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.

Sometimes you have to get a cleaner for that kind of machine Tide makes one or you can just bleach. First drain all the water out of it. There will be a little door at the bottom on the front with a hose in it use a bucket and drain it. Then run it through a cycle with bleach or that Tide Cleaner. Bleach works better. I always leave the door open when I am not using the machine. Hope it works

Dark particles all over clothes once washed. I cleaned the washer, ran a tide washer cleaner through, checked and cleaned the screen filters that hot and cold hoses pump water through. Is there anything...


sounds like you may need to check your hot water heater for deterioration. since you have done all that you need to check your water supply. a water heater can deteriorate on the inside for a time before you will notice it. good luck

I have a front loader that smells like something died in it. I have tried affresh bleach Tide washer cleaner Basic G leaving the door open cleaning the gasket washing the drum cleaning the filter and hoses...


you can open the filter drainage under near the drain hose. there may be something that comes into the washer drum and died leaving a smell. how to open the filter is rotated and pulled out only. then you try to drain the washing machine how to turn it. will allow water or sewage, which is in the drum filter out of the hole. and do not forget to clean the exhaust filter the water, there will be a lot of dirt.

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.
