Get whirlpools new affresh washer tablets. They clean the inside off the machine and kills mold ect. and if used regularly it keeps your washer smelling fresh. They are designed for front load machines but work great in top loaders too. They are available on line at any parts store and are around 8 bucks.

To prevent a smelly washing machine, leave the lid open on the washing machine when a load is removed to allow it time to dry out. If smells do happen, try washing an empty load with hot water and a mixture of baking soda and vinegar. For front loading washing machines, it is vital that you leave the washing machine door open in between loads. You will also need to wipe down the rubber seal of the washing machine. Small bits of debris and hair can become trapped in the crevices. Giving your machine a quick wipe down after each use will prevent smells and mildew. ONCE YOU GET IT CLEANED OUT IT SHOULD BE GOOD AS LONG AS YOU FOLLOW THESE STEPS.
There are also videos on Yu tube under how to clean a washing machine.

Smelly washing machine


put some bleach in the washer and run a rince wash (nothing in the washer) then run 3 more rince washes to clear out all traces of bleach before you put any closes in it,(or do a hot white wash only) this should work ok, when not in use all ways leave the door open if you can to change the air inside your washer it stops them smelling

Smells like old smelly socks


this might be coming from the rubber door seal clean it all the way round make sure holes at bottom are not blocked and the rubber door seal is all clean. also clean the draw so there is no power left in there and it is all clean. also a good thing to do is run it though a cleaning cycle with normal detergent at max temperature that the machine can do. hope this helps.

Fowl Smell


If the smell is a mildew type odor this is common with the newer energy efficient machines. To remove the odor I would suggest using a product called Affresh or Smelly washer. These used on a monthly basis will help eliminate and keep it from coming back. If it is practical to leave the lid open when not in use that will also help. The products I talked about are available at Target, Lowes and grocery stores near the laundry detergent.

Smelly washer!!!!!!


Check the drain hose for gunk then:
Fill up the tub half way with water (small load) put a cup of vinegar a 1/4 cup of baking soda let it foam up then run the washer through a regular cycle empty. If this does not work: you will need to use a commercial mold removing product.
