SOURCE: Terrible Smell

Try a Quarter cup of dish washer detergent and a hot wash. this will flush out the inner bowl. Make sure you use the powder only and watch for over foaming. You might be getting a funny smell from the fabric conditioner.This stuff forms badly to the side of the bowls like glue. You couild take the bowl to pump hose off and clean the system out including the pump making sure you unplug the washing machine first. I would personally flush it out two or three times first. steve NZL, keep it simple

Are you sure the smell comes from the washer water and not the air conditioner? If the washer water smells you will smell it strongest on the windscreen on the outside of the car. Check this to be sure you have located the source of the smell.

Commonly smells inside the car come from the air conditioner because there is mould growing on the air filters. These can be taken out and cleaned to get rid of the smell. Look in your user manual for guidance on how to do it.

SOURCE: As i wash my car front windscreen,water runs into

The drains in the gutters under the hood are clogged. Straighten out a wire coat hanker and push it down to break up the clog. Road dirt, dust, traction material & leaves & pine needles will form a plug very fast.

SOURCE: Windscreen wash full, motor runs but little coming out of jets.

This may be because the motor employed for squirting the water is not functioning.Also check if the nozzle spraying the solution is not stuck.Insert a small pin into the nozzle and clean off any dirt stuck in it.Also the position of the nozzle can be adjusted by rotating the pin after insertin the pin into the nozzle.Also Check the pipe inside the reservoir if any dirt is stuck inside.also at times the the pipe connecting to the nozzle just under the bonnet may be loose or unconnected.So check all these.

Bacteriological action is becoming more of a problem nowadays due to low temperature washing , the deteregents , wash your clothes well but do not kill off bacteria , this is generally harmless to us but can build up in your machine , giving rise to a smell and sometimes a slime which can get on your washing. A regime of High temperature washes WITH NO CLOTHES IN MACHINE , just a dose of bio-powder every six to eight weeks , may help.

Terrible smell from the washer. This is a new


do not use baking soda this will react with your detergent and leave smelly deposits and reduce the wash performance modern good quality detergents contain everything needed for a good wash result and a sweet smelling machine. try a hot wash with detergent and an empty load to get rid of smell.

Terrible smell coming from washer while in rinse mode.


This is classic bad design actually.
Some washers are worse than others for this.

Use an oxygen based bleach in a trigger spray, and remove the detergent drawer. Use the spray everywhere in there - and remove the drawer completely to wash it in a mild bleach solution.
Use a small brush to remove the mould in there - and flush it down the pipe with more spray.
If you an get a foaming cleanser down there - then even better - or an alcohol based sanitiser spray.

Also wipe over the door seal rubber - as this sometimes collects stagnant water in the folds.

Reassemble, and do a hot wash with a few white hand towels to remove all the bleach.

You may need to do this every month.
Doing hot washes helps - maybe with a cap of bleach.

(I think the manufacturers do this on purpose - so you wash more often - breaks machines - you buy a new one etc.)

Terrible smell in washing machine


I used white vinegar in the machine and did a full wash.
I am subsequently not using a softener in the machine as I have found out that this is what caused the smell.
I now use white vinegar instead of softener and this has solved the problem.
