    Run some water into it after you have washed very soiled clothes. You don't have to run a lot of water and put some pinesol liquid Lysol into the water and spin out. What has happened the trap always and is suppose to have remaining water in it. If you haven't washed clothes for a while. The trap with the water evaporates and allows odor to back into the washer. It also helps to leave the lid up until it drys off inside because you are aiding mold to grow. Jo Ann

    Yes, use the Tide Washing Machine Cleaner until the smell goes away. This should be done at least once a month.
