Smelly, top loading, Whirlpool washing machine

I have a top loading Whirlpool machine from Lowe's and it's about 10 years old and I have noticed a horrible odor, like mildew/mold, etc. when washing clothes. Doesn't matter if it's cold water, hot water, anything. I have changed detergents, use bleach or non chlorine bleach and nothing helps.
I want to know where to find the Whirlout product? Do you know?
Thanks,
LM

Whirlpool has a new product out called affesh www.affresh.com it is supposed to help with cleaning out your unit. Keep in mind that it took a while to get into that state, so it might take a bit to get out of it. Some things to consider, the amount of detergent that you are using along with the amount of fabric softener, cut back on both. Remember with front loads you have much less water, so you don't need too much product in there. One of the be detergents on the market that I have found is called Persil, it is from Germany, costs a bit more but works great. As well you don't have to use too much of it 25ml or 1/8 of a cup, so it goes a long way, and no real odour build up that I have found.

The washer smells like sour water or stale water


I have this problem with my Siemens machine, it is due to mainly running low temp washes and bateria building up in the hoses etc. (more prevalent if the machine is connected directly to the sink and not on a stand pipe). I run a 90 degree cycle every 4 weeks with the machine empty except for two capfuls of baby sterilisng fluid (approx half a mug) I buy stores own as it is cheaper than miltons. The first time I did mine I ran the cycle twice to be sure it was cleared out. My machine is six years old and the first smelly signs were when it was about a year old, I run the maintenance wash religiously ever 4 weeks and run a machine descaler such as oust thru every 4-6 months. Hope this helps. Roni. (ps don't be tempted to use bleach as it foams up and can cause more problems!!)

Need APPROXIMATE water consumption on 10 yr old Whirlpool washer


Hello. The older top load washers use up to 60 gallons of water per load. That said, also check your toilets as a leaking toilet can use tens of thousands of gallons per year. Here is a link that explains how to check your toilets and other items for leaks. Regards, Joe

Smelly wash tub, in washer.


Model nums are fine in the store, if it is an oasis or calypso make sure drain hose is not in drain more than 5 inches. If not your pump might be going out or is clogged. A great cleaner developed is called washer magic and it will help the smell with some elbow grease. If not and is a traditional top load check motor and gearcase or even the timer for wear in a old machine.
