Question about Washing Machines
I have a Frigidaire front loader HE washer. It has started to stink and now have learned that HE detergent is food for mold. Used Afresh tablets as directed (sodium carbonate and sodium purcarbonate) 3 serial treatments but the stink remains.
As far as I can tell there is no trap door to access the filter so that it can be cleaned - so my question is:
How do i get at the filter to clean it?
Front load washers have a front panel that is general held on with 3 screws at the bottom that you can not see. There should be one on each corner and one in the middle once you remove these screws the panel drops down and you will find a white plastic cap that has a hose running to it and from it. If you twist that open with a bucket or something to catch the water that has been left in the machine, you will find that it is a filter that pulls out and it is usually full of stuff. Clean that out and replace and see if it will fill and drain, if not the pump is not working and needs to be replaced.
