I just bought a washer and dryer that were used and the previous owner was a smoker. Now all my clothes smell like smoke. Any advice the get the smell out of the machine?


Hello, W/D here.

For a single odor, I would recommend a neutralizing sequence. Use one box of baking soda. Fill the soap dispenser as you would with powdered soap, and pour the remainder into the wash tub. Fill the fabric softener and bleach dispenser cups with an odor remover such as Odor-Cide or Febreze. Add 1/2 the normal amount of detergent for a normal load directly into the tub. Run the washer on the hottest, longest cycle available, with the longest, hottest rinse cycle available (usually this is the sanitary cycle). When the cycle has finished, run another sanitary cycle with 2 cups of bleach in the tub, fill the soap dispenser, bleach dispenser and the softener dispenser with bleach also.
After this cycle runs, run another, normal cycle with white vinegar in the tub and dispensers. This can be a normal cycle.
After all of these cycles, one last regular cycle with about 1/2 the normal amount of detergent in the dispenser should get all of the smell neutralized in the machine.

black stains on door


If it is inside, it is probably mold growing. Front loaders are much more susceptible to mold growth as they seal up tighter, and we all tend to keep the door closed when it is not in use.
Clean the inner door and bellows surfaces with a 50/50 bleach/water solution, applying liberally, and dump the rest into the tub of the washer. Add 1 more cup of bleach to the tub. Fill all of the dispenser cups with bleach. Run the hottest , longest cycle available with the hottest rinse cycle available. For us, it is the "sanitary" cycle. Run a normal cycle immediately thereafter to flush out residual bleach, and leave the door open. The cleaning along with the air drying will keep the mold from growing, and reduce the odors that these machines are famous for. Leave the door open between loads.

Best regards, --W/D--

I have a GE model WHDRE526E1WW washmachine.The complaint was it would not spin. I checked the agitator coupler and the washmachine agitates but won't spin or fill with water. I suspect it may be the control.


Try suspecting the tub end of the water level tube being plugged with " goop " so that the washer thinks it is still full of water, thus will not fill or spin. Take the front panel off by releasing the push in clips at the top of the front panel, in the seam where it meets the washer's top. Now, find the tube at the left side of the outer tub and pull it off the tub. Clean it out or cut off an inch (don't do the cutting thing more than one time) and replace after using a thin wire to clean out the tub end of the attachment. To help prevent this from re-occuering, every few months, fill the washer to the lowest setting with the hottest water, no clothes, and several cups of bleach, and run the longest cycle you have (with no clothes, of course). Make sure to rinse out the tub on a higher water level before you wash a load of clothes.
