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 several times before the smell goes but it will go eventually.

What could my washer possibly be emminating?


Use adequate vinegar when wash clothes. The main thing is the bacteria inside the drum. Once you make steps to remove that you can get rid of the bad smell

Bad smell in washing machine...clothes smell bad after wash


hi there is a build up of lime and old dirt in the inside of your drum the best thing to get rid of the smell is put a very small amount of bleach in the drum and put your machine on a very hot wash it will help in your hand book it will tell you to use your hot wash with a bit of powder and no cloths at leased once a month i dont know if you use your hottest wash most people dont these days because of the low temp powders, also the best product to use is lim away but you can only get it on usa bases or from the usa you might find someone on line that sells it that will get rid of all the lime thats been built up in your machine if you cant just use a bit of thick bleach hope this was helpful

Hi.
The smell will be coming from inside the drum as you summised.
It is probably caused by the drain in need of cleaning, or more likely a build up of dirt and scum on the door seal cased by doing too many low temperature washes.
Check the seal carefully and if it is stained black, then the only real solution is to replace the seal, and do more high temperature washes

Put the machine on a service wash, (that is a very hot wash with a good quality washing POWDER and no cloths) allow the machine to complete the cycle. This may need to be repeated once a week or month until you are happy the smell has completely gone. If possibly I would avoid liquid soap in future. But that is just my opinion.

Bad smell inside drum and when draining also makes laundry smell


Recommend running it through empty (and without soap) on a long, hot wash cycle a couple of times.

Modern cool cycles don't always wash away all the detergent, and the machine fills up with smelly grey sludge after a while.

WF740 Hotpoint washing machine with bad smell from drum. Tried 95 degree wash but still smells. Door seal slightly blackened but I think smell is from drum too. Any help?


Wash it out with a strong solution of washing soda placed into the drum before you fill the machine


Ps

Run the machine empty through a full hot cycle then run the soda one

The first will soften the deposits and the second should help kill the bacteria that is causing the smell.

Reducing the load so that there is more agitation helps as well

AFTER SPINNING, WATER IS LEFT SOMEWHERE IN THE DRUM. i CAN'T SEE IT BUT CAN HEAR IT AND THE WASHER SMELLS BAD.


Check to see if there's something stuck inside the pump or the drain hose connected to the pump (pump is usually located at the bottom and towards the back of the washing machine).
