Horrible damp smell in my easi logic 1500 washing machine, what's the best cause of action?


Check the drainage of the machine.nothing like stagnant water sitting in the hoses and bottom of machine to cause smells.first check the penny / button trap for coins or debris as this will cause unsatisfactory emptying .do a rinse cycle with no cloths in machine.Get some calgon or anything that removes washing machine or dishwasher lime scale.then do a full wash without clothes on 60 degrees or above with small amount of bleach and lime scale remover.make sure the room is well ventilated.never overfill machine with dirty laundry when washing as this prevents the rinse cycles from removing bad water completely.try leaving the door slightly open between washes but only if you have no pets or children to prevent build up of damp spores.

I smell gas it running what would cause this ?


This problem requires IMMEDIATE attention! The igniter is failing periodically but the smell of gas indicates the gas valve is stuck partially open.

Why is there a damp smell when I open the door?


Front load washing machines have to be hermetically sealed so they don't leak. Of course opposite of their top-loader cousins. :) In your case, Try cleaning the drum and the door seal and also remove any and all soap residue that you can find. Then try running an empty load with vinegar and/or Borax. You can try bleach, too if that doesn't work. When it's all clean and smells 'normal' again, be sure and keep the door cracked open when you're done using it from now on. Being closed and sealed all the time is why mold and mildew have grown, causing it to smell bad. I hope this helps! :) -Jason

Smells damp


There is a cleaning solution that needs to be run through your machine, routinely. This helps eliminate the smell issue. It only gets worse if you do not run the cleaner.

SMELLY WASHING MACHINE


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.

Clothes Smell Musty and Damp


It sounds like a build up of washing residue. Clean inside the door seal and do a very hot wash with a bit of washing powder and no clothes. Repeat this once a week until smell has gone.
