Washing machine smells

What can I do if my clothes smell when they come out of the washing machine?

If your clothes smell when they come out of the washing machine, this can be for various reasons. It could be caused by washing regularly at low temperatures or wrong dosing of the detergent. Laundry that isn’t taken out of the drum at the end of the programme can quickly develop unpleasant smells.

Modern breathable fabrics such as sport clothing or special machine-washable textiles should be treated with the appropriate detergent to ensure that bacteria are completely removed. Bacteria can be responsible for odours in textiles as well as in the washing machine. We recommend you use a hygienic conditioner to avoid this.
