Try reliable parts. There are many locations across Canada and the US. You might also get the Affresh tablets at an appliance retailer or hardware store but I'm not sure.

Here are some (mixed) reviews of the affresh tablets. http://www.buzzillions.com/dz_708669_whirlpool_affresh_washer_cleaner_reviews#reviews

but like I said in my post, you may have to run a few full cycles with the tablets to get a smelly washer clean and then maintain it by using the product every 1-3 months or so.

You could also try this product: http://www.smellywasher.com/

This is an review on their site:
"I have to tell you I am very pleased. Having an acute sense of smell, I always get teased for smelling odors that others don't. For about 6 months we've had a mold/mildew odor in our 1 1/2 year old washer. I found your site on the internet and ordered SmellyWasher.
I can tell you my husband was amazed at all the mold coming up and I felt "vindicated". Here is the other interesting side of things. Coinciding with the smell of the constant mold/mildew for the last 6 months has been the fact that I have been constantly sick. I came down with cold after cold after respiratory sickness along with the rest of the family since Thanksgiving. I was literally getting sick of being sick. The last bout was bronchitis with whooping cough.
After I did the cleaning out of the washer with your product and removed all the mold/mildew, I have NOT gotten sick since and have had 2-3 weeks without any respiratory problems. I have come to believe that it has something to do with me cleaning out the mold, and no mold residue on towels or clothing. My husband is coming to believe this also. It's so nice to breath in and NOT smell the mold.......
I love your product and have told several people about it.

Persistent or returning washer odor is a sign of remaining residue. The area of heaviest buildup is almost invariably just above the normal waterline where suds and soiled water splash up. Cleaning cycles in an empty washer do not reach this "splash area".
The best way to remove the odor is to use a cleaner that can be used with clothing. The added bulk of the laundry will raise the water level to include the splash area.

Odor inside the machine


Hi,

Odor in the machine or clothes is a common problem with front loading machines that use a small amount of water. Fortunately there is a solution. There is a couple of cleaning products out there that work great to help this.

- Affresh
- Smelly Washer

They can be found where you buy detergent. I have found the Affresh to work the best but have heard great things about Smelly Washer too.

Here is a link to a page I put out that tells a bit more. Let me know if this was helpful to you.

Thanks

Don’t wait for the machine to jam to look into your filter.

You can use Affresh to clean your front loader. Deposits of soap and other such things can be stuck around the inside tub of your washer. Try this product, it works great on all front loaders. Use very hot water with the Affresh pellet with no clothes and run the machine through a cycle. Also helps with any stagnant water smells. Put the Affresh pellet inside the machine, not in the soap dispenser.

You can give me a ‘very helpful’ rating for the free help, can't you. Thanks.

Clean washer reminder---what do i do when this indicator lights?


This is just a factory setting that reminds you to clean the washer to avoid that musty smell. You can buy tablets called Affresh or other similar cleaners for washing machines. They sell these items at Target, Walmart, Lowes and Home Depot. You can also substitue 1 Cup of Bleach in the washer. Then once you add whatever solution you have decided to clean it with you simply select the wash cycle on the machine called "Clean Washer with Affresh" Once you have done this the light should go out. And if you were getting the Sd code it should also be gone. You can also reset this by pushing the button next to the light that says Reset clean washer reminder. Hope this helps!! :)

Buy whirlpools new affresh washer cleaner. They are tablets that you run through the washer cycle with the hottest water setting. They kill the black mold and keeps it from coming back if used regularly.

My Washer STINKS!!!


Wipe out the door (inside the door-pull the rubber back with a javex cloth or something all around the ring). Buy Affresh.........do three loads on the hottest cycle (still wiping all the **** out after each wash) each with an Affresh tablet. If you can't get it......pour a cup of Javex in the bleach dispenser and do as above.

Good luck!

That is not what it is. I would recommend either going to the website affresh.com or best buy/home depot carry this product

Its called Affresh, comes in a green package 3 tablets in each package. Retails at 6.99$ (not sure about in store prices)

Front loads can not drain all water and residue because of gravity. This builds up and causes molding/odor issues in some units

Affresh was solely created to resolve this and replace the Bleach Clean Procedure.

Easy to use, put tablet directly in tub, no clothes or detergent, hot water, normal cycle selection and run it. In your case the idea is to run 3 consecutive washes (1 table per wash) then once monthly after that(1 wash same directions but only the first time you do 3 washes). This will resolve the issues, i use it and buy it for my family and friends.
