It is not the washer that is causing the prob, more likely to be coming from waste pipe, and or sink if the pipe is connected to the sink waste pipe.
Check and clean filter in washer if it has one, and remove waste pipe from washer and check outlet is not partially clogged up with sediment and other substances.
If pipe goes into sink waste, then pour a sink pipe cleaning fluid of some description down sink waste.
Also make sure you are not doing too many low temp wshes, as this can cause a prob as well
Do a boil wash at least once a month without clothes in but with powder in.
This is called a maintenance wash, and helps keep the inside of washer clean, and free from smells.

Smell coming from washing machine like stagnant water-hotpoint wma 44....seems to be coming up through the drain in sink


Hi from retired Englishman in France,

If the smell is coming from the drain in the sink, it is more likely that THERE is the problem rather than the washing machine. Washing machines deal only with 'dirty' clothes whereas sinks have all sorts of things going down them! You could have a partially blocked u-tube (not to be confused with YouTube!) in the sink because normal (changing/flowing) water in the u-tube should block smells coming from the main/foul water drainage system.
I would definitely investigate the sink! If it is not practical to remove the u-tube, use a propriatory sink cleaner ensuring that it is the right one for the job- OK for plastics or OK for metal (not chrome).

Good luck,

John C

Run the machine with no clothes, only detergent along with washing soda or baking soda, using hot water. Once or twice with this should do it.

Bad smell coming from washing machine


It probably is related to your drain outlet, depending on the set-up, I would suggest you remove drain hose and clean the place where the drain hose enters the drain system, if possible, clean all associated pipework
