Question about KitchenAid Superba KSRS27CN Side by Side Refrigerator

Stinky water from frigidaire side by side.

The water coming out of my frigidaire side by side is stinky. Happened after I changed the filter the first time. If I run enough water (about 3 pints) the water is no longer stinky. Smell comes back in less than an hour. Not sure if it's the line or the filter.

Stinky drip pan

Try vacuuming and cleaning the coils on the bottom of the fridge. The water is supposed to evaporate by the heat/air movement and if that is being slowed by dust and junk clogging the won't evaporate the water.

Duet washer is stinky.I leave the tub door and the soap dispenser door open when not in use. Even so, epecially after doing several loads in a row I have a very stinky machine There is mold growing on the...

are you on a well??
do you use bleach in with your whites??
some well water untreated can cause exceptionally stinky machines, especially if no or very little bleach is used during white washing..
usually if you use bleach in with your whites in normal amounts and leave the door open in between uses there should be very little stinky odor or mold growth.
the mold growing on the gasket is a sign of to little bleach or none being used, and/or a really damp environment for the unit to reside in.
they do make several cleaners designed just for stinky front loader washers..
they might help..
i've been using a front loader for 13 years, leave the door ajar between uses, and use bleach in every white load and have had no issues with stinky unless i or someone else doing wash forget and close the door for a couple days, then it gets stinky but goes away after white load with bleach and hot water..
hope this helps,
best of luck,

Stinky washer

you will always hear a bit of water in the tub after washing. buy a package of 3 tablets called AFRESH and follow the directions on the package. this product was designed specifically for the problem you are having. also, always leave the door open a little bit after washing. hope this helps.

Water will drain out

I had the same problem-you have to open up the bottom front panel and unhook the filter. (has two clips that you need to unhook before you remove it) (If you are a woman-find a guy to do this-I cursed on those clips for two days before I was able to get them back on!) Make sure to put a bowl or a towel underneath as all the sitting/stinky water in the filter that is stuck there will come out. I found a sock and pennies!
