You are able to clean your washer easier and better than any appliance repair technician can by soaking it with a good washing machine cleaner. Bleach or vinegar will kill the mold but leaves a base for more detergent and softener to collect on and more mold and bacteria will grow. I've been selling the only all natural washing machine cleaner available at since 2006. It has 24 treatments rather than 1-3 for competitors. Do a search for "smelly washer reviews" to read how well it works.

Yes . You must first remove the body of cabinet. Remove Phillips screws on bottom left and right side of console.(Newer ones are located in back of console) Console will now flip up. Unplug lid switch wire harness remove clips on each side of cabinet. Using a flat head scredriver Hook in front part of clip and push up towards console.After clips are re moved tilt cabinet toward you and walk back with cabinet. Next remove (white Plastic shroud around outer tub. They just pull up with fla-thead screwdriver.Remove agitator by removing cap . there is usually a small **** you pry up at. If you have fabric softener dispenser on top remove it first. You will either have a 7/16th bolt or plastic female hole. If it is the latter use a half inch drive with extension to remove.After removing these just pull up agitator. by lifting from bottom.Next you will have to remove.spanner nut from drive block.Spanner wrench works best if not available you can use large flat-head screwdriver. To remove nut go counter clockwise.

Terrible smell from the washer. This is a new

do not use baking soda this will react with your detergent and leave smelly deposits and reduce the wash performance modern good quality detergents contain everything needed for a good wash result and a sweet smelling machine. try a hot wash with detergent and an empty load to get rid of smell.

Terrible foul odor

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.

Front load washer smells!

Did you check for small wet items just inside the door? Push in on the soft gray rubber area right down in front and made certain you don't have something soured down in that area.
