There are some products out there that you can purchase from any Walmart or Grocery chain but what works real well is a mixture of concentrated lemon juice and water. You can make a permanent solution for this use by taking a spray bottle and filling wih 2/3 water and the rest lemon juice, (concentrated), and praying this around the boot and then wiping dry.

SOURCE: How to get rid moldy smell in LG Front loader washmachine?

There are several cleaners for front loading washers on the market, such as affresh, washer magic, smellywasher cleaner, whirlaway hot tub cleaner, and tide washer cleaner. Clean out the filter located behind the access door at the lower left front of the machine, then, if your model has a tub clean setting, use that with one of those cleaners, if not, use one of those cleaners with the longest, hottest cycle. If things were very bad, you may have to clean it twice. Now, after it is cleaned out,.....STOP USING SO MUCH SOAP ! Use only one tablespoon of HE laudry detergent per cycle, and only one teaspoon of fabric softener if you use that. (Note: Bath towels, used only to wipe off clean bodies, then tossed into the laundry are not dirty enough to require soap usage, and should never have softener used on them) The odors in your washer are caused by a build up of soap and fabric softeners on the inside of the washer's drum. Also, you may have a build up of soap or fabric softener on your clothes. Wash them again once with no soap or fab softener to rinse them out.

SOURCE: How to get rid moldy smell in LG Front loader washmachine?

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!!)

I have a 2009 Cadillac Escalade that I have just purchased, vents smell like maple syrup when the AC is not on Why???


Well it could be something the previous owner spilled in the vents, or sprayed into the vents to try to cover up a moldy smell.
You might try a detail shop to get rid of the smell.

The tube under the rubber is moldie and so is the the glass on the door and the face of the metal around the door. Why the smell so hard to get rid of. my whites are never white.


To get rid of mold which is causing the smell is to use bleach. You can also use a 100ml of bleach in the water to cleant the insiode of the screen as it also whitens your clothes. Use bleach regularly on the lass and rubber to prevent regrowth of mold

How do you get rid of the moldy misty smell from


Make sure the unit is draining properly outside. When it's running it should be draining. Then make sure the filter is clean. If you don't have the unit serviced you need to do that yourself. Unplug the unit so you can clean the coil fins behind the filter. You can use a household sprayer and some degreaser or simple green. After you completely spray the coils let the solution sit for a while. Then rinse thoroughly with sprayer. If it persists you will need a Tech to clean it.

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.
