SOURCE: Drain Hole for Frigidaire Window Air Conditioner

Leave it alone. DO NOT attempt to create a drain. As long as a window A/C unit is installed properly, (angled slightly down toward the rear) it will drain excess water over the rear lower lip of the unit should it get that high. Many models use some of the collected water/condensation. It gets lifted up by the fan blades to cool the coil.

Kenmore 2600 TOP LOADER smells like Mildew. I can hear water sloshing around under drum. Is that Normal?


The drain on all washers have this issue. Unless the drain hose runs down hill, when the pump stops, water runs back into the machine that was in the hose but was not drained.

Tip

Getting Rid of Front Loader Mildew and Odor


This advice is for that awful mildew smell associated with front loader style washing machines.
Place the washer on the hottest setting you have with nothing but bleach in the wash tub. Some newer models actually have a “Clean Cycle” available now just for this purpose. This helps keep the wash tub, drain lines and pump sanitized.

CHECK AND CLEAN THE DRAIN PUMP FILTER. Accumulations of debris in the drain pump filter can also cause odors. HINT: If you own a shop vac, pull the drain hose from the standpipe at the wall and pull a vacuum on the line. This will drain any residual water left in the tub, pump and drain lines BEFORE you remove the drain pump cover. This will prevent a messy clean up later.

LEAVE THE DOOR OPEN IF POSSIBLE. When not in use, leave the door open to allow the tub to air out and to keep mold and mildew from forming on the door bellow. I know this may not be desirable in some households with small children. If too much mildew forms on the rubber and it cannot be removed, replacement of the bellow may be required.

USE HE DETERGENT ONLY. Using regular detergent, or improper amounts of detergent can contribute to the build up of soap scum in which dirt can collect. Regular detergent is formulated to be used in a conventional wash tub with capacity of about 35 gallons. A high efficiency front loader only uses 5 to 7 gallons of water. So, if you use regular detergent in a front loader, you are, in affect, using about 5 times the concentration of detergent needed. This can cause oversudsing, premature wear on the pump motor and parts, premature wear on rubber seals, odor from sticky soap residue and skin irritations caused by soap residue left in clothing. Using improper detergent will also void the manufacturer's warranty. Make sure you READ all detergent labels some HE detergent is double (2X) and triple (3X) concentrated.

Mildew smell in car from AC


Sounds like the evaporator coil, or a hose to it is leaking inside the car. Do you see water on the ground with the car sitting and the air on? Maybe the drain is clogged? Mold build up has clogged drain?

I have a walk-in jacuzzi-type bathroom tub. When the automatic blower comes on it sends out a mildew smell. How can I get rid of it?


First of all, after each use, refill the tub with warm water and run the jets for about 10 minutes to clear out any excess debris etc.

To eliminate the smell/mildew/mold. :
-Fill the tub to above the jet level with HOT (over 140deg.) water
-Add two tablespoons of low sudsing dishwasher detergent and five cups of distilled white vinegar
-Run the jets for 20 minutes
-Drain the tub and use a tooth brush or any small brush to gently clean inside and around all of the jets and nozzles, remove all foreign material you can from the areas inside (disassemble the outter rings to do so) and around the outlets. Be as thorough as possible.
-Rinse and refill the tub with CLEAN COLD water and run the jets for another 20 minutes.
-Drain the water and the smell and mildew should be eliminated.

To prevent future mildew build up/odors once a month fill the tub with HOT water (again) and four to five cups of vinegar (no detergent) and run the jets for 20 minutes. Drain and fill with clean cold water running jets another 20 minutes. If the tub is used very often you can increase the scheduled flushing of the system to every two to three weeks. The mildew/mold flourishes in the warm wet areas inside the jet tubing and nozzles. Diligent maitenance is the best way to make sure you're not bathing with any unwanted guests in your bathwater!

-Take care

After doing a wash the washing does not smell very good - almost as if it has been washed in stagnant water?


your door boot just inside the door has mold build-up on it,open the door and pull the crease apart carefully so as not to tear it, on the door boot and you will see black spots in the lower area of this boot,this is mildew,also clean out the door drain hose that drain here as this gets plugged with lint,etc.,and will not allow water to drain fully,when its cleaned out with bleach it will drain and the odor should disappear

My Washing machine is retaining water in the bottom or back of the washer which is visible sometimes. It has mildewed and SMELLS! I have run the washer through the spin cycle several times and this empties...


Sounds like your drain hose is pluged with something. Try and check for small idem into drain on bottom of washer ( chain, braclet etc ) or soap buildup. Once you have determined wheather or not there is a plug to be removed, you can run cider vinegar through your wash cycle which will help reduce the mold. Plus it helps with soap clog buildups. Powered soaps tend to build up faster then liquid soaps do.

Water Cooler - Water has mildew taste


I just put about six cups of white vinegar (not diluted) into the reservoir and let it sit for about an hour. Then I emptied that out and flushed a few pitchers of very hot water through. It seems to have worked quite well.

Drain problem


If there's water in the drain line this is normal. There is roughly about a half a gallon of residual water that remains under the wash basket, drain line and drain pump combined. That's why it is important to leave the washer door open when not in use to allow the tub to air out. It will not evaporate the water, but will help reduce the build up of mold, mildew, and odors.

Now, if you look inside the wash tub and see standing water, then you may have some drain line issues. Make sure your drain line does not exceed 10 feet in length. Excessive lengths can cause backwash. Also, make sure the standpipe at the wall is at least two inches in diameter, a minimum of 34 inches from the floor and does not exceed a height of 72 inches. All these conditions can cause slow drain problems and/or backwash.

I hope this answers your question and that you find this helpful. Please post back if you need further assistance.

PS Make sure the standpipe is draining properly. It should be capable of draining approximately 17 gallons per minute.

Admiral Washer smells like mildew


yes it could . If you are trying to pump the water 7 feet or more above the floor then it will at the end of the cycle get air into the drain hose causing cavatation, the result when the machines stops is the water running back down the drain hose back into the tub and that is what causes the musty smell.
Lower the drain if possible
