Rotting Smell from Whirlpool Duet Front Loading Washer

I have a front loading Duet model GHW9100LW1 Whirlpool Washer. Sludge collects around the metal barrel and also inside the rubber gasket. Hence, the machine stinks like sulfur when it is run. How do we solve the problem?

    I also have the stinky sludge problem. I have tried to scrub the inside gasket with bleach, vinegar, run on a hot cycle after, nothing helps.
    Thinking of replacing the seal. How do you do that?
    Also need to swap the side the door opens--I have the kit but no instructions. Thanks

Take the panel off of the front of your washer below the door and in the middle there is a round removable plastic door like piece. Take it out and clean out all of the junk in behind it. You might find loose change, nails and a variety of other thnigs that have become stuck in there besides mold. This will help with the smell and also the water that sometimes remains in your washer after the cycle is over. You need to do this once/twice year.

This is very typical on Front Loading washer machines- also, make sure you are using Front Loading detergent, if you fail to do this your water draining Motor will go bad. Good Luck.

This may or may not be helpful but please see the following Whirlpool installation and service manual for the Duet Sport washer.

It has a number of sections on accessing components and you may be able to determine how to take the front off.

My towels always smell sour...it doesn't matter what detergent or fabric softener I use. I have the Whirlpool Duet front loading machine and dryer.


The filter on your pump is probably clogged with lint and stuff. You have to remove the bottom front panel, 3 torx screws underneath. The panel will drop and come off. Drain off the excess water from the drain pipe you see. The white filter cover is right in front. Get yourself a good plastic bag to collect water. Unscrew the filter cover and twist the filter out. Clean out all the stuff and put it back in carefully. Check your pump too.

On some models the filter is located ‘inside’ the big hose from the bottom of the tub. This takes more time to clean.

Next run your washer with 2 cups of bleach, hot water. After it starts agitating stop the washer & let it remain for 2 hours. Then continue the wash.
