It's not actually the washing machine, but the washing it washes that smells all fusty and stale. I've cleaned out the filter, cleaned the drawer of all crust and old powder etc. But the slot where the drawer slides in is pretty manky. I've tried to clean it as best I can but it's very awkward to get to.
I've also put the machine on empty but with powder and on a boil wash.
Anything else I can do? Should I get it serviced? Are there any products that exist like the dishwasher cleaners you can get but for washing machines? Help!
I put my machine on a hot wash with two cups of vinegar or lemon juice then put on an empty hotwash to rinse works a treat for me. Hope this helps a bit I do that every 6 months probably should do it more though LOL
It is probably the waste pipes. You can buy some "stuff" at a hardware shop for keeping machines fresh. Can't remember the name, but if you ask for something to freshen it they will have just the thing!
