I have a whirlpool cabrio washing machine. I have a problem. Our clothes are coming out smelling musty and nasty. They dont start smelling until they are wet, like with sweat Or the towels when we dry off...


If you dont wash whites with clorine bleach, you may want to every once in a while. Clorine kills germs and backteria which can smell. washer pumps do not get 100% of the water out.

After final rinse and spin cycle clothes are still wet


I can't solve this but am having a similar problem. There is no water in the tub but the spin cycle does not get enough water out of the clothes and they're very wet. This causes the towels especially... to smell really bad. The tub is very loose. How can this be fixed.

Clothes have "dirty dishrag" smell after washing


If you open the door of your Neptune, you'll notice a small trough between the door gaskets (inner and outer) There is a drain at the bottom that can get blocked by lint and other funky stuff. Next time you do a load of towels, take a small dirty towel and wipe that area of your machine out real well. Secondly load a slightly smaller load in your machine. Be sure to use a HE compatible soap...less foaming- it does make a difference.. Also the swishy slushy sound is normal and there is liquid in the drum for balancing...it's normal.. I think with a clear door drain, a bit smaller load .you'll find it won't be smelly.. I've got one of these and the only time it gets ordoriforous is when I've jammed it to max capacity. Let me know if all this helps you out. k

Laod with bath towels won't spin out


hi, you may find that the towels when wet are to heavy for the belt to grip the drum if it spins with normal clothes in you need to reduce the load when you wash your towels, hope this helps.

Towels smell oily and moldy--really stink


Don't use fabric softener. I had the same problem and read somewhere to stop using the fabric softeners. I don't know why but after about two cycles (they smelled really bad) it worked! I always used fabric softeners with out a problem but one day I just started getting REALLY smelly towels. I always take my wet wash out as soon as the cycle ends and dry it completely so I was surprised when they smalled so bad. Give it a try.

Mildew smell on cloths


The brand of your front loader is not that material on this issue. What is happening is that your old top load washer may have used as much as 45 gallons of water per cycle, while some front loaders use as little as 12. Because of the low water use, you must cut back on the additives you are using. Use only 1 tablespoon of HE detergent (even less if 2x or 3x detergent) per load. If you use fabric softener, use only 1 teaspoon per load. Odor on clothes after wash is indicating that the detergent and or softener has not been fully rinsed out. If you throw a load of washed towels into your machine and start a cycle without any soap, then stop the cycle, you should not see any suds. If you do, there is obviously soap left in the clothes. With bath towels, the towels are used to absorb clean water off a clean body. They do not need soap when you wash them, and never use fabric softener on towels.
If your washer is a LG WM-1832 it has a assessable filter behind the access door on the lower left front of the machine. Clean that out first, and if it has a tub clean or sanitary cycle use that cycle (if not, use hottest longest cycle available) with 3 Affresh tablets or use whirlaway to clean out the washer outer tub (the not visible tub that holds the water). You might want to use another cycle like that with bleach to head off mold or mildew growth. Use of proper amount of detergent and fabric softener should really help the clothes odor issue from then on. Also check the tub seal at the bottom of the door area to clean out any lint from drain hole areas to help prevent water from remaining in the tub seal area.

Clothes/towels smell like mildew


Front load washers are so tight ( to seal in water ) that they tend to leave water in door gaskets and other places.. This water gets stagnant and can build up mildew etc..Home depot and other home goods stores sells a product called AFRESH and you use it about once a month ( with no clothes in washer).. It does help a bit..
Other techniques you can try would be to wipe down the gasket around the door opening after a wash is complete and to leave the door open between washes to let it air dry.. You should be using HE type laundry detergent and very little of it ( sveral drops is enough per load)..

hope that helps you...
