There is a screw attached to the drum. You can remove it very easily and pull it hard to open it. Clean the components under running water.

My washing machine is beginnig to smell inside the drum is it because I wash on a quick cycle


It's very common. There is a high efficiency washing machine cleaner you can use in is as well as cleaning the gap in the seal for the door. Some machines also have a filter to catch small objects and if that is not clean it can smell as well.

I have a front loader that smells like something died in it. I have tried affresh bleach Tide washer cleaner Basic G leaving the door open cleaning the gasket washing the drum cleaning the filter and hoses...


you can open the filter drainage under near the drain hose. there may be something that comes into the washer drum and died leaving a smell. how to open the filter is rotated and pulled out only. then you try to drain the washing machine how to turn it. will allow water or sewage, which is in the drum filter out of the hole. and do not forget to clean the exhaust filter the water, there will be a lot of dirt.

Machine smells mouldy- washing stinks!


Find out where your filter is; it is at the end of the thick hose coming down from the bottom of your tub; open up and clean out. Another possibility is there could be something stuck in your drum, feel if you could locate it. Next clean out the hoses in machine. After all this flush out with a hot wash, without clothes. People shd ask the service man where the filter is. If he knows that is.......................It gives you the biggest problem if you dont check.

Maytag Bravos MVWX700XL2 won't spin the clothes and is making a weird whining/whirling noise when attempting to do so. Hi, I have a Maytag Bravos MVWX700XL2. It's about five years old. For about a year now, it would occaisinally make a weird noise while washing that seemed to come from the agitator working. I know this sounds funny, but the noise sounded like a chittering squirrel. It didn't do it all of the time, just mostly when I would wash smaller loads. Today I noticed while doing the weekly laundry, that the agitator wasn't fully agitating. It was turning back and forth, but very slowly and not "mixing" the clothes like it usually does. I went though two loads like that, and on the third load, when it was time for the washer to rinse and spin, it started to make a whining/whirling noise and it would not spin out the clothes (but it did drain). The control panel is not giving an error code. I removed the wet clothes and tried to have it just rinse and spin or drain and spin empty and the strange noise continued w/o any success. I have a video of it making that noise that I can post/send if someone can tell me how. I paid over $500 for the washer, and I really don't want to have to replace it this soon, nor do I want a $300 repair bill. My husband is very handy and could fix it if we knew how to properly diagnose the problem so we get the correct part. Based on what I've read, could it be the shift actuator or a broken motor coupler?
