Kenmore elite odor

My refrigerator and freeze have an ordor. I have completely emptied and washed it, but the odor still exists. It is from inside the refrigerator as the ordor doesn't exist anywhere else.

If something spoiled in there, especially if it sat inside for awhile. you may be out of luck. The disagreeable odor may be permanently installed in the insualtion inside the mouldings. Replace it; otherwise..try washing inside thoroughly with soap and water or simple green. Then baking soda and water and leave doors open until completely dry. Then B-soda on a plate in the box.

Musty smell


The odor that you are experiencing may be from the growth of mold. Inside the washer, some small pools of water may be left standing and is harboring mold spores. Even though you may operate the washer regularly, the mold spores are not being washed away.I have a couple of tips that might help to eliminate odor issues in your washing machine. First, leave the lid, or door to the unit open. By leaving the door open, it promotes air circulation and evaporation of standing water. The reduction in odor, will occur quickly and dramatically. My second tip is to run the washer empty for a quick rinse cycle. Add an entire cup of bleach at the start of the cycle. The bleach is effective at destroying organisms, such as mold and bacteria. However, running it once will not be completely effective. I suggest pouring another cup of bleach into the wash tub, after the cycle has completed. This will leave bleach as the standing pool and should prevent the growth of mold or bacteria. However, if you do this, before doing a load of laundry you should run an empty rinse cycle again, to avoid damage to the clothes from the bleach left standing in the wash tub.

My Kenmore Elite smells like mold!


Run a cycle ,no clothes in, with about 3 cups/ 750 ml of bleach in it. How? put a fil a plisticbag with the bleach and set it in the washer. It will tip up when you start the cycle. You should end up with a clean washer and clean empty bag.

Chances are, the odor is from the washing machine.

Do the clothes smell when you take them out of the washer or after they have been in the dryer?

Tide makes a washing machine product that can help deodorize a washer, but using white vinegar with a hot wash cycle (empty) will also help. I think Home Depot or other home improvement stores may carry the Tide product. Maybe even your local grocer.

Also check the dryer for any odd odors. Sometimes scented dryer sheets put into the dryer with it empty can help deodorize it, or you can manually wipe the inside of the dryer with a product like Clorox Wipes. Check the dryer venting for any obstructions or restricted air flow just to be sure.

If the problem persists and it it still smells, it's possible (not too likely) you could have a pest issue, depending on your location and time of year.

Frig and freeze work fine!! But an ordor started and is staying!!


Most likely some raw meat juice leaked into a spot you can not see or get to. The defrost heater area and / or the defrost drain are the most likely suspects. If you can diss-assemble enough to get to these to clean, you stand a good chance of conquering your odor problem. Additionally, there is one odor absorber that has worked rather well for me, but I don't remember the exact name,.... but I'll post it in an additional comment tomorrow.

Smell coming from inside washing machine. Not musty.


This is a fairly common problem that often arises when the majority of washes are done with cold water.

Do what is called a maintenance wash where you set the machine to run with hot water and maximum fill of water. Add one half cup of baking soda and let it run through it's entire cycle with absolutely no clothes in it.

After it completes its full cycle check for that bad odor. If it is fully gone wonderful. If it is half as bad do a second maintenance wash.

If the maintenance wash doesnt seem to help at alll get back to me and I will make another recommendation.
