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 clothes come out of the washer smelling fresh and clean. After drying in the dryer, they smell mildewy.


Check for lint buildup in the vent discharge hose/pipe and the inside of the dryer blower housing.
Heavy wet lint buildup will cause a moldy/mildewy smell that you describe.
Heavy lint build up will also increase the drying time, and it is a fire hazzard

We have a Hotpoint washer model VBSR2080WOWW purchased 2001. Problem is that clothes often don't smell fresh at end of cycle. There is a musty or mildewy odor or sometimes they have body odor. Problem is...


you have too much body fat built up in the hoses and main barrel what you need to do is run it with pure hot water and put a dish washer cleaner fluid in the wash this will destroy all residue that has built up in your washer that is rotting as it sits.

good luck

My clothes smell mildewy


Run an empty cycle with hot water, detergent, and a cup of baking soda. Leave the lid/door open after each wash session so that the interior will dry out.

Musty/Mildew smelling clothes...


lg has a known problem with smelly mildew cloths. If you call LG they will tell you its not there problem. Cheapest solution is to wash door gasket with some clorox and then betwen washes leave door open. On the washing supply shelves there is a product you put in the washing machine run a wash without cloths and it does the same thing except it costs $7.If you bought it a t Lowes go back and ***** to store manager my friend did exactly that and got the machinje replaced

Kenmore 464642 Front Load Washer is causing towels and clothes to smell mildewy


just start with cleaning out the pump and the pipes that connect it both to the drum and the outlet, check the outlet on the wall that it is clear, given the info you have this sounds like that the pump is not clearing all the water in time and filing up with some old water left in the machine,, clear out these pipes with care and you should be fine, check the pump pushes out the water with sufficient force work safe unplug when working on appliances, electric and water don't mix hope i have helped, if so rate me please
