on all front loaders, the smell comes from not been used every day, #1, and water sit at the bottom of the drum, is always water in the system from the top of the drain hose to the pump, and they, the manufacture recommend that you use some chemical once per month to clean the unit.
this is what I do. get a bucket of water and bleach 3 water 1 part bleach, get a rug that you do not need any more. wet the rug and with your hand open the door and put the rug unter the rubber around the glass door, in other worth's, the rubber that connects the door to the drum bucket rinclos and water and other material stays there, building mildew, would be good to wear a globe, and clean the inside of these rubber real nice, go around several times to make sure you don't miss a spot., the cloth well come out black means it is loaded. then put the rest of the water and bleach in the machine, add 2 caps of bleach in the machine, fill it to hi and let it stay for 1 hour or more in the drum, then have a gentle cycle, these well clean the rest of the unit. one more thing, if you have members of the family that forget coins or papers in they pocket. may have to do more work to clean and drain the unit, just let me know I well help you.

I would say that the rubber may have gone into the system, and is probably clogging up the water outlet hose, and or the Pump. This is a bit of a "Fix' it will require the taking off of the motor and Hoses, connected to see where that bit of rubber is.http://www.letsfixit.co.uk/html/washing_machine_faq.html

Hi..we washed a rubber backed rug and the rubber came off and the water will not fully drain. we washed several empty cycles since with no results


You will have to take the hoses off between the tub and pump, and the pump and weall drain. They are packed with rubber. Oh, don't forget to clean the inside of the pump too. Run clean water through all hoses and the pump before reinstalling and you should be fine. Don't wash rubber backed rugs in washers unless you go to the laundry mat. This should be put in the maintenance guide of your washer book, but I've yet to see it.

Remove thye power Take off the back panel

Lean the machine forward onto a solid surface

Put something underneath it to stop it falling on you

Locate the main hose coming down from the drum to the pump , put a dish under that area

Loosen the clips holding the hose on

Take off the hose and clean out the crud

Reassemble, fill the machine with water via the front door using a jug

Check for leaks, if there are none put the power on and switch the machine into spin mode

The water you put in should come out

Put the back panel on and off you go

Kenmore Energy Washer front load - about 5 - 7 years old


Hi mommo2,
I really hate those little rubber pieces that come off of those rugs, they really gum up everything. Just for future reference try to wash those outside with a water hose and a scrub brush. It will save you lots of money in repairs.
As for your current problem try to get as much out of the tub as possible. Then you will have to remove the small kickplate on the bottom of the washer. Get you some towels and a maybe a flat pan to catch some water. The panel will have a few screws around it that will need to be removed. Once you have removed the panel you will see your pump. The front of the pump has a filter that can be unscrewed and removed for cleaning. Unscrew the filter and get ready to catch some water. Maybe as much as a couple gallons. Once you have cleaned it out put the filter back in the pump and leave the panel off. Run the washer throught another cycle and clean the pump out again. You may need to repeat this several times. Hopefully this will solve the problem, if you still have draing issues you could have a clogged drain and for that you may need a plumber. Well good luck to you and I hope I helped.

GE Washer won't drain or spin


this is something that you can fix even if your not a technical person . first you have to open the washing machine front panel or back panel , second , follow the DRAIN HOSE to where its connected to a little motor, disconnect the DRAIN HOSE , take the LITTLE MOTOR out and clean it out , it could be clogged.
it happen once and find out the person put the BATH RUG SET
to wash , the rug was so old that pieces of a rubber underneath the rugs clogged the drain , so there was no rinse and no spin.
try it , I hope it helps.

Spins but water won't drain out.


Yep that rug backing has totally clogged hoses, drain pump.
will have to be dissasembled and cleaned. You could try some creative things like using air pressure to try and clear the tubes.
