SOURCE: Egg Smell

We fell prey to the same desire to have the state of the art, economical and supposedly gentler on your clothing front loading washing machine. Bosch WFK 2401 and I have found a solution but it is not pretty for those of you who have a washer not hidden in a laundry room.

I keep the kick plate off at the base of the front of the washer. Using a low profile pan, an 8 x 8 cake pan is about right and immediately after every wash plase the small drain hose over the pan and open it. The pan fills about half way with water that is left in the bottom of the drain system. Doing this prevents the next load from being exposed to the rotten egg water.

It must be done at the end of every load. I too keep the front door open when not in use and pull the detergent/softener draw open as well.

Good luck. Can hardly wait to justify that I have lived with this long enough to purchase a new top loader!

Run a wash cycle with only some bleach in it. That works for us everytime ours gets a bit stinky... Good luck!

SOURCE: burning smell during spin cycle on frigidaire washing machine

Open lid as you would load clothes and hold the inner drum with all the holes in it. Give it a manual turn left, then right. If it spins in both ways the main bearing is gone. This is not a DIY because the new bearing has to be pressed on at a machine shop, or an appliance repair shop.

Washer doesn't fill with water and begin wash cycle. I can hear it instantly draining out rather than fill, and has ran my well dry. We replaced the water pump a month ago, and it washed a few loads of...


Sounds like siphoning. This can happen if your drain pipe is too low and you run the drain hose right into it, or if there isn't any kind of air gap between the drain hose and pipe. Usually it shows up when trying to fill for the rinse cycle - it drains as fast as it fills. Or it might not fill at all. Order a "siphon break kit". They're cheap and easy to install

ROPER RAS6233KQO T.L.W.-Won't fill/rinse with cold water


Most washers have a small screen at the water inlet valve. They can be accessed simply by revoving the hose from the back side of the washer, using a small screw driver you can carefully remove the screens and clean them out under a faucet.That may be all that is wrong.
