Question about Whirlpool Ultimate Care II LSQ9549L Top Load Washer

Smelly odour next couple days while filling next load

There is a foul smelling odour, like sewer, when I use washer
again in a few days. as water level gets higher smell seems to
increase. IT is not water as nowhere else in house do I have smelly
water.
I suspect water sits outside of all those drain holes and smells
after a few days, then when you fill again, it all mixes with fresh water.
After washing, clothes are properly dryed as normal, no sitting water
visibly. Smel is getting to me, stinks up the house big time.
HELP

Have u tied running a high concentration (large load water level setting 4 cups of bleach) of household bleach throught the washer? if u have any kind of bacteria problem this will kill them, some water always remains in the washer, but normally doesn't cause this problem, the bleach will disinfect the washer tub, should do the trick, from then on do it once a month..

I have a foul smell coming from my washer everytime I use it...It almost smells like sewer gas...HELP!!!


you probably just need to clean the bellow. Thats the rubber that goes around the tub and door. f not cleaned, it will get moldy and smelly. Theres a tablet that you can buy called affresh. just put the machine on a regular cycle if it doesn't have a clean or sanitize cycle, and put the tablet in. Let the machine complete the cycle. (without clothes). You can even try wiping the bellow out with vinegar. after each wash i suggest you wipe the machine out, drying the bellow and glass. Leave it open for about half an hour, to let it air out.

SMELLY FRONT LOAD WASHER


MAKE SURE YOUR WATER IS HOT WHEN STARTING THE FILL CYCLE YOU MAY HAVE TO FILL IT UP ONCE THEN DRAIN IT THEN FILL IT UP AGAIN TO MAKE SURE ITS HOT THEN ADD 1 CUP OF AUTOMATIC DISHWASHER SOAP AND RUN AN EMPTY CYCLE. THIS WILL REMOVE ALL ENZIMES AND SMELLS FROM WASHER

Washer smells even after cleaning cycle


Hi,

It sounds like an air vent is either missing or clogged. That gurgling usually indicates some sy phoning action going on which is drawing water out of a gas trap. Hence you are getting sewer smell into the washer.


Thank you !!

Frigidaire front load washer SMELLS!!!!


your inner tub needs to be removed and the outer tub including the outside of the inner tub needs to be cleaned of all the sludgy soap, fabric softener,etc. that has built up in between the tubs,along with the drain tube at the bottom,you might try bleach as a stop gap,but sooner or later you are going to have to clean this out the hard way,its not fun

My Duet Washer has an extreme mold smell. I have


The mouldy smell.......what else?

try adding 2 or 2 cups of Sugar Soap Concentrate then fill the machine and leave it for 24 hrs.
Then put it through a wash cycle without any clothes.

If this fails to fix the problem you are looking at a complete strip down and clean out!

Smell while washing only


Like bad eggs ?

Do you have a U bend in the wastepipe that takes the water away from your machine

If not then any smells from the pipe run can come back up the outlet pipe

Once you have ran the machine it flushes away the old water and the smell goes away

Kenmore front load HE washer odor


How old is your machine? Mine is 5 years old, and I just started to get a "sewage" smell in my laundry room this weekend. I disconnected the water return to the sewer line and discovered lots of gunk in the hose, and the connector to the machine was completely dark green. I'm going to replace the hose, and trying to figure out if there is some sort of filter.

We only use He detergents too, so I guess this is something that just happens over time.

I had similar problem, the front door seal can trap small items,socks,handtowels. I didnt figure this out for some months, each load of clothes had a foul, mildew smell, Check door seal for trapped clothes, run intermittent cycles with bleach only, no clothes, be sure to leave door open when not in use to air out , this will reduce smell.

Odor when starting cycle


Check your water softener(If so equipped). This can cause foul odors in the water supply if not properly balanced or maintained. Good luck!
