Question about Kenmore 44042 Front Load Washer
My washing machine contains a sour water smell in the drum. I've checked the drain line and its correct. And I've even ran bleach through the gentle cycle without any clothes in it. The smell is getting into our clother and it is just awful. Please help!
I had this problem with mine a few years back and a repair man told me to leave the lid to the washer open after each wash to allow it to dry in between washes - never had the problem again! KG

DO NOT mix Clorox and vinegar together. You will end up with a cloud of toxic chlorine gas. Running Clorox, rinsing, then running vinegar might help, but definitely not at the same time. That will make for a very bad day !

My friend told me of someone who researched this problem, and it is because we are using liquid detergent. Switch to a granular high efficiency detergent. Before you start using it, you must run through a mixture of about one cup Clorox and two cups vinegar through the washer, using the Sanitary setting. I am actually on-line now trying to research the exact proportions of Clorox and vinegar when I ran across your problem.
