Make sure you are using HE detergent in all water saver washers front or top load. and do not over use detergent as too many suds and the washer will not rinse properly.

once a month run a cleaning cycle through with bleach or a product called smellywasher it works well. also whirlpool has a product called affresh.

once you get the washer clean you need to clean the clothes , use arm and hammer washing powder
not soda or smellywasher at smellywasher.com, some independent appliance stores sell it also.
otherwise you are just putting clothes full of bacteria into the washer and the smell comes back.

also recomended by the manufacturers is to wipe the door boot with a disenfenctant wipe and leave the door or soap cup slightly open to allow more air flow when you are done washing.

Smelly washing machine


put some bleach in the washer and run a rince wash (nothing in the washer) then run 3 more rince washes to clear out all traces of bleach before you put any closes in it,(or do a hot white wash only) this should work ok, when not in use all ways leave the door open if you can to change the air inside your washer it stops them smelling

My washer smells. I bought the product "Smelly washer", have tried bleach and wipe down the inside. I do see pink stuff inside when I wipe it down. Can I get the gasket off? HOw/

Fortunately there is a pretty easy fix. There are products that work great in cleaning out the hidden area that the odors come from. I have put some information on this together, follow the link below to see how to resolve, let me know if is helpful.

Odor inside the machine


Hi,

Odor in the machine or clothes is a common problem with front loading machines that use a small amount of water. Fortunately there is a solution. There is a couple of cleaning products out there that work great to help this.

- Affresh
- Smelly Washer

They can be found where you buy detergent. I have found the Affresh to work the best but have heard great things about Smelly Washer too.

Here is a link to a page I put out that tells a bit more. Let me know if this was helpful to you.

Thanks

MY newerfront load lg machine smells like mildew leaving clothes


Front load washers are very efficient but can create odors not common in top load machines. I would suggest running a cleaner such as Affresh or Smelly washer through the machine, there are instructions on the containers but basically you run a load without clothes on the hottest settings. This will help eliminate the mildew that gets caught between the tub and basket. A treatment once a month will do wonders!

You can purchase these at Target, Lowes or grocery stores near the laundry soaps.

SMELLY WASHER


pouring .5 cups of bleach directly into the machine works great for me. I have tried other techniques, but they all failed. (I HIGHLY RECOMMEND WASHING A LOAD OF WHITES AFTER THIS JUST TO BE ON THE SAFE SIDE!)
