Question about Bosch WFMC 3200 Front Load Washer

2 Answers

Hey, Buddy! Another question ... I bought my Bosch second hand (two years old) and love it for the most part ... My question is why do I smell mildew when I open the washing machine? I always need to wash my clothes twice to get rid of the scent. Odd, right? Patti P.S. You are my first tech friend. V. exciting!

Well the mold is caused from the door being shut after you arte finished with the use of the machine. it traps the mouisture inside..To solve this use some bleach and water wipe it down around the door seal..then after each load just crack the door open this will allow air to dry out the inside and stop the mold

LG washing machine has AWFUL mildew smell


Same here. We bought ours January 2005. Love the machines and take great care of them, too. Then the smell in the washer which seemed to affect certain clothes, like thick sweat pants and t-shirts (they smelled really "sour"). After doing some searches I found on this site where someone had recommended using a product called Affresh. I figured I might as well try it since my other attempts failed. This really worked for me. I bought it at Home Depot for $7 for a pkg of 3. I used 3 tablets per their directions, as this was my first time using it (afterwards they recommend using only 1 tablet per month). I was totally amazed as the smell was gone. I hope it works for you, too!

Mildew smell


Try doing just a hot bleach water "load".  Also check underneath and around the machine to make sure it's not leaking.  If it did or is and you can see the mildew just spray it with bleach.
