Question about Whirlpool Washing Machines

Open Question

I have a top-loading Whirlpool Cabrio washer, 2 years old. I get a rotten egg smell that worsens when a load is being washed.

I have tried Afresh (8 times) as well as bleach, baking soda and vinegar multiple times. Do I have to call a repairman at this point?

Top load washer smells like rotten eggs when water is draining into tub


As someone who has had a deep well drilled and found water, but water contaminated with iron and sulfur, I can tell you first hand about the rotten egg smell. The water softener will remove the iron that can turn clothes orange, but doesn't do anything to remove the rotten egg odor. You will need a charcoal (carbon) water filter to eliminate the sulfur smell.

Terrible smell during washing cycle!


I am not a repair professional. I am just a 78 year old
man who has been making his own repairs for about
50 years. Therefore the washer ID doesn't mean
much to me. It's been about 55 years since I had
experience with front load washers. However I can
suggest you go to www.applianceaid.com where
they have very good trouble shooting and repair
information on front loaders. I think you'll find what
you need there. Good luck with it.

Why does my Maytag Neptune Washing machine smell like rotten eggs everytime I turned it on? Maytag Neptune MAH7500AWW Serial 70802618ZM


you have mold built up around the door boot. you need to buy a package of a product called AFRESH (3 tablets in it). follow the directions on the package. use one a month for maintenance on this machine. also, make sure you do one or two hot washes per month to keep the hoses cleaned from build up of soap and or fabric softener. leave the door open a little bit after each load.

Laundry room smells like rotten eggs


Does the sewer drain line have a trap at the bottom that prevents sewer gas from entering the room? If the smell seems to be coming from the washer itself, run a wash cycle empty with a cup of baking soda, detergent and hot water to clean the interior.

Rotten Egg Smell


Make sure the rubber door gasket is clean. Pull it back and clean under and around it. The gasket will collect dirt and begin to mildew causing various odors. Run the machine empty, boil a medium pot of water to almost boiling, then put it in the machine during the wash cycle. This will help clean the lines, during the rinse cycle place a 1/2 cup of vinegar in the unit. Make sure you are using HE detergent. 1-2 tablespoons will due. If your using liquid fabric softner, dilute it by half. These machine use less water than a typical top loader and can't dissolve regular detergent effectively. There by causing your lines to get clogged with gunk.

Rotten Egg Smell


Repair man told me this is common with front load washers. I was told to put Sunlight dish washing detergent (for dishwashers not hands) in the machine (about 1/2 cup) and do a hot wash with the machine empty.
