The LE error code is an over suds error.
the smell could be coming from lint and foreign object matter collected in the rubber bellows that is conected to the drain pump this should be cleaned out i hope this helps

Washer/dryer smells like a dirty disclothe. I dont' use fabric conditioner and I have serviced was at 90 deg with no clothes in and biological powder but it still smell. I have only used the dry cycle...


Hello
What did the guys say the did the service on your washer? I recommend you add 3 scoops of dishwasher powder and set your washers temp to 90 deg and let it run the problem is that your clothes washing powder dose not remove any build up or smell.
Thanks

We have this samsung dryer and my towels smell like stale lockerroom smells and it is very bothersome. All of our other clothes smell fine, but the towels smell horrible.


I have this problem with my Siemens machine, it is due to mainly running low temp washes and bateria building up in the hoses etc. (more prevalent if the machine is connected directly to the sink and not on a stand pipe). I run a 90 degree cycle every 4 weeks with the machine empty except for two capfuls of baby sterilisng fluid (approx half a mug) I buy stores own as it is cheaper than miltons. The first time I did mine I ran the cycle twice to be sure it was cleared out. My machine is six years old and the first smelly signs were when it was about a year old, I run the maintenance wash religiously ever 4 weeks and run a machine descaler such as oust thru every 4-6 months. Hope this helps. Roni. (ps don't be tempted to use bleach as it foams up and can cause more problems!!)

Our front-loading HE washing machine delivers


try putting in 2 caps of a citrus or pine bleech straight in to the drum with some old rags. then select a boil wash. the rags will spray the water around the tub, the bleech will clean the tub and make it smell fresh. DON'T put any clothing in whilst doing this. if you are worried about bleech in the machine just select a rinse cycle after. i do this once every 3 months

Whirlpool Ultimate Care II washer went dead during fill cycle


Start with the capacitor. It has a funny smell when they go bad. The motor will smell bad as well when it burns up.

Maytag neptune washer


yes, but 900 is a little high for my area. is it loud in spin now? the seal can be replaced for about 50-80 part labor is 1 to 3 hours. if you just smelled the smoke and it is not loud you are ok for a long time, reduce load size and it will probly be ok for some time

Washing Machine smell


The problem comes from the design of the front load washers. There is always a little water left in the tub after the machine is used. Running a bleach load will deal with the mildew until the machine is used again. I leave the door open when I am not using my washer, and this does help.
