You are correct, you must have a P-TRAP. I believe the instructions are talking about not having an xtra trap between the disposal and the existing trap.

A bad odour smell after each wash


check that the gray flexible waste oulet goes as high as it can b4 dropping back down onto waste connection. if the flex comes off your sink trap and drops straight down, food waste from your sink can back up into machine causing smell.

I am instaling a shower under my house and i was hoping to get away with not cutting into the concrete for the drainage, is it possible to raise the shower bottom a foot of the ground for the drainage, and...


Yes, you can raise to avoid the cut by raising shower as long as gravity drain can occur, i.e. you can drain the shower to connect to existing drain lines. Definately put the s-trap in, if no trap then plumbing gas comes back and shower will smell. Remember to put in a plumbing vent or tie in to existing vent.

I have a Whirlpool Duet front loading washer with a smelly trap.


It is normal to have water in the drain lines and drain trap even when the unit is not in use. There's usually about a gallon of residual water in the lower portion of the wash tub, drain line and pump. If you are experiencing sour odors from the washer, the following link can give you some pointers on things to try to help keep the smell from coming back:

Read through the link provided and let me know if you still have problems. I personally own a front loader and have followed this regiment for 9 years now with no odor or mildew problems. I hope this helps you as well.

Washer smells bad


Whirlpool and Tide make a cleaner that you put into the washer and run it through a cycle. Front loaders get a build-up that cannot be cleaned by hand. Make sure you are using a detergent that is marked "HE". Do not overfill the detergent or softener cups. I've heard that other used a lot of bleach in a wash cycle to clear out the smell. Bleach is bad to use if you're on a septic system, though.

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.

Smelly drum


run a load with no clothes, hot water and a gallon or two of bleach and less then 1 drop, very small amount of dish detergent. the dish detergent is used as  surfactant (makes the bleach stick to the interior walls)
run an extra rinse cycle to make sure you get all the bleach out before putting clothes in.
