    Exactly as described by kelbell, but keeping the door open just doesn't cut it... What's the cause of the smell, and how do I stop it?

Make sure the door is kept open when not in use and also make shure that you do the cleaning procedure as described on the book once a month.

My washer smells horrible. The clothes after being washed smell horrible. I have left the door open. I have run bleach thru there 2 or 3 times in a row...didn't help. Have also run baking soda thru...


Despite washers remain with some residual water in the pump and wet components it should no be so critical as you are indicating especially if you cleaned it as you stated. You are not describing the smell but try to isolate the source, like the washer drainage point (odors coming from sewage), behind the washer, and inside or under the washer where the mechanical components are. It wouldn't be surprising to find a dead rat, lizard or pests in there. Sometimes even wet laundry falling behind the appliances stinks strongly. Be safe moving and reaching on difficult places. Good luck.

Musty smell in washer and clothes


run a wash with no clothes and hot water. put bleach in the detergent and bleach dispensers. when done washing for the day wipe the boot with a clean cloth and leave the door open, especially on warm humid days.

My whirlpool duet hp washer has a musty smell. i have used bleach several times but so far no help.


Clean the washer with Smelly Washer Cleaner or such product. Never close the door when not washing clothes, leave it open to air out

Washer smells even after cleaning cycle


Hi,

It sounds like an air vent is either missing or clogged. That gurgling usually indicates some sy phoning action going on which is drawing water out of a gas trap. Hence you are getting sewer smell into the washer.


Thank you !!

Don’t wait for the machine to jam to look into your filter.

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 very hot water with the Affresh pellet with no clothes and run the machine through a cycle. Also helps with any stagnant water smells. Put the Affresh pellet inside the machine, not in the soap dispenser.

You can give me a ‘very helpful’ rating for the free help, can't you. Thanks.

Clothes have a musty smell if left in the washer


Make shure to do a cleaning cycle. As well, wipe out the inside, the rubber gasket and the door when done washing for the day. We also have found that
leaving the door "Open" for several hours, when finnished, eliminates any future
smells.

Clothes Smell Musty and Damp


It sounds like a build up of washing residue. Clean inside the door seal and do a very hot wash with a bit of washing powder and no clothes. Repeat this once a week until smell has gone.
