Hello Friend, Your problem is simple to resolve. This is a common issue. It is possible that the water quality being delivered to the washer could contain higher than normal amounts of micro-organisms causing the growth of mold and mildew. Basically what is happening with your washer, when not in use the washer door remains closed trapping in moisture which is the perfect invironment for mold and mildew to grow. You should run a large empty load with bleach and from now on just leave the washer door partially open when not in use. This should resolve your problem. Happy to help, Tim.

Kenmore washer mold smell issue


front loader of top loader? For front loaders you need to dry around the front gasket and leave the door open 24 hours after each wash.

Put a couple of towels in the machine and add a full box of Arm and Hammer Baking Soda and do a 90' boil wash. Clean towels and the smell gone.

Wet clothes after spin cycle and bad mildew smell. I have seen many complaints about mildew smell with He3 & He4 well really frnt loaders in general. The bad mold is so gross and the smell is horrible.


Clean tub boot the best you can with bleach. Then run an empty load with sunlight automatic dish soap (verry little). Then this should clean and freshin the washer up. The best thing to do is not to shut the door on washer when not in use.

Sour smell coming from washer even when door is


If you have a front loader it will hold water around the seal of the door and after time it will mold and start to smell.

Brown dirt-like looking "gunk" coming out of the washer


The filter on your pump is probably clogged with lint and stuff. You have to remove the bottom front panel, 3 torx screws underneath. The panel will drop and come off. Drain off the excess water from the hose you see. The white filter cover is right in front. Get yourself a bunch of towels or a good big plastic bag to collect water. Unscrew the filter cover and twist the filter out. Clean out all the stuff and put it back in carefully.

Next: You can use Affresh to clean your front loader. Deposits of soap and other such things can be stuck around the inside tub of your washer. Try this product, it works great on all front loaders. Use hot water with the Affresh pellet with no clothes and run the machine through a cycle. Also helps with any stagnant water smells. Have you cleaned out your pump lately. Put the pellet inside the machine, not in the soap dispenser.
Pl give me a good rating for the free help, thanks.
