Antwoord op "How do I get an awful, rotten smell out of my dishwasher?"We had this problem and it turned out to be a particular set of dishes that caused every load to smell like wet dog. Once we stopped using those dishes, the problem disappeared. They are a matte finish set from Ikea in blue. Our big clue was that the problem started at the house we moved from and came with us to our new house. How could that be??? We couldn’t imagine why it was happening. It took us a long time to figure it out and we tried everything in the book including bleach, dishwasher cleaners, servicing by professionals, etc. If you brought new dishes into your home and that’s when the problem started, it’s the dishes, not the dishwasher. Stop using them and see what happens.
