Munds Park Washer Repair Man with Appliance Service Today Explains the Odor


The moist, dark interior of the washing machine is a perfect breeding ground for mold and mildew

Munds Park – Many people have asked the local washer repair man about the odor in their washing machine. Owners of both top loading and front loading washing machines have experienced this problem. Jerry Reinhart, owner of Appliance Service Today explains how the inside of the washer becomes a breeding ground where mold and mildew thrive. Damp basements and humid weather contribute to the problem of smelly washers.

The washer repair man says that most of the molds that grow in the washer are harmless, but they do give off a bad odor. Dirt from clothes, fabric softener and detergent are the main source of mold in the washer. Using only cold water is a favorite energy saving tip but it can add to the problem. Some detergents work poorly in cold water and dirt becomes trapped in the washer. The solution is to use high quality detergents and use hot water occasionally to prevent build-up.

Another suggestion from the local washing machine service man is to limit the use of fabric softeners, especially liquid softeners which contain a fatty substance derived from animal fats. It makes a slimy, greasy mold from in the dispenser. Fabric softener sheets and dryer balls are a better option. Always refer to the service manual for the best products to use.

Washer repair technicians with Appliance Service Today (http://www.applianceservicetoday.com/) warn owners about using too much detergent or the wrong detergent for their washer. Excess detergent is a primary source of nourishment for mold and mildew. Also, it is critical to use soap with the “he” logo for “high efficiency” front loading washing machines.

One of the best ways to prevent the smell is to leave the washer open to allow it to air out and dry. The washer repair man suggests using a commercial washing machine cleaner once a month for good maintenance.
