Run a tub filled with a couple of quarts of white vinegar thru the cycles. It generally reduces smell of mildew and bacterial odor. Clorox works too. Run rags or other "throw-away" laundry during these cleaning methods.

Horible smell comingfromthe drum, took the filter out to clean it, now it is leaking, what can I do? ps smell still there, have tried 1 95o wash with no joy


For the pump try taking filter back out and putting back again for smell clean out the rubber door seal with soapy water after the door seal is clean clean the despencer draw fully by taking it out. When you washed the seal and draw get washing machine clean for local super market and do a 95oc wash it should smell nice now if not could be drains hope this helps.

Machine smells mouldy- washing stinks!


Find out where your filter is; it is at the end of the thick hose coming down from the bottom of your tub; open up and clean out. Another possibility is there could be something stuck in your drum, feel if you could locate it. Next clean out the hoses in machine. After all this flush out with a hot wash, without clothes. People shd ask the service man where the filter is. If he knows that is.......................It gives you the biggest problem if you dont check.

Hi, I have a Baumatic Washing Machine (not sure of the model) and cannot find the filter. The machine gives off an awful smell which I am trying to fix


you should find the filter but that is not what is causing the smell. common causes of smell are:
using liquid detergent - this smells like drains if used for a long period and leaves a horrid sludge in the tub. put on a boil wash with no clothers and use powder detergent
plumbed in under the sink and there is also a waste disposal unit. these pong!
no water barrier between the drain of the washer and the house drains

Cant find my filter o a hotpoint first edition


i cant find the filter on my aquarius either, but i just read somewhere that this egg smell is probably caused by u mostly running the machine on cool washes i.e 40' ? so its suggests u run the machine on a 95' empty wash using ure normal detergent 2-3 times a year as the smell is a build up of bacteria because your washes arent hot enuff to kill it. If ure egg smell is bad, i'd do the empty hot wash thing a couple of times to make sure ! hope this makes sense?! :)
