Question about Whirlpool Duet GHW9150P Front Load Washer
Can you advise on how to get ride of sour smell inside whirlpool duet front loader? I check that there was not any items caught inside the rubber door seal.
At the risk of being rude... it's not your washer that is causing the problem it's your washing habits. Jeff is "right on the money" when he stated water temperature is important. It's fine to use mainly cold water but it makes preventive maintenance very important. A hot soak or wash as your last cycle on was day will help dissolve and flush out residue. Just as important is the amount of detergent used and use of fabric softener. To remove odor from your washer and laundry the "splash area" just above the normal waterline must be cleaned. This is invariably the area of heaviest buildup of odor-causing residue. To clean the splash area add 1 or 2 caps of smelly washer cleaner to a full load of laundry and wash in a hot setting. The added bulk of the laundry will raise the water level to include the splash area. Intermittently pause to soak for more extreme cases.

lot of machines can suffer from this problem. It is
usually down to a bacteria build up between the drum and the tub. The
of appliances that suffer form this have been used mainly on 40 degree
and with a biological detergent.
The best way to get rid of this smell is to place two tablespoons of washing soda or soda crystals in the detergent drawer and then run the appliance empty on the 90 degree wash. You may have to repeat this treatment before the smell goes but it will go eventually. Hope you've checked out & cleaned your filter.
You can give me an excellent rating for the help, can't you? Thanks

Residual water sits inside the wash tub under the stainless steel basket and in the drain lines & drain pump. This is normal. If you are in the habit of using very few hot water cycles and do not leave the washer door open when not in use, bacteria, mold and mildew can build up and cause the sour smell you are experiencing. The following link provides some good info on how to prevent these odors:
You may also want to remove the drain pump reservoir and check to see if you have anything caught. Sometimes debris can build up in the drain pump and cause odors. The following link explains how to check the drain pump:
I personally own a front loader such as yours and have never had a problem with odors by following this simple advice. Occasionally run a sanitary cycle with nothing but bleach in the water. For washers with no santitary cycle, run it on the hottest setting you have. Sorry...front loaders require a bit more TLC than conventional top loaders. I hope this helps you. If you have questions, please let me know.
