We purchased a kenmore high efficiency washing machine. after the second load, we get a sewer smell in the other part of the house.do you have any suggestions?


There may be a venting problem with the sewer lines. These machines expel water very fast and at higher pressures than other types of machines. This can cause suctioning of water from drain traps if there is improper or clogged venting of the sewer lines. Have the sewer lines checked by someone knowledgeable about proper venting practices.

Sewer smell in clothes


The tub is probably pretty dirty. Try cleaning the washer with CLR.

Washing machine sewer odor


The drain pipe that your drain hose goes into is more than likely the problem. The drain pipes should have a p trap which looks kind of like an S- shape the water stays in the trap preventing the smell from backing into your home . If there is none, install one.

Beat way to solve this problem is, Run your machine on the highest setting and add a cup of bleach, do the same again and add a cup of vinegar, this will clean the inside of your machine and give the water inlets a good clean out. Repeat as necessary.

Odor coming from washing machine - smells like sewer gas


The odor coming from your washing could indicate a problem with your
hot water heater or possibly your city's cold water supply line.
In some cases the odor might be originating from the drain located adjacent to
the washing machine. During long periods of inactivity, if no water is flushed
down the drain, a sewer smell will be emitted from the drain. To alleviate
this condition, just flush water down the drain.
I hope this helps you solve your problem.

When machine pumps out the smell comes through the sink


All plumbing drains whether under a sink or the stand pipe drain, for a washer, are required by LAW to have a trap to prevent the sewer gases from entering a home.

Sewer gases are dangerous in many ways, not the least of which is the terrible smell. Sewer gas can build up and if allowed to accumulate near an appliance that operates on gas (LP or natural) can combust and cause a fire and/or an explosion.

Yes, if you can do the installation youself, do it ASAP, or contact a licensed plumber and have installed a proper drain trap for the sink and also make sure the drain that the washer is draining into, also has a trap in it.

This will have a profound impact on the smell and will help alleviate foul odors from your sewer lines.

Hope you found this Very Helpful and best regards!

Laundry room smells like rotten eggs


Does the sewer drain line have a trap at the bottom that prevents sewer gas from entering the room? If the smell seems to be coming from the washer itself, run a wash cycle empty with a cup of baking soda, detergent and hot water to clean the interior.

I have a Kenmore washing machine and so far I haven't have a problem with it...the problem is that most of the time when we do laundry a horrible sewer smell comes out. It doesn't seem to be coming from...


You are probably correct with the idea the sewer smell is not coming from the washer but rahter then drain line. Was this recently installed or has a slow drain down the pipe? There is suppose to be what is called a P-trap installed in the drain pipe to restrict the gases from coming back into your home. Check the drain line. If I can help further, I am here. Eric Campion
