Clean your machine by using a cotton wash at 85'C without anything in it, and with no detergent.
Also, empty the coin-trap at the bottom left (front of the machine).
Also, remove the detergent drawer, clean by hand. While the drawer is out clean the dispenser area with mildew cleaner.
You can also try using Sodium Metabisulphite (see a homebrew shop). Avoid using bleach as it damages the stainless steel.
In between washes you can leave the inner door slightly ajar to allow it to dry out between washes.

I have a LG front loading direct drive washing machine (WM1812CW) that is 5 years old that is making a loud knocking noise during the spin cycle and is emitting a burnt smell after the cycle ends. ...


It seems you need to have a new sealing rubber fitted. IN THE MEANTIME, if the knocking happens again when the spin starts, stop the machine, let the washing drop to rest, and then start it again, the re-positioning of the fabric inside the drum should even out. Also, do not load with say.. only towels, that way the weight is one sided and will make the drum spin in an uneven way.

After I dry my clothes, I smell this dead animal smell. Thought it might be a dead animal, but could it be the ring around the drum that is burnt? My clothes now dry smell stinky. We took it all apart...


thats the mold and mildew on the bellow that you are smelling. thoroughly clean the bellow. i also suggest that you purchase a tablet called affresh. this will help to remove that smell. if your machine does not have a self clean cycle then just put the tablet in and do a regular wash. if you machine has a clean cycle, just put tablet in and set on clean cycle. I also recommend that after each load you thoroughly wipe off the bellow and leave the door open for about 30 minutes so that machine can air out.

Musty smell


Run your machine through its cycle with NO clothes and when it is filling up with water put bleach in the water. Put bleach in only at the start of cycle.
Before you do this clean all inside parts the best you can yes with bleach and you can run something like fleecy to make clothes soft and smell nice when you wash your clothes as well. Our machine has a special holder to put softener in.
Do NOT have clothes in when running the heavy bleach through it. This should kill the bacteria .

Washer smells bad


Whirlpool and Tide make a cleaner that you put into the washer and run it through a cycle. Front loaders get a build-up that cannot be cleaned by hand. Make sure you are using a detergent that is marked "HE". Do not overfill the detergent or softener cups. I've heard that other used a lot of bleach in a wash cycle to clear out the smell. Bleach is bad to use if you're on a septic system, though.

Machine smells mouldy- washing stinks!


Find out where your filter is; it is at the end of the thick hose coming down from the bottom of your tub; open up and clean out. Another possibility is there could be something stuck in your drum, feel if you could locate it. Next clean out the hoses in machine. After all this flush out with a hot wash, without clothes. People shd ask the service man where the filter is. If he knows that is.......................It gives you the biggest problem if you dont check.

Clothes have a musty smell if left in the washer


Make shure to do a cleaning cycle. As well, wipe out the inside, the rubber gasket and the door when done washing for the day. We also have found that
leaving the door "Open" for several hours, when finnished, eliminates any future
smells.

Dirty washing


Does your washer smell? Is your rubber door seal gungy too?

If so then use 1/2 cup of Washing Soda Crystals (50p for a 1kg bag from most supermarkets)
set washer to 60 degree wash and run machine for full hot cycle with no clothes in it... just the Washing Soda.
I did this with my washer which literally reeked, and my friends have since done theirs and the results are amazing...
Go and check your drain when you finish too... mine sparkles now and it was gunged up before.. I now add a desertspoon of Washing Soda to every wash.... I place it in the crease of the door seal and little by little all the mould is disappearing, even though the hot wash cleaned the gunge the black spots remained. My washer smells so clean now and no more black flecks on the clothes either... (these are loose gunge from the outer drum, right inside the works of your machine...)

All the best

Musty smell, but can't tell from where


I have the same problem with a 3 month old ge front loading washer.after 1 month it started off smelling musty..I thought it was my imagination, now at 3 months old our clothes smell so bad I think we might just have to buy new clothes! everytime I wash a load the clothes smell worse and now you can even smell it just walking into our closet 2 floors up. A new washing washing machine should NOT be doing this! so far leaving the door open in between washes has helped a little but I plan on tipping it back and finding the hidden filter today. Isn't it lovely that they don't mention a filter that needs monthly cleaning or it's location in the manuals?!

Water not draining completely after cycle ends


First of all, is your drain hose connected to a kitchen sink or into a standpipe? If its a sink make sure you form a loop or curve in the hose as high as possible above the sinks own waste(plug hole) ,to ensure water cannot travel from sink back into machine. If this is not the case then your water pump, or the rubber pipe coming to the pump has definately got some kind of obstruction inside. Your washing machine has not emptied properly since it filled up at the beginning of the cycle,and has not got rid of the soapy water enough to enable a true rinse.Hence the detergent smell on clothes... Turn off power at plug socket.Take drain hose out of stand-pipe (or connection to sink waste)and drop this hose into a washing up bowl or similar at floor level,to drain off as much water as possible before disconnecting hose to pump or checking the pumps impellar to discover the blockage..Lets know how u get on,good luck.
