We were so frustrated with the smell, so we googled smelly washer. First listing was for a product called "Smelly Washer". No other cleaners or bleach helped. This product worked like a charm! We just run a load with it every 2 months now. NO SMELL.

YOU WILL HAVE TO REMOVE 4 SCREWS LOCATED INSIDE THE DOOR WAY. 2 HOLD THE DOOR HINGES AND THE OTHER TWO HOLD THE FRONT PANEL. THE DOOR CAN REMAIN ON AND IT SHOULD STAY PUT ONCE SCREWS ARE OUT. THEN REMOVE THE FRONT PANEL, RUN A CYCLE AND SEE IFF YOU CANT LOCATE THE LEAK.
IT IS MOST LIKELY LEAKING FROM THE BIG GREY DOOR GASKET

How do you get rid of mold smell in washing machine


Hello friend, thanks for your post!

I understand that you have a mold smell developing inside of your Frigidaire washer. I would normally recommend using a clean wash cycle with either one cup of bleach or one pouch of Tide Washing Machine Cleaner. If you do not have a clean wash cycle on your washer you could also use hot water and a regular cycle with a cup of bleach to clean out your washer.

You should also check over your gasket to assure there is no mold buildup, if you do locate mold inside of your gasket you can use bleach to help get rid of any residue. I hope this information is helpful. -Matt

Not washing properly, smells like mold


I have a samsung WF306LAW/XAA and it also smells like mold. I found I had a small leak which turned into a large on over a long periond of time. The leak was in the guide water also known as the silver care kit. The bottom of the washer has foam wire and hose covers to soften the noise, they get wet and mildew. make sure you do't have a small leak and dry out the cavity.

Kenmore Elite Front Load Washing HE4 has started to leak. is there a a guide of how to disassemble, inspect, repair and re-assemble?


If you front loader is leaking, the following link can give you guidance on how to inspect the washer to determine where the source of the leak may be coming from:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r3576656-washer_leak__front_loader


Most commonly, the source of the leak comes from the door bellow (gray rubber seal). They do wear out with age and can develop small rips and tears. A routine inspection of the perimeter of the door seal can determine if you have any holes. If the seal is damaged, it must be replaced. The following link explains how:


http://www.fixya.com/support/r3574186-installing_a_door_bellow_on_a_front_load


Replacement parts (if required) can be purchased at any of the following web sites:

searspartsdirect.com
pcappliancerepair.com
appliancepartspros.com
repairclinic.com

Prices vary between sites, so shop and compare. The first three sites listed also have helpful exploded view parts illustrations to assist you with locating and properly identifying the parts you may need.

If you have any questions, or require additional assistance, please post back and let me know. I hope you find this information helpful.

My Audi has a bad smell when I turn on the air


could be an a/c leak, could be mold in the vents.....there are vent cleaning kits you can get at most auto parts stores....they consist of a spray that kills mold, however you do not want to use them if you dont know how to take the ductwork out of the dash as it may leak and destroy electrical components in the dash.

My older KA Ref Model KTRP20K & M is giving off a strong odor similar to iodine. Very strong in AM but can still smell it in PM. I've checked for spoilage and nothing there. Any thoughts? Is it time...


since it is working ok . i am wondering if you dont have mold growing in the drip pan ... condensation from inside the refrigerator goes down a small tube in the back bottom of the frig ... that tube goes to a pan under the refrigerator and normally the water just evaporates .. if there is a lot of condensate from the frig then the pan may stay wet long enough for mold to get established ... a large amount of condensate from the frig usually indicates a leaky seal around the door .. or a door that doesnt close completely .. you might want to clean everything under the frig including any fans, coils and that pan (unplug first) ... now this all assumes that the smell is coming from the outside not inside the refrigerator .. if the smell is inside then you may have to defrost and clean the evaporator (the coils inside the freezer (somtimes also in the refrigerator) ... there are some kinds of mold that actually grow in that cold environment .. some hot soapy water with a little bleach usually does the job .. or if you have one, a steam cleaner, those do great .. it allows you to get down in the little places and clean everything ... make sure the frig is at room temp first so plastic doesnt crack ..
the refrigerant r22 or r134a have very little smell so even if you had a leak it wouldnt smell strong .. a few refrigerators use ammonia and that would have a distinctive smell easily recognized if there was a leak .

Mold smell


The filter on your pump is probably clogged with lint and stuff. You have to remove the bottom front panel, 3 torx screws underneath. The panel will drop and come off. Drain off the excess water from the drain pipe you see. The white filter cover is right in front. Get yourself a good plastic bag to collect water. Unscrew the filter cover and twist the filter out. Clean out all the stuff and put it back in carefully. Check your pump too.

On some models the filter is located ‘inside’ the big hose from the bottom of the tub. This takes more time to clean.

Next run your washer with 2 cups of bleach, hot water. After it starts agitating stop the washer & let it remain for 2 hours. Then continue the wash.

Strange smell


Have you cleaned the evap coil? Most often smells come from the evap coil. A bleach type product used for cleaning will solve this problem. Thanks
