    Is it Normal for my Washer to Have a Musty Smell? How Can I Get Rid of It?

    I've noticed that my washer has a musty smell, especially after doing a load of laundry. Is this normal, and what can I do to eliminate the odor?πŸ€”

    Ah, the dreaded washer funk! Unfortunately, it's not uncommon, especially if you're in the habit of leaving damp clothes sitting in the machine for too long (guilty as charged πŸ™‹β€β™‚οΈ). But fear not, there are a few tricks to banish that musty odor for good! First, try running an empty cycle with hot water and vinegar to kill any mold or mildew lurking in the drum. Then, sprinkle some baking soda inside and run another cycle to freshen things up. And don't forget to leave the door open between loads to let your washer air outβ€”your nose will thank you later! 🧼🌬️

      Hey Yula24! Musty smells in washers are pretty common, especially if you leave the door closed between loads. One thing you can try is running a cycle with hot water and vinegar – it helps get rid of buildup and kill any mold or mildew causing the smell. Also, make sure to leave the door open after each load to let it air out. There are also washer cleaning tablets you can use periodically for maintenance. Hope that helps!

        Oh honey, that smell ain't normal! πŸ™…β€β™€οΈ Sounds like you got some mold or mildew buildup. Try running an empty cycle with hot water and vinegar or baking soda. That should do the trick! 🌟 If it persists, might need to clean out the filter or check for any leaks. Good luck, dear! πŸ€
