Question about Whirlpool Duet GHW9150P Front Load Washer
It smells all the time open closed after washing before washing. I am so frustrated. I use the e-soap as suggested and nothing makes a difference.especially my towles they smell as though they were never washed. the drun always smells bad even days after I have last used it. I need help
The following link explains how to minimize wash tub odor, and what generally can cause it:
I personally own one of these washers and have followed this same regiment since I purchased it new 9 years ago. I have never had a mildew or odor problem. Consumers that are not in the habit of using hot water very often will also run into odor and mildew problems, because detergent alone does not always kill bacteria. It is recommended that you run a "Clean Cycle" from time to time, to sanitize. Some newer models have a clean cycle added on the control panel.
NOTE: It is normal to have residual water in the drain lines and in the drain pump. If you need to clean, or check the drain pump, please follow the advice in this next link:
Debris caught in the drain pump reservoir can often cause some unwanted odors.
If the rubber door bellow develops mildew and mold, use a non abrasive pad (the little green pads are considered non-abrasive) and scrub the rubber with bleach diluted with water (50/50 mix). This will often kill and remove unwanted mold and mildew. If the door bellow becomes embedded with mold or mildew, it may have to be replaced in order to get rid of it.
If you establish and maintain a diligent routine, these washers will not mold or smell. Often what seems to be a dream appliance that is supposed to make your life easier, may actually require more attention in order to maintain it properly.
If you have questions or comments, please let me know. I hope this helps you.
