Question about Kenmore Elite 45986 Front Load Washer
Hi - we moved into a new house in February & my hubby installed the washer & dryer. ever since we moved in the washer has a moldy smell in it, and if you leave the clothes in the washer for more than 2-3 minutes after the wash is complete, the clothes smell nasty & have to be re-rinsed. After the clothes are removed, the washer still smells as well. Have not had this problem before, and have had the washer several years.Any ideas? (my hubby wonders if there may be standing water in the draining area? but no idea how to check it)
I had this problem and it stuck up the whole house (2 story), laundry upstairs. The way I got the problem to go away was: 1) Use a good brand detergent (I use Tide HD). When I used the kirkland brand HD was when I notice the issue. 2) Do as Solution #1 instructed, run cycle with bleach on hot/hot. 3) After every wash, leave the washer door open. These instructions will help with the problem.

Run cycle using bleach only in water after cycle use a bleach/water solution to thoroughly wash door seal be sure to pull seal at bottom of drum opening and clean inside lip in future leave door open as much as possible between cycles just remember YOU ARE NOT ALONE..all front loaders no matter the brand have same issue some just worse than others
