SOURCE: Smell coming from inside washing machine. Not musty.

This is a fairly common problem that often arises when the majority of washes are done with cold water.

Do what is called a maintenance wash where you set the machine to run with hot water and maximum fill of water. Add one half cup of baking soda and let it run through it's entire cycle with absolutely no clothes in it.

After it completes its full cycle check for that bad odor. If it is fully gone wonderful. If it is half as bad do a second maintenance wash.

If the maintenance wash doesnt seem to help at alll get back to me and I will make another recommendation.

SOURCE: smell coming from insie washing machine

This is usually caused by mostly using low temperature washes. The detergent manufacurers don't tell you, but low temperatures don't kill the bacteria present on most clothes, so they breed and and multiply in nice warm moist washing mashines. The cure is to do a "maintenance wash" every so often, which is the hottest wash the machine can do, and this will kill the bacteria. Also adding washing soda to this wash will help to freshen it up.

How do you get rid of mold smell in washing machine


Hello friend, thanks for your post!

I understand that you have a mold smell developing inside of your Frigidaire washer. I would normally recommend using a clean wash cycle with either one cup of bleach or one pouch of Tide Washing Machine Cleaner. If you do not have a clean wash cycle on your washer you could also use hot water and a regular cycle with a cup of bleach to clean out your washer.

You should also check over your gasket to assure there is no mold buildup, if you do locate mold inside of your gasket you can use bleach to help get rid of any residue. I hope this information is helpful. -Matt

Bad smell in washing machine...clothes smell bad after wash


hi there is a build up of lime and old dirt in the inside of your drum the best thing to get rid of the smell is put a very small amount of bleach in the drum and put your machine on a very hot wash it will help in your hand book it will tell you to use your hot wash with a bit of powder and no cloths at leased once a month i dont know if you use your hottest wash most people dont these days because of the low temp powders, also the best product to use is lim away but you can only get it on usa bases or from the usa you might find someone on line that sells it that will get rid of all the lime thats been built up in your machine if you cant just use a bit of thick bleach hope this was helpful

Inside of washer smells bad!!


Your smell is inside the washer under the cabinet. You must take the cabinet apart and thoroughly clean it. You must have a small leak that has been going on for sometime now for the moister has mildewed. Lysol will kill the smell on this although it must be cleaned first of all

My Maytag Neptune washer #MAH550Bww Serial #88922156AJ has water coming out the front door and getting my laundry room floor wet. I have also noticed a musky smell in some of my clothes just after washing


You need part 12001772. The issue with the smell is a combo water, too much soap and too long of a cycle. 2 Tbl of soap and a lighter cycle is usually fine for these machines, plus to keep the soap drawer clean:) Here is a pick of what you need. See part 18
