Hi, what happens is that water sits at the bottom of the discharge pipe, as well as a build up of "gunk", which is a great breeding ground for bacteria and such. So during the first rinse out, the smelly water and gunk is discharged into the drain, and the smell comes up from the laundry tub drain. Pour a few cups of bleach into the discharge hose and let it sit for an hour. This will kill all the nasties. Then just run the machine once through to pump out the bleach.

Terrible smell from the washer. This is a new


do not use baking soda this will react with your detergent and leave smelly deposits and reduce the wash performance modern good quality detergents contain everything needed for a good wash result and a sweet smelling machine. try a hot wash with detergent and an empty load to get rid of smell.

I have a Whirlpool Gold Ultimate Care II, Commericial Quality, Super Capacity Plus...it smells. No really it has a terrible odor. It's a sour foul smell. Water and detergent and various clothes washing...


Whirlpool now has cleaning tablets to take the smell out washers. They say they are for HE front load machine but it works on all machines. They are called affresh washer tablets. Just buy some and put all three tablets in the tub with hot water and let the washer go through a cycle with just the tablet(no clothes). By putting all three in the washer at one time it will kill the smell. For later use the package is a three month supply. They cost under 10 dollars.

Terrible Smell


Try a Quarter cup of dish washer detergent and a hot wash. this will flush out the inner bowl. Make sure you use the powder only and watch for over foaming. You might be getting a funny smell from the fabric conditioner.This stuff forms badly to the side of the bowls like glue. You couild take the bowl to pump hose off and clean the system out including the pump making sure you unplug the washing machine first. I would personally flush it out two or three times first. steve NZL, keep it simple
