A few tablespoons of vinegar in the middle (fabric softener) compartment of the soaps drawer every few loads should help with any smells.

You could add some diluted bleach to the soap and fabric softener compartments and wash something you don't mind getting bleached. It should kill off any mould or mildew that may have build up in the nooks and crannies. Open the button trap door and clean it out as well (front lower right corner - says push and has a large screw plug inside. Close really tightly after or it will leak)

My washing machine wont wash or spin proprly


the water is not pumping out because you have a blockage in the filter unit which is located at the bottom of your machine or possibly a weak pump. the reason that your machine smells is because the water is not discharging. check the filter first for any blockages, i.e coins, bra wires etc. if that doesn't sort it you may need a new pump

Sorry but your model number doesn't register with me in the USA.
My experience tells me that the plastic water line from the filter to the water tank to the dispenser outlet is your problem. Replace those parts and you should be ok.
Hope this helps.

Odd odor coming out of dishwasher upon opening it. Smells like rotten milk. What is the best cleaning solution?


After a dishwasher is installed the hose rarely comes to mind - unless a problem occurs and a repair person comes out to inspect the job. If the hose was installed improperly, or if it is lying in a position that does not let it drain, stagnant water will create a bad smell. Examine the hose that is probably inside the kitchen cabinet beneath the sink. If the hose is lying in the bottom of the cabinet, it is probably full of water. A film begins to form inside the hose and the odor begins to grow. The next time the dishwasher is used, the stagnant water ends up on dishes, and in the meantime it can cause a bad smell inside of the dishwasher. Hang the hose at an angle on supports in the back of the cabinet. This alone might get rid of the bad smell inside the dishwasher.

Check the Seal

A dirty dishwasher seal can be a source of a bad smell. Before deciding the dishwasher needs to be replaced, check the seal - especially at the bottom. Old food and grime builds up in these areas and can cause a particularly bad smell. Clean it with a solution of diluted bleach and hot soapy water. One teaspoon of bleach for each quart of water is sufficient to kill germs and the odors they create.

NB I decided to add a little bit of vinegar to the machine after I unloaded it. Sure it would smell pretty strong for a while but then the smell would dissipate. Voila! For two weeks now my dishes have not smelled whatsoever.

Hi, there is a really bad smell coming from the machine, also i have just done a 60 cycle and the white wash has come out with black marks on, looks like fungus,


Hi





The smell usually comes when the washer is unable to drain water completely, you can run your washer at its hottest temperature setting with 1 cup of vinegar inside the unit. After this take off the bottom front panel and clean it completely, also clean the drain hose and drain pump filter, the smell should disappear after doing all this.



Hope this helps...please post back for further assistance.

Really bad smell from drum?


Power off the mains. The filter is located behind the silver plate at the back of the machine at the bottom. Four screws hold it on. Drain out all the water. The filter is inside the big black rubber hose attached between the pump and the main drum. Remove the plastic clip holding it to the pump unit and then the metal cir clip holding it to the main drum. Inside is a white molded cone and a big white ball which floats. You will find a lot of junk here, clean out thoroughly. To refit put white cone back inside just as you found it, at the bottom, fit ball back into the cone. Attach to the bottom to the drum and re-fasten the cir clip. Finally reconnect the hose to the pump unit and tighten the plastic clip. Check out the pump too before reconnecting. Being the first time you shd note what you doing, what goes where. You certainly don't need techs for this; and techs who come are useless anyway.

Stopped working mid cycle. The timer still counts down but does not fill, agitate, spin, drain. And before it stopped, the water that was draining out smelled really bad.


The filter on your pump is probably clogged with lint and stuff. You have to remove the bottom front panel, 3 torx screws underneath. The panel will drop and come off. Drain off the excess water from the hose you see. The white filter cover is right in front. Get yourself a bunch of towels or a good big plastic bag to collect water. Unscrew the filter cover and twist the filter out. Clean out all the stuff and put it back in carefully.

Next: You can use Affresh to clean your front loader. Deposits of soap and other such things can be stuck around the inside tub of your washer. Try this product, it works great on all front loaders. Use quite hot water with the Affresh pellet with no clothes and run the machine through a cycle. Also helps with any stagnant water smells. Have you cleaned out your pump lately. Put the pellet inside the machine, not in the soap dispenser.
Pl give me a good rating for the free help, thanks.

A really bad smell coming from the fridge


I had a similar problem with an unbearable smell, not inside, but outside the refregeration compartment. it was from the defrosted liquid that gets stored in a small open tank at the bottom on the rear side of the fridge. over time , particles settle along with water and gives a rooten smell, cleaning this tank solved it.

Hope this helps,

Nasty water accumulation from washing machine


Posted by Jay on Jan 11 2009

I have the same washer now for several years now. I keep getting the smell now and then. After reading all these disappointed people I went down to the machine and cleaned out the "Pump filter". It had been smelling today, I was tired of this problem also. So i opened the little door at the bottom front left corner. There you find a little black hose, pull it out a little and pull the plug. There you drain the water that's laying inside smelling up the house. Now you un-screw the big black cap. Once you remove the cap, you find a plastic filter-catcher. I found paper, a dime, and several other things that came out of my pockets. You can take the basket to the sink and wash it out. Put it back together and try checking it in one month. Also I used some needle nose pliers to clean the nasty stuff around the gasket. At the bottom of gasket try pulling it back to get to the hair and ****. We have a dog, so the hair is bad.
