There is a musty oder coming from inside washing machine.
Dump in a gallon of white vinegar, fill with water, highest setting, after it goes through that setting, turn it off and let it set in the washer for about 30 minutes (use hot water).
Then put it on another wash cycle and then go to the rinse and spin. This should remove the order, and you should leave the door open when not in use.

My washer takes about 1-1/2 hours to wash one load
Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
A few questions first-
Have you noticed a particular cycle taking longer? Is the hot water supply, if it has a separate one, as hot as it used to be- the washer then having to spend more time heating? Do the drum speeds seem correct to you, particularly spinning?
Having asked those questions I have just realized that it could be taking longer than normal to drain water at the end of each cycle so I am going to suggest you follow my general guidance notes on checking the drain motor lint tray/filter and the motor's operation. It's something which should be carried out on a regular basis anyway ;-0)
Sorry but I do not know your particular machine BUT I would suggest as a first step that you clean the drain motor lint tray/filter. So many 'faults' are caused by blocked filters. The motor is unable to drain all of the water in the allotted time.
If you are unsure where the filter is, it is often behind the front lower (kick) panel (or in some machines at the rear in an awkward position!) and held in by a round cover/knob.
REMOVE POWER AND ENSURE YOU HAVE A WATER RECEPTACLE/RAGS TO SOAK UP THE WATER WHICH IS BOUND TO POUR OUT!
It's surprising what people have found in theirs! It is always worthwhile checking it on a regular basis.
Now- whilst the filter is removed it is normally possible to see the drain motor and ensure it is not jammed by a foreign object such as a needle or a toothpick. It should be able to be turned by hand/finger- the power IS OFF!
At this point it is also possible to test if the motor works. No clothes or water in the machine, select a spin cycle and put the power back on. You should be able to see the motor turning at some point, possibly straight away. If it doesn't work then the motor is malfunctioning!
Hope the filter is the problem and good luck!

Our washer will turn on, but door will not lock or
I'm trying to find the solution to the solution to this problem. Hopefully you can reach your outlet plug the washer is plugged into. Hopefully you can reach this every time you need to run a cycle.
If you unplug and then plug in the washer, you will be able to run your cycle.
I'll do my best to post once I find a more permanent solution to this problem.

Washer will not start power on press start it
Hi, the 5.9 display means the washing machine capacity (5.9 cu. ft.)
You seems to have a defective lid switch.
If the lid switch is defective, your washer can't spin and may not function at all. The switch is inside the washing machine main housing near the door frame. Often you have to raise or open the top or front of the washer to get to the switch. If it's defective, you need to replace it.
Some machines have a special lid-switch fuse near the lid switch, inside the control panel. If this fuse blows, the unit won't fill with water until you replace the fuse.

All front loaders have to be run thru a clean cycle with no clothes or soap atleast Twice a month. You can use bleach or buy one of the special cleaners they have for washers.
