Maytag had a big problem with the rubber boot in the front of the washer.They redesigned it to drain better so water would not remain in the bottom and get moldy smelling.Open the door and look down in the boot with a flashlight.Make sure if there are drain holes in the bottom that they are clear and not clogged with soape or lint.Put a couple of old towels in the machine and a little soap and twice as much clorine bleach as normal and run a cycle.It should help.It is also good to leave the door opened between washes if possible.

SOURCE: smelly clothes and machine!

Do you wash whites separately or with bleach? Sometimes changing up the loads to whites with bleach would kill the germs.

Smelly clothes after washing


yes musty is actually cooked soap
from the dryer
take a clean just washed towel and put it in the washer alone with no soap
turn on the machine and watch what happens you will see the suds start to form
with this unit, if your using too much soap it will be spun into the cloths and then cooked in the dryer
do one towel load without soap then cut you soap usage way back
anything more than a tablespoon is way to much

remember you bought this unit to save water

1/6 the water 1/6 the soap
and he should be less

Towels smell oily and moldy--really stink


Don't use fabric softener. I had the same problem and read somewhere to stop using the fabric softeners. I don't know why but after about two cycles (they smelled really bad) it worked! I always used fabric softeners with out a problem but one day I just started getting REALLY smelly towels. I always take my wet wash out as soon as the cycle ends and dry it completely so I was surprised when they smalled so bad. Give it a try.

Stinky clothes


The big door seal is probably the problem. Put on gloves and using a solution of Laundry detregent and hot water and rags, carefully wipe clean all the folds of the seal. It will be icky. Next run a cycle with some detergent and oxyclean or bleach if you have it.

Especially during warm weather, damp clothing left in a front loader mildew slightly very quickly- you can't really see much but you can smell it! So get the clothes in to the dryer immediately. You'll want to relaunder the smelly clothing after you have cleaned the washer.

Good luck to you and Thank You using FiX YA!
