Smelly water when i run the water in my machine, it smells bad like sewage. i thought it was our water, but upon checking, it was not. we assume it must be something in the washing machine itself but we have no idea where to begin.

Re: smelly water

? How about Filling the machine with a suitable detergent bleach solution leave a couple of hours then pump out. Also this is likely to be a grease/soap crud build up in the pump and drain system So attention to the drain hose, Detach and seal one end and fill with hot detergent and leave then remove the plug to allow to drain. It is the drain area most likely the cause.

Bad smell inside washing machine

I have found that the best solution to clearing smells for your style of machine is to fill unit with hot water wash & put in 3/4 to 1 cup of baking soda. You should repeat this 2 times. I am assuming that the underneath & behind machine have been checked and that the smell is from the machine internally & not externally. Good luck! Regards

Clothes smell like body odor after washing. using tide ultra he2 detergent.

i had what sounds like a similar problem. i complained of our laundry smelling sour then finally like sour sewage and a flooded laundry room. i was told that when its not draining properly, it can create a siphon-effect and actually pull the dirty water back out of the drain lines-yuk! i hope this isnt true.
there was a baby sock stuck in the pump preventing it from draining properly. hope your problem can be remedied as easily.
as for the smelly clothes, i always add 1/2 cup white vinegar to each load. it does wonders for odors.

Unfortunately this is a common issue with low water consumption front loading washers.

Fortunately there is a pretty easy fix. There are products that work great in cleaning out the hidden area that the odors come from. I have put some information on this together, follow the link below to see how to resolve, let me know if is helpful.

Kenmore front load HE washer odor

How old is your machine? Mine is 5 years old, and I just started to get a "sewage" smell in my laundry room this weekend. I disconnected the water return to the sewer line and discovered lots of gunk in the hose, and the connector to the machine was completely dark green. I'm going to replace the hose, and trying to figure out if there is some sort of filter.

We only use He detergents too, so I guess this is something that just happens over time.
