Over the last few months we have noticed a very foul smell coming from
our laundry room. At first I thought it might be the sink next to the
washer but after cleaning the trap nothing improved. After doing a
load or two it smells for about a day then goes away. I checked the
hoses and they are not kinkied so I think it is coming from the pipe
in the wall which I cannot get to other than where I put in the hose
from the washer. Is there anything besides Drano that I could use
that would clean this out? Very frustrating since we have been in the
house for 5 years when it was built.
I have a freshen up procedure for the Maytag Neptune, a similier
should work on others as well.....
