Odour We have been dealing with this unpleasant odour from the washer. What is it, and how do I clean it, and or is there a recall on the washer gasket or any part of the washer to prevent or eliminate this problem. After a bit of researching, I am not the only on who is dealing with this issue.

In the UK and Europe we have had front loader washing machines for many years. The problem of the smell could be resolved quite simply by NOT closing the door. If you leave the door ajar when not in use the hat damp air is allowed to escape and therefore does not create that mould.

Looks like there is water that is stuck in the machine witch means that it goes mouldy to stop it smelling do maintenance washes every 3 to 6 months put it on the hottest wash with washer cleaner hope this helped.

Producing an unpleasant smell or odor prefix mal


somewhat limited information, but clean out the fridge/freezer.. maybe a liquefying cucumber or worse, potato.. wipe everything down with baby sterilising fluid.

if the odour persists, get a tablespoon of bicarbonate of soda in a small plastic tub without a lid, and stick it in the back out of sight.. bicarb will soak up the odour quickly/overnight. a few drips of lemon juice into the bicarb, and some zest, will add a lemony essence to the interior.

Smelly washing machine and washed clothes


This is usually because of a bacteria build up on the machine. Suggested actions: Remove and thoroughly clean the soap tray. Remove the waste pipe from the drain pipe you have it poked into and ensure that all is clean and emptied. If your machine has a filter (Usually behind a 4 inch square door on the front towards the bottom of the machine if one is fitted - this depends on the machine and I'm sorry, I'm not familiar with your madel). Finally, take 2 or 3 DISHWASHER TABLETS put them in the machine's drum and wash at the highest temperature that your machine will allow. Modern biological washing powder uses bacteria to break down and "eat" stains. Bacteria creates unpleasant odours. Dish Washer tablets and powder is designed to kill bacteria. Hope this helps

Unpleasant smell inside


Here's what you do. I know it is going to sound funny but it always works. Wad up a bunch of news papers and place them in the frige along with a stick of dynamite (only kidding about the dynamite) along with a box of baking soda. The newspapers will remove the smell in a couple of days.

Hope this helps

Samsung Front Load washer has odour


IMPORTANT: Read thoroughly. DO NOT add detergent or other laundry products to this cycle.
1. Remove all items from the washer.
2. Open the dispenser drawer and 2/3 cup (160 mL) of liquid chlorine bleach to the bleach compartment. DO NOT use more than 2/3 cup (160mL) of bleach per cycle as this will lead to product damage.
3. Close the washer door and dispenser drawer.
4. Select the Clean Washer cycle or a full wash cotton 104 F wash (40 C). DO NOT use any higher temperature as this will cause unnecessary fumes
5. Press Start and allow cycle to complete.
6. If the bad odour persists, repeat the procedure 1 or 2 more times. This may be necessary if this is the first time you have run this cycle.
7. After the cycle is complete, leave the door open slightly to allow ventilation and drying of the washer interior.
8. Repeat the cleaning procedure monthly.
To maintain the washer freshness:
1. Use only HE High Efficiency detergent.
2. Leave the door open after each cycle to for better ventilation and drying of the washer interior.
3. Use warm / hot water in your machine unless the fabric you are washing requires cold.
4. Use the correct amount of fabric softener.
5. If your laundry room is damp, use a dehumidifier.
6. Clean the door seal of visible residue.
