Run a short, cold water wash with two cups of bleach in the water. Just water and bleach - nothing else.

Hi,
I can't be sure without looking at the machine but I have had several of these type of machines the get cloths under the agitator "wash plate thing" in the bottom of the basket. This will eventually clog up the pump but stuff that hangs out in there can really get to smelling after a while. Try removing the wash plate and see if you see anything under there. In the future make sure you use a lingerie bag for all small items to prevent them from getting stuck under the wash plate.

Until you can find the filter (I'll investiate!) I suggest running it on hot hottest wash you can (empty) with just bleach. That at least should kill the bacteria that are causing the smell

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.

Bad smell


washers and dryers dont make smells themselves its a problem with something u might be putting in it. if u tend to add alot more detergent then usual to your towels then they never completely rinse the water out and will have a mildew smell
