Horrible damp smell in my easi logic 1500 washing machine, what's the best cause of action?


Check the drainage of the machine.nothing like stagnant water sitting in the hoses and bottom of machine to cause smells.first check the penny / button trap for coins or debris as this will cause unsatisfactory emptying .do a rinse cycle with no cloths in machine.Get some calgon or anything that removes washing machine or dishwasher lime scale.then do a full wash without clothes on 60 degrees or above with small amount of bleach and lime scale remover.make sure the room is well ventilated.never overfill machine with dirty laundry when washing as this prevents the rinse cycles from removing bad water completely.try leaving the door slightly open between washes but only if you have no pets or children to prevent build up of damp spores.

I have an LG washer that smells like rotten clothes. My clothes come out smelling real bad. I checked inside and noticed that the rubber seal around the door is holding moldy rotton gunk. It's not self cleaning that part of the washer. There are drain holes in the bottom that seem to not be doing the job. The model is LG Tromm 4.0 ulta capacity steam washer.


Run a cup each of baking soda and vineger thru a hot wash. Might have to do this a couple of time if smell really bad.

Take out the unit where the liquid soap, softner, etc goes and clean by hand.

Soak a cloth in vinegar and clean the inside of the rubber around the tub.

And finally DO NOT LEAVE THE DOOR CLOSED IF NOT IN USE.

Smelly washer


The disgusting smell is from using too much detergent, using softener or from using only cold water for washing.

The area of buildup is just above the normal waterline where suds and soiled water splash up and don't get rinsed out. To clean this area: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ua6OJPn0-fU

The added bulk of the laundry will raise the water level to include the "splash area" intermittent pausing to soak is also a good tip in extreme cases.
