Kenmore 90 Series, 10 years old; Dryer was making funny noise and stopped in the middle of a cycle. There was a burnt smell when it stopped. Cannot turn drum manually either. What are possibilities?


OF COURSE SOMETHING BURNT INSIDE THE SYSTEM. YOUR MOTOR MIGHT BE BURNT. 90 SERIES, YOU MUST HAVE THE LINT FILTER ON TOP CORRECT? TAKE FILTER OUT, UNSCREWS THE TWO SCREWS, PULL TOP PANEL TOWARDS YOU AND LIFT UP. DISCONNECT LID SWITCH CONNECTOR, UNSCREW TWO SCREWS HOLDING FRONT PANEL ON, REMOVE FRONT PANEL, TAKE DRUM OUT AND CHECK THE UNIT. GOOD LUCK

Why does my front loading washing machine smell bad and make my laundry smell sour?

You have to remove the bottom front panel, 3 torx screws underneath. The panel will drop and come off. Drain off the excess water from the hose you see. The white filter cover is right in front. Get yourself a bunch of towels or a good big plastic bag to collect water. Unscrew the filter cover and twist the filter out. Clean out all the stuff and put it back in carefully.

Next: You can use Affresh to clean your front loader. Deposits of soap and other such things can be stuck around the inside tub of your washer. Try this product, it works great on all front loaders. Use hot water with the Affresh pellet with no clothes and run the machine through a cycle. Also helps with any stagnant water smells. Have you cleaned out your pump lately. Put the pellet inside the machine, not in the soap dispenser.
Pl give me a good rating for the free help, thanks.

I have a Kenmore 'Elite' front loading washer that stinks


Have you been leaving the door cracked open after washing a load? If not, mildew will form and smell. If you have, then it would be something else. Respond with any questions.

My ge model wbvh5200j2ww washer wont't start. it has power on the panel but doorwon't latch or start filling.


If the pump filter is clogged, the washer won't even turn on. This filter is located behind the small access panel at the bottom on the front of the washer. Remove access panel, flip down scoop, and unscrew filter. You will need a bowl to catch water that comes out(may smell bad). Pull out filter, clean, and replace. Washer should work normally afterwards.

Ice tastes funny and a strange metallic or plastic type smell


Sometimes the smell comes from something in the freezer or even the refrigeratior and makes the ice taste funny. My suggestion is to clean out the freezer compartment of anything frozen that has been there a while and may have freezer burn. That may be the funny smell you are experiencing.
Hope this will help you.

Mold smell


The filter on your pump is probably clogged with lint and stuff. You have to remove the bottom front panel, 3 torx screws underneath. The panel will drop and come off. Drain off the excess water from the drain pipe you see. The white filter cover is right in front. Get yourself a good plastic bag to collect water. Unscrew the filter cover and twist the filter out. Clean out all the stuff and put it back in carefully. Check your pump too.

On some models the filter is located ‘inside’ the big hose from the bottom of the tub. This takes more time to clean.

Next run your washer with 2 cups of bleach, hot water. After it starts agitating stop the washer & let it remain for 2 hours. Then continue the wash.
