Hi,Welcome to Just Answer, My name isXXXXX will be helping you with your appliance issue today.


there is always a bit of water in the bottom of the dish washer after the cycle is finished, this is normal to prevent the seals from drying out and leaking. tell her to get 3 bottle's of white vinegar and pour one in the bottom of the machine and run it with no dishes , then repeat until the smell goes away. thanks Bryan
