There is a musty smell in the maytag washer even b4 I fill it with water, I've disconneted the hoses & flushed with bleach that did not take care of it,Iv'e run washes without clothes in it...


When a moldy or musty smell develops in a washing machine, many times the smell is coming from the open areas of the agitator. Water along with soap and/or liquid softener sometimes splashes into an open agitator, and when the lid is closed it does not dry out. Instead, mold begins to form, and a musty smell wafts from inside the machine, even after the lid has been opened for an extended period of time. Until the mold is removed the washing machine will continue to smell bad, even if it is used and allowed to air dry with the lid open.The tub can also be the source of the smell. Lint can gather and collect in the holes, and when it does not dry fast enough it ends up smelling musty and moldy. Even the top of the rim can become moldy and musty, but proper cleaning can get rid of the odor.

So that said.To clean the machine,fill to just above the top row of holes in the tub.Add 2 cups of bleach.Let sit for 1-2 hours.Then let the machine run it`s wash cycle.Lastly use bleach water and a rag to wipe the machine down inside and out.If the agitator has a cup on top remove and clean with bleach.Leave the top open so the machine can dry.

Now it should smell better,if so use as normal,and leave the lid open when not in use.

Neptune MLG2000A doesn't drain completely and has moldy smell


You need to clean the stationary "brush" that collects lint and debris from the water during the cycle. The brush can be seen around the tub directly touching it along the bottom/front of the device. Right were I pour my detergent in, after the cloths are in there. To remove the debris I use a bottle brush. You can expect to use trial and error for your attempts. As far as the water being left.... My device has always left water in the bowl. I periodically just run a cycle with no cloths and bleach...HOT.....Mine is not spinning at the moment...again....I think its another call to the local dealer....AGAIN....

How do you get rid of the moldy smell in my front load LG WASHER?


There are some products out there that you can purchase from any Walmart or Grocery chain but what works real well is a mixture of concentrated lemon juice and water. You can make a permanent solution for this use by taking a spray bottle and filling wih 2/3 water and the rest lemon juice, (concentrated), and praying this around the boot and then wiping dry.

I can't get the front panel off my HE3 #44836 to clean the filter. The rubber backing crumbled on my bath mats in the washer. I vacuumed out the tub, but where did the rest of the rubber crumbles go? ...


Read the owners manual. Many washers have 'self cleaning' filters that will get clogged with big stuff. The 'moldy odor' is caused by MOLD. Run a 'extra large' empty load of HOT water with normal detergent + 1 PINT of ordinary bleach. Add another shot (pint) of bleach to the rinse cycle. Sometimes a small article (sock?) will escape the clothes basket and get trapped in the tub--it can't get drained out and can't get back into the clothes basket. The bleach will kill the mold, but if it returns you will have to take the top off and fish the lost article out using a bent clothes hanger as a hook.

Moldy smell


Jeffrey is right - washing water temperature is very important. Just as important is the amount of detergent used and whether or not softener is used. The self-cleaning mode does not address the problem because it does not clean the "splash area" just above the normal waterline. Suds and soiled waters splash up and don't get rinsed out. This is invariably the area of worst buildup. To clean the splash area add 1 cap of smelly washer cleaner to a full load of laundry. The added bulk of the laundry will raise the water level to include the splash area. For more extreme problems intermittently pause to soak.

Moldy smell inside GE profle top loader washer


Check the pump and make sure that it is draining the water. There will always be a little water left over but you should never be able to hear it very easily. Once you check the pump and make sure it is operating properly check the water sensor to make sure that it is acuratly reading the water hieght. After that take one cup of Vinegar and run a hot load of water will kill the mold and clean your system out

Moldy smell


Turn it off, unplug it. Remove filter and check if filter and/or filter and pump housing are clogged with something "smelly". When you're at it check the drain pipe for too.
