Run the machine as you were doing a regular load of clothes but do not put any clothes in it and use six cups of baking soda in place of any other soap.

This will clean your machine and get rid of the odor.

Odor inside the machine


Hi,

Odor in the machine or clothes is a common problem with front loading machines that use a small amount of water. Fortunately there is a solution. There is a couple of cleaning products out there that work great to help this.

- Affresh
- Smelly Washer

They can be found where you buy detergent. I have found the Affresh to work the best but have heard great things about Smelly Washer too.

Here is a link to a page I put out that tells a bit more. Let me know if this was helpful to you.

Thanks

The washer emits a foul odor when washer first


You have the beginning of a detergent and/or softener residue buildup on the inside of the plastic outer drum of your clothes washing machine. Mold and bacteria need a moist, dark environment and a food source to grow. This residue is the food source. This can be a major health concern. See: http://www.cbsnews.com/video/watch/?id=5408971n

We can't change the environment of the washer but we can lessen the "food source" by reducing detergent and fabric softener use.
Do an internet search on "Smelly Washer Reviews" to see what you can do about the problem of mold odor in your washer, towels and clothing.
After your washer odor is gone you'll need to change washing habits so mold and bacteria don't return. Go to the blog page at smellywasher.com to read the featured posts on the left side of the page on the cause of the problem and what to do for extreme cases of washer mold odor.

Foul rotting vegetable type odor in top of Kenmore refrigerator


If the icemaker motor or heater short out it will cause a foul odor. I have never heard it described as cooked broccoli, but it can be pretty bad. Remove the icemaker and inspect the bottom of it where the heater element is and remove the white cover of the motor and look in there. You can take the three screws out of the motor module and see if anything is burned on it.
If you can rule out the icemaker, the next things to check would be the evaporator fan motor and defrost heater. Generally, if a fan motor starts causing an odor it will stop running completely and if a defrost heater goes out it will quit defrosting. It is possible, but unlikely, that something has gotten into the evaporator area and is sitting on the defrost heater so that it is "cooking" during the defrost cycle.
Check the icemaker first, it is the most likely cause of the odor. Post back with complete model number if you need further assistance and we will go through checking everything else.
