Inside of Washer Smells

The inside of my washing machine smells. It feels warm when you open the door and the drum has an awful smell! I've cleaned out the door seal to make sure there is no mould, and I can't see anything stuck inside the drum. Could something be stuck in the filter?

Often in washing machines there is a drain trap which needs cleaning out from time to time, (usually accessible from the front behind a removable facia) The manual should tell you how to clean this. you need to drain the water first (as there is often a little water still in the system). if you look on the program dial there is often an item that has an arrow pointing down, this should be the drain program, after this is done you can remove the draining cover and clean the workings inside, hopefullt this will solve your problem :)

My LG front loading washer smells like wet clothes that have been in the washer for months? Musty smell?washer overnight? Strong smell of musty old clothes


This is caused by the biomass built up inside the tub of the machine. This can also be caused by a moldy door boot. You need to scrub your door boot between the tub and the door. Water settles in the bottom of it and molds. Once you clean this, order affresh washer cleaner for your machine. This kills all the biomass built up in the tub and removes the smell. You will put all three tablets in the drum and run on the longest hottest wash available. When this is completed your machine should smell much better. To keep this from getting so bad again... Keep the washer door cracked open between cycles. This keeps the inside from smelling. Hope this helps

Drum smells


Open the door and run your hand deep inside the door seal. It probally has a slime around it. You can clean this with a bleach water mix. You might need to pull the seal somewhat inside out to get it real clean. Then run an empty load to flush it all out. Here is a link for replacing the seal or spring clips if you pull one off. http://appliancehelponline.com/washerdoorseal.html

Inside of washer smells bad!!


Your smell is inside the washer under the cabinet. You must take the cabinet apart and thoroughly clean it. You must have a small leak that has been going on for sometime now for the moister has mildewed. Lysol will kill the smell on this although it must be cleaned first of all

Awful smell! I drain it every cycle, I use the washer cleaner, everything! I am so sick of my towels smelling awful.


Sounds like the little flexible apron just in front of your washer drum has mildewed. Take a look and see if it is holding water, and look for mold while your'e at it. Use a good bathroom mold and mildew remover to kill the mess and deodorize it.

The rubber round my washing machine door is black and smells


common problem with that style machine. Try running a cup of vinegar thru te wash cycle. The acid from the vinegar will break it down. It may take more than one cycle if its really bad. Once the smell is gone leave the door slightly ajar to prevent it from happenig again.

Clothes have a musty smell if left in the washer


Make shure to do a cleaning cycle. As well, wipe out the inside, the rubber gasket and the door when done washing for the day. We also have found that
leaving the door "Open" for several hours, when finnished, eliminates any future
smells.

Musty smell, but can't tell from where


I have the same problem with a 3 month old ge front loading washer.after 1 month it started off smelling musty..I thought it was my imagination, now at 3 months old our clothes smell so bad I think we might just have to buy new clothes! everytime I wash a load the clothes smell worse and now you can even smell it just walking into our closet 2 floors up. A new washing washing machine should NOT be doing this! so far leaving the door open in between washes has helped a little but I plan on tipping it back and finding the hidden filter today. Isn't it lovely that they don't mention a filter that needs monthly cleaning or it's location in the manuals?!
