Hi, welcome to Just answer .... you will have to clean it completely, with the dishwasher unplugged..pull it out and remove the base off the appliance. Now, clean the drain pump and drain hose attached to it...make sure its all clean...plug it back and add a mix of baking soda, tang, bleach... then run a empty dishwasher on its hottest setting. Let me know how it goes.________________________________________________________________________________________If you have further questions I will be pleased to assist you ..
