Egg Smell When using my Kenmore washing machine, I get a terrible smell of rotten eggs. It is a smell from outside the washing machine, NOT inside. The washing machine is approximately 10 years old. When I turn off the washing machine, the smell goes away. This smell does not happen when running the dishwaher. Any ideas?

This problem could also be your water. Do you have wellwater? And if so its a good possibility that its your water. The point that Im trying to make is that before you start to take your machine apart get someone that has some knowledge about your machine that can make an educated guess rather then someone who thinks that they know your problem without even looking at it ( smelling it ). good luck with your machine.
