odor in washer
• Water supply taps are not
open fully.
• Water line hoses are kinked,
pinched, or bent.
• Water inlet filters are clogged.
• Water pressure to tap or
house is too low.
• Power cord is not properly
plugged in.
• House fuse is blown, circuit
breaker has tripped, or power
outage has occurred.
• The door is not closed
properly.
• Incorrect or too much
detergent has been used.

• Make sure that the water taps are open fully.
• Make sure the hoses are not kinked or pinched. Be
careful when moving the washer.
• Clean the inlet filters. See the Care and Cleaning
section.
• Check another faucet in the house to make sure that
household water pressure is adequate.
• Make sure that the plug is plugged securely into a
grounded, 3-prong, 120-VAC, 60-Hz. outlet.
• Reset circuit breaker or replace fuse. Do not increase
fuse capacity. If the problem is a circuit overload,
have it corrected by a qualified electrician.
• Make sure that the door is closed properly and press
the START/PAUSE button. After starting a cycle, it
may take a few moments before the drum begins to
turn or spin. The washer will not spin unless the door
is locked (DOOR LOCK will appear in the display).
• If the door is closed and locked and the open door
error message is displayed, call for service.
• Use only HE (High-Efficiency) detergent in accordance with the
manufacturer’s instructions.
• Run the TUB CLEAN cycle regularly. Be sure to wipe around and
under the door seal frequently.
• Clean around door seal/glass to prevent odor or mildew:
1. wipe dry the door seal/glass and the door opening area
2. wipe around the inner drum/door seal and the lower door seal

SOURCE: Samsung Washer makes the clothes smell like mold

This can happen with any front loading washer, regardless of the manufacturer.

One of the first things to do is make sure you're using the He (High efficiency) laundry detergent and only use a small amount, about 3 tablespoons or less. The trick is to not use so much detergent that you start getting a buildup in your machine. Also, if you have heavily soiled clothes, pre-treat them instead of adding more detergent to your wash cycle. This alone will result in better results.

Also, be certain the washer is properly leveled in all directions and to make some slight changes in your wash day schedule.

By making sure the washer is properly leveled, it will operate better and help minimize odors, as the spin cycle will get more water out, etc.

The other tip, that has really helped in our house, is to do all the hot water (whites) as the last load. Since we do use bleach when we wash our whites, along with hot water, the washer's last load will have had the best sanitizing cycle run through it before being left for the next load another day.

With the bleach and hot water, the washer gets a nice clean disinfecting wash which helps eliminate odors, germs, excessive soap, etc. and leaves the washer fresher. By doing this, we don't have to purchase other (more costs and expense) additives to run through the washer to attack the odor causing germs and gunk.

What good is a more energy efficient washer if I have to always run a special tablet/liquid cleaner in it each week without any laundry in that wash load? Seems wasteful to me to be doing an "extra" wash just to wash the washer. So I'm not a proponent of having to always use another product every week or month to have a washer work like it should.

However, if you've got an existing (smelly/moldy) washer presently, I would recommend that you use a produce called Whirl-Out, which will help dissolve the buildup that your machine currently has and get it clean again. Then you can follow the steps above to keep it from causing you issues in the future.

I hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

SOURCE: Samsung Front load washer has small leak coming

First check not a likely cause: Does your door stay centrally aligned when closed? If it doesn't center it could cause a leak. The glass bowl on the inside must be centered in the gasket. It will have to be adjusted or bent to center.
Second check: If it is a leak that happens when it is running then you will need to reset your gasket if there is a wrinkle in it or a new gasket. To check for a wrinkle put 1 layer of paper towels around the glass bowl insert, close the door and turn it on. Let it run for a bit then check the paper towel. You should be able to find the place leaking by the wet spot on the towel. If it only leaks a little when you open the door then you have a choice, keep a rag handy and mop it up (I'm talking about a couple of tablespoons at the most) or follow the instructions above. Even with a new gasket front loaders often leak a few drops that mop up nicely with the next load of clothes.
Warning: the gaskets don't just pop in they take some work. One side is attached to stationary cabinet and the other to the drum which moves a bunch. This will take a parts breakdown at a minimum. If you see any gasket sealant listed make sure and get some.

SOURCE: my samsung front loader has

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
Start with this ;-0)

Bad odours could be coming from a few places.

  1. the plumbing u-bend of the washer's room or
  2. the fact that there is 'foul' water being left in the drum.
  3. No washes at 90 degree+ !
I would suggest checking the plumbing u-bend for trouble first, then following the notes on checking and cleaning the drain filter and the drain pump to ensure there is nothing 'obnoxious' hanging around the two of them! Finally run the occasional 90+ wash, or use specialised lower temperature powder/fluid, to kill bacteria.
Here are my complete and general guidance notes for checking both the drain motor filter and the drain motor ;-0)
If you are unsure where the filter is, it is often behind the front lower (kick) panel (or in some machines at the rear in an awkward position!). These panels are either held on by (plasic) screws or will just pull off. Most filters are held in by a round cover/knob. Sometimes the filter will not come out with the cover and you will have to persuade it to come out to play.

REMOVE POWER AND ENSURE YOU HAVE A WATER RECEPTACLE/RAGS TO SOAK UP THE WATER WHICH IS BOUND TO POUR OUT (alternatively use a wet vac as sensibly suggested by VinnyB1234!)
It's surprising what people have found in theirs! It is always worthwhile checking it on a regular basis.
Now- whilst the filter is removed it is normally possible to see the drain motor and ensure it is not jammed by a foreign object such as a needle or a toothpick. It should be able to be turned by hand/finger- the power IS OFF!
At this point it is also possible to test if the motor works. No clothes or water in the machine, select a spin cycle and put the power back on. You should be able to see the motor turning at some point, possibly straight away. Using something suitable like a glove see if it is easy to briefly slow the motor down. If it is easy then the motor is malfunctioning.

If this has assisted you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.
Thanks and good luck,
John C

Stale odor within tub


Front loaders are known for building up mold and the smell.
It’s caused by using liquid detergent which is made from animal fat. Use powder. And use the minimum amount.
It’s caused by using fabric softener. Dilute it 50/50 with water.
It’s caused by the water remaining in the tub between washes. Leave the door open to allow it to dry. .
Pull the rubber door seal back and clean the mold off .
Affresh is recommended by some manufacturers. You run it through a wash cycle with it.

The washer emits a foul odor when washer first


You have the beginning of a detergent and/or softener residue buildup on the inside of the plastic outer drum of your clothes washing machine. Mold and bacteria need a moist, dark environment and a food source to grow. This residue is the food source. This can be a major health concern. See: http://www.cbsnews.com/video/watch/?id=5408971n

We can't change the environment of the washer but we can lessen the "food source" by reducing detergent and fabric softener use.
Do an internet search on "Smelly Washer Reviews" to see what you can do about the problem of mold odor in your washer, towels and clothing.
After your washer odor is gone you'll need to change washing habits so mold and bacteria don't return. Go to the blog page at smellywasher.com to read the featured posts on the left side of the page on the cause of the problem and what to do for extreme cases of washer mold odor.

Mold in rubber ring front loader Fridgidare washer


Common problem. Clean the moulding as best you can, even scour with steel wool. Leave the door open so the machine will be dry when not in use or/and wipe the rubber after each use. You can try to cover up the odour by wiping with a rag moistened with vanilla essence. Otherwise fit a new rubber and keep it dry in future.

Mold Mold Mold


You are speaking the truth there , the really sad part is all brand front load washers will have mold/mildew build up due to the rubber boot seals they all use , the only way of fixing this is soaking and scrubbing with bleach which is not a fun job to do.
until they can figure out how to get all the water out after use we will have to deal with mildew.
top load washers use gravity to drain most water out so they dont have this problem.

MY FRONT LOAD WASHER STINKS! THERE IS A MUSTY ODOR COMING FROM INSIDE.


Switch from liquid to powder detergent, no fabric softner (I know...I love it too), clean the gasket and run a cycle with bleach only. Leave the door open whenever possible. This fixed my smelly washer, now if it would only spin!

Terrible foul odor


run the machine as you were doing a regular load of clothes but do not put any clothes in it and use six cups of baking soda in place of any other soap.

This will clean your machine and get rid of the odor.

Smelly washer


The first thing to do is to CHECK IN AND AROUND THE RUBBER DOOR BOOT (called a bellow) for small articles of clothing (like socks and underwear) that may have gotten lodged in behind the rubber. Pull the rubber back where it meets the wash tub and look behind it. It is common for small items to get stuck here, become forgotten and start to mildew. You should check this area after each wash and clean it periodically to get rid of the formation of soap scum, mold, and mildew. HINT: When you get ready to wash a load of towels, take a dirty towel and clean the door boot thoroughly (including the areas behind the rubber). Immediately place the towel in the wash and run it on a sanitary cycle. This way you eliminate the need for cleaning rags.

PERIODICALLY RUN THE WASHER ON A CLEANING CYCLE. Place the washer on the hottest setting you have (usually a Sanitary cycle) 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.

NOTE: This problem is common with front loader style washing machines. The doors on these machines have an air tight/water tight seal that is great for sealing the washer during the wash cycle, but can be terrible for collecting small garments and for not allowing the tub to properly air out when not in use. Following these simple preventive measures can go a long way towards preventing harmful mold and mildew, and towards extending the life of the door bellow and pump.
