Do not use liquid plumber in your dishwasher!!!!! You'll ruin the pump! As far as the smell, make sure it's draining properly, and that there isn't a bunch of gunk at the bottom of your washer. If there isn't, run the unit, empty, with two cups of ammonia for a full cycle, that should take care of it
