I have an IQ touch front load washer. lately I have noticed a mildew smell coming from the clothes and drum after washing. i have followed the manual and completed the refresh and comlete cleaning...


Water can remain in ANY washer after the load is done. With a top-loading washer, it's easy to leave the lid up so that the water evaporates. With a front loader such as yours, however, the open door can take space in your laundry area, so we usually close the doors. I suggest that you take a dilute solution of chlorine bleach and water and put it on a disposable cloth and wipe down the inside of your washer as well as the areas around the door itself and the part of the washer that the door closes onto. Once you've done this, leave the door open until the smell dissipates OR overnight. If you will get into the habit of leaving the door open for a couple of hours after you're done with your laundry, you will probably solve the problem.
I really hope this helps. If it does, please come back to Fixya and rate my solution.

The fridge and freezer smell like a dead animal. cleaned the inside with bleach but still smells for weeks. model w10212088


There are two reasons for bad smells. 1. Long time not being used. 2. Lack of cleaning inside compartment.

Solution: Unplug fridge. Keep open fridge door. Dip a dry cloth in soap water and start cleaning each and every compartment. Keep freezer door also open. And then clean with another dry cloth. Keep both doors open for nearly 5 hrs. It will be enable fresh air to **** the smell inside fridge.
After 5 hrs close the fridge and run on empty for one hour. Keep food items after one hour. Please keep all food items closed vessel. Not only it's avoid odor but also be hygienic.
If you use to keep fish items in freezer, clean fridge once in a week.(Spray roo spray in the room when you keep fridge door opened. Don't spray into fridge.)Helpful.

There is a terrible smell from my washer


Hi, what happens is that water sits at the bottom of the discharge pipe, as well as a build up of "gunk", which is a great breeding ground for bacteria and such. So during the first rinse out, the smelly water and gunk is discharged into the drain, and the smell comes up from the laundry tub drain. Pour a few cups of bleach into the discharge hose and let it sit for an hour. This will kill all the nasties. Then just run the machine once through to pump out the bleach.

Everytime we do laundry, we have a horrible smell in the washing machine. We have tried bleach and hot water but no success. Any other ideas?


Be sure your using HE Laundry det. only use the recommended amount on the bottle, I use the liquid, the less the better, I use the least amount.....To much soap left in clothes can cause mildew and stinky smell, also I recommend using a fabric softner, it helps to remove the soap....and smells good....also use a good washer cleaner, I use Affresh, they come in tablets, go to www.affresh.com and put in you zipcode to find where you can purchase it in you area......make sure after a load is finished that it doesn't sit in the tub with the lid down for long, removing the laundry promptly will also help with stinky laundry........also, leave the lid or door open for a couple of days to air it out after cleaning.....use the Affresh at least once a month.......hope this helps you

Musty smell


Run your machine through its cycle with NO clothes and when it is filling up with water put bleach in the water. Put bleach in only at the start of cycle.
Before you do this clean all inside parts the best you can yes with bleach and you can run something like fleecy to make clothes soft and smell nice when you wash your clothes as well. Our machine has a special holder to put softener in.
Do NOT have clothes in when running the heavy bleach through it. This should kill the bacteria .

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
