There are a few reasons why your washing machine might be giving off an unpleasant odour. The most common causes include:
A washing machine that smells musty, like sewage, or even like rotten eggs can be frustrating and unpleasant. Not only can the smell linger in your clothes, but it can also get worse over time, impacting the performance of your appliance. To clean a smelly washing machine and prevent the odour from coming back, follow these simple steps:
If your clothes smell after washing it could be due to several reasons. First, make sure you're using the right amount of detergent and the right type of detergent for your clothes. Overloading your washing machine can also lead to poor washing results, which can leave your clothes smelling musty. Finally, if your washing machine is not properly ventilated, it can lead to moisture build-up and mould growth, which can transfer to your clothes and cause them to smell bad.
If you've tried all the above solutions and your washing machine still smells bad, it's time to call in a professional. Equally, if you are noticing a burning smell from your washing machine, please contact a professional as soon as possible. A technician can inspect your washing machine and diagnose any underlying issues that may be causing the smell.
