We noticed this as well, and began using a minute amount of bleach, even with the colored towels. It takes care of the smell and takes many, many washes to notice color fading.

I'm told that soap residue just outside the perforated drum attracts mold, right where you can't clean it. The best thing to do is run through a no-clothes cycle with just bleach once a week. That keeps it to a minimum as well.

Odor problems with whirlpool front load washer


Is the smell of mildew?

Run the washer on empty with beach and soap.

This is a common problem when the front door is left closed after use.

When the washer is not in use leave the front door cracked open. This will help in preventing mold & mildew.

Moldy smelling clothes


First, clean your washer with one of the front load washer cleaners on the market. (Affresh, washer magic, smellywasher cleaner, whirlaway hot tub cleaner, or Tide front load washer cleaner) Use the longest, hottest cycle your washer has, with no clothes.
Second, rewash the smelly clothes with the heavy wash cycle and a second rinse option, using no soap or fabric softener. This will remove the soap and/or fabric softener build up in the clothes which is causing the smell. Third, begin using one to no more than two tablespoons of HE soap per load, and not more than 1 teaspoon full of fabric softener if you use it. This is because top load washers used up to 45 gallons of water per load, and your front load machine is only using about 12 gallons total. If you are washing a load of bath towels (which were only used to dry off your clean body, not wipe up the floor or something like that) they are not really dirty,...... for washing "clean" towels, don't use any soap, and of course never use fabric softener on towels.

Clothes and towels don't smell fresh after washing


If you are sure that the pump is not blocked then try running the machine on a quick wash on its own with a little bleach in the drawer.

Water seems to be left in bottom of washer


This is a Maytagism for this style of washer.
Quick solution... take a terry towel and wipe out the standing water in the front door seal area and when you're done, toss the towel into the wash load.
Also make the loads a little smaller...it will keep the smell from reoccuring as much.

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.

The washer smells


I Talked with a retail appliance sale's person about two weeks ago because I had the same problem. Buy a can of country time lemonaide and put three scoops into the drum and run it through a regular wash cycle. This removes the odor. Also around the rubber door seal you can pull the rubber back from the drum side and wipe around the seal with lemon juice due to water and detergent being trapped in the seal. Once every month should do the job. It works for me.
