Prevent and Eliminate Odors in the Dishwasher
Dishwasher odor can be caused by a number of reasons. Your DW80M2020 dishwasher has some features that help prevent unpleasant odors. There are also a couple of things you can do to elimnate these odors.
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, fill the detergent dispenser with chlorine based dishwasher detergent, select a cycle, enable Sanitize, and then start the dishwasher.
If you still notice an odor, empty the dishwasher, and run another sanitize cycle, but without detergent this time. About halfway through, open the door to pause the cycle. Then, fill a dishwasher safe cup with 8 ounces of distilled white vinegar, and place it into the cutlery basket on the lower rack. Close the dishwasher and let the cycle finish.
