Problem: Odor complaints in Tumble Action Washers
Cause: Possible one or more of the following:
Solution: To determine if fabric softener build-up is at the entrance to the coin trap, remove the front service panel. Then remove the coin trap hose from the tub. If this is the source of the odor, the inner ridges of the drain trap will be covered with thick globs of fabric softener. In this case, a bottle brush (or a condenser coil brush) can be used to clean between the front of the outer shell and the spin tub. If there is nothing between the tubs or around the opening of the coin trap hose, the following suggestions may be provided to the user/homeowner to try remove odors from the washer:
Occasionally use warm or hot water settings for your wash. This will help eliminate animal fat residue found in some detergents that may contribute to odors.
