Hi, The last two washes i've just done on my Hotpoint WD72, the washing has gone full cycle but has come out smelling damp. Any ideas? I've had it since 2005 when it was new.


This will potentially sound odd, but run the 90 degree cycle with 3 dishwasher tablets in the drum. The smell is bacterial and probably the result of a build up of residue from biological soap powder (Which is simply bacteria that eat your stains). Dishwasher tablets are anti-bacterial and will kill the bugs making the smell

Soap tablets are not disolving in the drawer?


Unlike a dishwasher the drawer on a washing machine is for soap powder or liquid. Tablets won't dissolve in the drawer you need to put them in the drum if at all.

Smelly front loader washing machine. Clothes come out smelly too. How did I fix the problem???


You may have to do this 2 times and you will never find this in any manual. Use 1/4 cup "Powdered" Dishwashing soap and 1 cup of bleach in an empty tub cycle. Run a load of older dark clothes or non flammable rags FIRST after doing this the first time. If they come out with streaks run the cycle of 1/4 cup Powdered dishwashing soap and 1 cup bleach again. Same routine after 2nd cleaning cycle... dark clothes check for anything out of the ordinary. You should not have to do it a 3rd time unless your machine is really gunked up. Hopefully your using HE type soaps in your front loader. Non HE laundry soaps will cause the smelly machine also.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Tub smells like mildew, how do i get all the sludge out from the rubber lining, no matter if I run the tub clean cycle, it does not remove any of the sludge!!!!


You need to manually wipe out the inner seal(lining) every time you finish with the washer. This is one of the main complaints with front loading washing machines. You also neep to leave the door open(ajar) after you finish washing so the machine can completely dry out inside otherwise you will get a buld up of mildew. Also run a dishwashing packet like cascade(yes the stuff for the dishwasher) when you run the clean cycle. It is the same as the expensive washing machine cleaning packets that the appliance servicemen from sears sells to customers.

My washer smells really bad


your smell is comming from over soaping
a front load machine only needs 1 Tblsp of soap
any thing it builds up and rots thus the smell
get a crystal dish soap
1 cup run the machine empty a full cycle
now use trhe proper soap it will clean away

Husband mis filled ge profile washer dispeser. can we use mixed solution or should we throw it out


Did he overfill the soap dispenser with extra automatic dishwasher soap or with something else? If it is just automatic dishwashing soap then maybe run the cycle with no dishes in it on heavy wash. Now if he filled it with regular dishwashing soap clean out as much of it as you can then run the washer without dishes. If you leave regular soap in there your kitchen will be filled with bubbles.

Water Leaking From Calypso, Won't Drain Completely


the bag type device is an overflow and should never have "water"in it, but it will get suds if you are using the wrong type of soap.
you need to use "HE" soap as it is a non-sudsing soap and thats why you are getting suds leaking from your unit.
just run the rinse and spin cycle until the suds are gone. then use the right type of soap and it will work properly with no leaks.
