Re: towels smell burnt after washing.
Are you sure the burnt smell is coming from the washer and not from the dryer? If you've placed a rubber backed rug or other similar article of clothing, it is not uncommon for that rubber backing to melt and get embedded in the heated duct of the dryer . Not sure this helps but if you can clarify the point at which the burnt smell is first observed that would help..

it's always worth replacing the brushes - pattern one's are cheap at around 20 quid so it's just about the cheapest thing to try and washing machines do all mannor of crazy things you wouldn't think were related - like not draining (the water does still drain out but when it hasn't spun properly the clothes are still full of water for instance) worn brushes have a differing effect on difrent washing cycles. the other thing to suspect is the controller -but these are so expensive you can nearly always buy a cheap washing machine for less
Sounds like the little flexible apron just in front of your washer drum has mildewed. Take a look and see if it is holding water, and look for mold while your'e at it. Use a good bathroom mold and mildew remover to kill the mess and deodorize it.
I started adding 1 cap of bleach with 1 cup of water to all my loads in the bleach dispenser and this stopped the smell problem with my sweaty clothes.Sour towels i fixed with using Win high performance sports detergent plus my usual dose of he detergent along with a 2nd rinse.Keep the lid open when not in use always.
remove bottom cover at back of machine, loosen large jubilee clip on hose between drum and pump. pull hose down and off, take out strainer basket and pull top off, clean top, ball and basket by running under tap. clean out hose with an old rag. reassemble strainer and put back into hose, in the correct position. fix hose back on to drum and tighten clip. run machine on a hot wash and all should be fine.
Try running an empty heavy duty wash cycle with a pint of vinegar added to the water, run wash cycle for two or three minutes then turn the machine off for thirty minutes then restart and let finish the full wash cycle
Don't use fabric softener. I had the same problem and read somewhere to stop using the fabric softeners. I don't know why but after about two cycles (they smelled really bad) it worked! I always used fabric softeners with out a problem but one day I just started getting REALLY smelly towels. I always take my wet wash out as soon as the cycle ends and dry it completely so I was surprised when they smalled so bad. Give it a try.
this is caused by a build up of old detergent and limescale.there are some industrial strength descalers around.wpro descaler is one.add the sachet to the drum with no wash load.pour in a kettle of hot water(not boiling)and leave for thirty minutes.then put washing machine on a 60 degree cycle and allow to run right through.you will need to repeat approximately every three months
the problem is your door seal if you close the door after a wash then what happens is the water goes mouldy on the inside of the door seal what you need to do is replace the door seal you will never get rid of the smell without replacing it never close the door after a wash always leave it open to make sure its your seal the easy way is to look at the inner part of the seal and it will be mouldy only thing you can do
