Washing machine smell

Hello. I was recently using an oil based stain to stain my deck. I washed out the brushes and things in our slop sink in the basement. Our washing machine emptys into the slop sink. The sink got clogged with the stain and it must have backed up in to the washing machine. Now all the clothes being washed come out smelling like the stain. I have tried bleach and vinager and niether have worked. Can you please help me!

    The inside of the tub does not have any stain on it. It must be in the piping or something!

You need to use a steel wool with alot of ajax/comet and start scrubbing the entire inside of the tub.Its not going to wash out any other way.

My LG Front Load washing machine is leaving black streaks and smudges on my clothing. These streaks and smudges are ruining my clothes!


Hi,

There can be several things that can cause this problem. The most common are:

1. Fabric softener - did you switch brands lately?

2. Chlorine bleach - if added at the wrong time

3. A mechanical problem with the washer, like a leaky transmission leaking oil.

4. Rust staining, sometimes caused by the water being used in the machine.

Here is a link to a site that discusses this issue more in depth:

OIL STAIN ON A CLOTHES out of washing machine E12477


Are they getting the oil stain from the washing machine? If so, you need to get a tech out to inspect your washing machine. If you are putting oily clothes into the washing machine hoping it will come out, it's too late, you need to pre-wash with Shout or Tide to remove oils and grease. The more you wash and dry it the deeper the stain will set. Sounds like you need to throw those clothes away.

I bought the face foundation with the brush attached and not only did it saturate the brush while flying, but it has splashed on two of my favourite shirts and I have tried everything to get the stains...


For a stain caused by anything with an oily base (including most makeup), try Murphy's Oil Soap. It's vegetable oil based, so it can break up the oil in the makeup. Dab some on full-strength and let it soak in before washing.

Smell coming from washing machine like stagnant water-hotpoint wma 44....seems to be coming up through the drain in sink


Hi from retired Englishman in France,

If the smell is coming from the drain in the sink, it is more likely that THERE is the problem rather than the washing machine. Washing machines deal only with 'dirty' clothes whereas sinks have all sorts of things going down them! You could have a partially blocked u-tube (not to be confused with YouTube!) in the sink because normal (changing/flowing) water in the u-tube should block smells coming from the main/foul water drainage system.
I would definitely investigate the sink! If it is not practical to remove the u-tube, use a propriatory sink cleaner ensuring that it is the right one for the job- OK for plastics or OK for metal (not chrome).

Good luck,

John C

Recently my washing machine has been giving off a putrid eggy smell when on any program. I clean inside the drum, the drawer ect often. i have checked both inside and outside drains and cleaned them. i was...


it may well be stuff from your sink drain trap syphoning back into your washing machine
sounds like you need an anti syphon valve to be connected in line with your washing machine waste water outlet

Check that hose discharge from washing Machine loops up above the minimum height as specified by the machine manufacturer and at least to the underside of the work top for an inset sink before connecting into the sink trap.

Grease on my freshly washed cloths


This sounds like a seal problem in the base of the agitator. This seal is what keeps the water inside the machine and the grease out of the wash basin. It is not something that should be attempted to repair if you are not mechanically inclined.

To get the grease out of your clothes, use an engine de-greaser which can be bought from any automotive parts store. You just spray the de-greaser on the area where the grease is located and rub it in by hand. You will need to use lots of soap to remove the de-greaser from your clothes, and might have to wash the item twice, to get rid of the de-greaser smell from the clothes.

Note, the de-greaser will break down all oil stains and grease stains, and is an oil by-product. This has worked for me on many occasions, but I have only used it on denim jeans and cotton shirts, with excellent results.

Kerosene smell from the dryer


I have read other places that if you have recently painted, stained, varnished or used something in your house that has some sort of oil base it can make you dryer make your clothes smell like Kerosene. My dryer started doing the same thing and it was at the same time that a contractor was staining some trim in our basement. Good luck.

Egg smell at start of wash.


Make sure that the drain hose is connected correctly, and that there isn't a direct run down from the sink u-bend to the washing machine. This can allow some of the dirty water running down the sink to run down the drain hose into the washing machine. A drain hose that is connected to a sink u-bend should first go up at least 3 or 4 inches high (it may need tying up) before running down to the washing machine. Good luck!
