Bad Smell Coming From Washing Machine?

This is a common problem, Liquid detergents, eco products and low-temperature settings are important for the environment, but they can leave a residue, which will require some maintenance.

  1. Run an empty maintenance wash on the hottest cycle your machine has. If you mainly use your washing machine on low-temperature settings (30°C or 40°C), an average family will use their machine 4 times a week, so our engineers recommend that you do this once a week.
  2. Liquid detergents are generally recommended for coloured clothing while most powders have a higher volume of the bleaching agent and is great for white clothing when used at the right temperature.  Check you detergent manufacturer packaging for more information.
  3. Wash towels and bedding at 60°C.
  4. Check under the door seal. There can be a build-up of residue that will need to be cleaned.  We recommend visiting our shop to purchase a suitable cleaning compound or wipe away with a soft damp cloth. You may want to wear gloves for this task.
  5. There are various cleaners and de-scalers available to buy, but our engineers’ top tip really is to run a hot maintenance wash on a regular basis.
