Do a cycle and put a pack of unsweetened kool-aid lemonade flavor only in with it, this also works in diswashers...

Why is there a damp smell when I open the door?


Front load washing machines have to be hermetically sealed so they don't leak. Of course opposite of their top-loader cousins. :) In your case, Try cleaning the drum and the door seal and also remove any and all soap residue that you can find. Then try running an empty load with vinegar and/or Borax. You can try bleach, too if that doesn't work. When it's all clean and smells 'normal' again, be sure and keep the door cracked open when you're done using it from now on. Being closed and sealed all the time is why mold and mildew have grown, causing it to smell bad. I hope this helps! :) -Jason

Smells damp


There is a cleaning solution that needs to be run through your machine, routinely. This helps eliminate the smell issue. It only gets worse if you do not run the cleaner.

Strong musty damp smell - tried soda crystals, vinegar etc and nothing shifts it. any ideas?


Try a full bag of soda crystals on a hot wash...and then add them regulalrly. They are not a deodoriser but will help clear the gunk that is causing the smell. Bicarbonate of soda is a better deodoriser though.

Musty smell especially in towels


Once towels have had mold grow on them, it's unlikely you will ever get rid of that smell. You can usually tell a towel has had mold grow by discolorations on solid color towels. You probably need to start over with new towels, make sure they are washed and dried frequently and that they don't stay damp for long after showering. If you live in a humid climate, a towel warming rack will help with drying.

Washing Machine smell


The problem comes from the design of the front load washers. There is always a little water left in the tub after the machine is used. Running a bleach load will deal with the mildew until the machine is used again. I leave the door open when I am not using my washer, and this does help.

Clothes Smell Musty and Damp


It sounds like a build up of washing residue. Clean inside the door seal and do a very hot wash with a bit of washing powder and no clothes. Repeat this once a week until smell has gone.
