Foul Smell from my GE Adora Washer..!

I get this stale smell from my washer whenever we open it to wash. I have just cleaned my lint trap thanks to what I read on another thread and found about 2 dollars in change and much more. After cleaning this I still have that old water stale smell in the washer. Any help would be appreciated it. Thanks in Advance

    I have the same problem. I have to dry out the rubber rim after a day of washing and leave the washer open to air out for a few hours. I hate this washer and I could just throw it out of the window. I am too busy to baby sit this defective junk everyday. About once a month I run a empty hot bleach load and clean the filter. Another problem is we have to unscrew the cover to get to the filter. I tell every one I meet not to buy this junk. The next time I would suggest a LG.

Having the same problem as everyone else , I make a habit of cleaning the filter once a month. I would like to advise people that if your load is heavy (such as scatter rugs) they will not spin out completely even when the filter is cleaned. No more GE for me!!

Front loaders are known for bad odors. Run an empty cycle with double bleach and let the machine totally dry out, with the door OPEN. The bleach will kill the mold spores and letting it dry out will prevent more from forming.

Whirlpool now has cleaning tablets to take the smell out washers. They say they are for HE front load machine but it works on all machines. They are called affresh washer tablets. Just buy some and put all three tablets in the tub with hot water and let the washer go through a cycle with just the tablet(no clothes). By putting all three in the washer at one time it will kill the smell. For later use the package is a three month supply. They cost under 10 dollars.

WHIRLPOOL DUET FRONTLOAD WASHER


I had similar problem, the front door seal can trap small items,socks,handtowels. I didnt figure this out for some months, each load of clothes had a foul, mildew smell, Check door seal for trapped clothes, run intermittent cycles with bleach only, no clothes, be sure to leave door open when not in use to air out , this will reduce smell.
