Bad Smell We have a had a bad smell in our frig for the last couple months. We cleaned it with bleach and after a couple days the smell would come back. We have cleaned the frig many times since then and have not been able to get it out. I have been told since we have had a lose of power and the frig sat so long that the smell will not go way and we will have to get a new one. Does anyone have remedies. Cleaning methods Used: Bleach, Bleach Wipes, Vinegar, Potatoes & Salt, Lemon.

You might ry removeing hte rear panel of freezer. gain access to the evapotator area, thats where the fan thatcirculates air is as well, if the smells stillback there washing the inside wont do anything. once fully exposed i would saturate area with an odor nuetralizer . I use odo-ban. and be sure to pour asolution of baking soda and water downt the drain assy (under the evaperator) that will allow the baking soda to reamin in the lower drip tray long after teh eater evaporates. once refrig gets vcold again the smells generrally disapate anyway

My Whirlpool Estate Top Load washing machine is less than a year old. The last few months it has begun to smell really bad between washings. I leave the lid up but that doesn't help. The clothes don't...


Chances are there is mold forming in the outer tub, put two cups of bleach in the tub, set the water level at highest setting and run it in heavy wash mode. Do not add any laundry, that should help kill the mold that is causing the smell.

I have the same problem with my Kenmore refridgerator


To completely clean a frig of bad smells you will need to remove the back cover of frig and freezer compartment to access all areas. I operated a used appliance store for years and had all manner of stinky refrigerators to deal with so what we did was take out all panels and clean out with bleach and water solution. This took care of most odors. Hope this helps.

Washer smells bad


Whirlpool and Tide make a cleaner that you put into the washer and run it through a cycle. Front loaders get a build-up that cannot be cleaned by hand. Make sure you are using a detergent that is marked "HE". Do not overfill the detergent or softener cups. I've heard that other used a lot of bleach in a wash cycle to clear out the smell. Bleach is bad to use if you're on a septic system, though.

Bad smell old food in unpluged refridge


The smell has permeated the plastic, set a fresh box of baking soda in the fridge. Give it a few days and clean it with awesome or murphys oil soap. You can also use comet cleanser but if to much rubbing will scratch the plastic.

A really bad smell coming from the fridge


I had a similar problem with an unbearable smell, not inside, but outside the refregeration compartment. it was from the defrosted liquid that gets stored in a small open tank at the bottom on the rear side of the fridge. over time , particles settle along with water and gives a rooten smell, cleaning this tank solved it.

Hope this helps,

this is caused by a build up of old detergent and limescale.there are some industrial strength descalers around.wpro descaler is one.add the sachet to the drum with no wash load.pour in a kettle of hot water(not boiling)and leave for thirty minutes.then put washing machine on a 60 degree cycle and allow to run right through.you will need to repeat approximately every three months
