    also if you leave the door ajar slightly between washes, the inside can dry out to prevent this problem

Clothes have a sour smell to them after being washed; what is the problem?


my mom always told me that after you use the washing machine, you have to keep the door open. otherwise, mold and mildew will flourish, and it will get on your clothes when you wash them.

This smell usually is a washing machine issue. Run a washing machine cleaner through on a monthly basis and the smell will be gone.

Clothes smell like body odor after washing. using tide ultra he2 detergent.


i had what sounds like a similar problem. i complained of our laundry smelling sour then finally like sour sewage and a flooded laundry room. i was told that when its not draining properly, it can create a siphon-effect and actually pull the dirty water back out of the drain lines-yuk! i hope this isnt true.
there was a baby sock stuck in the pump preventing it from draining properly. hope your problem can be remedied as easily.
as for the smelly clothes, i always add 1/2 cup white vinegar to each load. it does wonders for odors.

Sour clothes smell from washer


Until you can find the filter (I'll investiate!) I suggest running it on hot hottest wash you can (empty) with just bleach. That at least should kill the bacteria that are causing the smell

My washer a Tromm LG DLE377W leaves a bad smell in clothes after washed the smell is in the washer also smells sour


Sears has tablets for front load washers that work great. I use one every month and it has helped the stinky washer smell and the bad smell in the clean clothes. It is called Affresh and it works better than any of the cleaners you can buy in the grocery stores.
