Odor in washer

My daughter washed some things that had dog hair on them. Now my washer smells like a wet dog. Is there anyway to lean a filter or some other area that might be causing odor.

Clothes have a smell after washed and have tried using tide solution for front loading washing machines is there a cleanout in this model


The washer (Unless used) should not introduce any odors into the wash.
The likely culprit is your water. See about getting a sample of clear water and check to smell if the odor is present. If it is, filter it, and contact your water company.
If your washer is used, it is likely to have a filter that needs to be changed. There maybe debris in the filter contaminating the wash.

Where do i find the filters on a front load kenmore he2 i believe the filter is clogged with dog hair but i do not know where to find them and i cant find my manual the washer will wash but not drain all...


Front lower panel should have three bolts near the floor. Remove those and panel should slide down. There you will find a plug. once you unscrew it water will pour out, be ready.

I use the washer almost every day, now it has an odor-like old wet laundry-we had some work done cisterns and the paint left a white film in the water. could this be the cause of the odor?


Do you use liquid detergent? If so...stop...I had the same problem...and tried to eliminate all the posibilities. Then from forums...I realized that it was my detergent. I changed to Gain HE..instant change in smell of clothes...Hope this helps..
You could also check your lint filter. Depending on what type of washer you have...depends on where it is located. :)

The clothes smell if left in the washer wet overnight


Wet clothes should not be left in the washer over night as mold will develop and cause a moldy odor. You could run the load through a rinse cycle with fabric softener or baking soda to get rid of the odors.
