Cheaper to clean the old washer and kill the odor, use Affresh tablets and the odor will be controlled.
You already spent the money on the expensive appliance, run it until it is EOL.
That was the first thing I thought of but the odor seems to becoming from outside the washing system. I will try it again, to be sure. Maybe, I'll be in for a surprise.
I understand your point but the washer was the cheapest I found 20 years ago. It's past expiration date.
If I have to pay a $100+ just to have somebody look at it, not worth it.
Thanks ArthurS and Hiker for the Speed Queen suggestion. I forgot them since they are not in the big box stores but there are 2 dealers within 20 miles.--
