Smelly washing machine My candy washing machines smells of rotten water, a really strong musky, modly smell. I've had a plumber out to service it, he has said he cant find anything wrong with it. I've tried washing with vinegar, crystal salts and even bleach on a 90degrees spin, still the smell continues. Please has anyone any solution to this!

I have the same problem.I have cleaned it, bleached it put chemicals in it and still the same, My candy washing machine is just over a year old.

The problem is cheap nasty Chinese rubbish. Most brands such as Hotpoint, Hoover, Zanussi are now all owned by the Chinese. I eventually upgraded to a Samsung. You need to go for anything that is not Chinese rubbish.
