For front load washers:
The washer has a bad odor.
The washer having a bad odor is caused by using too much detergent & fabric softener. Only use HE high efficiency detergents & softeners. The proper amounts of detergent to use is 4 TBLS for large loads & half size loads 2 TBLS. Fabric softener should be cut in half with water before going into the dispenser. This will cut down on odor on cloths & in the washer.
To clean out washer with bad odors we recommend the use of Whirlout. This is used to clean out soap scum build up. Directions for use is 1/4 cup of Whirlout. Set washer for hot water setting & run through normal cycles. For the first time do this 3 times in a row. Then use when needed. We find this to be the best answer for the problem.
To purchase Whirlout give us a call.
