals, the walls, and all shelves.

Be sure to inspect the drain hose to make sure it is not blocked or kinked. The drain hose should make an upside down "U" shape between the dishwasher and the disposal drain with the upper arc hitting as far up as it can - right under the kitchen counter.

At the same time while you have the dishwasher pulled out from under the counter, have a good look around for leaks from hoses etc. and inspect the floor for water stains.
