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

We have an Aquasmart top loader and our clothes, mainly dark items, are being covered by a scum after washing. We have put the machine through the clean cycle, but this has not made any difference.


I have found with my aquasmart that if you use the 'high efficiency' the water does not cover the clothes sufficiently which is why the soap residue (noticeable more on dark clothes) is visible. I don't use high efficiency. even on conventional sometimes I still have to check that the water level is high enough. Also **use only liquid, low sudsing detergent and do not put it on the clothes-use the dispenser only. As for my machine... Time for the repair man to check the sensing I think

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.

I washed some clothes with petrol on them now the washing and washing machine smells of fuel, how do i get rid of the smell of petrol from my washing machine? thanks Chris


Run the machine with no clothes, only detergent along with washing soda or baking soda, using hot water. Once or twice with this should do it.

My Neptune front load washer has a foul odor. I have tried the HE tablets, wiping it, etc. but it smells bad. When I spin it with my hand, there is water in the background. How do I get rid of the smell?...


Add 3 cups of Sugar Soap concentrate. Then fill the machine and leave it for 24 hrs.
Then put it through wash cycle with no clothes.

If not fixed........machine has to be stripped apart and manually cleaned.

The machine smells moldy even after I ran clorox through it.


keep doing it. it is going to take more than one cycle of cleaning to get rid of the smell. They sell products to help clean out odors of washers. These are some products you can use Washer Magic or Affresh tablets. If you have a Sears near you they sell it. I would use hot water and bleach one cycle then do a Affresh tablet. See how it goes

Musty smell, but can't tell from where


I have the same problem with a 3 month old ge front loading washer.after 1 month it started off smelling musty..I thought it was my imagination, now at 3 months old our clothes smell so bad I think we might just have to buy new clothes! everytime I wash a load the clothes smell worse and now you can even smell it just walking into our closet 2 floors up. A new washing washing machine should NOT be doing this! so far leaving the door open in between washes has helped a little but I plan on tipping it back and finding the hidden filter today. Isn't it lovely that they don't mention a filter that needs monthly cleaning or it's location in the manuals?!
