Hi,

My solution to this is... Go to Asda (If there's one close to home) and look for Dr Beckmans Service It. This is exactly £2.92 at Asda

pour some of the mixture onto a cloth, then wipe the door seal thoroughly, then wipe thoroughly after rinsing the cloth.

pour 1 caps worth of the mixture into the sink or bowl and leave the detergent dispenser in the water/mixture for 30 minutes.

pour the remains of the mixture down the dispenser then put the machine on a 60 degree cottons was with no detergent or laundry in. then leave the machine to complete the cycle.

Hopefully this will rectify your problem

Hi there, sorry I don't have a solution to your problem but I just wanted to say I have the same problem. I thought I was going mad, all my clothes stink when they come out of the dryer and sometimes they're still really damp. Ithought it was just me and I've even changed all my washing powders etc. If you do find a way to solve the problem can you let me know. Many thanks. Lelly2003

SMELLY washing machine

First i hope you have cleaned out your filter. For the smell: Switch from liquid to powder detergent, no fabric softner, not necessary. Clean the big gasket with detergent and run a half load (without clothes of course) very hot cycle with 2 cups of vinegar only. Leave the door open whenever possible. This helps in drying out your washer and preventing mildew. Shut your wall water valve after your wash

My washing mchine has a mildew odour all the time for last month, its a year old WHY? please

this smell is caused by mold and mildew that has formed on the upper part of the outer drum -- the main cause of this is the suds in the wash tend to rise above the normal water line and never get rinsed away properly. so to get rid of the smell --- run a empty load of hot water ( hot/hot ) and when the cycle starts - add to the water 1/2 cup of white vineger and 1/2 cup of bleach, also add ( using a small container ) some more hot water to the machine to bring the water level up to a higher then normal height,,, let the machine complete the full wash cycle. now if the smell is still kinda there -- repeat the whole cleaning thing one more time,,, this should remove all traces of mold and mildew that has built up and you should notice a huge difference. to keep this from happening again,, try not to use so much detergent in the wash and after you wash your clothes - leave the lid wedged open slightly to let air into the unit so moisture can escape,, this will prevent mold from growing because the machine will dry out fully.
now at least once a month do this cleaning with the vinegar and bleach and you will never have this problem again.

Washer makes clothes smell like dog

Hello there:
please follow these simple steps
Instructions Things You'll Need:
  1. Step 1 Balance your washing machine. Standing water breeds mildew and mold. A washing machine that isn't level to the ground stands a higher chance of not draining completely. Take a level and place it on the top of the machine along the front from side to side and then again along the side from front to back. If the machine is very off, you can adjust the feet to compensate or add something under one of the feet if it is not flat against the ground. Portable washing machines are especially prone to have standing water because they are moved around and not leveled each time.
  2. Step 2 Promptly remove your clothes at the end of a wash cycle. If you regularly leave the damp clothes in the washing machine for an extended period at the end of the cycle, you will have mildew in your clothes and your machine. The same is true if you put clean clothes in the dryer and they are not completely dry when the cycle ends and you don't go back for a few days to pull them out. Damp clothes in an enclosed space for days will mildew.
  3. Step 3 Leave your washing machine door open in between uses which gives the machine the opportunity to fully dry out.
  4. Step 4 Use white distilled vinegar in an empty machine. Run a load with only hot water and two cups of vinegar to clean out the machine and freshen the scent. Vinegar naturally eliminates odors and reduces the buildup of soap residue in the washer which contributes to mildew development. You can also add baking soda and/or bleach to the load for both their sanitizing properties as well as assisting in ridding the smell of mildew.
  5. Step 5 Regularly use vinegar when you wash your clothes. Add 1 cup of white distilled vinegar to the last rinse cycle. Vinegar has acidic properties but it is mild enough that it will not harm your fabric. It does dissolve alkalines in laundry detergent which makes for cleaner and softer clothes. The reduction of detergent buildup in your machine will help to also reduce the incidence of mildew.
  6. Step 6 If you have a front load washer, they are particularly prone to mildew and mold. Follow the manufacturers suggestion as to how much and what type of detergent should be used. It is generally less than the traditional top load washing machines. Once again, additional soap residue helps to breed mold and mildew. Also, pull the seals back from around the door and make sure there isn't a build up underneath them that needs to be cleaned out.
  7. Step 7 Finally, if you have done all of the above and nothing seems to work there are commercial products available that are recommended.

Same problem with our LG Tromm

I had the same problem with my LG Tromm and was ready to throw away every one of my towels they were so rank smelling. As a last resort I filled the detergent area with one cup of white vinegar and ran a load through on hot. Then I washed them with just a tablespoon at most of detergent. They came out smelling fine, the mildew smell was completely gone. How long it will last, I don't know.

I also read somewhere recently that we all use way too much detergent in our washers and dishwashers. And surprise, surprise, the post went on to say that too much detergent in your towels/clothes can leave a musty, mildewy smell in them.

Now when I do laundry, no matter what it is, I use about 1/4 of the amount of detergent called for, even though the HE uses so much less. In all, maybe 1-2 Tbsp, and everything comes out just as clean.

Also, try using a product from Clorox just for front loading washing machines. It's Clorox Washing Machine cleaner...it seemed to help with the overall smell. And I agree, I will never buy this particular machine again.

Machine smells mouldy- washing stinks!

Find out where your filter is; it is at the end of the thick hose coming down from the bottom of your tub; open up and clean out. Another possibility is there could be something stuck in your drum, feel if you could locate it. Next clean out the hoses in machine. After all this flush out with a hot wash, without clothes. People shd ask the service man where the filter is. If he knows that is.......................It gives you the biggest problem if you dont check.

Clothes have a musty smell if left in the washer

Make shure to do a cleaning cycle. As well, wipe out the inside, the rubber gasket and the door when done washing for the day. We also have found that
leaving the door "Open" for several hours, when finnished, eliminates any future
smells.
