SOURCE: Mold & Smelly in Washer
Shepherd, Finkelman, Miller & Shah, LLC, is currently investigating defects and other problems in certain front-loading washing machines manufactured and/or sold by Whirlpool, Kenmore, and LG Electronics, including Kenmore Elite HE3 front load washers, Whirlpool Duet front load washers and LG Tromm, LG XL and other LG model front load washers, which result in the growth of mold/mildew in the machines and which can cause the staining of clothes and other problems.
On August 29, 2007, SFMS filed a Complaint against Sears Holding Corp. involving its Kenmore HE, HE2, HE3, HE4, HE5 and other front-loading automatic washers. If you own a front-loading washing machine that is manufactured by any of the above-mentioned companies and are experiencing the growth of mold/mildew in the machine, visit the following website: www.frontloadwasherclassaction.com

SOURCE: Mold smell
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.

Because we are not told by the manufacturers that these machines have hidden drain plugs that need to be cleaned out when you starting getting the odor in order to stop the slow draining from burning up the pump.The drain should be behind an access panel that is held in place by several screws. Hope this helps

Hello friend, thanks for your post!
I understand that you have a mold smell developing inside of your Frigidaire washer. I would normally recommend using a clean wash cycle with either one cup of bleach or one pouch of Tide Washing Machine Cleaner. If you do not have a clean wash cycle on your washer you could also use hot water and a regular cycle with a cup of bleach to clean out your washer.
You should also check over your gasket to assure there is no mold buildup, if you do locate mold inside of your gasket you can use bleach to help get rid of any residue. I hope this information is helpful. -Matt
