Question about Whirlpool Duet GHW9150P Front Load Washer
I also have the rotten egg smell for the last 6 months. The plumber told me it was a frozen air vent on my roof. Snow has melted and washer still stinks. No need to worry. Now washer is leaking slowly.
Checked the internet today about the rotten smell and to my amazement there were hundreds of people with the same complaints.
Cleaned mold from rubber in door (just read about that today). Cleaned it with bleach, vinegar, etc... still stinks. I almost gagged! How disgusting!!!
New home built in October 2006 and purchased duet whirlpool washer and dryer at this time.
I have a 2 year old daughter who for the last 6 months has had continual unexplained fevers and colds, flu's, etc.... (could totally not be related, but it's bizarre how these two seem to be closely related) Also, we wake up with a sore throat every morning. I am not sure if it has to do with the mold that I am washing my families clothes in or not, but as of today, that washing machine is not going to be washing my dirty laundry. If anyone else has similar complaints, please let me know. I actually have tests booked for my daughter on Tuesday to see what the issues may be with her health. THANKS FOR YOUR TIME. I would appreciate any response on the health issues.
I had the same problem and my repair man showed me how to remove the problem. I also had my cousin do the same and it resolved her smell too. I am not sure of the names of the parts but I can try to guide you on how to empty the water that is causing this problem.
Under the door is a panel that you have to remove. Inside is a the machine is a white plastic part that you have to remove the screws and pull out towards you a little ways. Turn this sideways and dump out that water into a bucket. Also check for things that may have gotten into that part of the washer like pennies, etc and remove them. Be prepared this water is very, very stinky. I have to do this every 6 mths or so, as soon as I notice the smell I dump out that water and the problem is gone.
