I remember reading a thread about this a while ago and there were a number of suggestions on how to cure this particular problem. I remember thinking at the time how odd, a smelly washing machine and now guess what!! . The inside of the machine smells like washing that has been left in soak too long.

Any ideas on a cure please?

Smelly washing machines!

My old one smelled when I used liquid detergent too. I use tablets now and so far so good.

Once a month I stick the washing machine on a 90 degree wash completely empty - seems to keep the smells at bay.
