You should find the filter but that is not what is causing the smell. common causes of smell are:
using liquid detergent - this smells like drains if used for a long period and leaves a horrid sludge in the tub. put on a boil wash with no clothers and use powder detergent
plumbed in under the sink and there is also a waste disposal unit. these pong!
no water barrier between the drain of the washer and the house drains

What does e33 mean on a baumatic washing machine

not saying this is whats wrong with it i just found this on the internet............hi, you need to empty the filter, ours does the same all too often. The filter is located bottom right of the machine at floor level, which is rather daft for an integrated applicance; we have to remove a whole length of plinth to empty ours. Be warned, a lot of gunge and water will come out so have towels at the ready, especially if you have a laminated floor. Turn the white slot with a a 10p piece......and empty. Not the most pleasant of jobs, but effective. Good luck!

Hi, I have a baumatic BWMI 1206.1 washing machine. Once a cycle is started it never completes, I have to manually set to spin. Do you have any idea what could be wrong?

I'm not a washing machine repairman, but this sounds suspiciously like a worn-out or defective timer. Only guessing here, but perhaps (USD) $50 in parts plus the cost of the service call. This model seems to have a fairly good reputation and considering the cost of washing machines, I'd probably be inclined to have it professionally serviced. It doesn't sound like something you can fix yourself.

Also, most newer washers will not spin if the load of wet clothing is not balanced (evenly distributed) - of course you have likely checked this. Good luck

Hi, filter grip on my hotpoint bwd129 has snapped off trying to open it. Any ideas how I can now get it off? The machine was not spinning properly & started to smell awful. Thanks

You where headed in the right direction-something is stuck and is burning up the belt-check appaliance pro on line for filter lid-then drill it and drive a striaght blade screw driver into it cheers Denny

Hi, I have a hoover front loading washing machine and inside the drum seal there was a lot of mildew as I accidentally left some damp tea cloths inside the drum and the machine wasn't used for 2 weeks....

Run your washer with 2 cups of bleach, maximum hot water. After it starts agitating for a minute, stop the washer & let it remain for 2 hours. Then continue the wash.
