There could be buildup in the outer tub causing some water to stay trapped and causing the smell, try running some loads uning Ahfresh or you can try pouring lots of bleach in there and letting it sit a while, then run it throu a cycle.

My LG front loading washer smells like wet clothes that have been in the washer for months? Musty smell?washer overnight? Strong smell of musty old clothes


This is caused by the biomass built up inside the tub of the machine. This can also be caused by a moldy door boot. You need to scrub your door boot between the tub and the door. Water settles in the bottom of it and molds. Once you clean this, order affresh washer cleaner for your machine. This kills all the biomass built up in the tub and removes the smell. You will put all three tablets in the drum and run on the longest hottest wash available. When this is completed your machine should smell much better. To keep this from getting so bad again... Keep the washer door cracked open between cycles. This keeps the inside from smelling. Hope this helps

Drum smells


Open the door and run your hand deep inside the door seal. It probally has a slime around it. You can clean this with a bleach water mix. You might need to pull the seal somewhat inside out to get it real clean. Then run an empty load to flush it all out. Here is a link for replacing the seal or spring clips if you pull one off. http://appliancehelponline.com/washerdoorseal.html

Maytag front load washer - smell musty


the water in the unit is normal, to kill the smell when you are done doing wash for the day dampen a rag with bleach and whip down the door gasket. You can buy a cleaner called "afresh" it works as well. If your unit is a neptune check with maytag it might have a recall on the door gasket for growing mould

I noticed that my clothes are not smelling fresh, especially my towels. The washer has a musty smell even after running it with bleach. When I shake the washer when it is empty I can hear water. Is this...


if it is a Maytag neptune YES that sound is normal. especially when you rotate the drum by hand that is your balance ring you are hearing. Do you only use liquid detergent? if yes this might be your problem. it leaves a film around the drum. i would run 3 wash cycles with bleach and hot water. and then at least once a month with hot water and bleach to keep it fresh and also leave the door open so that it can air dry oder causeing bacteria love moisture.

Smell


One downfall of the front load machine that it holds moisture causing musty smell in drum. Try leaving door agar between washes and use a cleaner specific for front load smells 1 every month.

Kenmore Series 70 has musty smell and sounds like water inside


The water will always be in there. It is in between the basket and the drum. That is normal. However if you want to get rid of the musty smell there is a good tip that I have. You can find this on my profile too. Just take about a cup of white vinegar and put it in the drum and wash on hot heavy load. This will clean the tub and all hoses as well. You can do this every few months or even every month if you do a lot of laundry. Put some vinegar into the bleach dispenser too and the fabric softener area as well. This way you will clean everything. It is much cheaper then going out and buying that expensive cleaner made for washing machines. Let me know if you have any other questions and if this was helpful. Good luck and have a great weekend.
