Question about Kenmore 24032\24036 Top Load Washer
What is making the washer smell???
What kind of smell is it? If I can guess, I think it may be a musty or "locker-room" (sorry for bad memories) smell. I have found that sometimes a change in detergent (or sometimes the same detergent you have been using for years) can cause build up and retain that musty smell. I had to actually remove a inner basket completely and wash out both inner and outer drums to get rid of the funky smell. She had used the same detergent for years. Do you wash a lot of clothes in cold water? This could also make the situation worse. Try running a full empty load on hot with a bunch of bleach through the wash cycle, then stop the unit for a bit and let it soak and see if it clears up. Also, try changing detergents and use a HE type soap. HE causes very little sudding action, which in turn will stop the build up. If this doesnt work, you may have to remove the inner tub and clean out both baskets (a lot of time, and need a special wrench, unless you know how to work it off). Let me know if this helps any. Jim
