Question about Whirlpool Washing Machines

1 Answer

Hi... I have a problem with my whirlpool duet washer... The past few months its starting to smell and as the days go by its getting worse... I have checked the trap for cloths getting stuck, which do happen sometimes and I have also had all the pipes cleaned out... Could there be a small piece of cloths, like a sock **** behind the drum or Could there is water lying somewhere that is not getting drained... Please tell me what could be wrong. Thank You lifesaver104@hotmail.com

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 !!

Monthly Cleaning Protocol


  1. Hello. here it is: Use only the proper amount of HE (high-efficiency) detergent in your Duet. Whirlpool has stated that using too much detergent or fabric softener in the Duet can ruin a high-speed spin bearing responsible for spinning the basket. The replacement part is approximately $600. Whirlpool also claims that using too much detergent or softener can cause fungus growth.
  2. If you have mold and mildew problems with your Duet, check the filter trap. Unplug the washer and remove the three screws in the seam between the door and the bottom panel to remove the bottom panel. The Duet drain pump has a design flaw that leaves about a cup of water in the filter trap under the tub. Clean out that filter with bleach every month or two to eliminate mold problems.
  3. Put small items in a mesh bag before washing. There is a good chance they will get lodged in the Duet's filter trap, if you don't. Check the filter trap mentioned in Step 2 monthly to make sure there aren't any small items blocking the filter.
  4. Remove your detergent dispenser every month and wash with warm water and bleach to prevent mold buildup. Remove the fungus smell from your washer with Affresh washer cleaner. Always keep the washer door open when not in use.

My Duet Washer has an extreme mold smell. I have


The mouldy smell.......what else?

try adding 2 or 2 cups of Sugar Soap Concentrate then fill the machine and leave it for 24 hrs.
Then put it through a wash cycle without any clothes.

If this fails to fix the problem you are looking at a complete strip down and clean out!

Strange smelling towels - HE Frontloader


Try running the washer with detergent and a box of baking soda--no clothes--and HOT water. Do you have very hard water in your area?

Musty smell


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.

WHIRLPOOL DUET FRONTLOAD WASHER


I had similar problem, the front door seal can trap small items,socks,handtowels. I didnt figure this out for some months, each load of clothes had a foul, mildew smell, Check door seal for trapped clothes, run intermittent cycles with bleach only, no clothes, be sure to leave door open when not in use to air out , this will reduce smell.
