It is recommended that all washing machines are cleaned every 3 to 6 months. How you do this is fill approx 10-15mls of WHITE vinegar directly into the drum not the soapbox and run a boil wash with no load

Kenmore 2600 TOP LOADER smells like Mildew. I can hear water sloshing around under drum. Is that Normal?


The drain on all washers have this issue. Unless the drain hose runs down hill, when the pump stops, water runs back into the machine that was in the hose but was not drained.

Bad odor in refrigerators...


Many face the problem of bad odor in refrigerators. Here are few simple tricks to get the problem of bad odor solved:

  1. Keep an open box of baking soda inside the fridge it will absorb the foul smell.
  2. Place newspaper made into balls all over your fridge and freezer so that it is completely covered.Spray the newspaper with water until it is completely wet.
  3. Allow the fridge to run as normal for five days. During this time, the combination of evaporating water and paper will soak up the nasty smell. It should be noted that you will have to turn your freezer to the lowest setting to avoid getting frozen.
  4. Buy some freshly ground coffee.Dump 1 to 2 cups of the coffee grounds on a large plate and spread them around. Use multiple plates if the smells are extreme.Place the plate on the center shelf.Close the refrigerator for 24 to 48 hours.Dispose of the coffee grounds.
  5. Cut a lemon in half and put it in there - it will absorb the smells and make it clean smelling.
  6. Last but not least ....Empty contents of fridge wipe out with warm water and a little lemon juice then cover a tray or plate with kitchen foil and fill with charcoal put in fridge over night and the charcoal absorb es all nasty ouders then in morning remove plate or tray.It should have no smells at all.
Thank you for this opportunity t post few tips which i know. I think all the above are home made tips and anyone can try it out who are facing the problem of bad odor in their refrigerator..

We have a 1 horse power carrier split type a/c and the smell is nasty coming from a/c? also smells when it isn't running- smells like something dead .


Generally if an a/c smells nasty then there is a problem with the drain and the water is
making it's way elsewhere. I would be checking for damp walls , base mold and carpet
in adjacent walls and closets. Make sure the unit is draining properly (power off for servicing)
It is possible that a critter may be to blame but rather rare. Hope this helps.

Really bad smell from drum?


Power off the mains. The filter is located behind the silver plate at the back of the machine at the bottom. Four screws hold it on. Drain out all the water. The filter is inside the big black rubber hose attached between the pump and the main drum. Remove the plastic clip holding it to the pump unit and then the metal cir clip holding it to the main drum. Inside is a white molded cone and a big white ball which floats. You will find a lot of junk here, clean out thoroughly. To refit put white cone back inside just as you found it, at the bottom, fit ball back into the cone. Attach to the bottom to the drum and re-fasten the cir clip. Finally reconnect the hose to the pump unit and tighten the plastic clip. Check out the pump too before reconnecting. Being the first time you shd note what you doing, what goes where. You certainly don't need techs for this; and techs who come are useless anyway.

Strong plastic smell and taste on a new Keurig Platnum coffee mak


I had the same problem and I discovered that after running 3 resevoirs full of water through the machine at 192 degrees , it got rid of the plastic smell. Set the cup size at the largest size mug and then just open the lid and close it , hit brew and let it fill the cup. Dump the water in the sink and repeat until you go through at least 3 resevoirs. The smell should be gone by then.
