The tub is probably pretty dirty. Try cleaning the washer with CLR.

We purchased a kenmore high efficiency washing machine. after the second load, we get a sewer smell in the other part of the house.do you have any suggestions?


There may be a venting problem with the sewer lines. These machines expel water very fast and at higher pressures than other types of machines. This can cause suctioning of water from drain traps if there is improper or clogged venting of the sewer lines. Have the sewer lines checked by someone knowledgeable about proper venting practices.

Sewer smell drain


are there any floor drains in the room and an unused bathtub or shower? if so the water may have evaporated from the trap and allow the sewer gas smell. try pouring water into all the drains and see if it is still happening. more elaborate problem may be a broken vent stack in a wall.

Odor coming from washing machine - smells like sewer gas


The odor coming from your washing could indicate a problem with your
hot water heater or possibly your city's cold water supply line.
In some cases the odor might be originating from the drain located adjacent to
the washing machine. During long periods of inactivity, if no water is flushed
down the drain, a sewer smell will be emitted from the drain. To alleviate
this condition, just flush water down the drain.
I hope this helps you solve your problem.

I have just remodeled a old condo with new toilets and I am getting a strong gas smell. How can I get rid of it. I am in Thailand and the building is 22 years old.


jajoy,

Did you connect the sanitary pipe stack to the sewer line that takes away the flushed effluent? Check to see that the pipe is connected, not leaking sewer gas, not plugged up with an animal carcass, and that the pipe extends through your roof three feet past the roof line (keeps smell out of house).

When machine pumps out the smell comes through the sink


All plumbing drains whether under a sink or the stand pipe drain, for a washer, are required by LAW to have a trap to prevent the sewer gases from entering a home.

Sewer gases are dangerous in many ways, not the least of which is the terrible smell. Sewer gas can build up and if allowed to accumulate near an appliance that operates on gas (LP or natural) can combust and cause a fire and/or an explosion.

Yes, if you can do the installation youself, do it ASAP, or contact a licensed plumber and have installed a proper drain trap for the sink and also make sure the drain that the washer is draining into, also has a trap in it.

This will have a profound impact on the smell and will help alleviate foul odors from your sewer lines.

Hope you found this Very Helpful and best regards!

SMELLY WASHING MACHINE


A mouldy smell is often a sign of trapped residual water stagnating somewhere in the machine often just inside the door seal at the low point or in the filter.

Providing there is nothing like a old sock trapped in the pump or filter then there is not much you can do other than to dry the door seal and powder dispenser after use.
