I have a strange odor


It is normal for all models of washing machines to have a gallon or two of water left inside the bottom of the washer and in the drain pump. This is not the cause of odor. The smell is being caused by residue left on the inside of the plastic outer tub.


The best way to clean a stinky washer is to use a washer cleaner that is able to be used with clothing in the washer. The added bulk of the laundry will raise the water level to include the splash area 3-5 inches above the normal waterline. This splash area always has the worst buildup.
After the odor is gone you'll need to change washing habits to keep it away.

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.

Random filling of the tub, door open, leaks on floor.


The only thing that can admit water with the power off to the machine is a bad Fill valve. Replace

Tub smells like mildew. Possible water still in tub but not visable. When tub is shaken hard by hand, slight sound of water sometimes. Still cleans well.


You will never get all of the water out of a washing machine using the pump

The only way to do it is to take the drain hose out of the standpipe remove all clips so that it lays flat on the floor and put it into a bucket

Even then there will still be a little bit left in.

Run two very hot programs witha good dose of washing soda placed in the drum before you fill it

Leave the door open when the machine has finished to allow it to dry off

When machine is not in use, with door open, tub will have water


You have a faulty fill valve

If you want to check which one, try turning off the cold supply only before you go to bed

If the washer has water in it next morning it is the hot valve that has gone faulty if it is dry then it is the cold one

They are easy to change and can be bought from a number of suppliers

Flooding everywhere


You are right. Sounds like the washer is not being told to shut off. If the washer will stop filling when the power is shut off to it: Open the front panel by using a putty knife to push in on the clips about two inches in from each side at the seam of the front panel and the washer top. Tilt washer front panel forward and lift off bottom pegs. Pull the tube off the outer tub at the left side, cut off and inch and a half, poke a thin wire into the hole on the tub end and remove, then put the tube back on. (do this with the tub empty) You can only do this one or two times before the tube starts to get too short, so from now on, every two or three months, fill the machine to the lowest water level with hot water and several cups of bleach and run a cycle, including rinses, to help prevent the goop from reforming in the tube area again.
If machine still fills when power is off, replace water valve.
