That happened to me too. Check for mold and mildue around the inside seal, if you find anything BLACK, clean it up. Also, pull out the drawer where the laundry detr is and clean it as well. Also, when the washer is not in use keep the door open, this will cut down on the mold and mildue.

Hi We Have a ge front load washer and dryer and it seems that our clothes smell musty at times. I've tried leaving the door open on the washer when not in use. Could there be another prooblem??


Try using vinegar, baking soda, or bleach in an empty load to counteract any residues left in onboard water. Also check for debris stuck in door baffle(rubber sleeve between door and tub).

Clothes smell bad in my GE front loader.  It's one of the first models they came out with - about 3 years old.  Thanks.


Run the unit through a cycle with HOT water and a small box of baking soda plus detergent--no clothes. There are a number of cleaning products on the market that do the same thing (but more expensive). Redo this whenever you notice the smell returning.

My samsung wf448aap washer leaves clothes smelling like wet dog???? Using HE Tide and Snuggles still when they are done they smell.


vinegar apparently is good for using in a machine instead of fabric softner and will remove unwanted smells as well

Odors on the clothes after washing in Maytag front loader


The brand of your front loader is not that material on this issue. What is happening is that your old top load washer may have used as much as 45 gallons of water per cycle, while some front loaders use as little as 12. Because of the low water use, you must cut back on the additives you are using. Use only 1 tablespoon of HE detergent (even less if 2x or 3x detergent) per load. If you use fabric softener, use only 1 teaspoon per load. Odor on clothes after wash is indicating that the detergent and or softener has not been fully rinsed out. If you throw a load of washed towels into your machine and start a cycle without any soap, then stop the cycle, you should not see any suds. If you do, there is obviously soap left in the clothes. With bath towels, the towels are used to absorb clean water off a clean body. They do not need soap when you wash them, and never use fabric softener on towels.

Soap left in clothes


hope you are using he detergents (high effeciency low suds) also if you have soft water oversudsing can occur even with he ..try reducing amount ..also have been told tide he detergent tends to suds more so may try switching detergent brands try runing washer with no soap no clothes begore next load to flush out any detergent that may remain ..be sure to run washer with bleach no clothes on short cycle peroidically to avoid mold/mildew odors that front loads tend to acquire after a few months use and leave door open if possible between uses..let me know about detergent thanks

Musty smell, but can't tell from where


I have the same problem with a 3 month old ge front loading washer.after 1 month it started off smelling musty..I thought it was my imagination, now at 3 months old our clothes smell so bad I think we might just have to buy new clothes! everytime I wash a load the clothes smell worse and now you can even smell it just walking into our closet 2 floors up. A new washing washing machine should NOT be doing this! so far leaving the door open in between washes has helped a little but I plan on tipping it back and finding the hidden filter today. Isn't it lovely that they don't mention a filter that needs monthly cleaning or it's location in the manuals?!

GE Front Loading Washing Machine seems to be holding water....


The high speed spin of a front load washer should normally do a good job of getting squeezing out the water but if there is an oversudsing condition that makes it hard for the drain pump to operate then the suds and water will just stay there. First make sure there is no actual clog in the drain line then run a load with no soap or detergent and see what happens. It's always better to use a low suds detergent with this type of machine
