    We have a Kenmore HE4T. We leave the door open ALL the time. We have run a bleach cycle. We have used the Waher cleaner provided by the Sears repairman. Why do my clothes and especially towels STINK. I cant take it! We got the machine in march and this has been an issue since day one. Any help?

Hi there the filter is at the bottom of the machine behind the kickplate but if you are getting a bad smell it is more likely your machine needs a service wash ie. run some old towles through on a 90 degree cycle with some soda crystals.
hope this is of some help

I have an indesit wia 101 front loader washing machine. At the moment it will not drain or spin & the red light flashes really quickly


HI,
Check back of washe with a flashlight for a bent or clogged drain hose. Do not move washer to check it. When you move it , it will straighten out and you will never know if it was bent
Also while it is pumping , pick up end of drain hose at drain and observe the volume of water being pumped.
If no water then the Pump may need replaced

Hi there, my Indesit W133S front loader tub washing machine has stopped spinning, it made a funny metallic scratching sound mid cycle and then wouldnt spin. When I removed the washing even the empty drum...


Taking a guess is all that is possible...

The drum bearings have seized.
Something has broken and jammed the drum drive pulley.
Something has become jammed between the washtub and drum.

Your next step is to remove the top of the cabinet and examine the drive, ensure the motor still spins ok and the belt is intact, pulley not broken, etc.

If you find nothing wrong the task becomes fairly major as the cabinet will probably need dismantling in order to remove the front of the washtub for a closer inspection.

Why does my front loading washing machine smell bad and make my laundry smell sour?

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.

I have a hotpoint wf740 which has had a bad smell coming from it, i took the front off the bottom, and unscrewed the filter which then snapped when i pulled it off as it was full of coins. (my dad gave me...


I think this is your pump and filter.

I spent a very long time looking for this. I recommend you look in your local phone book business pages for Appliance parts / supply and have your model number WF740 in hand. These complete pump assys appear to be cheaper than just the filter. You can order the new pump / filter assy and just use the filter for now.

Thanks for using FixYa,

When washing iwe get a horrible smell like bad


Is this a newly installed machine?

That smell would normally be associated with drains, indicating that the outlet from the machine to the drain is not correctly fitted with a trap.

There is water in the inside reservoir of the dishwasher!!!


The filter should be located at the bottom right front of washer, possibly behind a removeable plastic cover at bottom.
Unscrew anti- clockwise to remove and clean.
Hope this helps.

Stopped working mid cycle. The timer still counts down but does not fill, agitate, spin, drain. And before it stopped, the water that was draining out smelled really bad.

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.

Use quite 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.
