The best way to handle washing machine odors is to prevent them from occurring in the first place.


After a wash cycle, use a dry towel to remove moisture from the door seal.


Keep the door crack open for ventilation.




You can also try an empty (no detergent or clothes) hot water wash with ½ Cup of vinegar to try to get rid of bad smell of the machine.
