Prevent and Eliminate Odors in Your WaterWall Dishwasher
Dishwasher odor can be caused by number of reasons. Your dishwasher has several features that help to prevent odors emanating from your dishwasher.
Use Self Clean
Over a period of time, your dishwasher will accumulate left-over food particles that can cause bacteria. Combine that food debris with dampness, and it can easily lead to growth of molds. We recommend using Self Clean periodically to keep your dishwasher odorless. Learn more about Using the Self Clean Cycle.
Use Sanitize with an Empty Cycle
You can use Sanitize as another way to help remove the odor in your dishwasher.
With the dishwasher empty, select Normal, enable Sanitize, fill the detergent dispenser with a chlorine based dish detergent, and then run the dishwasher.
If you still notice an odor, select Normal, enable Sanitize, and then run the dishwasher again empty, but without any detergent. About halfway through the cycle, open the door to pause the cycle and then place a cup with 8 ounces of white vinegar into the lower basket. Close the dishwasher and let the cycle finish.
