Kenmore oasis top-loader problem

My kenmore oasis top-loader smells. My guess is that water is some how pooling up inside the machine. I do not have any water on the floor and when I wash clothes in the machine everything comes out clean and smells just fine. any idea what's going on?

Use the Whirlpool affresh tablets. Use all three the first time in hot water on the longest cycle. Then use one a month in hot water ect. and it will keep your washer smelling better.

Re: kenmore oasis top-loader problem

You might try using the clean washer cycle, works on mine. I use the full amount of bleach allowed. No more if I can just get that pesky beeping noise to stop...

Kenmore 2600 TOP LOADER smells like Mildew. I can hear water sloshing around under drum. Is that Normal?

The drain on all washers have this issue. Unless the drain hose runs down hill, when the pump stops, water runs back into the machine that was in the hose but was not drained.

Why is my kenmore elite (top loader) oasis washer HE is displaying a code of HC

The water inlet hoses are probably removed and reconnected in reverse, and then trigger the HC error code to flash indicating the hot and cold water inlet hoses are reversed. Reconnect the water inlet hoses properly and start a cycle then let us know what happens next.

Hotpoint Washing Machine smells mouldy as has mould

The filter on your pump is probably clogged with lint and stuff. You have to remove the bottom front panel, 3 torx screws underneath. The panel will drop and come off. Drain off the excess water from the hose you see. The white filter cover is right in front. Get yourself a bunch of towels or a good big plastic bag to collect water. Unscrew the filter cover and twist the filter out. Clean out all the stuff and put it back in carefully.

Next: You can use Affresh to clean your front loader. Deposits of soap and other such things can be stuck around the inside tub of your washer. Try this product, it works great on all front loaders. Use hot water with the Affresh pellet with no clothes and run the machine through a cycle. Also helps with any stagnant water smells. Have you cleaned out your pump lately. Put the pellet inside the machine, not in the soap dispenser.
Pl give me a good rating for the free help, thanks.

Smell coming from inside washing machine. Not musty.

This is a fairly common problem that often arises when the majority of washes are done with cold water.

Do what is called a maintenance wash where you set the machine to run with hot water and maximum fill of water. Add one half cup of baking soda and let it run through it's entire cycle with absolutely no clothes in it.

After it completes its full cycle check for that bad odor. If it is fully gone wonderful. If it is half as bad do a second maintenance wash.

If the maintenance wash doesnt seem to help at alll get back to me and I will make another recommendation.

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.
