Question about Whirlpool Washing Machines
When in operation the washer machine gives off a strong eggy smell
The fabric softner does not disperse out of the drawer, it is still there after the cycle is finished
Remove the drawer and thoroughly clean out the drawer. They usually have a syphon mechanism which gets blocked. On many, you will find a section of the softener compartment can be removed. Make sure there are no traces of old softener. The eggy smell is due to the enzymes in the detergent not being properly flushed from the machine. Check the waste water pipe is clear of debris and clean out any filters (not all machines have these) - normally under a cover at the front of the machine near the floor. While you have the detergent drawer out, it would be worth cleaning the area as it often gets clogged and covered in detergent or softener, and can block the water feed holes.
After all this cleaning, run the machine on a hot was with no detergents/softeners or laundry in it, to flush it out.
