Look at the manufacturer instructions for help first for guidance. If none, I suggest you put in a heavy duty dose of chlorine bleach. Dont exceed 25% mix to start.

Mold in dryer


Mold grows in dark damp areas with reduced ventilation. Mold does not grow if humidity is below 60%.. If the area is air conditioned or dehumidified simply leave the door open. You could also park a "damp-rid" in the dryer when not in use. Don't forget to take it out before loading.

Major mold around the rubber "drum"...tried everything to remove it but nothing has worked. How easy would it be to replace it? Help please!!!


You would need to pull it out of the track that is around the door panel itself and replace it with the new gasket. You may have up to 4 screws or clamps to help keep something like this in place. Make sure to keep the door cracked to help let water evaporate and not grow mold. Also, as in most Owner's Manuals, you are to clean it with bleach or vinegar to help prevent mold. Once mold grows, you can kill the bacteria from spreading, but mold stains and will always look like it is dirty.

Towel mildew smell is being transferred from the washer. The washer must be cleaned first. The problem is not "brand specific" all clothes washers have mold growth to a certain degree. Bleach or vinegar will kill the mold inside your washer but won't remove it or the residue it grows on thereby making the situation worse because it leaves a "base" for more detergent to collect on and more mold will grow.

Washing machine mold / mildew odor is caused by:
#1 cause is overuse of detergents. Detergent companies are notorious for instructing to use too much detergent. Especially with soft water or when using liquid detergent no more than 1 tbsp of any detergent should be used.
#2 most common cause is using fabric softener because it's dispensed in the rinse cycle and will coat the inside of the outer tub with residue that is a food source for mold to grow.
#3 using only cold water for washing is fine but makes preventative maintenance very important. A weekly hot soak will dissolve odor-causing residue from inside your washer.
#4 not using the washer. If the clothes washer isn't used very often maintenance is especially important. If leaving for a vacation it's a good idea to clean your washer. Do a search to "remove washer odor" to read just how big the problem is. There are all natural washer cleaners that will also remove mildew odor from towels and clothing after the washer has been cleaned.

Kenmore Washer Odor


Meoser,
I've been selling the only available all natural washing machine and towel mold and mildew remover online at smellywasher.com since 2006.
It's now also available at Ace, Tru Value, Hardware Hank and Do It Best hardware stores. One bottle provides 24 treatments and guarantees to remove mold, mildew, or any odor from your washer. After the washer is cleaned it also safely and easily gets rid of the mildew smell from any towel or clothing that the odor has transferred to.
The dark, moist environment of your clothes washer is the perfect place for mold and bacteria to grow. See: http://www.cbsnews.com/video/watch/?id=5408971n
We can't change that environment but we can stop the food source for them to grow buy reducing the amount of detergent used and stopping fabric softener use. Go to the blog page at smellywasher.com to read advice on the cause of and cure for washing machine and towel odor.

Make a boil wash (with no clothes and detergents) put in the powder's drawer a cup of bicarbonate of soda. It should clean the machine and move out the bad smell. Good luck!
