When i wash it smells like rooting eggs i tryed bleach and the tablets but smells up the hole house what wrong its a lg tromm wm-2487hwm steam washer


I had the same problem. You must take out your clothes immediately and leave the door open after every wash to let the inside of the washer completely dry. I believe I read to run a cycle of bleach water and wipe down the inside of the door and interior with bleach/water mixture. Then let it dry. You then can start washing your clothes again, but you must be diligent about leaving the door open to air out between washings.Hope this works for you. I almost sold my machines shortly after I bought them because my clothes were always smelly after washing. Leaving the door open has worked for us.

1. leaks from bottom. 2 smells like mold. Help, Cheryl


YOU WILL HAVE TO REMOVE 4 SCREWS LOCATED INSIDE THE DOOR WAY. 2 HOLD THE DOOR HINGES AND THE OTHER TWO HOLD THE FRONT PANEL. THE DOOR CAN REMAIN ON AND IT SHOULD STAY PUT ONCE SCREWS ARE OUT. THEN REMOVE THE FRONT PANEL, RUN A CYCLE AND SEE IFF YOU CANT LOCATE THE LEAK.
IT IS MOST LIKELY LEAKING FROM THE BIG GREY DOOR GASKET

Mold & Smelly in Washer


Wash on hottest and longest cycle with regular laundry soap and a bottle of vinegar. After cycle, wash again with soap on hottest/longest cycle. This will clean your washer like new.

Try getting the new whirlpool affresh washer tablets. They clean the mold and are supposed to make everything in the washer smell better and keep it clean. They are only around 10 bucks and is worth a shot to clean your smelly drain.

Black mold


You can try a product called Affresh it's supposed to work quite well to maintian a clean washer. If you already have a smelly washer you should run a few cycles using Affresh. You also want to make sure you're using HE soap (it will have an HE oval shaped logo on the detergent bottle). If you're not soap residue will build up in the machine and start to smell.

Mold & Smelly in Washer



Thanks for your suggestion about looking in the lip of the seal. I found one of my three year old granddaughters socks. Also, the seal for very dirty so I mixed a 50% solution and 50% solution of chlorox and used an old towel rag to wipe and wash throughly around the lip seal.

I noted that the aluminum ring inside the washer had also accumulated a lot of dirt. With one hand and fingers I held the wet cholorx towel inside the ring and with the other hand spun the tub around several turns until I had removed all the dirt and grime.

It did have a moldy smell. I'll let you know if this fixed the problem.

Smells of mildew and so do clothes


Hi! I have Kenmore Elite 4t and had this same problem: Musty, Moldy smell in washer and on clothes. The Sears Technician suggested that I use a half a cup of Clorox Liquid Bleach and put it in the tub (not the dispenser). NO CLOTHES! Use the longest hottest setting and when it's done clean the inside (underneath rubber tire thingie) and the undernath part of the door with a papertowel. And to always leave the door open. I did what he said with the bleach and it worked. I didn't want to leave the door open because I have 2 cats & was afraid that they would want to go in it, but ended up repeating the bleach thing again because a few days later the horrible smell was back. I leave the door open all the time now and the cats never go in it. They've watched laundry spin around, so I guess they're smart enough to not want to go in it. I have not had this problem again since I always leave the door open and I did this over a month ago. I hope this helps!

Kenmore washer smells/mildew on rubber


The smell problem is actually because of the softener....its nassssty stuff it coats the interior of the washer and forms a grease like residue. I would use Washer Magic (available at all appliance parts retailers) (only half the container in front loaders) and a hot wash. Also keep spraying the boot with bleach and water soluiton every few hours it will dissappear after awhile. please rate my help
