thanks for your replies, i haven't had a problem with any other water source, refridgerator, faucets, ect.The washer only smells bad at the time its filling, and only the first fill, the rinses are ok.I'm going to try the cascade/route once to see if that will help. Thanks again.

Please respond to your initial thread and not start a new one.

I am only guessing that this was aobut the problem with smell while running the washer.

My guess is that this is not caused by the washer, but rather the water.

That you have a sulfer/iron problem of a very low level.

And that the smell concentrates in the washer hot water line, either because of the reality low usage, compared to other places that water is used, and/or do to the relatively location of the plumbing with respect to the WH.

Try this.

Disconnect the hoses to the washer and run a garden hose outside. Run about 10 gals and repeat for the cold water.

Then reconnect the washer and try running a load.
