    Thanks a lot! While I’m definitely not an “appliantologist” we have been facing some odor problems with one of our washers (we actually have two), and one of these tips helped us greatly – turned out to be a build up around the drain pump filter. Believe it or not, we have never cleaned it before!

    Thank you again.
