Stinky Miele 4840 Washer
My washer has an ongoing problem with a sour, almost sulphur-like smell. I use liquid Tide and Mrs. Meyer's fabric softener. I've run it on the sanitize setting, but it hasn't helped - or, maybe it did for awhile, but not for too long. I do about 1/2 and 1/2 cold and warm loads. I have city water and a water softener, but the softener was broken for awhile. Could this be lime buildup somewhere in machine and, if so, how do I remedy? Is it worth removing the gasket (if that's even possible) to look for mold? It's not a traditional moldy smell, tho, like when you leave the clothes in there for too long. It's a sour-ish smell. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
