Question about Kenmore 44832 Front Load Washer
I have this wet, flaky, gritty brown substance that comes out of the washing machine in the water. I noticed it in the nylon I have over the hose to catch any lint, etc. It is very moldy smelling and disgusting. At one point, it was about a cup or so that came out. My clothes, don't have a moldy smell, but the inside of the machine does, when you stick your head in--I also get a sewer smell when it runs. I've been told it has nothing to do with the pipes, waterline etc. I tried running it with bleach and running it empty and the stuff keeps coming. It's a Kenmore Elite HE3 front loader. HELP!!
The filter on your pump is probably clogged with lint and
stuff. You have to remove the bottom front panel, 3 torx screws
panel will drop and come off. Drain off the excess water from the hose
see. The white filter cover is right in front.
Get yourself a bunch of towels or a good big plastic bag to collect
Unscrew the filter cover and twist the filter out. Clean out all the
put it back in carefully.
Next: You can use Affresh to clean your front loader. Deposits of soap and other such things can be stuck around the inside tub of your washer. Try this product, it works great on all front loaders. Use hot water with the Affresh pellet with no clothes and run the machine through a cycle. Also helps with any stagnant water smells. Have you cleaned out your pump lately. Put the pellet inside the machine, not in the soap dispenser.
Pl give me a good rating for the free help, thanks.
