Filter is located at bottom front right of washer behind removeable trim.
Lever trim off, and remove filter by unscrewing anti-clockwise.

Washing machine smells like mould


The odor may come from several sources. Mildew may be around the door's gasket. That might be cleaned with a rag and a half bleach/half water concoction. The soap dispenser tray may have had stagnant water present. Other hose areas may be growing mildew.

Here are some things you can try:

1) Run dishwasher powder detergent once a month through the washer. Or...
2) Run 3 quarters cup of bleach through an empty hot wash cycle once a month.
3) Yes, baking soda, ye olde oder absorber, can also be tried.
3) Clean the trap (where coins, etc. may be captured). Clean the filter.

Some High Efficiency machines have "high efficiency, HE detergents recommended for them. Does the drum have a soapy coating? If so, it will likely require at least an empty hot water cycle to get rid of the excess soap which may be responsible for the smell.

Naturally, if you are using bleach to clean the the washer door, you want to clean the bleach off too before you ruin some clothes by contact.

Hope this helps.

It smells stagnant,opened the flap on the front and smelly water came out,but how do I clean the filter?


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France @ 17:48 Sunday afternoon.

Sorry but I do not know your specific machine but most are very similar!
I will have to assume that the flap to which you refer has the filter behind it because you say- 'opened the flap on the front and smelly water came out'. You should be able to pull the filter out of its 'container' even if it takes some gentle persuasion and patience!.
Also are you absolutely sure that it IS the water itself smelling? If your washer water drain pipe shares a sink's plumbing, it could be that the smell is coming from the sink's u-tube and through the empty pipework. I have had a few problem tickets like that! Plus- normally waste washing water a) smells of the washing powder and /or conditioner and b) would be mostly flushed away.
This is not to say that it isn't the filter with something fairly obnoxious stuck in it!
Good luck,

Bosch washing machine not emptying


There should be a filter located at bottom right front of washer.
To clean it ,unscrew anti-clockwise, remove and clean it.
If you cannot see the filter, it may be behind a removeable plastic cover at bottom of washer..
Hope this helps you

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 in ge front load washer


Try two things: Add several cups bleach to the tub and run it a complete cycle. When not in use, leave the door open so it will air out.

Moldy smell


Turn it off, unplug it. Remove filter and check if filter and/or filter and pump housing are clogged with something "smelly". When you're at it check the drain pipe for too.

Bad Smell


Make a boil wash (with no clothes and detergents) put in the powder's drawer a cup of bicarbonate of soda. It should clean the machine and remove out the bad smell. Good luck!
