SOURCE: Why does the washer smell like stale water when I lift the lid

Buy whirlpool affresh washer tablets. They kill the smell in front load washers. But they work great for top loaders too!!! They are only about 10 bucks and all you have to do is read the instructions on the package and run your washer through its cycle. Then your smell should go away.

the only way is to run a empty load of warm water w/heavy bleach after running cycle wipe door boot/gasket out with like kitchen cleaner w/bleach making sure you get in between the tub and the front panel on the boot. then you have to ALWAYS leave the door open to dry. TRY THIS AND LET ME KNOW

SOURCE: Stale odor in machine and on towels and clothes. I

Towel mildew smell is being transferred from the washer. The washer must be cleaned first. The problem is not "brand specific" all clothes washers have mold growth to a certain degree. Bleach or vinegar will kill the mold inside your washer but won't remove it or the residue it grows on thereby making the situation worse because it leaves a "base" for more detergent to collect on and more mold will grow.

Washing machine mold / mildew odor 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.

SOURCE: my washer stinks. I've cleaned the rubber gasket,

It sometimes helps to use automatic dishwasher detergent in the machine with no clothes in it, with hot water. Also be sure to use HE dertergent

My Samsung refer RS2630AWW stinks. Can't find source of smell. No drain pan under unit. Any ideas?


In any refrigerator there may be stinks due to lack of cleaning drops of ice cream,buttermilk and milk or any cool drinks which by mistake rest in cooling compartments.

Solution: Remove power. And also empty your fridge. Now with little soap watered cloth(wet) clean indoor compartments all. And Within 5 minutes clean with dry cloth. Keep open the door on sun shine. or in heat room. After 4 to 6 hrs, reuse it. No smell will be there. It's advisable to do this type of cleaning once in 3 months at least. Helpful?
