Hi my name is ***** ***** I have been in the plumbing field for 20 years. I will be glad to help you today. Does the smell come from the sink or the dishwasher?

Customer: replied 11 months ago.
From below the sink, which is a closed cubnord , the smell is strong

Is the dishwasher connected to the disposal? When you say "closed cupboard" do you mean it is not accessible? Is the disposal new or used or was it removed then replaced?

Customer: replied 11 months ago.
The disposal is new, under the sink has standard doors, the washer drain line connects to the top of the disposal

Are you able to post a picture of the disposal and piping? The smell only comes from under the cabinet and not from the sink or the dishwasher?
