Tip

Eliminate washer Odor


To clean washer add 1 cup of bleach while washer is being filled with hot water and run entire small cycle. DO NOT add clothes. This will help to eliminate odors and any stuck on dirt/ grime on the sides of the drum before washing clothes. I'm not an expert, just an experienced clothes washer for over 30 yrs. ,

Washer depositing oily stains on clothing HELP


Best way is the old fashioned way. Purchase some soda chrystals and pop them in ur drw. The same amount as you would normally use in detergent powder. Then put the washer on the hottest setting and wash the machine out. Do not put any clothes in the washer at the same time though. This will clean the washer it may take a couple of attempts to clean but doing this once a month will keep on top of it.

Hope this helps

The washer emits a foul odor when washer first


You have the beginning of a detergent and/or softener residue buildup on the inside of the plastic outer drum of your clothes washing machine. Mold and bacteria need a moist, dark environment and a food source to grow. This residue is the food source. This can be a major health concern. See: http://www.cbsnews.com/video/watch/?id=5408971n

We can't change the environment of the washer but we can lessen the "food source" by reducing detergent and fabric softener use.
Do an internet search on "Smelly Washer Reviews" to see what you can do about the problem of mold odor in your washer, towels and clothing.
After your washer odor is gone you'll need to change washing habits so mold and bacteria don't return. Go to the blog page at smellywasher.com to read the featured posts on the left side of the page on the cause of the problem and what to do for extreme cases of washer mold odor.

Starting to leave brown oily like stain on clothes


The first place that I'd check would be the small metal screens inside the openings on the water inlet valve. They can get really rusted, epecially in areas with hard water, so I would recommend removing the water supply hoses and take a gander at the screens. They can sometimes release the iron oxide into the wash water and cause brown stains or blotches on clothing. Hope this helped and best wishes.

Duet washer has a strong odor when draining


you might be getting "sewer gases" from your drain, but most likely your washer is the cause of the odors.
does it also smell musty when you get your clothes out?
whirlpool makes a product called "affresh" that is specially designed to clean out the residues from a front load washer.
you can find them at sears or lowes and the come in a package of 3 tablets. run a tablet on the clean cycle or on whitest whites or the longest cycle you can choose, use hot water and a second rinse option.
also to prevent this odor in the future make sure you are using only HE type soap and dont use too much. the least amount should do well to clean any clothes.

The clothes smell if left in the washer wet overnight


Wet clothes should not be left in the washer over night as mold will develop and cause a moldy odor. You could run the load through a rinse cycle with fabric softener or baking soda to get rid of the odors.

Kenmore Washer Odor


Meoser,
I've been selling the only available all natural washing machine and towel mold and mildew remover online at smellywasher.com since 2006.
It's now also available at Ace, Tru Value, Hardware Hank and Do It Best hardware stores. One bottle provides 24 treatments and guarantees to remove mold, mildew, or any odor from your washer. After the washer is cleaned it also safely and easily gets rid of the mildew smell from any towel or clothing that the odor has transferred to.
The dark, moist environment of your clothes washer is the perfect place for mold and bacteria to grow. See: http://www.cbsnews.com/video/watch/?id=5408971n
We can't change that environment but we can stop the food source for them to grow buy reducing the amount of detergent used and stopping fabric softener use. Go to the blog page at smellywasher.com to read advice on the cause of and cure for washing machine and towel odor.
