Question about Whirlpool Washing Machines
First check to make sure that the machine is draining properly and that the pump filter is clear of any debris.
If the machine is a frontloader a common place for mold to build up is the rubber seal around the door. Clean this out as well as you can with ordinary kitchen cleaner then place a heaped cup of baking soda directly into the drum and run an empty hot/boil wash on a full cycle.
Baking soda has a cleaning and neutralising effect and will help remove any build up of mold or gunge within the machine. You may need to run two of these washes before you see a solid result.
Thereafter I recommend you run a monthly 'maintenance wash' with the baking soda to prevent the problem arising again.
Hope this helps. Thanks for using FixYa.
