Moldy smell in maytag washer


Check the drain. It SHOULD stand about as high as the washer, behind it, and it SHOULD have a trap below the floor (basement?).

If the drain's good and the trap is fine, then the pump could be borderline - it it doesn't pump all the water out, some water remaining in the washer may become stagnant and smell funky.

My LG Tromm washer does not drain all of the time. When is doesn't drain the water smells really bad. If I use a higher spin cycle setting it will usually drain, but that is beginning to not work either....


One thing LG did was install a manual drain hose located in the bottom left corner where the lint trap is, you can pull out the small hose and drain the machine that way, also, leave the door open on the washer slightly, this will allow the unit to dry better and eliminate odor, another cheap cleaning and odor elimination, pour 1/2 cup of chlorine bleach into the drum (with out clothes) put it on a short was cycle, the bleach should clean any bacterial growth; make sure to only due a white wash following this procedure to make sure that any possible bleach remaining dosen't effect color clothers....

My frigidaire affinity will spin when washing but only spin the closes dry when on delegate cycle what could the problem be?


Hello Tony - Often when a unit does not spin it is because the unit cannot properly drain and dispose of the water and detergent solution. Does the drain pump make a humming noise? If so, there may be a restriction in the drain line or siphoning. Otherwise since it is such a complex unit I would recommend contacting a professional to have either the pump or timer diagnose. Also you might want to clean out the coin trap, filter trap, of the unit for extra security. This needs to be completed about every 6 months to prevent any issues.

1. Unplug the unit.

2. Tilt the unit up to where the front feet are in the air and the back feet are still on the ground. Please make sure the unit is propped up safely.

3. Now that the unit is propped up look inside on the bottom right hand side there is a black looking accordion thing. This is the coin trap.

4. Clean the drum out with as much water as possible and have towels ready. The next step you will have the remaining water come out.

5. At the top of the coin trap where it is attached to the drum is a silver spring with a silver screw. Loosen the screw and wiggle the coin trap down from the drum.

6
. Reach inside the coin trap and clean what is inside of it out.

7. Put the unit back together following the same steps backwards

Frigidare FLXG52Rb won't final spin


Does the unit have a drainage problem? Do you notice the unit draining at all? Often when a unit does not spin it is because the unit cannot properly drain and dispose of the water and detergent solution.

Not over use detergent, this can result in oversudsing in the tub, and restricting the tub from turning properly.

That the drain hose is not too long.

That the drain hose is not restricted.

That the standpipe is not higher than 96" from the floor.

You may have defective timer or drain pump.

Also you might want to clean out the coin trap, filter trap, of the unit for extra security. This needs to be completed about every 6 months to prevent any issues.

If i leave the dishes in over night they smell the next day and I have to wash them again.


This could be a fairly serious issue and one you need to address. If the dishes smell musty and slightly pungent when left in overnight, this would indicate tat you may have a molding or mildew issue to deal with. This is created then during the final rinse cycle the remaining water in the lower trap unit is not completely flushed and may be holding some sentiment from a previous wash cycle. The item, probably a meat or bread item is stuck and due to the moisture it is retaining in the trap is now molding and this can lead to potential mold spreading throughout the core of the washer. Nothing to freak out about, but you should have the drain cleaned and make sure no sentiment is lingering in the trap. Let me know if this was helpful or if you require a further assistance.

Sewer smelling towels!!! Towels are the worst, other clothes are not great, but not as bad. For the past year I have endured this horrible smell. I've just had it!!! I have done the clorox washings many...


Put a cup of powdered dishwashing detergent in the barrel ie. Sunlight or Palmolive. Place 1 cup of bleach in the soap dispenser. Run on a quick cycle with HOT/HOT and run complete cycle. This does help and don't forget to clean the filter on the lower part of the unit.

Smell while washing only


Like bad eggs ?

Do you have a U bend in the wastepipe that takes the water away from your machine

If not then any smells from the pipe run can come back up the outlet pipe

Once you have ran the machine it flushes away the old water and the smell goes away

SMELLY WASHING MACHINE


A mouldy smell is often a sign of trapped residual water stagnating somewhere in the machine often just inside the door seal at the low point or in the filter.

Providing there is nothing like a old sock trapped in the pump or filter then there is not much you can do other than to dry the door seal and powder dispenser after use.



Please remember to rate this solution.

How do you have your drain hooked up?
I have seen people stuff the pipe so far into the stand pipe that when it goes into drain it siphons the water back. The water doesn't go all the way into the unit, but enough that the water in the 'P' trap moves, gas can then come up from the sewer. Make sure your drain pipe is hooked up properly. It should also not be a sealed fit either.
