Question about Whirlpool GSC9455 Top Load Washer

2 Answers

Smells I can do a load of laundry and AS SOON as I go down to put it in the dryer the clothes smell like they have been sitting there for days. We got this washer when we bought the house a year ago and we were told that it was about 5 years old. It is a whirlpool but i am not sure what the model # is. It sounds like there is still water in the washer when I mess with the thing in the middle. I was thinking maybe a drainage problem and when I looked for the tube that I suspect is the drainage tube. It comes out of the washer and goes up the wall into another pipe... Is that how it is supposed to be? What could be causeing the "sewage" smell in my washer???

Means that the DRAIN MOTOR PUMP not working properly and still water stays inside machine giving you that smell , if your handy or know someone that is , you need to open the panel of washer and look for a small motor at the bottom with 2 hoses connected to it , take it out clean it for any debri that could be stuck inside the impellers ,put it back and try again , have handy some rags and a pail , hope this helps & please rate , thanks AJ

Why do my clothes have horrible smell


Front loader? Welcome to our hell.

Seriously though - it's not that bad. You need to have a different mindset with these machines. First, throw away your old detergent. You've GOT to use the type with the HE logo on it. Really. There is a difference.

Wipe out any standing water in the gasket between the drum and door opening after the last load of the day.

Leave the door open slightly to allow air to flow around between washes.

Open the other doors for detergent, bleach, etc. between laundry days.

Don't use liquid fabric softener. Use dryer sheets instead.

Run a small, empty load with hot water and bleach ONLY. No clothes, as your last load for the days that you do laundry.

Use a product like Affresh, once or twice to rid the washer of existing smells. You can use Affresh any time the smells start coming back - and follow the suggestions above.

After completing a load of clothing, the laundry sometimes has a moldy smell. If it doesn't smell right away, it smells after wearing the clothing and sweat a bit. This is not a body smell - this is a...


It sounds like your leaving the clothes in the washer long after the cycle is finished. Once your clothes smell from the washer they will smell moldy dry.

Smelly towels


Be sure your using HE Laundry Detergent, only use the recommended amount on the bottle, I use the liquid, the less the better, I use the least amount.....To much soap left in clothes can cause mildew and stinky smell, also I recommend using a fabric softner, it helps to remove the soap....and smells good....also use a good washer cleaner, I use Affresh, they come in tablets, go to www.affresh.com and put in you zipcode to find where you can purchase it in you area......make sure after a load is finished that it doesn't sit in the tub with the lid down for long, removing the laundry promptly will also help with stinky laundry........use the Affresh at least once a month.......hope this helps you

My clothes smell like mildew


Run a load of wash water with chlorine bleach ***Without adding clothes***. This will kill any spores in the system. Try to remove laundry as soon as it is finished and don't let it sit in the washer overnight. If possible, keep the door open when not in use.

Bad smell inside dryer


that's because it's brand new. See if it goes away in a month. After a load has dried leave the door open for a bit. What does it smell like?

Laundry stinks


I find that the dryer does not dry the clothes enough. The washer can take a lot of laundry at one time but the dryer is not able to handle the load. The stink usually comes from a bit of moisture left in the the clothes, especially the towels. Break down your dryer loads or dry them on a timed cycle for a longer time.

Bad smell


washers and dryers dont make smells themselves its a problem with something u might be putting in it. if u tend to add alot more detergent then usual to your towels then they never completely rinse the water out and will have a mildew smell
