A bad odour smell after each wash


check that the gray flexible waste oulet goes as high as it can b4 dropping back down onto waste connection. if the flex comes off your sink trap and drops straight down, food waste from your sink can back up into machine causing smell.

When I open the door of my wash machine it smells bad. What would cause this? Is there a lent trap with lent in it, causing this? If so were is the lent trap? Matag Neptune Washer.


Hi dear.I'm bit foreign to this model of Maytag.There for I do not know exactly where is the lint filter on it (Refer it's user manual)but I can help with the Bad Odour.If you are doing COLD WASH most of the time with your washer bad odour happens because of body oil & some other deposits(residue) left or sticks the drum after each wash.Cold wash cause that & if it gets worst mould problem going to start up.That's why you have to run the machine empty on Hottest Cotton wash cycle with some bleach every 6-8 weeks to get rid off residue.You'll see the difference.I hope that helps.Thanks.

Nasty odour coming from inside machine even after numerous cleans with hot water, detergents, vinegar and bicarb of soda.These were done individually over quite a period of time but the smell still...


you may need to remove the inner wash tub and access the outer tub to clean out all the spent soap,detergent,fabric softener that hasn't been drained during previous washes and have now created a sewage mold from just sitting there,also make sure all the drain hoses and the pump are clear and there are no hoses kinked all the way to the drain

Smelly washing machine and washed clothes


This is usually because of a bacteria build up on the machine. Suggested actions: Remove and thoroughly clean the soap tray. Remove the waste pipe from the drain pipe you have it poked into and ensure that all is clean and emptied. If your machine has a filter (Usually behind a 4 inch square door on the front towards the bottom of the machine if one is fitted - this depends on the machine and I'm sorry, I'm not familiar with your madel). Finally, take 2 or 3 DISHWASHER TABLETS put them in the machine's drum and wash at the highest temperature that your machine will allow. Modern biological washing powder uses bacteria to break down and "eat" stains. Bacteria creates unpleasant odours. Dish Washer tablets and powder is designed to kill bacteria. Hope this helps

Odour


Throw a dish towel and a cup full of baking soda in to a 'small load'. Run it through the first wash cycle but turn off before it hits 'Spin' or 'Rinse'.
Repeat several times.
This should get rid of most odours. If no joy, repeat the process using bleach or vinegar instead of (NOT combined with) the baking soda.

Samsung Front Load washer has odour


IMPORTANT: Read thoroughly. DO NOT add detergent or other laundry products to this cycle.
1. Remove all items from the washer.
2. Open the dispenser drawer and 2/3 cup (160 mL) of liquid chlorine bleach to the bleach compartment. DO NOT use more than 2/3 cup (160mL) of bleach per cycle as this will lead to product damage.
3. Close the washer door and dispenser drawer.
4. Select the Clean Washer cycle or a full wash cotton 104 F wash (40 C). DO NOT use any higher temperature as this will cause unnecessary fumes
5. Press Start and allow cycle to complete.
6. If the bad odour persists, repeat the procedure 1 or 2 more times. This may be necessary if this is the first time you have run this cycle.
7. After the cycle is complete, leave the door open slightly to allow ventilation and drying of the washer interior.
8. Repeat the cleaning procedure monthly.
To maintain the washer freshness:
1. Use only HE High Efficiency detergent.
2. Leave the door open after each cycle to for better ventilation and drying of the washer interior.
3. Use warm / hot water in your machine unless the fabric you are washing requires cold.
4. Use the correct amount of fabric softener.
5. If your laundry room is damp, use a dehumidifier.
6. Clean the door seal of visible residue.

WT540 Washing machine has a smell coming from it


Based on the front load picture you included with you description...

This usually comes from a build up of soap and dirt that you cannot get to to clean. It is in the inner wall of the outer tub.

You should run a thorough cleaning with a product called Washing Machine Magic. It is designed to reduce this build up over time.

Another way to reduce it is use a very hot wash and put 1 cup of powder dish detergent in the tub before starting it. (yes I know this is a clothes washer). The dish detergent has ingredients to help reduce the odour.

These methods may have to be repeated several times to be 100% effective, but a large part of the odour should be reduced after the first cycle. If more are needed repeat once every couple of weeks until the odour is not noticeable.

The rubber door seal on this model should not accumulate smell but it may have depending upon the machine's age. This will have to be replaced if it has.

Bad Odour from Drum


The smell that you are getting is stale soap build up between the inner drum and outer tub caused by frequent use of low temp progs. to remedy this problem do a 90 degree prog with some old towels this will melt the old soap, if you still have the problem add some soda crystals and do the 90 degree wash again failing this your drain hose may be to low causing dirty water from the sink to back drain in to the w/m, raise level of drain hose. hope this is of some help murdozzz
