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???

    We have the same problem with the 3200, I run a cycle through with bleach and no clothes and it seems to help some.

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.

Grey spots on our white clothes after wash


do you use affresh to clean your front loader? deposits of soap and other such things can be stuck around the inside tub of your washer. try this porduct out it works great on all front loaders use hot water with the affresh pellet with no clothes and run the machine through a cycle this also helps with any stagnant water smells also have you cleaned out your pump lately. * note remeber to put the pellet on the inside of the machine not in the soap dispenser

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.

Is there any detergent I should avoid using in my Bosch Nexxt 500 Series washer?


Any clothes-washer HE (low suds) soap will do. Just be aware that you only need a tablespoon of the soap, not the 3/4 cup that comes in the box!

Stinky clothes


The big door seal is probably the problem. Put on gloves and using a solution of Laundry detregent and hot water and rags, carefully wipe clean all the folds of the seal. It will be icky. Next run a cycle with some detergent and oxyclean or bleach if you have it.

Especially during warm weather, damp clothing left in a front loader mildew slightly very quickly- you can't really see much but you can smell it! So get the clothes in to the dryer immediately. You'll want to relaunder the smelly clothing after you have cleaned the washer.

Good luck to you and Thank You using FiX YA!

Stinky towels


Mildew odor in towels in almost invariably being transferred from the washing machine. The clothes washer must be cleaned first then clean the smelly towels and laundry. To compare washer cleaners watch this video of Affresh and Smelly Washer...
