IMPORTANT: Read thoroughly. DO NOT add detergent or other laundry products to this cycle.
1. Remove all items from the washer.
2. Open the dispenser drawer and 2/3 cup (160 mL) of liquid chlorine bleach to the bleach compartment. DO NOT use more than 2/3 cup (160mL) of bleach per cycle as this will lead to product damage.
3. Close the washer door and dispenser drawer.
4. Select the Clean Washer cycle or a full wash cotton 104 F wash (40 C). DO NOT use any higher temperature as this will cause unnecessary fumes
5. Press Start and allow cycle to complete.
6. If the bad odour persists, repeat the procedure 1 or 2 more times. This may be necessary if this is the first time you have run this cycle.
7. After the cycle is complete, leave the door open slightly to allow ventilation and drying of the washer interior.
8. Repeat the cleaning procedure monthly.
To maintain the washer freshness:
1. Use only HE High Efficiency detergent.
2. Leave the door open after each cycle to for better ventilation and drying of the washer interior.
3. Use warm / hot water in your machine unless the fabric you are washing requires cold.
4. Use the correct amount of fabric softener.
5. If your laundry room is damp, use a dehumidifier.
6. Clean the door seal of visible residue.

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.

I have an LG Tromm WM2277HW front load washing machine that suddenly started leaking from the bottom of the machine. All hoses and drains are tight and the water is coming from underneath. Originally, it...


Escaping water alongside a nasty smell is often the cause of a blocked water pump or resivour the more washs you do the more the lint will build up & the more the lint builds up the more bloked it will become meening the more water that will escape.. this should be an easy fix but not for everyone.. 1st make sure you have disconected all the power supply then check any or all filters you may have after that you will need to look inside to find the water resivour this will be a plastic bottle shaped for your machine just looking at it you will be able to tell if it has a lint or limescale build up if so it will need removing & flushing out.. there may also be an extra filter at the bottom front of your machine if you open this some water will leak out & you will be able to see if you have a lint build up (this will also have the best of your nasty smell in it) the smell is an effect simular to doing a wash & leaving the cloths in the machine for a few days basicly the lint is submerged in water for long periods of time giving it that smell once cleaned out the smell will subside too

Hope this helps

If you have well water, Check your "Annode" Rods in the Hot Water Heater. Had mine do this. I had to Replace the Whole thing as it built up to much Contaminents from the "Hard" Water.

My new cuisinart breadmaker has a strong nasty smell coming from the bottom. I have already returned one for the same reason so I don't want to send this one back. It makes my kitchen smell really nasty....


Hmmm... I'm back again. My machine still smells terrible! I live in a relatively small, open plan apartment and this bread machine is smelling up the place. I am very unhappy with this because I am otherwise pleased with the bread it makes.

I removed the bottom plate to see what is causing the smell. I have NO doubt whatsoever that the problem is the rubber belt, which I believe controls the kneading paddle. I've taken to leaving it outside to air but am stumped for a permanent resolution.

Any remedies for stinky rubber that I've come across involve liquids, heat or powders etc.. just things in general that wouldn't be prudent near the electrical panel, as well as not wanting to take the risk of damaging the machine and having it stop working altogether.

I got it at Costco in January, no hope of returning it there. Has anyone contacted Cuisinart about this? I wonder if they are aware of the issue if it seems to be widespread. I am in Ontario.

What happened with the B&D? Did the problem ever resolve? Irony is that I had returned a smelly B&D in order to get the Cuisniart! Same problem, but IMO I think it was worse with the B&D and the Cuisinart is a better machine over all (if it didn't smell so bad!)

My Kenmore Elite He3 sounds like it has water in the tub after washing AND smells of MOLD?


there is always some water left inside the machine and that is probably what you are hearing are you using liquid detergent? if so this is almost certainly the cause of the smell. liquid detergent leaves a nasty slime inside thge machine and smells like drains. put on a boil wash with no clothes and revert to using powder detergent

Nasty water accumulation from washing machine


Posted by Jay on Jan 11 2009

I have the same washer now for several years now. I keep getting the smell now and then. After reading all these disappointed people I went down to the machine and cleaned out the "Pump filter". It had been smelling today, I was tired of this problem also. So i opened the little door at the bottom front left corner. There you find a little black hose, pull it out a little and pull the plug. There you drain the water that's laying inside smelling up the house. Now you un-screw the big black cap. Once you remove the cap, you find a plastic filter-catcher. I found paper, a dime, and several other things that came out of my pockets. You can take the basket to the sink and wash it out. Put it back together and try checking it in one month. Also I used some needle nose pliers to clean the nasty stuff around the gasket. At the bottom of gasket try pulling it back to get to the hair and ****. We have a dog, so the hair is bad.
