Washing machine smells like mould


The odor may come from several sources. Mildew may be around the door's gasket. That might be cleaned with a rag and a half bleach/half water concoction. The soap dispenser tray may have had stagnant water present. Other hose areas may be growing mildew.

Here are some things you can try:

1) Run dishwasher powder detergent once a month through the washer. Or...
2) Run 3 quarters cup of bleach through an empty hot wash cycle once a month.
3) Yes, baking soda, ye olde oder absorber, can also be tried.
3) Clean the trap (where coins, etc. may be captured). Clean the filter.

Some High Efficiency machines have "high efficiency, HE detergents recommended for them. Does the drum have a soapy coating? If so, it will likely require at least an empty hot water cycle to get rid of the excess soap which may be responsible for the smell.

Naturally, if you are using bleach to clean the the washer door, you want to clean the bleach off too before you ruin some clothes by contact.

Hope this helps.

Wft6500 does not spin


First try resetting your washers computer: turn the washer off. Stand in a completely DRY place and with DRY hands unplug the washing machine. Wait 60 seconds, then plug it back in. Try to run one of the short cycles such as rinse and spin. Do this only once. If this does not work then continue with.......Have you run a cleaning cycle with the recommended cleaning product? If you have not ever you may need to run it more than once, even if you solve the problem the first time, a lot of build up can occur. Many people are unaware of the need to clean their washing machines. Caution: the new washer cleaning products often contain bleach, so I would run a rinse cycle after cleaning before you do laundry again.Good Luck and let us know.

I have an Electrolux washer model EWFLS70JSS. The bleach dispenses during the rinse cycle rather the wash cycle. I thank you in adavance for your help.


This is a siphoning problem. Please clean out the dispenser cup(s) as much as you can and try again. You may need to clean the unit and run vinegar through instead of bleach to unclog any small components.

The rubber seal between the opening and the drum gathers dirt and stinks. Do I need to have this rubber seal replaced or just clean it after each wash with a damp cloth?


Here's what I recommend when asked:
Wipe the seal down liberally with a 50/50 bleach water solution. Pour the remainder into the tob, and add one cup of straight bleach. Fill the dispenser cups with bleach. Run the hottest, longest cycle with the hottest rinse cycle (for us, it is the "sanitary cycle"). After this cycle runs, run a normal cycle to flush out any remaining bleach residue. Here's the important part: leave the door open between loads. This allows the washer to dry out, preventing the formation of the mold, which causes the smelly odors. If you begin to see mold again, wipe it down with a disinfectant solution and continue to leave the door open.
Best regards, --W/D--

Our ten year old kitchenaid dishwasher doesn't get the dishes clean. there is food particles left on dishes if we don't completely rinse our dishes. is there a cleanout filter that needs to be emptied?


Locate your dishwasher's filter. It is typically on the floor of the dishwasher. Pull out the bottom rack and look along the bottom of the dishwasher until you find it.

Use a paper towel or sponge to remove any residue or debris that has accumulated on the outside of the filter once you locate it. On some dishwashers, the filter area does not detach or open, so your hand cleaning will stop here. On other models, you can unscrew the filter housing to access the inside and clean any debris from the filter area. Simply wash out the filter using soap and water, then reassemble once cleaning is complete.

Further clean the filter area by pouring a quart of white vinegar into the bottom of the empty dishwasher. Turn to a wash cycle and allow the dishwasher to run with the vinegar cleaning the mechanisms, including the filter.

To deep-clean your dishwasher and the filter periodically, mix the following ingredients together in a bowl, then pour into the bottom of the dishwasher: 1/2 cup salt, 1/2 cup baking soda and 1 cup bleach. Let the mixture sit in the bottom of the empty dishwasher overnight. The next morning run a wash cycle, letting the bleach mixture clean and disinfect the dishwasher thoroughly.

How much bleach do you add during cleaning cycle?


If the model number is correct, to run a "Clean" cycle on this model washer you need to follow these steps:

1. Make sure wash tub is empty and close the door.

2. Open the dispenser drawer and remove the plastic divider in the MAIN DETERGENT compartment.

3. Select the following options:

a. Select the POWER button.
b. Select RINSE/SPIN.
c. Select LOW SPEED SPIN.
d. Select WARM/COLD water temperature.
e. Select END OF CYCLE SIGNAL to SOFTER.
f. Press EXTRA RINSE button 4 times within 5 seconds and the
will begin.

4. The washer will run a short sensing cycle for about 3 minutes.

5. The washer will beep 4 times and a code will appear on the front panel display.

a. If "Ab" (Add Bleach) appears - skip to step 6.
b. If "Rl" (Remove Load) appears - the door will unlock and you
need to double check the wash tub for any items. Close the
door when complete and press the START button.

6. Add bleach. If this is the first time running the clean cycle add ONE CUP of bleach to the detergent compartment of the dispenser drawer. If this is a monthly routine, add only 1/3 CUP of bleach.

These instructions are listed on page 18 of your owner's manual. If you no longer have a manual, yo can obtain a FREE copy at managemylife.com. Just type in your model number under their "Manuals" link and you will find it listed in .pdf (Adobe) format that you can download or print for free.

If you have questions, please post back and let me know. I hope this helps you.

Mold growing on dishes


Recommend that you run another cycle with no DW soap aded, waiting until the dishwasher has filled with hot water and begins to do the first wash cycle. Then add 1/2 cup of bleach to the water and close the door. Allow the cycle to finish. Run it normally with a standard load of dirty dishes. Note: These high efficiency dishwashers count on the "dirt" of the dirty dishes to help wash/clean the dishes. Recommend you not rinse/wash the dishes before you put them in the dishwasher.

Watch for any occurrence of the black dots and repeat the bleach treatment.

A technician once told me to run my Kenmore Elite 3t ( without clothing ) with some bleach to clean the machine on the inside. I do not have a "clean machine" cycle. However I don't remember how much...


Hello , pour the bleach into where the soap would go [about 2 cups], then fill your softner and bleach containers up as well , run a normal wash with an extra rinse , the bleach will not hurt it so the more the better but to a certain point. this should fix alot of the noticible mildew but to get it all use a brush and scrub with bleach.
