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

I have exactly the same problem!


Try using the tub clean cycle and use a good dose of bleach or vinegear. Here is how to run the tub clean cycle.

To start the TUB CLEAN cycle:
1. Remove any clothing or items from the washer and close the door.
2. Open the dispenser drawer and add liquid chlorine bleach to the bleach compartment.
NOTE: Do not add any detergent to the detergent compartments. Excessive suds may be produced and leak
from the washer.
3. Close the dispenser drawer slowly.
4. Power On and then press the Extra Rinse button for 3 seconds. (Prewash option will be selected.)
5. Press the Start/Pause button to start.
6. After the cycle is complete, leave the door open to dry around the washer door opening, door seal and
door glass.

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!

Moldy smell in front load kenmore washer


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.

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.
