Put the machine on the hottest setting possible and run a wash with no clothes but instead of detergent put bleach in the machine. Also run a bleachy cloth/rag around the seal. Alterntatively some use white vinegar but I use bleach.

There ought to be a "Washing Machine" section as this comes up every week. Then people would be able to find it. Hot wash (probably two), vinegar, don't use laundry liquid.

Clean the soap draw AND the inside where the draw goes.
Have you a flap, front bottom panel, hiding the filter?

Why has the OP been deleted? It was asking about a mouldy smell from a washing machine grin

Put 500g of Soda Crystals (only) in drum and do a 90 degree wash, then put 500 ml of white vinegar (only) in the drum and do a 90 degree wash. This will sort it out. (Check quantities on Dri Pak website, as typing from memory, though sure they are accurate).

Because the OP and his/her alter ego, also deleted, are just spamming to get clicks through to products they or their sponsors are selling.
