L spoke to a repairman and he told me that it is probably a soap build up from only using cold water.....he suggested using sugar soap and hot water and let it soak for a few hours and then let it finish a cycle...and surprise surprise it worked, the lint trap is now working and the smell has gone

The fine screen on the lint filter can get an invisible plastic film over it from fabric softener. Oh wait. That was on a drier. Disregard unless yours dries.

My GE gfwh2400loww washer, the pump filter needs to be drained every 1 or 2 times a wash is done..otherwise water stays in, and when you drain it, it smells musty and horrible. I checked the manual,


You should not have to clean filter . Check your hose for clogs ,follow the hose all the way to where it drains into the sewer line. If your sewer line is very high up the pump may not be able to pump out all water efficiently. So some water will flow back down to the pump. If there is a clog up high, the clog will not allow draining. These pumps are strong ,but not that strong. Please let me know what you find. GOOD LUCK FRIEND.

There is a musty smell in the maytag washer even b4 I fill it with water, I've disconneted the hoses & flushed with bleach that did not take care of it,Iv'e run washes without clothes in it...


When a moldy or musty smell develops in a washing machine, many times the smell is coming from the open areas of the agitator. Water along with soap and/or liquid softener sometimes splashes into an open agitator, and when the lid is closed it does not dry out. Instead, mold begins to form, and a musty smell wafts from inside the machine, even after the lid has been opened for an extended period of time. Until the mold is removed the washing machine will continue to smell bad, even if it is used and allowed to air dry with the lid open.The tub can also be the source of the smell. Lint can gather and collect in the holes, and when it does not dry fast enough it ends up smelling musty and moldy. Even the top of the rim can become moldy and musty, but proper cleaning can get rid of the odor.

So that said.To clean the machine,fill to just above the top row of holes in the tub.Add 2 cups of bleach.Let sit for 1-2 hours.Then let the machine run it`s wash cycle.Lastly use bleach water and a rag to wipe the machine down inside and out.If the agitator has a cup on top remove and clean with bleach.Leave the top open so the machine can dry.

Now it should smell better,if so use as normal,and leave the lid open when not in use.

My clothes smell musty after they have been washed. I was told to replace the rubber gasket in our Kenmore front loader he4T by the sears repairman for quite an expense. How can I replace this gasket...


The filter on your pump is probably clogged with lint and stuff. You have to remove the bottom front panel, 3 torx screws underneath. The panel will drop and come off. Drain off the excess water from the hose you see. The white filter cover is right in front. Get yourself a bunch of towels or a good big plastic bag to collect water. Unscrew the filter cover and twist the filter out. Clean out all the stuff and put it back in carefully.

Next: 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 quite hot water with the Affresh pellet with no clothes and run the machine through a cycle. Also helps with any stagnant water smells. Have you cleaned out your pump lately. Put the pellet inside the machine, not in the soap dispenser.
Pl give me a good rating for the free help, thanks.

No need!
Put 3 cups of sugar Soap concentrate in machine and fill. Leave 24 hrs and run a wash cycle without clothes.

If this fails....only option is complete strip and clean of innards of the machine,

Clothes washer does not drain completley


Clear the filter and the pipes between it and the pump, tip the machine back and look under you will see a black pipe from the filter to the pump. Simply remove the pipe and clear it and the pump while your there.

change filters. the filter inside the unit and the one on the side needs to be changed once a yr. (these are not to be washed, only the side filter if foam can be washed ). also flat belt change every 6 months and the v-belt once a yr.
