Make sure that your outlet pipe is at least 24 inches of the floor so you will not get dish water running back in the machine and give machine a quick wash using a good bleach hope this is usefull

My machine smells damp and musty in between uses. it smells like there is stale smelly water in it, it`s so bad that we can`t leave the door open. This is only a recent thing, we have pulled it out and...


Hi

The smell usually comes when the washer is unable to drain water completely, you can run your washer at its hottest temperature setting with 1 cup of vinegar inside the unit. After this take off the bottom front panel and clean it completely, also clean the drain hose and drain pump filter, the smell should disappear after doing all this. Hope this helps...please post back for further assistance.

Machine smells 'stale' water which clears up if we do a hot wash or put vinegar though machine but comes back quickly


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

Unfortunately you do not say which particular make and model it is and different manufacturers use different codes for different problems!

So I am guessing but I would suggest as a first step that you clean the drain motor lint tray/filter. So many 'faults' are caused by blocked filters. The drain motor is unable to drain all of the water in the time allotted leaving the residue still in the machine.

If you are unsure where the filter is, it is normally behind the front lower (kick) panel and held in by a round cover/knob.

REMOVE POWER AND ENSURE YOU HAVE A WATER RECEPTACLE/RAGS TO SOAK UP ANY WATER!

It's surprising what people have found in theirs! It is always worthwhile checking it on a regular basis.

Hope this is the cause of the 'smelly' problem and good luck!

Our clothes are coming pout smelling bad after a wash. The machine is old. We do not know if there is a filter to clean out? Not even adding SHOUT will help the smell.


You should put one half cup of bleach in the washer and let it fill. After it sets for an hour run it thru a cycle refil and do it again. All washers have water left in them even when they empty so it sounds like you had stale water in it and possibly mold bleach will take care of it and a few cycles.

I have a Creda 1200 washing machine, I am unable to locate the fluff filter. Does my machine have one? if not, what happens to dogs hairs etc? will they damage my machine?


The filter is at the rear of the washer.
Remove the lower rear cover of washer.
Remove the large black hose fastened to bottom of drum.
Clean plastic filter inside hose.
Remove hose onto pump, and check for blockage or obstruction here as well..
Please rate my solution.
Thanks.

Machine wont go


There are no internal fuses in your m/c, if it does not go, check fuse in plug, if o/k then try amother socket.
If it still does not go, then could be faulty door lock.
Plz rate my solution.

Foul Smell from my GE Adora Washer..!


Having the same problem as everyone else , I make a habit of cleaning the filter once a month. I would like to advise people that if your load is heavy (such as scatter rugs) they will not spin out completely even when the filter is cleaned. No more GE for me!!
