We will likely need more details to accurately predict the component failure or cause of this problem.

Check for excessive suds in the dishwasher. Oversudsing can cause the dishwasher to leak out of the front o

If the dishwasher was constantly filling with water to a point that it overflowed even when it was not in use then you could have a failed inlet water fill valve (part 8563407). A overfill float control switch will normally prevent the dishwasher from overfilling unless you have an inlet water valve that is stuck in the open position to allow the dishwasher to fill constantly. Based on your limited details, this seems like the most likely scenario. If this describes your situation, you can likely fix the dishwasher by replacing the inlet water valve. You can order the part from the Sears PartsDirect website. To replace the valve, shut off the water supply (I assume that you probably already did this if the inlet valve is leaking) and also shut off the electrical breaker for the dishwasher to disconnect electrical power. You can use the information in the installation instructions to pull the dishwasher out from under the counter and access the inlet water valve. Here is a link for the installation guide: Installation Instructions . This should help you change the inlet water valve if necessary.

A problem with the drain line and a check valve in the sump of the dishwasher could also allow drain water to siphon back into the dishwasher tub. This could explain the foul smell. Shut off the breaker and the water supply to the dishwasher. Check the installation of the drain line according to the guidelines in the installation instructions. You should have an anti-siphon drain loop in the drain line as shown on page 14 of the manual. An improperly installed drain line could be allowing water to enter the dishwasher tub through the drain line. You may also have a problem with the drain check valve in the sump. The image below shows how to access the check valve in the sump area. This information will help you check that component if necessary.

If you need more help, submit more details and we will assist you further if necessary.
