Trinity Bendix 1000- inside smells of drains

Trinity Bendix 1000.
4 years old approx.

Working normally but in the last week smells of drains which is making the washing smell. It is the smell you get when something is wet and left for a few days. Have cleaned filter and drawers -all ok and apart from the horrible smell inside the drum of the machine. There is no problem with rinsing or spinning either.

Check the drum's rubber lining as dirt and grime gets caught between the rubber and begins to smell. I had the same problem and after throughly clearing all the debris that had built up between the rubber my machine stopped smelling.

What do the red light with abell shape which is lit up mean on my 18 year old tricity bendix freezer mean

It's a temperature warning that the freezer is no longer at the correct temperature. Check all is clean and working, door seal intact etc. If short of gas, probably time to get a new one!!! Bet it won't last 18 years this time though!

I wash the DW with finish DW cleaner.All items smell rotten eggs

Try running a wash with a couple of caps of baby sterilising fluid. If the d/w is connected directly to the sink, remove the spigot and check there aren't any blockages. I run a dishwasher cleaner thru my d/w every 3 months and every couple of week I will load the machine for a wash, add tab to dispenser and just after starting a 65 degree wash, I will open the door and tip in approx one capful of sterilising fluid.
Good luck
baby fluid also good as a sluice wash for your washing machine on 90 degrees (w/m empty, approx every 4 weeks).

Hello, guys. I have a BMW that has been parked in the garage for five years. Before that, everythings was working good, but when I tried to start it last week, I didn't suceed. What do you think may be...

Injectors can be stuck with old fuel so they don't operate. Gas evaporates from tip leaving gummy deposits that make the injectors stick. You might have to take them out. They might make a ticking noise if they are working, but this is pretty hard to hear over the background noise.
See if there is a smell of gas in the exhaust.
Check ignition to see if you are getting spark. Be careful doing this!
You may have water in the gas just from it sitting around. Drain tank and put in new gas (right). Failing that, add dry gas (alcohol) and add new gas.
Disconnect a fuel line and see if what comes out smells like gas.

ngfam1 here for you!
I am happy to be of assistance!

Her we go again!
Every week run your washer once with no clothes inside, and on hot water with a 1/4 cup of bleach! This will kill the mold and get rid of the smell.Just remember to make your next load WHITE CLOTHES , so if there is a drop of bleach still in it some where, that it does not put a white spot on your favorite clothing.
Hospitals use a mixture of 1/3 bleach to 2/3 water to disinfect! kills all even in your shower or bathe tube and leaves the groat white!!!

Help me to wash!!


    this sounds like a syphoning problem this means the outlet /drain pipe at the back of the machine has been pushed to far into the drain upstand pipe causing the water to syphon straight through the machine make sure that the drain pipe is only part way down the drain pipe, hope this works for you
