Whirlpool - Smell Issue Resolved
Cabrio Top Load Washer
Hope this information helps someone?
This is both a possible solution and complaint.
We had a horrible smell coming from our washing machine. Searched everywhere on google and came up with the same results; mold from using too much detergent. Tried bleaching and cleaning tablets whcih worked for a couple of days. Spouse found threads of clothing in the wash which were unexplainable. Upon a closer look, and after removing the dome in the bottom of the washer, we found 12 articles of clothing which had made it under the dome and through the drainage holes at the bottom of the washer. Incredibly hard to get these items back through the holes; however, once completed the washer no longer smells. The clothing we removed was rancid and ruined. Definitively a design flaw.
