Put ammonia in it instead of bleach. DO NOT mix those two chemicals.

Mildew odor in the machine....can't get rid of it and makes clothes STINK!


If you have a smelly front loading clothes washing machine, toss in a Finish Geltabs (the ones that are all liquid) and run the machine on a hot wash cycle, medium to heavy load (to get more water in the tub) with no clothes in the machine. You don't need to use much of a spin cycle so set it on low. The washing machine will come clean and even the moldy spots on the rubber gaskets will disappear. A second treatment may be needed if the smell is not completely gone. We tried everything from vineger to bleach to baking soda to borax to commercially available odor removers from Whirlpool and Tide. Nothing worked until I hit on this idea. It's cheap, easy and can be done anytime your machine needs a refreshing. I used the orange Geltabs but any fragrance would be fine. Keep the door on your washer open a bit when possible to air out to help preclude those nasty smells.

I just want an owners manual for my LG WM2010CW. We bought our house with this great washer, plus I have a mildew smell I can't get rid of


Sorry to say but the mildew odor is from excess use of detergent. The only way to truly get rid of it is to have the tub assembly torn down completely and cleaned out. Also replace the front door seal gasket to truly get rid of everything.
For temporary, you can use a chemical treatment called Whirlout or Affresh to mask out the odor but it won't totally get rid of it.
Good luck.

Dishwasher has a terrible odor in it. I'm guessing it came from an empty sauerkraut glass jar and lid I put through the wash, heated dry and sanitize cycle. How do I get rid of that nasty, something...


Check whether the smell comes from the main drain. Pull your dish washer drain hose and check.

Leave dishwasher door open for few hours. Hope no rate has died inside the machine.

Run a empty wash several times!

Terrible smell from the washer. This is a new


do not use baking soda this will react with your detergent and leave smelly deposits and reduce the wash performance modern good quality detergents contain everything needed for a good wash result and a sweet smelling machine. try a hot wash with detergent and an empty load to get rid of smell.

Terrible foul odor


run the machine as you were doing a regular load of clothes but do not put any clothes in it and use six cups of baking soda in place of any other soap.

This will clean your machine and get rid of the odor.
