‘ Wet dog’ smell on washed dishes from dishwasher - Help!


Despite cleaning every part of my dishwasher thoroughly (and keeping on top of this), using intensive wash, vinegar, soda crystals, a dishwasher cleaner on several occasions, checking pipes / hoses etc., not eating eggs, my dishes on most occasions have this awful ‘wet dog’ smell! The water itself doesn’t appear to smell in the sump, filter or hoses. I have to hand wash them before I use them as it puts me off. Has anyone else had/have this problem to be able to help please?
