BURNT RUBBER ODOR
Slight burning rubber odor when drying or steaming
■ Smell of burnt rubber during Dry or Steam cycle can be noticed as the inside temperature
increases up to 100°C so rubber gasket around door gets heated.
■ For any cycle requiring high temperature water (usually above 60°C), the front loading washing
machine uses a water heater therefore, the exterior risks getting hot as the temperature inside
the tub rises.
How to fix
■ Smell of burnt rubber will gradually go away as the rubber gasket seal becomes more malleable
■ Washing machine risks get hot during operation. That’s normal.
