Question about Washing Machines

Open Question

Samsung Washing Machine WF330ANW We bought our machine around June of this year. My towels smell sour when I dry off with them. I know it isn't the dryer because they dry so quickly. ( I bought the Samsung Washer/Dryer set from Sears). I just don't thing they are washing like they should. Also, there is a little door at the bottom of the front on the machine that says to clean the filter every 2 months. I'm not seeing a filter. They is a little hose with kine of a cap on the end. Can someone help me with this. The only paperwork I received on this was a technical information guide and a quick reference guide. Thanks.

Try using www.affresh.com, in the wash using hot water. If your unit has a tub clean cycle use it. Leave the door open after using the unit to allow it to breath and wipe down the gasket. Use HE detergent and you don't have to use too much. That goes for the fabric softener as well.

SOURCE: Washing Machine smell

The problem comes from the design of the front load washers. There is always a little water left in the tub after the machine is used. Running a bleach load will deal with the mildew until the machine is used again. I leave the door open when I am not using my washer, and this does help.

SOURCE: My Sears Kenmore, 2 years old washing machine is ripping clothes

If this has a paddle,check it for a sharp edge,also make sure it is not loose, the top cap should be able to be pulled off to see the locking
bolt,and you can check to see if it has loosened.

Feel everywhere on the inside of the washer for a edge that might be catching your cloths. You can also try the gentle cycle and see if it does not rip them.

You did not post the model# ,so I have no clue what style it is.

SOURCE: error number 2 appears on Hoover AAA whisper 1400

I downloaded the manual from Hoover website. Error number 2 relates to the washing machine not filling up with enough water. Check the water supply and correct angle of the pipe.

SOURCE: Clothes are sour after wash

When you wash your clothes add 1/4-1/2 cup of baking soda to the wash water. You may have to do this every load depending on your water.

Kenmore washer mold smell issue


front loader of top loader? For front loaders you need to dry around the front gasket and leave the door open 24 hours after each wash.

Put a couple of towels in the machine and add a full box of Arm and Hammer Baking Soda and do a 90' boil wash. Clean towels and the smell gone.

My bath towels have an unpleasant smell after washing and drying. I have tried a few things but am sick of trying,


If you have a smelly front loading clothes washing machine, toss in a Finish Geltabs (the ones that are all liquid) and run the machine on a hot wash cycle, medium to heavy load (to get more water in the tub) with no clothes in the machine. You don't need to use much of a spin cycle so set it on low. The washing machine will come clean and even the moldy spots on the rubber gaskets will disappear. A second treatment may be needed if the smell is not completely gone. We tried everything from vineger to bleach to baking soda to borax to commercially available odor removers from Whirlpool and Tide. Nothing worked until I hit on this idea. It's cheap, easy and can be done anytime your machine needs a refreshing. I used the orange Geltabs but any fragrance would be fine. Keep the door on your washer open a bit when possible to air out to help preclude those nasty smells.

I have a samsung WFA338AW front loading washing machine which has worked great for the last year but since i left some towels in there that got mildewy i now can't get the mildew smell out of the chamber....


Now I don't know if this will work for you but you can give it a try. I have had good luck with those Cascade packets that you can use in your dishwasher. Try throwing one packet in the washer on the clean washer cycle. Also another step is to leave the door open completely on the washer for at least a week and not to use it so all the water will completely dry out. The bacteria will no longer have a place to grow if you let all the water dry up in the machine. Good luck and have a nice holiday.

I have an LG washer that had the same problem. Go to the site www.nufreshnow.com and read all about why this is happening, how to fix it and how to keep it from comming back. A few different ways of cleaning the machine are explained.

The site sells a product that you may or may not need but the explanations are really good.

Sour Smell in clothes


While cruising around the net searching for some phone batteries, I came across an ad for a product called "Smelly Wash". I was intrigued by the name, and, since I have been trying to help out a friend who has issues with her front loader and water that is very high in iron and other fragrant minerals, I thought I'd take a look.

32 years ago I bought our first washer and the plumber who came to install it recommended SA8. He told me he had taken apart many machines and most were gummed up with the fillers that are in many detergents. Liquid detergents were not as prevalent at the time.

I friend of a friend helped me locate an Amway distributor and I bought SA8 from her for a few years until we moved. In our next home, I found another distributor and continued using the SA8.

Meanwhile, we added three more daughters to the family and I never once used anything but SA8.

Year's later, an older friend's husband (quite ill with emphysema and with severe contact dermatitis, countless allergies, etc.) called me to borrow some SA8 because that was all she could use for his clothing, sheets, towels...

With each move, we have left washing machines behind because sometimes they were "selling" points. My current machine is a 6 or 7 year old Whirlpool frontloader and I have never had "smelly" issues.

I care for my cloth-diaper using granddaughter and have absolutely no problems washing her diapers. I use one small scoop of SA8, and on occasion, a booster if the load is large. That's it. Nothing smells...EVER...even if I accidentally leave a washed load overnight. Every load smells CLEAN, but with NO scent.

I will go to my grave using SA8. I have to give my clothes away because they just don't get beat-up by the machine nor the detergent.
