Question about Hotpoint Aquarius WMA42 Front Load Washer

1 Answer

Clothes don't smell clean

After washing my clothes still smeel musty and unclean. I have used a machine sanitiser twice, tried a couple of boil washes, used white vinegar to disolve any detergent build up and checked the removal hoses and cleaned them.

When on holiday I used the laundry machine with the same detergent and my clothes had lovely smell and were clean, so it must be the machine.

Please help!

My washing machine leaves the clothes smelling bad and i call lg support and they don't want to fix the washer and the lg man came out and said thats a manufacture proble and gave me a case number and...


To prevent a smelly washing machine, leave the lid open on the washing machine when a load is removed to allow it time to dry out. If smells do happen, try washing an empty load with hot water and a mixture of baking soda and vinegar. For front loading washing machines, it is vital that you leave the washing machine door open in between loads. You will also need to wipe down the rubber seal of the washing machine. Small bits of debris and hair can become trapped in the crevices. Giving your machine a quick wipe down after each use will prevent smells and mildew. ONCE YOU GET IT CLEANED OUT IT SHOULD BE GOOD AS LONG AS YOU FOLLOW THESE STEPS.

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.

My clothes are coming out smeeling musty


I have a zwf1241w with similar problem. When I disconnected the drain hose that runs from the drum casing to the pump housing there was a lot of collected debris that had prevented the water from draining through properly. You could try clearing this out.

Clothes have a musty smell if left in the washer


Make shure to do a cleaning cycle. As well, wipe out the inside, the rubber gasket and the door when done washing for the day. We also have found that
leaving the door "Open" for several hours, when finnished, eliminates any future
smells.
