ODOR COMING FROM UNIT
If your front load washer has an odor or buildup, this can normally be resolved by performing some of the following troubleshooting and maintenance:
If you are using too much detergent, or non-HE detergent is being used, the machine will not wash properly. Excessive suds decrease the tumbling action, and cause your clothing not to rinse well. Furthermore, residue can buildup in the washer causing an odor.
All front load washers require regular maintenance to maintain optimum performance. If this maintenance is not performed, residue can accumulate in the drum which can also result in an odor from your machine.
It is necessary to perform regular maintenance on your unit at least once a month. There are small amounts of water left in front load washers at the end of the cycle, which over time will cause an odor inside your unit if maintenance is not performed.
Occasionally, it may be necessary to use a tub cleaner product on your washer. 3rd party manufacturers have developed products specifically to help deodorize and sanitize the drum of a front load washer. These products can be used to give your washer a thorough deep cleaning.
