There may be something in the sump to large to get chopped up that may need cleaned out. Below is a link to clean out procedures for your model.

The alternative to taking it apart is buy a product called Affresh for dishwashers, there is a green package for clothes washers and a yellow package for dishwashers. It works well to clean out the machine and odors left behind. It is typically available where you buy detergent in the same area.

Musty smell


The "MAX" line indicates how much liquid must be in the blue dispenser cup before it DISPENSES from the bottom of the cup.
This is a very, very frustrating mistake that gives owners much grief.
After three months of incorrect type of detergent or incorrect amount of the correct detergent used--musty odor begins to occur.

After more than two years--a significant amount of soap ****/curd has accumulated in the washer. Odor-causing bacteria flourishes on this build-up.
It is imperative to remove this slimy residue. Tide sells a product called
"TIDE WASHING MACHINE CLEANER" which is very effective.

BAD ODOR WHEN TURN ON A/C OR HEATER


Dead field mouse or cat? Usually caused by build of smoking and other odors that stick to the condensation created by the a/c and eventually becomes kind of a permanent smell in the vents.

I have a musty odor after my clothes are washed. What's the problem. I clean my machine monthly with bleach.


I use 20 mule team borax and leave the door open when not in use and have no more musty smell in washer or clothes.

MY FRONT LOAD WASHER STINKS! THERE IS A MUSTY ODOR COMING FROM INSIDE.


what kind of washer?
all front load washers get this issue
the way to get rid of the smell is by doing an acid wash to your machine
set the washer to the highest temp setting (sanitize would be best)
mix in 1/2 to 2/3 cup of javex or white vinigar, either one will do it
run your washer through the longest cycle possible with no clothes in it
may need to be done more than once. and up to once a month

the smell is caused by leftover detergent and leftover fabric softner gathering on the interior shell and in the rubber boot at the door.
front load washers do not require much detergent at all, and even less fabric softner.
be careful on how much of these you are using, more is not better
this will help prevent the odor from comming back
as well when laundry is not being done, the front door should be left open a bit to allow air movement in the washer.
hope this helps

Bad Musty Moldy Odor in Washer


Run a wash on the highest temperature, and add some vinegar into it. May do this more than one time. Be strict to wash on the higest temp some times in the month.

Good Luck

Musty odor


Washer tub is probably very dirty from excess soap suds.  These washers have no way of cleaning rinsing themselves off so they will have to be disassembled and cleaned out to remove the odor.  That's about a 2 to 3 hour job.  Be sure to replace the rubber seal and the shaft seal to prevent leaks.

Odor when starting cycle


Check your water softener(If so equipped). This can cause foul odors in the water supply if not properly balanced or maintained. Good luck!
