My house is 7 years old. I live alone and decided it was easier to just wash what dishes I use rather than waiting for enough to run the dishwasher. Now there is a bad smell coming from around the sink area.
I looked underneath the sink. Everything is nice and dry. But the water hose attached to the dishwasher is clear and I can see gunk in it. I've tried using the baking soda and vinegar method to clean the drains but it doesn't go through that hose.
The hose is running through a hole in the cabinet under the sink to the dishwasher. Am I going to have to remove the dishwasher to replace the smelly hose?
I have run the dishwasher with a cup of vinegar to help clean out the gunk, but it's still there.
