How to have a Clean Washer


If you are wondering how to clean the clothes washing machine then here is what you need to know.

Your washing machine works hard at cleaning your clothing, but once in a while you need to give it a good cleaning also. Whether you have a front loading washing machine or a top loading washing machine, you still should take the time to clean it once in awhile.

First take a good household cleaner and wipe down the outsides of your washer. Then wipe down the inside of the lid and on front load washing machine, the rubber just inside the door. To get the rubber clean you may need to move it around, pushing and pulling on the rubber to remove the wrinkles temporarily, to get into them and get the gunk out.
Then you are ready to clean the inside of your washing machine.

Some prefer lemon juice and others white vinegar. Either one is good, but the vinegar may be better at controlling odor in the washing machine. For either one turn the washing machine to the highest load or water setting and fill the machine. Add 2 cups of lemon juice or vinegar to the machine. Run it for a few minutes and then let it sit for at least an hour. Then let the machine finish the cycle. Run another cycle after with 2 cups of bleach. Also let the bleach sit in your washer for at least an hour. The run another complete cycle to rinse out your washing machine thoroughly.

This should give you a clean washer and hopefully you had fun washing the washer.

My wash water smells bad. I leave the lid open between loads. When I do a wash it smells really bad.


Hi,

After extended use, your washing machine can develop odors from the water, soap, residue, etc. The easiest and first thing to try is washing machine cleaner. You add this to the washer and then run a wash cycle. The product comes with instructions. Depending on the condition of your washer, you may have to run the cleaner through more than once.

You can usually purchase a washing machine cleaning product form stores that carry laundry detergent.

Here is a link to a product that you can try::

I have a ken more elite he washer and it smells bad


Bleach is not usually recommended for these machines as a cleaner. There are commercial cleaning packets that you can purchase and use once a month to keep the washer smelling fresher. Front load machines are notorious for odors. One way to reduce them, is to leave the door ajar after use rather than closing it. This allows for some drying and prevents bacterial buildup.

I have a strange odor


It is normal for all models of washing machines to have a gallon or two of water left inside the bottom of the washer and in the drain pump. This is not the cause of odor. The smell is being caused by residue left on the inside of the plastic outer tub.


The best way to clean a stinky washer is to use a washer cleaner that is able to be used with clothing in the washer. The added bulk of the laundry will raise the water level to include the splash area 3-5 inches above the normal waterline. This splash area always has the worst buildup.
After the odor is gone you'll need to change washing habits to keep it away.

My GE Front load washer (WBVH6240) has an odor that smells like mildew in it. If the is left closed the odor is really bad. Do you know how to fix this or what is comes from?


run a empty cycle with bleach on whites/ sanitize. clean boot (rubber gasket at door) with bleach or other cleaner inside especially at bottom, make sure 3 holes at bottom are clear.
this may take multiple cycles to rid of odor.
For maintenance, you should wipe excess water from boot after last load, and check lower drain holes. Once a month wipe boot with windex or other. and run cleaner cycle (empty) newer machines have a special clean washer cycle. (6240 doesnt).
Also clean your drain pump filter at bottom front behind access panel.
If boot is really bad , replace.

My water has been smelling of sulfur. The clothes I was end up smelling of BO after being worn for only a short time. It isnt that the person is smell it is the clothing. Is there something to be added to...


I found that WasherFresh worked better then the Affresh.  What I really did not like is you cannot touch the Affresh tablets, WasherFresh is contained in a pouch and is not harmful to touch, because of the disolving pouch containing the chemicals.  Also after reading the package the chemicals are not harmful to the environment.
WasherFresh removed the odor causing buildup and I now use it monthly as a preventive maintenance.
