does anyone else have a problem with their dishwasher smelling really bad after a day or two of dishes in there?  I pre-rinse everything before I put in the dishwasher.  I had a plumber make sure it is hooked up correctly.  it doesnt seem to drain all the way but the smell is disgusting.  Very disappointed and will probably never buy a Samsung product again because of it.

Hi smellydishwashe,

 

We're very sorry to hear this!  Can you please provide the model code of the dishwasher? Thank you, ^Rosi

I am having the same issue, as are 4 other people that I know that have a Samsung dishwasher. Where can I find the model code of the dishwasher?

 I still have not been told where the filter is in the dishwasher. The model number can be found   On the inside left bottom corner when you open the door    I have tried taking vinegar dishwasher cleaner and even changed my disposal and it still stinks

Check the filter in the front of your dishwasher to ensure that it is tight. Not only will it eliminate the odor but make the dishwasher run more efficiently. 

 

Hope me this helps!

I am having this same issue with my brand new dishwasher, I cannot believe the smell that comes out of it. This never happened with my old crappy dishwasher Model # DW80K5050UB

Mine has the same problem.  Never buying Samsung again!  Called customer service and went in circles with the lady telling me to clean it.  I've cleaned it with everything known to man, spent $700 on plumbers checking everything out and even took the whole dishwasher out and re installing it after cleaning the whole thing again.  So disappointed!
