Keeping this in consideration, how do I get rid of the smell from my washing machine?
Bring out the vinegar. Pour two cups of white vinegar into the drum, then run a normal cycle at high heat—without any clothes, of course. The baking soda and vinegar should break up any residue stuck to your drum and kill any mold that might be present. They'll also help remove any foul odors.
Subsequently, question is, how do I get rid of the smell in my front loader washing machine? Use a hot water or cleaning cycle.
- Pour two cups of white vinegar into the detergent dispenser and run a hot water or cleaning cycle.
- You can also use a commercial washing machine cleaner such as Smelly Washer, but vinegar is more cost effective and just as efficient.
why does my washer smell like sewage?
Most likely, the smelly washer is a sign of plumbing problems, and that's where EcoClean can help. Run a load of hot water through the washing machine (without clothes). Add a cup of distilled white vinegar to the load. This restores water to evaporated drain traps, which releases sewer gas.
Why does my top load washer smell?
Top Load Washer Odor in Tub. Washer odors (like mildew) are usually caused by leaving the washer lid closed when not in use. This does not allow air to circulate and dry out the moisture remaining in the tub area. The air and moisture mixture becomes stagnant and creates an odor.
