Anyone any suggestions what I can do to get rid of the smell inside the washer before re-washing the clothes?
It's left a funny grey 'deposit' of some kind or other on some of the clothes as well & I don't know what it is or how to get rid! Do you think a hot wash might remove it? (maybe impossible t answer since you can't see it I know!)
as all the above say- good wipe round and boil wash but pour a couple of extra litres of water in through the powder drawer once it gets started. Will help flush anything out. Then put it on empty normal wash straight after. Make sure you leave door open between washes so machine dries out properly.
Dracula, funnily enought I bought some Persil gel tabs yesterday to try out. I Wonder if that is all it is!!! Cleaned the door seal & drawer so they are shiny. Will pop on a boil wash with vinegar now.
Mercy, not particularly which is why it had me baffled but I think Dracula may have solved the mystery for me with the gel tabs
