run the washer through its cycle with no clothes using only liquid lysol. if washing clothes only once a week you can do this every other week. if more then should be done once a week. this eliminated my problem:)

Affresh
According to the Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS) put out by Whirlpool they state that the ingredients are: Sodium Carbonate, Sodium Carbonate Peroxyhydrate (another name for sodium percarbonate), and Boric Acid. They further state that proportions of these ingredients are confidential. The MSDS further gives the pH as 10.5-10.7 with a 1% solution. Therefore it has the potential to corrode the aluminium of the spider should the required concentration be reached.
When all else has failed to get rid of the foul odours it has to be considered that the odours are originating from the build of ‘crud’ in the recesses of the spider. Even after the fastest spin small quantities of water and contaminants will remain in these recesses, on the shaft and on the spider. As the water evaporates the ‘crud’ will start to fester and smell. The only sure way of getting rid of it is to strip the drums down. Not an easy task for most people.

I used a cup of white vinegar when I had that problem a few months ago. I think it happened because I was using cold water all the time. Ran the vinegar on hot for one cycle and problem gone. I always leave the door open after washing and once a year clean out that trap, but only had the smell problem once. WP Duet model. I don't use that special HE soap because it is more expensive and the Arm and Hammer liquid soap does the job for us. 3-4 loads a week, 4 people.

I see mold inside the large rubber ring (the seal) at the opening of my washer and it's hard to scrub off, even with bleach. Will the product some of you have mentioned (Affresh?) reach that mold if I use it? Thank you for help on this; it's driving me crazy.



I had the same problem with my Front-Loader however, mine was a Maytag (irrelevant). I tried literally EVERYTHING to get rid of the moldy smell and yeah, the smell was getting in my clothes too and almost impossible to remove. After a few months of dealing with this, I guess we started getting to where we didn't notice the mold like smell in the clothes but other people did. Thankfully, my family was honest with me and wasn't embarrased to tell me the truth that ALL of our clothes had began to smell moldy. At this point, I simply said to myself "NO MORE" and replaced the rubber seal around the lid/door opening of my washer. The smell went away immediately and the seal wasn't that much money, I believe a year ago it was $35.00 (Maytag Brand). If you decide to take my advice and replace the seal, be sure and use a cleaner for removing mold in bathtubs and showers around where the old seal was, after removing the old seal. Otherwise, with mold being what it is, it might take out the new seal too. GOOD LUCK!
Sincerely "LINK-82"

W0W most of this forum centers around this "Affresh", I wonder if the manufactures of "Affresh" are "Aware" of this. (hmmmmm)
