I appreciate everyone that has taken the time to post about this problem. I moved into a house 5 months ago with a dw80f600uts model Samsung dishwasher that has an extremely foul smell. Having never had a smelly dishwasher in the past, I was surprised to find this was even a thing. Nevertheless, I tried every recommended solution from cleaning the nozzles to running sanitizing cycles to using vinegar and commercial cleaners. Nothing worked more than short term. My model doesn't have a removable filter. I've learned today that it's supposed to be next level good in that it can (theoretically) dispose of big chunks of food under its self-cleaning filter, the same filter I was about to take a screw driver to and see if it needed cleaning. After what I've read here, I don't want to see what's in there. I came online today to see if I should call a plumber before replacing the dishwasher - a constant question in my mind has been is it the dishwasher or the lines? After reading these posts, I don't wonder any more. I'll save the money I'd spend on the plumber and put it towards my new dishwasher. Samsung should get out of the appliance business and stick to what they know. Blaming consumers for not cleaning their appliances properly when there are obvious flaws in their designs is poor business practice. This will be the third Samsung appliance I've replaced since moving into this home - 3 down, 1 to go - and I won't purchase Samsung products in the future. I will also encourage others not to buy from them. How you treat your customers matters and continuing to sell shoddy products shows a lack of care.
