Bosch 800 Series dishwasher ?

We installed a new Bosch 800 series dishwasher on Sunday. When it was unpacked, it was damp on the inside and a bit smelly. We have run several wash cycles and it smells fine when the cycle finishes, but a few hours later, it smells musty again. Any suggestions on how to get the smell out?

That's weird that it was damp when you unpacked it. It was brand new, right? I have an 800 series and didn't have that issue.

All Bosch and Mieles are run with water before they leave the factory. Teh water is pumped out , but not 100% and that's the moisture you are experiencing.

They are DW cleaners that you can run with a cycle that will get the smell out 99 % of the time.

I guess I didn't notice it was damp because my contractor ran the dishwasher after it was installed (and before I got home) to be sure there were no leaks.

Thanks for the info xedos, that's what we figured, but nice to have it confirmed. I will pick up some dishwasher cleaner and give that a try.

Sjhockeyfan, how long have you had your 800 series and how are you liking it? Our purchase was a spur of the moment decision, pretty unusual for me, I usually research the heck out of things before I buy. But our Electrolux DW went out this weekend and we happened to come across a really great deal at Lowes, so I threw caution to the wind!

I love it! I have had terrible luck with previous dishwashers (KA dish drawers, GE Profile), so this is a revelation to me - a dishwasher that actually cleans the dishes, and holds a ton of stuff! It's so quiet I usually don't even know it's on, and since we have an open room, that's a huge plus. (We really only looked at Miele and Bosch, and decided we didn't want to spend what the Miele cost. We're very happy with our decision so far - two months in). We use Finish Powerballs (not Quantum).

Thanks, that is great to hear sjhockeyfan! We also have a large open space and the dw is very quiet. I have only run one load with dirty dishes so far, but I was happy with the performance.
