Often smells originate from the seal around the door having mold/mildew on it. Your instruction manual should tell you how to clean this.eko416 wrote: ↑Jan 10th, 2018 10:57 amHi,
I am experiencing a sewer type smell around my front loading washer in the basement. I was not able to directly pinpoint the smell or always repeat the condition that causes the smell and ended up calling a plumber to take a look and he noted that the issue was not the drainage in the house.
I don't smell anything when I try to identify the smell around the front opening of the washer and the waste water that is being released from the machine is running clear with no smell. I have also used the hot water/vinegar/baking soda cycle in the machine but the smell occasionally persists.
Has anyone experience something similar?
Now just today I cleaned out my drain pump filter and discovered some of the most foul sewer smells I have ever had. When I put the filter on the ground thick black water came out of it. Perhaps this could be a source of the smell for you? The filter itself would trap things too. I would have thought the water would stop the smell from coming up (like a typical trap) but perhaps it does not. Either way I know you are supposed to clean it out regularly so might be worth a shot.
