Why does my dishwasher smell like a wet dog?

It's highly likely that the smell is due to the water within your dishwasher being mildly contaminated, which causes the smell to be faint. After a full cycle, add a little bleach to the tub below the dish rack, close the dishwasher and wait an hour before removing the dishes.
