Run a cycle with bleach only. nothing else in it. no close or nothing. there might be a problem with your draining hoses. they might not be draining quickly enough. might i suggest you unhook them and make sure there isnt any water in them. please rate my solution

I don't have this problem because I put in about 3/4 cup vinegar into my color loads along with my detergent. The vinegar makes the colors hold their color longer, it helps the fabric last longer (you'll see less lint) & it's keeping the mold at bay as well.

Kenmore elite HE4 moldy smell


keep door open after you use it....keep them open until you use it again.... door can be opened just a little, but can not be closed

let machine work once with highest temperature without anything inside..... with little detergent you always use.....to wash away that smell...

if you keep it closed, then moisture will remain in and provide good environment to bacteria causing black mold to live there.....

you can remove that only mechanically..... take some old dry dampcloth and wipe it away.... it will take some time and hard work.:)

My LG front loading washer smells like wet clothes that have been in the washer for months? Musty smell?washer overnight? Strong smell of musty old clothes


This is caused by the biomass built up inside the tub of the machine. This can also be caused by a moldy door boot. You need to scrub your door boot between the tub and the door. Water settles in the bottom of it and molds. Once you clean this, order affresh washer cleaner for your machine. This kills all the biomass built up in the tub and removes the smell. You will put all three tablets in the drum and run on the longest hottest wash available. When this is completed your machine should smell much better. To keep this from getting so bad again... Keep the washer door cracked open between cycles. This keeps the inside from smelling. Hope this helps

Moldy smell in clothes, especially towels


need to clean the bellow ( rubber around door). theres a tablet you can buy called "Affresh". It will help to remove the moldy smell. just throw it in washer and run through a regular wash cycle. no clothes, just the tablet. If there is a clean cycle on the machine then use that cycle. Whenever you're finished washing, you should leave the door open for about 20-30 minutes so unit can air out. Also you should wipe around the glass and bellow after each use.

Moldy mildew smell won't go away.


When I get the mildew smell , I run the machine empty and only use bleach. Then when done leave the door open to dry out. Works every time.

How do I get the mold out??


Without a proper model number I would say you need to clean your washer with a product called Affresh or Washerfresh. If you don't wipe the door dry and the boot dry, also dry inside the boot between the tub and front of machine. Also, when you finish washing, open the soap dispenser or better yet, take the soap dispenser drawer right out between washings to to let everything air dry and leave the door open. If the smell still persists you will have to change the door boot. Best off to call a reliable repair company such as Sears.

FTF530FS Front Load washing machine. Clothes smell.


all front load washers have the problem. Mold and a build up or dirt and soap and fabric softner cause s old musty smell. The low water use makes the machine dirty and build up inside. Run a few Hot water washes with out clothing, Run it empty ,(run your hot water neer your washer to get the cold water out of the house pipes) hot water and pour bleach in side, 2 or more cups. Keep doing it. When your not using washer leave the door open so air can get inside. Hot wash,es with bleach will keep it clean, also dont use fab softner.

You need to replace the rubber gasket around the front of the door. This gasket holds moisture and over time molds. Give us a call or email us and we;ll be sure to get the correct gasket out to you right away. We hope this helps and we hope to hear back from you real soon.

Stinky, moldy smell on clothes


I agree with your concerns, but, unfortunatly, leaving the door open and emptying the drain trap is all you can do. I would also start washing your laundry with at least a 1/2 cup of borox with each load. This will help with the smelly cloths as well as running the monthly clean cycle or an empty express wash with only bleach.

The machine smells moldy...


moldy smell, may not be mold at all, in fact most "moldy musty" smells actually come from user not using proper detergents, you NEED to be using an HE detergent and little amounts of that even. cut back on fabric \softneer if using, www.affresh.com new product to help alleviate this issue
