Washing machine smelling


First i hope you have cleaned out your filter. For the smell: Switch from liquid to powder detergent, no fabric softner, not necessary. Clean the big gasket with detergent and run a half load (without clothes of course) very hot cycle with 2 cups of vinegar only. Leave the door open whenever possible. This helps in drying out your washer and preventing mildew. Shut your wall water valve after your wash. Actually you can search by clicking on "ask anything" indicating your problem, this site.
Click helped if really helped.

Washing smells


A lot of machines can suffer from this problem. It is usually down to a bacteria build up between the drum and the tub. The majority of appliances that suffer form this have been used mainly on 40 degree washes and with a biological detergent.
The best way to get rid of this smell is to place two tablespoons of washing soda or soda crystals in the detergent drawer and then run the appliance empty on the 90 degree wash. You may have to repeat this treatment before the smell goes but it will go eventually. Hope you've checked out & cleaned your filter.

Leaves a bad smell on the cloths while they are drying not all the time just every now and again, very disstressing, please advise


Hi,

There are couple reasons for the bad smell . The easy way to remove it is to make a boil wash (with no clothes and detergents) put in the powder's drawer a cup of bicarbonate of soda.

It should clean the machine and move out the bad smell.

Thanks for contacting Fixya.com

Rotten Egg Smell


Make sure the rubber door gasket is clean. Pull it back and clean under and around it. The gasket will collect dirt and begin to mildew causing various odors. Run the machine empty, boil a medium pot of water to almost boiling, then put it in the machine during the wash cycle. This will help clean the lines, during the rinse cycle place a 1/2 cup of vinegar in the unit. Make sure you are using HE detergent. 1-2 tablespoons will due. If your using liquid fabric softner, dilute it by half. These machine use less water than a typical top loader and can't dissolve regular detergent effectively. There by causing your lines to get clogged with gunk.

WT540 Washing machine has a smell coming from it


Based on the front load picture you included with you description...

This usually comes from a build up of soap and dirt that you cannot get to to clean. It is in the inner wall of the outer tub.

You should run a thorough cleaning with a product called Washing Machine Magic. It is designed to reduce this build up over time.

Another way to reduce it is use a very hot wash and put 1 cup of powder dish detergent in the tub before starting it. (yes I know this is a clothes washer). The dish detergent has ingredients to help reduce the odour.

These methods may have to be repeated several times to be 100% effective, but a large part of the odour should be reduced after the first cycle. If more are needed repeat once every couple of weeks until the odour is not noticeable.

The rubber door seal on this model should not accumulate smell but it may have depending upon the machine's age. This will have to be replaced if it has.
