A few months ago I had a new kitchen fitted and this included a new
dishwasher (Neff S5555).
The dishwasher is in exactly the same location using the same water\\waste
connections as the previous dishwasher which did a great job for 13 years.
I first noticed the problem with cups and glasses. As my nose not close to
the rim when drinking I could detect an unpleasant stale smell.
I tried a few 'clean' cups and glasses and many were the same. I checked
that my family could detect the smell and they all could.
I have tried various brands of dishwasher powder (all in the cube form) and
the results are the same. I've also checked that rinse aid is kept topped
I have taken to rinse the cups and glasses before use and they are fine
after a swig of fresh water. I have noticed that there appears to be a
dried residue as I wash them.
More recently, when I have taken glasses out of the washer still warm and
wet I've notices that they are coated with a slimey rsidue which I guess is
the siurce of the smell once it has dried.
Any ideas what this could be or what I could try?
Never had any problem with the previous washer.
