Until you can find the filter (I'll investiate!) I suggest running it on hot hottest wash you can (empty) with just bleach. That at least should kill the bacteria that are causing the smell

Sour smell in dryer


Hello JoAnn Barrett - It is very rare for a dryer to produce a sour odor. I would suggest cleaning out the lint trap or try removing the panel to confirm that doesn't anything trap there that can cause this odor. Otherwise, I would strongly recommend contacting a professional to move forward accurately with the concern.

I have a Whirlpool Duet front loading washer with a smelly trap.


It is normal to have water in the drain lines and drain trap even when the unit is not in use. There's usually about a gallon of residual water in the lower portion of the wash tub, drain line and pump. If you are experiencing sour odors from the washer, the following link can give you some pointers on things to try to help keep the smell from coming back:

Read through the link provided and let me know if you still have problems. I personally own a front loader and have followed this regiment for 9 years now with no odor or mildew problems. I hope this helps you as well.

Whirlpool now has cleaning tablets to take the smell out washers. They say they are for HE front load machine but it works on all machines. They are called affresh washer tablets. Just buy some and put all three tablets in the tub with hot water and let the washer go through a cycle with just the tablet(no clothes). By putting all three in the washer at one time it will kill the smell. For later use the package is a three month supply. They cost under 10 dollars.

Water constantly in pin trap


I had this problem and found out there was something stuck in the drain hose.  It also made my clothes smell sour.  Unhook your drain hose stretch it out straight, run water through and maybe snake it if need be.
