Question about GE WSXH208A Front Load Washer
Three year old front load washer has moldy smell. It was fine for two yearsbut now I must keep the door open and run bleach through every two or three weeks. We have checked and cleaned all hoses and the tub and gasket help!!!! We have a 2 year old GE front loader. About 3 months ago we started smelling a musty, moldy smell. We have to leave the door open to air it out. So relieved to know we aren't the only ones.
I had the same problem. Have you cleaned the filter under the front panel? Simply remove the three screws holding the panel below the door and remove the 2" white screwcap. Be sure to have a basin handy to catch the water. (possibly a couple of gallons if the stainer is really clogged) I suspect you'll find several moldy items that are causing the odor. Good luck.

Bleach, baking soda or vinegar may take care of it. If none of these work there is a cleaner sold at www.smellywasher.com
that I haven't found a negative post on. I haven't used it but saw it on KTRK Houston abc news the other night. It's $16.00 but they say it's a year's supply. It also claims to remove towel mildew smell. Good luck.

You may find that running a baking soda solution is more effective for this. comes from water that's been treated up stream of your home,
