Sometimes food particles can lodge in the rubber hoses associated with the drain from the d/w. If this is the case then you will need to disconnect the drain hose from the G/D and wipe it out with an old rag soaked in vinegar.

We only get sewer gas smells coming from the kitchen sink when the dishwasher runs. It's so bad we need to keep the plugs in the sink. The dishwasher is 10 years old. We've never had this problem before in the last 3 years. Any thoughts?
