For the past year, our washer has been so stinky!! I took out the fabric softener cup and cleaned the top edge of the "tub" and used vinegar and bleach different times hoping to take care of the problem. Well, it persisted and today I had ENOUGH!! I took the whole "insides" out including the agitator (not sure why I didn't go that far before!??)
This is what I discovered!!!!! :O This washer was here when we moved 6 years ago and I know I never cleaned it, so who knows when it was cleaned last, if ever!?
This was the underside of the part between the fabric softener cup and the top of the agitator..
And this is the top side after it got clean!
I've been feeling a little nauseous the last 2 days and this sure didn't help any!! :P BUT, I am glad to have that taken care of and hopefully I won't have to plug my nose every time I do wash (slight exaggeration)
