Strong Odor from Dishwasher Air Gap and Disposal
Posted by Brad S. on May 31, 2002 at 13:52:45:
We recently purchased a home (built in 1988) and noticed a strong odor (stale water? mold?) coming from the sink area. After some investigation, I noticed it seemed to come from both the dishwasher air gap cover and the garbage disposal. It gets notably worse after we run the dishwasher. We tried deodorizing the disposal and running the diswasher several times to flush out the system, both to no avail. The inside of the dishwasher smells fine, but our kitchen (and adjoining room) reeks! Help! & Thank you in advance!
