Front loaders are known for building up mold and the smell.
It’s caused by using liquid detergent which is made from animal fat. Use powder. And use the minimum amount.
It’s caused by using fabric softener. Dilute it 50/50 with water.
It’s caused by the water remaining in the tub between washes. Leave the door open to allow it to dry. .
Pull the rubber door seal back and clean the mold off .
Affresh is recommended by some manufacturers. You run it through a wash cycle with it.

My car gets super humid inside and water drips over the dashboard. why is that?


Check your carpets, I bet you have a leak. If the passenger floor is wet and smells like antifreeze you probably have a leak in your heater core. If it is wet other places and just smells like musty water I would look for a leak in that vicinity (windshield, back window, door seal)

Car smells musty needto know where drain plug is located


the drain plugs are located under the floor mats in the floor pan . If you look from underneath you will see the round plugs .If the carpets have been wet that bad then you will never get rid of the musty ( fungus) smell . consider new floor mats

Nasty molding musty smell...started iout of the blue. It is now early spring have not used A/C yet. It is making me sick


Musty smell comes from three possible situations.
First is simply a spilled liquid on the carpet. A thorough carpet cleaning will get this.
Second, water entering the body of the car. (IE: leaking door seals , window seals, or the hardest to find... coming in under the carpet from the floor pan) Barring leaks from the seals and spills, The floor pan has drain holes and rubber plugs that may dry out and allow water from below the car to enter.
Third, Your A/C unit is developing this condensation in the Air flow Box (complicated air flow box under dash holding your heater core and A/C core) This is a common problem, but requires a de-mold solution best applied by a Pro. You can buy over the counter solutions (sprays) and then make sure you run the heater after each A/C run. That works for many as it dries out the condensation the A/C produces.

Hope this helps.

The heater has a musty smell,I suspect i need to


It sounds to me if you are having a "musty smell" then you might have a problem with your condensation drain line for you a/c system or a small leak on your heater core. If it is plugged then water will collect in the vent system causing a musty smell from the water not draining and if there is a small leak on the heater core then coolant can collect in the vent system. I would run the a/c on a warm day and look for water draining from the vehicle around where the dash is located to check the drain line. As far as your air cabin filter most are located behind the glove box. You usually need to remove the glove box to get to the filter.

Leaking from bottom of front door Duet GHW9250MW0


Is this a Maytag front loader? I used to work for Sears as a repair man and these door boots had a lot of problems with draining. The best thing to do is to replace the front door boot. That is that big black rubber piece that goes around the tub. If you pull it back and look in it you will probably find some mold. That is where all that water is sitting. You can wipe it out with a rag and try running some white vinegar through the machine but that is just a temp fix. They have a new door boot that will fix this problem. The old ones they started recalling due to this exact problem. It sucks and I know how bad the smell is that you are talking about. Give the manufacturer a call and find out about a new boot for it. It will fix your problem. It is a pain though to install, you may want to have a repair man come out and do the job once you get the part. Let me know if you have any other questions. Good luck.

Leaking from the front of washer and moldy odor.


you need to replace the front boot what a pain you may need a tech to do this also you need to keep door open and wipe the boot with a towel after each use this is a common problem with front loaders.I do warranty work and run across this problem alot
before you replace boot turn on washer with nothing in it and let it cycle if you see suds in water you are using to much soap and this will cause the machine to over fill check this first
