Question about Whirlpool GHW9100L Front Load Washer
My washer is just about a year old. After the first few weeks, we began to nice a really bad moldy smell coming out of the washer. I dug around and found a bunch of socks that has gotten stuck in the lip of the seal. They stunk and were moldy so I pulled them all out (and threw them away). Then I ran the washer with bleach (emtpy) and sprayed the entire seal with X-14. The smell went away but it's back! We've tried more bleach cycles, more mold remover stuff and we leave the doo open...it still smells like mold! And, now there's mold growing (black spots) on the rubber seal. Help! I have the same problem, it started out with our colored towels smelling but know it's all of our clothes. Our laundry room smells horrible. We were told the same thing to use Affresh, that didn't work. I'm sick and tired of this and am ready to buy another washer. Please help if anyone can figure this out I want to get rid of the smell in our clothes especially.
Thanks for your suggestion about looking in the lip of the seal. I found one of my three year old granddaughters socks. Also, the seal for very dirty so I mixed a 50% solution and 50% solution of chlorox and used an old towel rag to wipe and wash throughly around the lip seal.
I noted that the aluminum ring inside the washer had also accumulated a lot of dirt. With one hand and fingers I held the wet cholorx towel inside the ring and with the other hand spun the tub around several turns until I had removed all the dirt and grime.
It did have a moldy smell. I'll let you know if this fixed the problem.
