Hi,

I am sorry to hear regarding the same. However, there could be many reasons for the same. As you mentioned it is an electrical smell - the smell may be from the belt or perhaps the motor windings. It could be short circuit in any of the components including the control board.More likely it seems that a component burnt up.

Unfortunately, you need to open the washer and try to locate the components visually to see what might have blown.There is no specific reason for the same.

Let me know,if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

A terrible smell coming from the wash basin. It smells like old wet clothes. We don't leave the clothes in for extended periods of time but it has gotten so bad that we have to remove them immediately...


If you mean your laundry sink, then mix 1 cup baking soda and 1 cup vinegar together and pour it into the drain. Let it sit in the drain for a few hours and then flush the drain with hot water. If you are tslking anout your washing machine you can buy a washing machine cleaner to get rid of the smell.

My clothes come out smelling terrible, what can I do ?


Do a maintenance wash. Run the hottest programme WITH detergent but WITHOUT laundry in the machine. This will kill off any molds and bacteria that have taken up residence in your machine. Most of us do most of our laundry at 40 degrees or less, which isn't hot enough to kill all the germs.

Ideally you would use a powder that contains bleaching agents when you do a maintenance wash: it kills the germs more effectively. Washing liquids don't contain bleaching agents (another reason the molds survive), so powder is best to kill off molds etc.

Sometimes it takes a few maintenance washes before the machine starts to smell nice again. In the mean time, perfumed washing liquids can help, as can scented fabric conditioners.

Good luck!

Laundry smells like mildew after washing


Front load washers retain water that you cant see or get to. There are cleaners for washing machines available. I clean mine every month with alot of bleach , try pouring a half gallon of bleach in the soap insert on a normal wash cycle and an extra rinse would not hurt no clothes of course.

Washing machine tripping everything in the house


Washing machines take out ring main fuses if there are faults in the machine:

washers heater unit
motor
or suppressor.

Also water may have breached a seal somewhere and cause a short inside the electrical compartments.

To fix a fusing washing machine you have to use a diagnostic electrical meter that puts high voltage across the appliance - Not something I can offer more info on. So whatever has happened (and in the interest of safety) you would probably want a qualified proffessional to take a look or as a last resort a hotpoint engineer!

Samsung Washer WT1101cw will not drain. Originally had a OE error. Running "Spin" or "Rinse Spin" cycles but pump cycles on for less than 1 second and goes into spin with water in it. _Laundry loaded with a OE error and water not draining. _I manually drained the system, took apart the drain and did not find a clog or anything to prevent the motor from turning. _Pump motor reads continuity. _Ran multiple SPIN cycles and then a RINSE and SPIN cycle and actually had the pump run for a few seconds and even for a minute or so one time but could not repeat and hasn't since. _checked the Pressure Switch and see continuity between common and outside contact. Tried to increase pressure by blowing into the tube using a straw on the end of tube but saw no change. Not sure how the pressure is created inside the bowl. _There was no overfill condition originally and I have not tried to run a normal cycle because the washer is in an upstairs location and draining is difficult and messy. ___I believe that something is preventing the voltage from being sent to the pump motor but I have am not sure what logic conditions need to be satisfied for this to happen.I keep looking at the pressure switch because the drum will perform a load sense and then go into a spin cycle with water in it which sloshes around. Questions: --Shouldn't the drain pump normally be running prior to the spin? --what causes the change in the pressure switch? Does the switch only change at a "full" level? Please only answer if you have a clear understanding of the system. I am trying to avoid excessive expense in this repair and swapping parts unnecessarily. I am beginning to think that it is the control board and do not want to spend hundreds of dollars if it is not. Thanks.
