    Same problem. Will likely look for a $10 replacement valve and see if that sovles the problem. Only steps I have taken so far is to read web sites.

    Ours only fill a few inches after using the delicate cycle. Did anyone ever solve the problem?

Dont want to endorse a commercial site, but you can by a generic part for a bit over $10 for this problem, so do some seraching for a reasonable site (other sites are charging 40-50 dollars for a fill valve.

Stagnent water smell while filling


I found that running about a quart of white vinegar through a cycle with hot water and no clothes or detergent takes care of the musty smell. Vinegar removes detergent build-up.

Do you need to keep the door open when not being used. i know some models require that.


Hi,

There's no special requirement that you need to keep the door open. But, If you keep it closed after your done washing, some water is usually left behind and if you don't wash for a few days it could make the first few loads have a certain musty odor. I always leave the door open for a few days to dry out the insides then close the door and I haven't noticed the musty smell. Good luck.

Washer smells even after cleaning cycle


Hi,

It sounds like an air vent is either missing or clogged. That gurgling usually indicates some sy phoning action going on which is drawing water out of a gas trap. Hence you are getting sewer smell into the washer.


Thank you !!

I have always had a smell coming from my duet washer. I put bleach in and run it through a rinse cycle, but it always comes back


there may be some dirt or other things collecting in the drain boot attatch to the drain pump there is usually a plastic coin trap located inside the rubber boot his will cause a musty smell in the washer.as well as a moldy door boot seal.if the door boot is moldy it needs to be replaced.

Smell


One downfall of the front load machine that it holds moisture causing musty smell in drum. Try leaving door agar between washes and use a cleaner specific for front load smells 1 every month.

Musty smell on towels


I had this problem last year. I was not using HE detergent. The other detergent was causing soap scum to build up in the drain hoses. After they were cleaned (it took more than one time taking it apart and cleaning), and we started using HE detergent, it worked fien with no odor.
