Default Whirlpool Duet MOLD SMELL
Model Number: GHW9400PL4   Brand: Whirlpool   Age: 1 - 5 years

Whirlpool washing machine discharge water smells very bad and clothes always have mold smell. Serviceman came over and cleaned out a filter on the bottom of the washer and that didn't help, I run the bleach through it and also use the AFFRESH nothing seems to help. It smell so bad I have to close the door to the laundry room and open the window.

How many times did you use Affresh? If there is a such heavy smell then one or two times maybe not enough. Also keep the washer door ajar when it's not in use for better ventilation.

Just another thought, make sure your drain hose isn't down in the drain pipe too far. It can cause a siphon effect pulling some of the dirty water back inside the pump.
