Does anybody have a problem with an odor that seems to be coming from the washing machine? Sometimes, the clothes smell like dirty socks.

Lots of people report that complaint from time to time.

I have the same issue - did you ever find out the cause?

How did you resolve it?

Response appreciated

Thank you

There is no one single cause of such a complaint. Each case has to be determined on its own merit and usually requires actual investigation to find the source(s). You can read about some possibilities at the following link:

I ended up taking off the top of my maytag and popping off the rim of the drum and scraping a layer of soap scum goo from just above the max water line. That area probably doesn't always get submerged so soap builds up easily. There was also soap scum under the fabric softener cup. stinky.

I probably have some under the Agitator, but I am scared to break the seal in the bottom of the tub.
