I have this problem with my Siemens machine, it is due to mainly running low temp washes and bateria building up in the hoses etc. (more prevalent if the machine is connected directly to the sink and not on a stand pipe). I run a 90 degree cycle every 4 weeks with the machine empty except for two capfuls of baby sterilisng fluid (approx half a mug) I buy stores own as it is cheaper than miltons. The first time I did mine I ran the cycle twice to be sure it was cleared out. My machine is six years old and the first smelly signs were when it was about a year old, I run the maintenance wash religiously ever 4 weeks and run a machine descaler such as oust thru every 4-6 months. Hope this helps. Roni. (ps don't be tempted to use bleach as it foams up and can cause more problems!!)

For replacement parts - head on over to PartSelect.com or RepairClinic.com and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
I recommend both sites because ...


FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.

PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.


If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.


Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.

If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.

Disconnect from power. Make sure no clothes is in the washer and no water.Open bottom front panel. With bucket in hand remove filter lid and clean all smelly water and debries. Put everything back and try to start the wash again. That should do it. Good luck!!

My Whrilpool Duet keeps "eating socks", I have to take the cover off, unscrew the drain trap and pull out yucky, smelly socks!


Hi,

That is a common problem with the Whirpool duets. Small clothing articles, especially baby socks go through the drum lip to the drain pipe.

Best to buy a zip-up laundry bag and place all the small clothing items in there.

Best Regards
Ash

My Duet Washer has an extreme mold smell. I have


The mouldy smell.......what else?

try adding 2 or 2 cups of Sugar Soap Concentrate then fill the machine and leave it for 24 hrs.
Then put it through a wash cycle without any clothes.

If this fails to fix the problem you are looking at a complete strip down and clean out!

WHIRLPOOL DUET FRONTLOAD WASHER


I had similar problem, the front door seal can trap small items,socks,handtowels. I didnt figure this out for some months, each load of clothes had a foul, mildew smell, Check door seal for trapped clothes, run intermittent cycles with bleach only, no clothes, be sure to leave door open when not in use to air out , this will reduce smell.
