Question about Frigidaire GLTF2940E Gallery 3.5 Cu. Ft. King Size Front Loading Washer
The drain plug needs to be cleaned before it burns up your pump. There should be an access panel at the bottom that you have to remove the screws from and drop the panel down and then you should find a cap that you twist and pull that is the filter. Make sure you have something underneath it to catch the water or you will have a mess.Good Luck

SOURCE: Musty smell in washer
We had the same smell. It was so bad you could smell it when you came into the house. We switched to powdered detergent and the smell went away. If you put your nose down by the rubber seal you can smell it a little, but I consider the problem fixed!

SOURCE: musty smell in washing machine
I tried all of the suggestions and nothing worked, So I took apart my machine to find the source of the problem. There was a ring of black mildew that was the source of the smell I clean it and that took care of the problem!!!

This is a fairly common problem that often arises when the majority of washes are done with cold water.
Do what is called a maintenance wash where you set the machine to run with hot water and maximum fill of water. Add one half cup of baking soda and let it run through it's entire cycle with absolutely no clothes in it.
After it completes its full cycle check for that bad odor. If it is fully gone wonderful. If it is half as bad do a second maintenance wash.
If the maintenance wash doesnt seem to help at alll get back to me and I will make another recommendation.

SOURCE: 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
