The machine smells awful. I have to leave the door open to "air 'it out but now my clothes and my towels stink after washing

    I have the same problem. I think it has to do with the water that collects at the bottom of the door seal and gets all moldy. Poor design if you ask me. Washing with bleach doesn't seem to help. I periodically wipe out the collected water, but that has to be done almost every time.

Run a load with only bleach in all three dispensers (be sure to select bleach cycle) and run a HOT cycle. This worked for me.

Do you wash whites separately or with bleach? Sometimes changing up the loads to whites with bleach would kill the germs.

When i wash it smells like rooting eggs i tryed bleach and the tablets but smells up the hole house what wrong its a lg tromm wm-2487hwm steam washer


I had the same problem. You must take out your clothes immediately and leave the door open after every wash to let the inside of the washer completely dry. I believe I read to run a cycle of bleach water and wipe down the inside of the door and interior with bleach/water mixture. Then let it dry. You then can start washing your clothes again, but you must be diligent about leaving the door open to air out between washings.Hope this works for you. I almost sold my machines shortly after I bought them because my clothes were always smelly after washing. Leaving the door open has worked for us.

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 !!

Smelly clothes


Maytag had a big problem with the rubber boot in the front of the washer.They redesigned it to drain better so water would not remain in the bottom and get moldy smelling.Open the door and look down in the boot with a flashlight.Make sure if there are drain holes in the bottom that they are clear and not clogged with soape or lint.Put a couple of old towels in the machine and a little soap and twice as much clorine bleach as normal and run a cycle.It should help.It is also good to leave the door opened between washes if possible.

Smelly clothes after washing


yes musty is actually cooked soap
from the dryer
take a clean just washed towel and put it in the washer alone with no soap
turn on the machine and watch what happens you will see the suds start to form
with this unit, if your using too much soap it will be spun into the cloths and then cooked in the dryer
do one towel load without soap then cut you soap usage way back
anything more than a tablespoon is way to much

remember you bought this unit to save water

1/6 the water 1/6 the soap
and he should be less

Smelly washer


The disgusting smell is from using too much detergent, using softener or from using only cold water for washing.

The area of buildup is just above the normal waterline where suds and soiled water splash up and don't get rinsed out. To clean this area: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ua6OJPn0-fU

The added bulk of the laundry will raise the water level to include the "splash area" intermittent pausing to soak is also a good tip in extreme cases.

LG washing machine has AWFUL mildew smell


I have an LG washer that had the same problem. Go to the site www.nufreshnow.com and read all about why this is happening, how to fix it and how to keep it from comming back. A few different ways of cleaning the machine are explained.

The site sells a product that you may or may not need but the explanations are really good.

Stinky towels


Mildew odor in towels in almost invariably being transferred from the washing machine. The clothes washer must be cleaned first then clean the smelly towels and laundry. To compare washer cleaners watch this video of Affresh and Smelly Washer...

Smells of mildew and so do clothes


Hi! I have Kenmore Elite 4t and had this same problem: Musty, Moldy smell in washer and on clothes. The Sears Technician suggested that I use a half a cup of Clorox Liquid Bleach and put it in the tub (not the dispenser). NO CLOTHES! Use the longest hottest setting and when it's done clean the inside (underneath rubber tire thingie) and the undernath part of the door with a papertowel. And to always leave the door open. I did what he said with the bleach and it worked. I didn't want to leave the door open because I have 2 cats & was afraid that they would want to go in it, but ended up repeating the bleach thing again because a few days later the horrible smell was back. I leave the door open all the time now and the cats never go in it. They've watched laundry spin around, so I guess they're smart enough to not want to go in it. I have not had this problem again since I always leave the door open and I did this over a month ago. I hope this helps!

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.
