It should completely empty the m/c.
If it is plumbed into your sink waste this could be cause of smell, also if it is connected to your waste make sure the hose is above the bottom of the sink trap,as water can sometimes syphon back into the washer from the sink. Remove hose from sink connection and clean and check for obstruction.
I doubt your pump is faulty.
If it goes into a stand pipe make sure this is not partially blocked, and again clean stand pipe with a strong disinfectant or similar

Plz rate my solution.
Thanks.

If drain hose is connected to a standpipe check that it's inserted no more than 4". You may be getting a syphoning situation that is allowing gray water to contaminate clean clothes.

The washer smells. I have run 3 Affresh tablets and a bleach cycle and have left the washer open all night. However, the washer still smells. What else do I need to do?


Hi, I once experienced a similar, bad smell problem with my washer. What it turned out to be was a small sock being stuck in the water discharge pipe. This stuck sock eventually began to mold and subsequently smell. Once removed, my problem went away. Also, you can try running your machine with vinager or bleach with NO clothes. This weill remove any lingering oder. Hope this helps. Good Luck!

There is a terrible smell from my washer


Hi, what happens is that water sits at the bottom of the discharge pipe, as well as a build up of "gunk", which is a great breeding ground for bacteria and such. So during the first rinse out, the smelly water and gunk is discharged into the drain, and the smell comes up from the laundry tub drain. Pour a few cups of bleach into the discharge hose and let it sit for an hour. This will kill all the nasties. Then just run the machine once through to pump out the bleach.

Mildew inside bellow.


is this a question? I will assume that you are saying that there is mildew growing below something, possibly the drum, inside the washer. The only way to definately get it out is disassembly and thorough cleaning. Check your discharge hoses to make sure they are not clogged, leaving water in the washer rather than discharging all of it. If you want to kill the mildew/smell, run an empty load or just some rags but throw a cup or two of bleach in the washer. The chlorine will kill the mildew growths. Run a rinse cycle or two before your next load of darks to get the chlorine out (especially if you are having a discharge problem) so you don't inadvertantly bleach your clothes.

why not just discharge into the laundry tub which will allow the water to build up but get away at its own pace through tub drain

If the trap is fine I susupect your vent is probably restricted. If you have an inline vent ( a spring loaded rubber diaphram device at the top of the vent pipe) this part may have failed and need replacing if not have the plumber come out and rod the vent stack for the washer itself. If you are new to the area you may have a dual water system where the washer is ran off of a well and the rest of the house off a filtered source. The washer may have also been tied into a water header prior to the filtration system. In the Southern part of the US there are swampy areas that have shallow water wells that have a high sulfur content and give off the odor of rotten eggs, as I do not know your location this could be true also.
Hope this helps you.

Water Sounds


Friend,
ngfam1 At your service!


This is normal for the Neptune!
I used to have a Neptune and I sold them too!!
The machine is wringing out the clothes good??
The Neptune comes new with water in ti from the test run!
All the water never gets totally discharged. This is one reason why everyone complains about the mold, musky or even stinky smell of the Neptune! Every day i have people here asking what too do about the moldy wet smell!
SERIOUS!!!!!
I do tell them to run the washer once a week without clothes and with hot water and 1/4 cup of bleach. And then make suer to do only white clothes directly after wards as not to get a drop of beach water on a colored article of clothing!
Then leave the door open after every load when not in use!
That's Maytag!!!!!!!!
GOOD THING WHIRLPOOL JUST BOUGHT THEM OUT LAST YEAR!
Perhaps they will make some good changes!!

Hope this helps and makes you feel a little better as to some water sounds! HOW OLD IS THE WASHER??????
