Hello

Check the drain tube,it needs to be 30 inches above the floor.

Also if the drain tube from the washer is too far into the drain the washer will not drain completly.The drain tube should be 1 inch into the wall drain.

Also check for kinks or obstructions in the washer drain tube.

Front loaders are known for building up mold and the smell.
It’s caused by using liquid detergent which is made from animal fat. Use powder. And use the minimum amount.
It’s caused by using fabric softener. Dilute it 50/50 with water.
It’s caused by the water remaining in the tub between washes. Leave the door open to allow it to dry. .
Pull the rubber door seal back and clean the mold off .
Affresh is recommended by some manufacturers. You run it through a wash cycle with it.

Foul water smell coming from washer after using machine.


Check the hoses to make sure there are no leaks or standing water behind. Try running a cycle or two of vinegar water and baking soda water to kill any mildew that might be in the tub.
New washers often give off an odor described as a burning match or electrical smell. This is normal and is caused by the "wearing in" of clutch shoes and the heating of new paint on the motor windings.
Older washer odors are usually caused by leaving the washer lid closed when not in use. This does not allow air to circulate and dry out the moisture remaining in tub area. The air and moisture mixture becomes stagnant and creates an odor. When washer is not in use, leaving the lid up/open for air circulation will help prevent odor.


To get rid of odors inside of washer follow the steps listed below:
  1. Fill the washer with hot water; set at regular speed & longest time.
  2. Add 3/4 cup of Calgon Clothes Detergent. (Baking soda can be substituted) .
  3. Allow washer to complete entire wash and rinse cycle.
  4. If odor lingers, repeat entire process.

My expensive lg washer makes my cloths smell


Water is staying in the drum because it does not have the ability to pump put all the water. The only fix to this is after every cycle, take the little drain hose located near the bottom of the unit where you have to remove the cover, and take out the plug and drain into a small trash can. You will get about 4 cups water out of the machine. If this water is left overnight, it starts to mildew and will be washed over your next load. It's a design flaw, but this is the only solution. And one other suggestion, after you are finished washing clothes for the day and after you've drained out the remaining water, leave the door open overnight for the moisture in the unit to dry out.

Musty smell in washer and clothes.water remains in rubber gasket


Two thing that you might try: Add two or three cups of bleach and have the machine run a cycle (with no clothes!!!). Second, always leave the door open after use to let it air out. Also, it wouldn't hurt to use straight bleach as a wipe to the entire rubber tub seal.

Front loader smells like stale cigarettes during cycle


Make sure that you are using high efficiency (he) detergent. Pour 2 cups of vinegar in the tub and fill the detergent tray with vinegar. Run it on the hottest, longest cycle. You can also use a Front load cleaner such as Afresh, made by Whirpool. I think that Tide makes one too. Vinegar is usually readily available. At the end of washing for the day, leave the door to the washer slightly open so that fresh air can get in and dry it out keeping moldy, milduey smell down. If it mildews, use a rag and bleach water to clean the boot seal. Hope this helps.
