Hello, Thank you for using this service, I will be helping you with your problem today
Okay it's very doubtful anything is caught in a vent, however you most likely have a dead mouse either up in the installation of the dishwasher or possibly up inside the door itself . have you removed the dishwasher from under the counter top yet? you will most likely have to completely un install the dishwasher and check the insulation all the way around and also up around with the pump and motor assembly is and if you cannot find anything there you will more than likely need to take the door part and check inside the insulation up inside the door , mice tend to make nests anywhere they can find the insulation , do you think you can pull the dish washer out ?
I have removed the dishwasher from the counter top and cleaned all around. I didn't see a dead mouse, but there we droppings. I checked all the way around and can't see where a mouse could be. How would I go about taking the door apart?
OK i'll give that a try this evening. There didn't seem to be a smell coming from the hole the dishwasher sits in. It's definitely coming from the dishwasher itself. I just can't pinpoint where. I can smell the odour right now and the dishwasher isn't even on. We had this smell a couple of months ago and then it just disappeared. Now it's back.
We found a mouse! Thanks for your help :)
