Of course, before you go to the experts, you need to perform some procedures for which you do not need help. To clean your washing machine from odor, follow the algorithm.


The first thing to check is whether your washing machine is heating water. This is easy to do, while washing at 60 degrees, touch the hatch of the washing machine. In the case of an upright machine, set the shortest wash to the highest temperature and after spinning, touch the laundry. If it is warm then the washer is heating the water.


Next, check the drain filter, to see if there is a clog. It is located at the bottom of the washer, on the front panel. It is easy enough to unscrew.


The hatch cuff can also create an unpleasant odor. Therefore, if you observe mold on it, it is extremely difficult to get rid of it at home. Contact Chula Vista Appliance Repair Company to have the unit inspected by an expert to see if it can be cleaned or replaced.


Washing machine manufacturers offer professional cleaning and decalcifying products for sale. To get rid of odor in the washing machine, it is worth trying to clean the washing machine with such products. After cleaning, be sure to unscrew the filter and clean it.


If the above procedures did not help to get rid of the smell in the washing machine, then the problem lies deeper. In this case, you can’t do without professional help. The technician will need to check all the nodes to which there is external access without disassembling the washing machine. If there is no visible source of stink in the washing machine, it will be necessary to disassemble the washing unit – the tank.


Here is an example of the disassembly of the tank by our specialist after a customer’s complaint about the unpleasant smell from the washing machine:
