Clothes just don't seem to smell clean

I have been using the Bosch 500 series washer and it seems that the clothes just don't smell clean especially towels. I have tried different detergent. Is this s common problem? Perhaps the water effeciency reduces cleanleness???

Mildew odor in the machine....can't get rid of it and makes clothes STINK!


If you have a smelly front loading clothes washing machine, toss in a Finish Geltabs (the ones that are all liquid) and run the machine on a hot wash cycle, medium to heavy load (to get more water in the tub) with no clothes in the machine. You don't need to use much of a spin cycle so set it on low. The washing machine will come clean and even the moldy spots on the rubber gaskets will disappear. A second treatment may be needed if the smell is not completely gone. We tried everything from vineger to bleach to baking soda to borax to commercially available odor removers from Whirlpool and Tide. Nothing worked until I hit on this idea. It's cheap, easy and can be done anytime your machine needs a refreshing. I used the orange Geltabs but any fragrance would be fine. Keep the door on your washer open a bit when possible to air out to help preclude those nasty smells.

Error code 13 on my 5oo plus series washer, it will not coplete the load or unlock the door, im afraid the clothes are going to start smelling


On the small round disk at the bottom right...insert a small round pointed object into the hole and push gently, while do this rotate the disk clockwise. This will allow you to remove the disk. Look inside and there will be a slender plastic rod next to the drain clean out. Pull down gently to manually unlock the washer door. Unfortunately that will unlock the door but probably not fix what caused the issue in the first place.
