Run a wash cycle with only some bleach in it. That works for us everytime ours gets a bit stinky... Good luck!

use a whole bottle of just straight bleach in machine and a cup of cascade dish washing liquid dont put clothes with it run threw a complete cycle do this twice then run load of whites aftwards just whites so you dont bleach clothes
this will kill the soap build up mold
fabric softner is the worst for creating smells try to avoid using fabric softner

Have you tried the clean cycle with bleach only? Commercial additive cleaners are also available at stores. These machines do not use enough water to throughly clean out the soap & crud each cycle. Also leave the door wide open in-between loads to dry out the gaskets.

Smelly washing machine


Hi Haydn.
One of the main reasons for smelly machines is because the door is left closed and mould is growing in the drum and door seal.
Using some chlorine bleach will help. Put some in the drum and do a 'Rinse & spin'.
Leaving the door slightly ajar will allow the drum to dry and it will also allow the rubber seal to relax, thus maintaining a good contact with the glass when in use.
Once it's established mould can be difficult to get rid of entirely.
Good luck.

Smelly front loader washing machine. Clothes come out smelly too. How did I fix the problem???


You may have to do this 2 times and you will never find this in any manual. Use 1/4 cup "Powdered" Dishwashing soap and 1 cup of bleach in an empty tub cycle. Run a load of older dark clothes or non flammable rags FIRST after doing this the first time. If they come out with streaks run the cycle of 1/4 cup Powdered dishwashing soap and 1 cup bleach again. Same routine after 2nd cleaning cycle... dark clothes check for anything out of the ordinary. You should not have to do it a 3rd time unless your machine is really gunked up. Hopefully your using HE type soaps in your front loader. Non HE laundry soaps will cause the smelly machine also.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Bad smell inside drum and when draining also makes laundry smell


Recommend running it through empty (and without soap) on a long, hot wash cycle a couple of times.

Modern cool cycles don't always wash away all the detergent, and the machine fills up with smelly grey sludge after a while.
