There seems to be water being retained in the machine


The machine will always leave about 3 cup fulls of water in the bottom but usually you cant see it inside the metal drum.It's possible that the pump is restricted & not flowing out properly,there should be whats cauld a button trap,a little flap door at the lower front of the machine that should be opened & cleaned regularly.Alternatively water might be sigphoning back thru the drain hose into the machine.I hope this was helpfull.

Maytag front load washer - smell musty


the water in the unit is normal, to kill the smell when you are done doing wash for the day dampen a rag with bleach and whip down the door gasket. You can buy a cleaner called "afresh" it works as well. If your unit is a neptune check with maytag it might have a recall on the door gasket for growing mould

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.

Water between the drum even when not on


Water between the drum is a common problem with not only front load but top load as well.
Front load washers such as the neptune have an airtight/water tight door which will hold moisture in the machine when closed. Try opening door and keep open between loads. In addition, a monthly cleaner specific for the front load machine will help this problem

Moldy smell inside GE profle top loader washer


Check the pump and make sure that it is draining the water. There will always be a little water left over but you should never be able to hear it very easily. Once you check the pump and make sure it is operating properly check the water sensor to make sure that it is acuratly reading the water hieght. After that take one cup of Vinegar and run a hot load of water will kill the mold and clean your system out

Stinky washer


I have the same problem. The solution is to use bleach with your whites. It's better to use a normal amount of bleach frequently rather than a lot of bleach only once in a while.

Smelly wash tub, in washer.


Model nums are fine in the store, if it is an oasis or calypso make sure drain hose is not in drain more than 5 inches. If not your pump might be going out or is clogged. A great cleaner developed is called washer magic and it will help the smell with some elbow grease. If not and is a traditional top load check motor and gearcase or even the timer for wear in a old machine.

My Kenmore Elite He3 sounds like it has water in the tub after washing AND smells of MOLD?


there is always some water left inside the machine and that is probably what you are hearing are you using liquid detergent? if so this is almost certainly the cause of the smell. liquid detergent leaves a nasty slime inside thge machine and smells like drains. put on a boil wash with no clothes and revert to using powder detergent
