Cleaning the machine. pipe???

Hi there My washing machine obviously keeps on getting blocked somewhere because my washing comes out very smelly. I have lost my manual. Am I supposed to clean some part of it. I can see no simple area. Do I have to remove the back, because that seems to be a bit over the top. Please help. Many thanks. Ian

Re: cleaning the machine. pipe???

Are you using liquid detergent? this has the effect when used for long periods of making the machine smell like drains. if so, put on a boil wash with no clothes and revert to powder detergent. there is a filter which needs clearing if drain is access, remove bottom panel at back. filter is located in large pipe leading from tub to pump on the lhs. undo this pipe at the tub end and the filter is inside. some water will come out so be prepared. unplug from mains first

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.

Water wont empty after wash alarm keeps buzzing and red light shows a picture of a tap

Please check if there is any block in the water outlet pipe. after cleaning the outlet pipe, you can switch off the machine for an hour or so. and then again switch it on. This may help. Please get back to us if any more help is needed.

Smells coming from machine, leaving washed item's smelly

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.

A mouldy smell is often a sign of trapped residual water stagnating somewhere in the machine often just inside the door seal at the low point or in the filter.

Providing there is nothing like a old sock trapped in the pump or filter then there is not much you can do other than to dry the door seal and powder dispenser after use.

Please remember to rate this solution.
