Issue

  • Dishwasher smells 
  • My dishwasher is smelly

Applies to

  • All dishwashers

Resolution

Dishwashers do build up grease and soil residue and require regular cleaning.  A de-greaser and or cleaner de-scaler product is a good regular item to use but also a good wipeout once a week is important. In particular pay attention around the seal and door edge, and in areas where the wash water doesn't reach, such as behind baskets and runners. Also, remember to ensure the dishwasher filters are cleaned regularly

It is also very important that the drain, drain spigot and drain hose are clear and free draining.  The appliance needs to remove the soiled water quickly and effectively from the dishwasher to ensure no redepositing of dirt and grease, if the drain is restricted this is not possible and as well as poor cleaning results, bad odours will result. 

   

If the above steps don't resolve the issue then a service visit by one of our approved service providers is recommended. Please contact consumer services to book a call

Cause
