Dishes Smell Fishy Out of the Dishwasher

Why do my plates get a 'fishy' smell after being dishwashed? I tried to put white vinegar in after washing, but it was still smelly.

You need to clean out the filter. Food gets in there and will cause an odor.

Also clean out your garbage disposal. Smell can travel back through the dishwasher.

  • Clean the filter.
  • Clean the dishwasher.
  • If you don't already, try to rinse your dishes before tossing into the dishwasher.

you might try to run a cycle through with nothing but vinegar to help clean out the odours, or baking soda

Run the machine with a diluted white vinegar solution then do the same for your sink (pour diluted vinegar down and run the disposal)
