My Duet washer stinks so much. The wash does not come out smelling good. It is clean but it doesn't smell good. I do use those cleaning tablets but it still stinks. It has over-suds many times where...


I have found that using a l/4scoop of oxi cleaner any brand will do along with my regular wash detergent helps keep the odor under control . I leave my door open to the washer when not in use. Occasionally I will clean under the gasket with a mild cleaner. Remember the front loaders use less water and therefor less detergent. Good luck.

Our front end loader stinks and we have to leave the door open. We have the exact same problem where I work. How do you get the smell out?


The filter on your pump is probably clogged with lint and stuff. You have to remove the bottom front panel, 3 torx screws underneath. The panel will drop and come off. Drain off the excess water from the hose you see. The white filter cover is right in front. Get yourself a bunch of towels or a good big plastic bag to collect water. Unscrew the filter cover and twist the filter out. Clean out all the stuff and put it back in carefully.

Next: You can use Affresh to clean your front loader. Deposits of soap and other such things can be stuck around the inside tub of your washer. Try this product, it works great on all front loaders. Use hot water with the Affresh pellet with no clothes and run the machine through a cycle. Also helps with any stagnant water smells. Have you cleaned out your pump lately. Put the pellet inside the machine, not in the soap dispenser.
Pl give me a good rating for the free help, thanks.

You can use Affresh to clean your front loader. Deposits of soap and other such things can be stuck around the inside tub of your washer. Try this product, it works great on all front loaders. Use very hot water with the Affresh pellet with no clothes and run the machine through a cycle. Also helps with any stagnant water smells. Put the Affresh pellet inside the machine, not in the soap dispenser.

My GE Adora front loader- our clothes stink!


Clothes washing rules for mildew stink: 1) never leave clothes in machine for more than a few hours 2) never add too many detergent or clothes 3) clean the machine itself. Also if your fabric softener port is gummy there is a good chance you got some funk from that so clean all places where you have fabric softener contact. After all that, if this doesn't help you may need to run an empty load of strong hot bleach water and follow it with a hot empty rinse then a load of whites
to becareful not to ruin your colored clothes

I have a smelly Frigidaire front loader HE washer.


Front load washers have a front panel that is general held on with 3 screws at the bottom that you can not see. There should be one on each corner and one in the middle once you remove these screws the panel drops down and you will find a white plastic cap that has a hose running to it and from it. If you twist that open with a bucket or something to catch the water that has been left in the machine, you will find that it is a filter that pulls out and it is usually full of stuff. Clean that out and replace and see if it will fill and drain, if not the pump is not working and needs to be replaced.
