Question about Kenmore 24722 Top Load Washer

Remove top from Kenmore 101.24722300 washer

I have a mildew smell from the inside of the washer and want to remove the top to see if a piece of clothing has become trapped between the basket and the tub. How does the top come off? Do I have to remove the rear panel to access fasteners holding the top to the cabinet? Most other washers have a couple of clips in the front, and the top rotates up, hinged at the back.

Kenmore 2600 TOP LOADER smells like Mildew. I can hear water sloshing around under drum. Is that Normal?


The drain on all washers have this issue. Unless the drain hose runs down hill, when the pump stops, water runs back into the machine that was in the hose but was not drained.

Mildew smell inside wash tub of my Whirlpool Cabrio


Apparently it's a common fault (among others) with this brand/model of washer; as Whirlpool has dedicated a page to it.

Strong mildew smell in washer is making cloths & towels smell bad, how do you get rid of the problem?


if you look inside washer there is a rubber rim on the inside around the openning. Look inside and you will find where the stink is coming from. Keep door open when not in use and wipe inside of rubber trim to keep the mildew out.

I use tilex sometimes and do a rinse spin.

Our towels and clothes have a mildew/musty smell. when I spin the stainless drum inside, i can hear water sloshing around.


Towel mildew odor is transferred from the washer to towels and clothes. The washer must be cleaned first. After cleaning the washer and towels washing habits must change to stop mold smell from returning.

Washing machine mold / mildew is caused by:
#1 cause is overuse of detergents. Detergent companies are notorious for instructing to use too much detergent. Especially with soft water or when using liquid detergent no more than 1 tbsp of any detergent should be used.
#2 most common cause is using fabric softener because it's dispensed in the rinse cycle and will coat the inside of the outer tub with residue that is a food source for mold to grow.
#3 using only cold water for washing is fine but makes preventative maintenance very important. A weekly hot soak will dissolve odor-causing residue from inside your washer.
#4 not using the washer. If the clothes washer isn't used very often maintenance is especially important. If leaving for a vacation it's a good idea to clean your washer. Do a search to "remove washer odor" to read just how big the problem is. There are all natural washer cleaners that will also remove mildew odor from towels and clothing after the washer has been cleaned.

I have a Kenmore 'Elite' front loading washer that stinks


Have you been leaving the door cracked open after washing a load? If not, mildew will form and smell. If you have, then it would be something else. Respond with any questions.

Laundry smells like mildew after washing


Front load washers retain water that you cant see or get to. There are cleaners for washing machines available. I clean mine every month with alot of bleach , try pouring a half gallon of bleach in the soap insert on a normal wash cycle and an extra rinse would not hurt no clothes of course.

Kenmore washer smells/mildew on rubber


The smell problem is actually because of the softener....its nassssty stuff it coats the interior of the washer and forms a grease like residue. I would use Washer Magic (available at all appliance parts retailers) (only half the container in front loaders) and a hot wash. Also keep spraying the boot with bleach and water soluiton every few hours it will dissappear after awhile. please rate my help
