Is your house heated with natural gas? No, seriously, they put a stinky smell in natural gas so you can smell it if there is a leak. I see you live in MO. I know in Springfield, City Utilities will come out and check if you suspect a leak. They do it for free (last I checked anyway) so you could call your utility co. and ask if you think that could be the problem.
|The water in the trap for the dishwasher may have all dried up, since you aren't using it. That would let sewer gas in. Try pouring some water into the dishwasher's drain and see if that stops the smell.|
|it could be a sulfer build up in the drainage of the dishwasher, does it smell like rotten eggy farts? like stink bombs?
if it does, you can buy some grey water tank neutralizer at most stores, its in the RV section or automotive section.
you can also straight up pour bleach in there.
i personally would have it removed and replace it with a functioning used one.
but i cant live without a dishwasher.
Yes, we heat with gas but the smell was present when we first moved in and we didn't have gas hooked up for awhile because our hot water heater is electric so we didn't need it. I have smelled natural gas before and the smell it not quite that strong.
