As the Door Boot Seal is convoluted it will hold a certain amount of water when the cycle is finished

Have you tried placing a wad of kitchen roll into the area to soak up the excess water before you close the door ?

Smell from water remaining in grey seal


My GE washer model wcvh6400j0ww was leaking. May be standing water under your machine. The repair person thought the gasket. It turned out to be the water in-let pipe (WH41X10118 and you will need seal WH41X10119) and not the gasket. He ordered the gasket and took machine apart to replace and found cracked pipe. Take your machines front off and make sure it is the gasket leaking. Good Luck,

The inside of my Speed Queen washer smells badly . It makes my clothes smell also , but not near as much as inside of the washer . What happened to cause this ?? Also , the detergent holder never...


Front load washers seal up tight with door closed. This causes the smell. Leave the door open in between loads.

The detergent holder always holds a little water.

Allways smells like mildew when open up


Yup, my front loader has the same issue. I found the rubber seal around the door has a fold in it that holds water and sometime candy wrappers and various stuff from pockets.
By wiping the fold in the seal out on occassion and not closing the door in between uses, the issue was resolved.

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.

Water seems to be left in bottom of washer


This is a Maytagism for this style of washer.
Quick solution... take a terry towel and wipe out the standing water in the front door seal area and when you're done, toss the towel into the wash load.
Also make the loads a little smaller...it will keep the smell from reoccuring as much.

Mold and bacteria in your door seal is a symptom of problems deeper inside the unit. All washers - not just Whirlpool, have this problem. The area of worst buildup is always on the inside of the plastic outer tub just above the normal waterline where suds and soiled water splash up and don't get rinsed out. To clean this problem area add 1 or 2 caps of smelly washer cleaner to a full load of laundry. The added bulk of the laundry will raise the water level to include the "splash area". Intermittently pause to soak more extreme cases.

Two problems, mildew smell and loud noise in spin cycle


drum bearing failure due to the water seal in front of the bearings failing the smell is probably the grease mixed with water in the outer tub

WHIRLPOOL DUET FRONTLOAD WASHER


I had similar problem, the front door seal can trap small items,socks,handtowels. I didnt figure this out for some months, each load of clothes had a foul, mildew smell, Check door seal for trapped clothes, run intermittent cycles with bleach only, no clothes, be sure to leave door open when not in use to air out , this will reduce smell.

Mold? behind seal on whrilpool duet front load.


Run it a couple times on hot water with bleach in it. Should help. Also run through with dishwasher detergent in it. This helps clean too. I leave door ajar to allow air in washer. You can also purchase cleaner just for this at parts place.
