You might want to check the exhaust outlet to your dryer! If you notice a lot of lint your exhaust hose from the dryer may be blocked.....lots of fun cleaning out too!!

1. check immediate area of dryer, under behind along side for cause. 2. Clothes dryers intake the air from the area surrounding the dryer. If there is any odor in the area it will add the smell to the clothes being dried. I once used insect spray in my daughters basement and the dryer pulled the odor up from the basement to the first floor.

Run a load empty on the hottest setting with a cup of bleach.

Then, after finished using the machine each day, leave the door open for a few hours to allow the rubber seal to dry.

Bad smell in washing machine...clothes smell bad after wash


hi there is a build up of lime and old dirt in the inside of your drum the best thing to get rid of the smell is put a very small amount of bleach in the drum and put your machine on a very hot wash it will help in your hand book it will tell you to use your hot wash with a bit of powder and no cloths at leased once a month i dont know if you use your hottest wash most people dont these days because of the low temp powders, also the best product to use is lim away but you can only get it on usa bases or from the usa you might find someone on line that sells it that will get rid of all the lime thats been built up in your machine if you cant just use a bit of thick bleach hope this was helpful

Don’t wait for the machine to jam to look into your filter.

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 very hot water with the Affresh pellet with no clothes and run the machine through a cycle. Also helps with any stagnant water smells. Put the Affresh pellet inside the machine, not in the soap dispenser.

You can give me a ‘very helpful’ rating for the free help, can't you. Thanks.

Leaves a bad smell on the cloths while they are drying not all the time just every now and again, very disstressing, please advise


Hi,

There are couple reasons for the bad smell . The easy way to remove it is to make a boil wash (with no clothes and detergents) put in the powder's drawer a cup of bicarbonate of soda.

It should clean the machine and move out the bad smell.

Thanks for contacting Fixya.com

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.
