My Wash smells musty


In most Owner's Guides for front load machines, manufacturer's will advise to keep the door open after almost every cycle to help evaporate the water in the unit. Also to clean the rubber door seal with bleach water. To get rid of the smell there are solutions on the market that you can throw into the tub when you are not washing clothes and run a hot cycle. You can also use bleach, white vinegar and lime juice as an alternative. Then run a hot cycle. Do this about every 2 weeks, and keep your door cracked.

Odor after washing clothes


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. .

You have a build up of undesolved soaps in the system. Do 2 hot washes twice a day for maybe 3 days without washing in and no soap. Old soap needs to be desolved and drained away. See if there is a difference. Note, Put only 1/2 of the soap in and work from there.

Sour clothes smell from washer


Until you can find the filter (I'll investiate!) I suggest running it on hot hottest wash you can (empty) with just bleach. That at least should kill the bacteria that are causing the smell

Mildew smell on clothes


I have the same machines. Try using an old towel and detergent solution( use rubber gloves) and thouroughly clean the door seal. It can be just full of old lint, dirt, etc. in the grooves. Also try some oxyclean in your next load. That will help get rid of the odor also. These washers stay warm quite a long time and clothing will mildew fast in warm weather, but you probably already know that.
