How do I get my clothes to SMELL like clean clothes? Darn washing machine stinks them up!

Check the drain where ti empties into, smell the drain thats most likely where the odour is coming from.

Spinning cycle

Keeping in mind that the soap & bleach gets dispensed into your wash on the second to last rinse cycle and that most all rinse cycles are in cold water. Is your cold water valve screen plugged causing your washer to rinse poorly? Are you using the HE detergent? If not maybe the washer is sudsing up to much and having a hard time rinsing all the suds and bleach out and leaving the clothes soapy.

Fill the washer up with no clothes in it on a cold/cold wash setting does it take a long time to fill the washer up? Also when it is full and agitating is there suds in the washer?

Last suggestion is if the drain is hose is a lot higher than the top of the washer it might have a hard time draining out all of the soap water before the next load

How much HE detergent is used can vary from household to household, depending on such factors as water softness level, soil level of clothing, load size, etc. Because excessive suds can cause build up in the machine, leading to decreased cleaning performance, odor and damage to parts, reduce the amount of detergent if sudsing occurs. How do you know when you have gotten all the soap out? Try extra rinse and make use of custom program to perform additional rinse.

My clothes stink so bad from my front end LG washer! My co-worker on my first week of work started buying bath and body sprays and body wash leaving it on my desk. I'm so pissed off because my washer was...

My LG stunk too. I did the tub washing with 1 cup bleach and wiping the rim, leaving everything open, nothing worked. I added 2 cups of a 6% bleach and used the tub cleaning cycle, rinsed with an empty hot water cycle then added bleach-able clothes to the 2nd hot water rinse (the third cycle/step). It gets a very strong bleach smell so don't take a whiff if you open the door in the first 2 cycles! After I did the strong bleach cycle, I am able to treat with just the 1 cup bleach about every 3 or 4 weeks and I make sure to wash with a hot water wash every week and a half at the least. This seems to keep my clothes smelling fresh like they should. Before I bought the LG, I read where people turned up the amount of water the washer takes in but I can't find the link that said how to do that. I think it was 1/4 turn on a screw on the top of the machine (when you take the cover off) but I can't guarantee how to do that.

Sud message on whirlpool duet front load washer also after washing clothes i notice a mildew smell on the clothes.

You areusing too much soap. Run a rinse cycle and use less soap next time. As for the mildew leave your door cracked open after you are done using the machine.

Clothes smell musty like wet towels after washed and dried.

check your detergent you are using, it should be a HE detegrent for High Efficency machines, too much regular detergent will suds up and nver be removed from clothing causing such a smell.a quick test to see if your using too much detergent, grab a sock form oyour drawer(clean one) place it in a glass of water and swish it up and dowen a few times, if soapy bubble wateris present then youre over soaping!

My washer has a really bad smell like musty if i leave the doors closed or if I leave clothes in for a couple of hours is this a probem with them

hi there,

the musty smell is from the door boot or gasket. deposit from clothes and detergent get trapped in there and have nowhere else to go. i would recommend purchasing Washerfresh tables to get rid of the deposits. they are available all over.
