The water inlet valve could be malfunctioning or the screen at the hose fitting could be clogged. Check screen or replace valve on back of washer were the hoses connect.

Bad smell inside washer


Every Frontload washer on the market today has a smell issue or potential to have one quite easily.In fact the smell problem has been there since these Frontload washers were introduced. The real kick is instead of recognizing the problem and addressing it some of the manufacturers have even started selling consumers cleaners to help reduce the smell problem. Yes they are profiting on the sale of cleaners, that deal with an issue they created. The closest they have come to addressing the issue is adding an extra cycle to your washer strictly for cleaning the washer. Basically you clean your washer so it can clean your clothes. Why didn't the salesperson tell you about the issue? Maybe because it was his first day, but probably because he was trying to sell you a washer.
Now all this said, is there anything you can do? First and foremost make absolutely sure you are using a HE (high efficency) detergent. Frontload washers use a very little amount of water and the HE detergent is not only concentrated so you use less but it is not as thick as regular detergent so it has a better chance of washing away clean. Concentrated detergent is NOT HE detergent and still may pose an issue if used. If you Don't know what HE detergent is, call the manufacturer, your grocery store, or the sales guy who sold it to you. On average you will never need more than 2 tablespoons per load. DO NOT go by the cap fill lines ever. These lines make the assumption everyone has the same water, load the washers the same and have equally dirty clothes. More is NEVER better in a Frontload. Bottom line is you want to make sure all the detergent is getting cleaned out of the washer after each use. If any remains it will start to deteriorate and deteriorating detergent can smell.
Secondly when you are done using the unit for the day, use a towel to dry off the rubber door boot and the inner door. Don't be afraid to pull the boot some to get as much of the water off as possible. The rubber is pretty thick and sturdy. And if at all possible leave the door open as long as possible to help what water is left inside the washer to evaporate. The washers have vents on the back but they do not work as well as venting on a top-load washer. Basically the water drops will collect in the bottom after usage and if the door gets closed that water can get stagnant, grow bacteria and even mold. These will also cause lovely fragrances to tickle your nose.
Finally if you want to try some of the washer machine cleaners they may help some to clean away any buildup that may be already inside the washer. However it seems silly to pay so much for a washer and have to continually maintain a problem that is caused by the washer with cleaners produced by the washers manufacturer. If you try and cut back as much as possible (2 tablespoons) on detergent, and allow as much water to be cleaned out or evaporate the smells will resolve themselves. A good test to use if you think you have a buildup is fill the washer on it hottest cycle with the drum empty. Let it wash around for a few minutes and just look inside and see if you see suds. Suds in the washer tells you soap is still in the tub somewhere.

Maytag the washer quits and a f20 or f11 shows up


Its a water inlet problem (no water or insufficient water supply) check your washer inlets, maybe the water valves are off or you don't have enough water pressure.

When empty, I can turn inside and sounds like there is water sloshing inside


This is not a problem actually. That is quite normal for top load washers. What happens is when the pump comes on to expel the used water it only runs long enough to empty the inner drum. The outer drum still has a little bit of water inside to act as a pea trap of sorts. This keeps undesirable smells from reentering your pipes and causing bad Oder's in your home. As long as your cloths come out clean and partially dried from the spin cycle then your washer is working correctly. Hope this helps. Good luck.

The place where hot and cold water go into the machine is leaking water.


hi ,
the hot and cold hoses should have a small rubber washer inside the coupling , it is quite common for these to fall out when the machine has been disconnected ,also the couplings which are made of a plastic material are quite fragile and can be easily split or cracked by over tightening them ., the solution is to replace the rubber washers , or replace the entire hoses

hope this helps

My clothes smell musty after they have been washed. I was told to replace the rubber gasket in our Kenmore front loader he4T by the sears repairman for quite an expense. How can I replace this gasket...


The filter on your pump is probably clogged with lint and stuff. You have to remove the bottom front panel, 3 torx screws underneath. The panel will drop and come off. Drain off the excess water from the hose you see. The white filter cover is right in front. Get yourself a bunch of towels or a good big plastic bag to collect water. Unscrew the filter cover and twist the filter out. Clean out all the stuff and 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 quite 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.

Washer quits during cycle


That is a SUDS LOCK. Open the front panel to access the drain pump filter. Clean it out. Run several cycles without any detergent to clear out the soap being retained in the washer. If you are not using H.E. soap, switch to it. Use the amount of detergent specified on the package. Front load machines will not work correctly with excessive soap and the laundry gets no cleaner with more soap.Also use high water levels not medium or low. Use hot water whenever possible to reduce the suds residue.

Washer is leaking while it is just setting still.


The first thing that I would check, is the hot & cold water hoses, that connect in the back of the washer, to see if they are tight. If they are tight and still leaking from there, then the rubber washer, inside the brass fitting part needs replaced. If that doesn't help, then disconnect the power, and water hoses, then turn the washer over and check the water hose underneath, to see if its leaking. One of these hoses has to be the problem.
