What should I do if my washing machine smells?

If your washing machine stinks, don’t worry, you’re not alone. Washer mildew and odors are one of the most common complaints among homeowners. However, it is possible to get rid of smell through a few simple steps. changing your washing habits and detergent used may be necessary to keep odor away.

A cleaner, such as Smelly Washer or Towel Cleaner, that can be used with laundry is best to use.  The added bulk of the clothing will raise the water level to include the “splash area” just above the normal waterline where suds and soiled water accumulate and don’t get rinsed out.  The splash area is almost invariably the area of worst buildup and can become quite thick after years of buildup.  Cleaning cycles don’t reach the splash area and worse cases may need repeated cleaning and soaking to remove.  Returning or persistent odor in your washer or laundry is a sign of remaining residue.
