Check that your hose from dishwasher to disposal is affixed to the bottom of your sink or high up on the cabinet - if it hangs low, dirty water will go stale and back up into your dishwasher from the disposal. Check out the manual and my post below!

I have the same issue with my dishwasher but I am more frustrated with my stove.  I have the same problem and it started shortly after my purchase of all new Samsung appliances.   I have drips between the panels of glass.  My husband removed the door and cleaned it and it happened again.  It makes my new appliances look old and dirty.

Have you taken out the filter to clean?   They can get caked with gunk and that makes it smell.

 

good luck

Here is a link to an article on removing foul odors: http://support-us.samsung.com/cyber/popup/iframe/pop_troubleshooting_fr.jsp?idx=675736&modelname=DW8...

 

 

Please note, not every model will have a filter, but if your model does then it would be located towards the bottom center of the unit nearest to the drain.

None of that worked  including the TANG - the disposal does  it smell, only the dishwasher does whether it has dishes in it or not- model is DW7933LRASR

Nearly every day. The problem is this dishwasher as i know  4 people with the same issue and the same dishwasher. Surely these cannot be the only 4 examples - i'd bet there are hundreds, if not thousands. Why not just own it and fix the design flaw with a recall? Why take the chance of losing customers that have access to social media? Has anyone researched the issue @ Samsung?
