Re: Smelly Dishwasher

DW80K7550UG

 

Should NOT have to clean my dishwasher weekly. The dishes are wiped out before hand but screens need to be removed and cleaned often. They are caked with mold/mildew. 

Also gross mildew at the area were the door and bottom meet. 

It is used daily - dishes or water does NOT sit. 

 

Wanted to love it for the extreme quiet but miss my crappy loud old Frigidaire.

Hi I too have a very fowl smelling dishwasher after just 1-2 days of a few pre-rinsed dishes are placed inside. 

I had the repair man out to look at it and he suggested these special cleaning tabs which I tried yet it still smells awful. 

I also find residue water in the bottom cup and the man from the company said that’s normal. 

 

I honestly don’t think I’ll ever buy another Samsung dishwasher again. I always had kitchen aids and they were fabulous all around. 

 

If anyone can suggest anything I’d certainly appreciate it. 

 

Thank you

Model DW80J7550UG

 

Have to clean filter once a week and deep clean unit monthly and still find new places just black with mildew/mold. 

This unit is used daily so it isn’t because of sitting. 

I was blinded by looking for quite that I picked an awful creation. 

 

My household has 4 toilets, 2 teens, 2 dogs and this machine. is the nastiest thing in it.

Solved????

 

read further this isn’t solved.  

 

Maybe the lawyer that that has taken on the ice maker class action would be interested in this one too? 

 

Only satisfaction comes from chasing away potential Samsung customers in Lowe’s/Home Depot (5 last Thursday-one was looking at a 4000 refrigerator). 

I am there almost daily due to my job.

Exactly!!!!! I'm so glad I found this page. 

We bought ours just over 3 years ago and I have been fighting this smell ever since. I have had 3 different plumbers come look and my dad who is very knowledgeable and it still smells. We have the correct loop in tube and even tried a double loop thinking it would help!! Still STINKS!!!! I'm very unhappy that between washes which is at least 3 times a week I have to air out my whole house just to use my dishwasher 😠😡

I am glad I found this content! I have used my brand new Samsung DW80K7050UG dishwasher ONCE and it now smells horrific! Cleaning it does NOT help and it is hooked up correctly as listed in some of these comments.
Lowes will not let me return it b/c it was purchased through my remodel contractor so I do not have the receipt.

SOLVED!!  OK  I think I have figured out the issue of this disater of a dishwasher (not the solution).  I took apart the front door because I noticed that if I wiped paper towels at the base of the door, there was always a very very fowl smelling odour and black sludge coming from the swipe.

 

So I took it apart today and noticed that the fan at the top of the door has a drain that drains organic matter to a black rubber grommet with the intention to drain to the main chamber.  it doesn't do that!!  it blocks up and turns to sludge that smells like rotting sewage.  I scooped out about a cup of the most fowl smelling sludge I have ever experienced.

 

I am now wondering what kind of damage that this mold/sludge did to my family using the dishes from this garbage dishwasher.  The black rubber grommett acts as a breeding ground for the sludge to fester and stink up your whole kitchen to then leech back into the "rinse" water to infect the "clean" dishes.  there really needs to be a recall on the whole design of this dumpsterfire as I have already had 4 repair calls on this 3 year old box of funk!

 

At Samsung - do your job and design things proper, and then listen to your customers when something is gone wrong.  I spent over 10 thousand on all new appliances to get the grabage that Samsung spews out only to hav e the worst in class dishwasher and the worst ice maker design in history!! Talk about how to find a solution for this and how to stop putting my family indanger with your incredibly poor design!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
