  • Want dishwasher that vents outdoors

    My dishwasher has the little vents that once the cycle is done let the fumes from the soup into the kitchen. Those fumes can peel the gunk off a plate and they bother me. Is there a unit that can be set up to vent instead of inside the kitchen to the outdoors?

    Johnson Tee drainage airgap fitting if you can still find one.

      Sounds like you need my patented toilet bowl odor fan.

      Why any soap fumes when, by that stage, everything inside should be very well rinsed and there should be nothing but clean water steam venting?

      If I were to jury-rig something, a vacuum fan would connect to the wire going to the heating element.
      The vacuum fan would pull air in through the gap under the countertop above the diswasher door which would catch most of the rising vent odors.
      Then exhaust it into the basement or crawl space. I would not make another hole to the outside.

      I'd take an educated guess - but I'm unqualified.

        I believe something else is going on here. Maybe a birds nest is blocking the kitchen sink roof vent

          I'm talking about my Maytag Dishwasher

          The machine where we put the dirty plates to automatically wash. It has three tiny holes on the front door. After the wash, steam comes out of the holes. It stinks of Cascade. I'm I putting too much Cascade in?

          There is no problem with the sink. I'm confused as to the replies. Thanks

            In the drying cycle, open the door and see if any Cascade is still undissolved.

            Don't burn yourself on the heating element. Let it cool enough.
            Feel if the remaining water has any detergent in it.

            Is the soap release door opening fully?
            Are dishes blocking water spray from flushing out the detergent cup?

            Is the dishwasher fully emptying the wash water before filling with rinse water?
            Usually there are several rinse cycles before the dishwasher completes its cleaning and does heated drying (if selected) and shuts off.

                  Chinese cooking odors smell up our house.
                  Our oven vents into the kitchen. In the cabinet above the oven I'm thinking of placing a flexible hose which is brought down and held to the vent with a magnet and vacuums the odors into the crawlspace.
                  Also I want to vent the SpaceSaver microwave directly outside but its wall is the garage firewall. With a floor above, that exhaust will have to go down a stud channel into the crawlspace.
                  Ideally I'd have their fans in the crawl space so much less noise in the kitchen.
