What could be the problem causing the rotten egg smell in the water? We have changed the anode rod.shocked the well.no sulfur. We have kinetico softener. Use iron out salt. Water heater 2 yrs old.


Some water softeners you can increase the back wash time on the unit to clear out a smell or bad taste , rotten egg smell can be sulfur. You may need a well flush but seek a well company on that for there advice as its not cheap .

Top load washer smells like rotten eggs when water is draining into tub


As someone who has had a deep well drilled and found water, but water contaminated with iron and sulfur, I can tell you first hand about the rotten egg smell. The water softener will remove the iron that can turn clothes orange, but doesn't do anything to remove the rotten egg odor. You will need a charcoal (carbon) water filter to eliminate the sulfur smell.

There is a smell like rotten eggs in the washer.


If you have used a non HE detergent in your washer this smell will occur often. Even using HE detergents over a period of 1 year since new they can get this odor. There are products on the market like Affresh: http://www.affresh.com/#/home or Tide washing machine cleaner: http://www.tide.com/en-US/product/tide-washing-machine-cleaner.jspx?ms=true (select info)

What you can do is use a full cup of bleach and 1/4 cup powdered Dawn dish washing soap in your washer with some non greasy rags. Dump it straight into the tub (not via the dispenser) and run a HOT wash. You can also add a squeeze of lemon at the same time or lemon concentrate. If it has been a long time since a machine cleaning cycle you may have to do this 2 times. It is recommended you perform a machine cleaning cycle at least every 90 days.

Any feedback via a response here of your success or failure to get rid of the bad smell would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Jacuzzi jets smell like rotten eggs when turned on.


Any time you get a strong smell of rotten eggs it is due to a high concentration of sulfer in the water. Are you on well water? I would suggest using a cleaner like http://www.sani-bath.com/ to clean out your system.

Rotten egg smell / sink


Two different problems. Rotten egg smell is sulfer from the water supply, especially strong in heated water. Drain may need to be cabled out.
