Buy whirlpool affresh washer tablets. They kill the smell in front load washers. But they work great for top loaders too!!! They are only about 10 bucks and all you have to do is read the instructions on the package and run your washer through its cycle. Then your smell should go away.

Smell of stale water from Avanti compact washer


It may not be draining very well.

I have a front load washer and run a cycle of a few cups of bleach through mine every couple months.

I also add vinegar to most washes but that's due to my teenage son's athletic wear.

Both those things do the trick.

You shoudl probably check the mechanics as well but the above is a stop gap.

Clothes stink after washed in lg front loading machine


You may have already found a solution, but I had this exact same problem. I ran the tub clean cycle with bleach and then switched to a powder HE detergent. I found some other posts that said that liquid HE detergent has some thing in it that causes that smell and the tub build up (not sure what?). I was hesitant that that could really make a difference but it has. It has only been a week, but so far everything smells great. Definitely worth a try.

When drying clothes there is a smell


Hi there, sorry I don't have a solution to your problem but I just wanted to say I have the same problem. I thought I was going mad, all my clothes stink when they come out of the dryer and sometimes they're still really damp. Ithought it was just me and I've even changed all my washing powders etc. If you do find a way to solve the problem can you let me know. Many thanks. Lelly2003
