    The dark grey rubber area that you see when you first open the washer door is foul smelling. It looks as though mold has begun accumulating all around it. What can be done to clean it? The water seems to get stuck in there after each wash.

What makes the tub smells after final drain?


That depends, have you left cloths in it wet for an extended period of time? If so it could be bacteria selecting a large load and placing the temperature on hot and adding bleach to the water should fix this. If it smells like sewer gas this could be because there is the trap seal in the "P" trap has no water in it. This could happen if the trap is not vented properly. In other words a plumbing problem. try poring some water in to the trap slowly after the machine stopes if you can get to it.
Best of luck

Cadet 3 toilet smells like pee - NOT a SEWER smell, a urine smell. It's a brand new toilet, installed by our contractor. There's a brand new extra thick wax ring too. The room smells like urine when nobody...


If your contractor supplied the toilet, then it is his/her problem, not yours. If you supplied the toilet, then: take a mirror and examine under the lip of the bowl. How does the glazing look? Are there areas without glaze? If so, these bare areas are a breeding ground for bad odors. You can try a thorough cleaning both inside the bowl and around the outside of the toilet with an amonia cleaning product. If you use amonia, DO NOT use bleach: the two combined create a deadly gas. Whatever you do, do not hang a bleach based product inside the tank: the bleach will eat away at anything rubber inside the tank. There is a bleach product that hangs inside the tank and disperses the bleach directly into the tube that leads to the toilet bowl. This would be OK.

My Kenmore smells like sewer. What could be the problem?


The problem is mildew that is on the outer tub (the one that surrounds the metal tub that you can see). There has been much written and discussed about this. I have a Whirlpool that smells awful if we don't leave the lid up and a fan on it. Whirlpool makes a product that will abate the smell somewhat, but the smell comes back and the product isn't cheap.

I have had temporary success with bleach or Lysol (the good old fashioned disinfectant in a brown bottle) but you have to douse the tub from top to bottom. Be careful with allowing bleach to remain in a washing machine as it will corrode all metal parts inside the unit.

I wish I had an easy answer for you. Prior to this washer, I had a GE washer for over 30 years that never, ever smelled bad. I want it back.

Good luck from Detroit, MI.

Washer smells bad


Whirlpool and Tide make a cleaner that you put into the washer and run it through a cycle. Front loaders get a build-up that cannot be cleaned by hand. Make sure you are using a detergent that is marked "HE". Do not overfill the detergent or softener cups. I've heard that other used a lot of bleach in a wash cycle to clear out the smell. Bleach is bad to use if you're on a septic system, though.
