Now I don't know if this will work for you but you can give it a try. I have had good luck with those Cascade packets that you can use in your dishwasher. Try throwing one packet in the washer on the clean washer cycle. Also another step is to leave the door open completely on the washer for at least a week and not to use it so all the water will completely dry out. The bacteria will no longer have a place to grow if you let all the water dry up in the machine. Good luck and have a nice holiday.

Smell of mildew on our towel and sheets


This is probably happening because the clothing is being left damp in the washer. When it is warm during the summertime mildew will grow very quickly in the towels. On front load washers you need to leave the door open when not in use to keep mildew from growing. You should wipe out behind the inner seal any moisture when you are done doing laundry. This is an issue for most front loaders. Some front loaders have a clean washer cycle that uses bleach to sanitize the drum. Other washers like the Samsung have a block of silver and release silver ions in the wash to sanitze the clothes.

Musty smell on towels


I had this problem last year. I was not using HE detergent. The other detergent was causing soap scum to build up in the drain hoses. After they were cleaned (it took more than one time taking it apart and cleaning), and we started using HE detergent, it worked fien with no odor.

Towels are heavy so it likely became unbalanced and triggered a shutdown.
press the signal button for 10 sec
