My Duet washer stinks so much. The wash does not come out smelling good. It is clean but it doesn't smell good. I do use those cleaning tablets but it still stinks. It has over-suds many times where...


I have found that using a l/4scoop of oxi cleaner any brand will do along with my regular wash detergent helps keep the odor under control . I leave my door open to the washer when not in use. Occasionally I will clean under the gasket with a mild cleaner. Remember the front loaders use less water and therefor less detergent. Good luck.

The washer smells bad. We have taken it apart and cleaned between the tubs. The agitator turns in both directions

Don’t wait for the machine to jam to look into your filter.

You can use Affresh to clean your front loader. Deposits of soap and other such things can be stuck around the inside tub of your washer. Try this product, it works great on all front loaders. Use very hot water with the Affresh pellet with no clothes and run the machine through a cycle. Also helps with any stagnant water smells. Put the Affresh pellet inside the machine, not in the soap dispenser.

You can give me a ‘very helpful’ rating for the free help, can't you. Thanks.

Odor problems with whirlpool front load washer


Is the smell of mildew?

Run the washer on empty with beach and soap.

This is a common problem when the front door is left closed after use.

When the washer is not in use leave the front door cracked open. This will help in preventing mold & mildew.

Washer smells bad


Whirlpool and Tide make a cleaner that you put into the washer and run it through a cycle. Front loaders get a build-up that cannot be cleaned by hand. Make sure you are using a detergent that is marked "HE". Do not overfill the detergent or softener cups. I've heard that other used a lot of bleach in a wash cycle to clear out the smell. Bleach is bad to use if you're on a septic system, though.

Odor


What type of odor? If it is a bad smell, have you been running the bleach cycle to clean the washer as per manual directions? If not I would try this. Dan

Whirlpool now has cleaning tablets to take the smell out washers. They say they are for HE front load machine but it works on all machines. They are called affresh washer tablets. Just buy some and put all three tablets in the tub with hot water and let the washer go through a cycle with just the tablet(no clothes). By putting all three in the washer at one time it will kill the smell. For later use the package is a three month supply. They cost under 10 dollars.
