There are no filters to be cleaned on a washing machine. One way to help the odor from a washing machine is to do one large load with nothing in it, and use 2 cups of ammonia.

Let me know if this helps

SOURCE: i cant get the filter out of my washing machine help please

Sometimes a bigger object might block the filter knob, and make it impossible to screw out. Then the only way is to remove the end of the sump hose attached to the filter and remove the stuck object.
(In my filter this object was an Umbraco key) :-)

SOURCE: loads of slimey grey water in filter drawer and horrible smells

First of all, you need to confirm if the leak is from the filter or the pump.
You can replace the filter seperately to the pump.
If you replace the filter, and it still leaks, then you are going to have replace the pump.
I would suggest that that you check and clean if needed the outlet pipe where the water enters the outside waste pipe.
Make sure that you do a boil wash periodically, to ensure that the drum and other internal parts are clean.
Clean the door seal and dry after each wash, it helps to leave the door slightly open
Please leave any comments that may have as regards to my suggestions.
Thankyou.

SOURCE: Stinky grey goo in my Hotpoint WMA20 washing machine

you can only change the seal as this is a common fault with low tep washing Follow these steps to replace your door seal:

For all Free appliance repair videos visit our VIDEO TUTORIALS
Disconnect all power to the machine first!!

1 Locate the outer clamp band securing the seal to the door rim on the washing machine and examine it carefully for holes or tears. Many can be prised off with a flat-bladed screwdriver they have a spring system holding them, but some have a tensioning arrangement that has to be loosened.
2 After removing the outer clamp band, locate the inner one securing the seal to the drum and establish how this is secured. It may be necessary to loosen a clip, or you may be able to prise the band off with a flat-bladed screwdriver. Some are like very large Jubilee clips that you have to undo usually from the top.
3 Once the clamp bands have been removed, use both hands to pull the seal away from the inner drum rim. Some machines have a water spout holes that will have to be lined up. Others have a drain holes.
4 Rubbing a drop of washing up liquid into the groove on the door seal/gasket that locates on the drum makes fitting the new seal easier.
5 the new washing machine door seal should be fitted by locating the drain holes at the bottom of the seal first then push it on with both hands working opposite directions towards the top. This is quite hard if you have never done it before.
6 refit the inner band remembering this must be tensioned correctly for it to be water tight.
7 now fit the outer band and the test the machine for any leaks,

SOURCE: Smelly front loader washing machine.

You may have to do this 2 times and you will never find this in any manual. Use 1/4 cup "Powdered" Dishwashing soap and 1 cup of bleach in an empty tub cycle. Run a load of older dark clothes or non flammable rags FIRST after doing this the first time. If they come out with streaks run the cycle of 1/4 cup Powdered dishwashing soap and 1 cup bleach again. Same routine after 2nd cleaning cycle... dark clothes check for anything out of the ordinary. You should not have to do it a 3rd time unless your machine is really gunked up. Hopefully your using HE type soaps in your front loader. Non HE laundry soaps will cause the smelly machine also.

Thanks for using FixYa.
