    The washing machine's drain / siphon stinks

    Hello,

    I've moved and there is a washing machine in my bathroom in front of the previous tenant. It smelled pretty bad and at some point I noticed that the odor was coming from the drain of the washing machine. The machine's water drainage pipe goes into a hole in the wall, which is larger than the hose itself, but has a kind of rubber washer so that the hose is locked in the middle.

    Then I ran a 90 ° wash without washing powder or laundry. The smell was gone too. I thought the siphon was just empty and that's why odor came through. Unfortunately he came back after 1-2 days. Then I did a 60 ° wash (normally with laundry) and it got better again, but it wasn't completely gone. The next day it smelled stronger again. I have now pushed the hose further into the pipe so that the hose runs tighter (it was a little sagging). Now a 60 ° wash is running with such descaling tabs.

    Do you have any ideas how to get rid of the smell? I will also contact the tenant, who is just a little further away from the apartment and I would like to try it myself first.

    Picture of the place where the hose disappears in the wall:

    Is the stench coming from the wall for sure?

    It can also be that it comes out of the machine because the fluff filter is too tight and then there is brackish water in the machine.
    At the front at the bottom of the machine is a flap (round or square). Put a container underneath. When that's pretty low, use a baking sheet.
    Then open the flap and there should be a part to open. Turn that up and slowly! pull out. That usually comes out of gammelwasser.
    If your container is full beforehand, then close it again and empty the container first. If you have the filter out, rinse it clean and put it back in.

    If it does come out of the wall, then stop the whole thing and carefully feel with a wire in the wall drain to see if a chunk is stuck there.
    These rubber stoppers for the hose in the wall can be bought for little money in the hardware store. If he doesn't survive pulling out.

    And also * look * under the machine to see if there is old mopping water or something. That also stinks disgusting after a while.

    Please take a picture

    It reads as if there was no siphon installed if the hose simply disappears into the wall and also seems to be too small.

    @Levron: Why too small? The drain hose? They're actually standardized, aren't they?

    Re: The washing machine's drain / siphon stinks

    So I actually assumed that it was coming from the drain because the smell had disappeared after rinsing it well. There is no smell from the machine itself near the drum, but behind it does too, although that is difficult to locate. I'll try that with the container at home. What is the name of this container exactly? (Then I'll take a look at the operating instructions)

    Subsequent delivery is in the original post.

    Re: The washing machine's drain / siphon stinks

    Okay, that's a step forward. Can I do this myself, or does the landlord have to do it (should he?) And how much does something like that cost? Is there an inexpensive solution?

    Re: The washing machine's drain / siphon stinks

    Can you build bends yourself from 4 * 90 degree HT bends. Or buy yourself a siphon, which is probably better if something needs to be connected later. You have to pay for small repairs up to 60 euros yourself.

    Estimate 25 eus material costs.

    Re: The washing machine's drain / siphon stinks

    Yes, I would just buy a ready-made siphon. The problem is more the assembly, since I hardly have any tools, let alone that I know how to do it

    Re: The washing machine's drain / siphon stinks

    If you don't need a tool, you can turn it by hand. Instructions are included. Perhaps at most a pair of pump pliers, but as I said, it doesn't have to be. The variant with the HT arches doesn't need anything, just a little lubricant. Is simply put together. In your case I would use 5 * 90 degree bends and a short piece of pipe, about 15 cm. I'll tell you later when I'm home

    As long as you haven't really located the smell (AND: cleaned the fluff filter beforehand!), I wouldn't throw any money on the problem at first.
    So: wait until it stinks -> pull the hose out of the wall (better probably first) -> look again where the smell really comes from, from the wall or from the hose.

    Since you apparently have enough play on the hose, you can bend a pseudo siphon yourself, just put a U into the hose. There are also clippable things that you put on the hose.

    Edit: I'll bet 100 virtual thalers on the fluff filter

    Re: The washing machine's drain / siphon stinks

    @dexter where the flexible pipe goes into the wall it is not tight, i.e. the smell just comes out there, regardless of whether the pipe itself serves as a siphon or not?

    I will try again to locate it exactly at home.

    @ Werner: You can look at YT for instructions for the fluff filter. Is really pillepalle that clean. As long as you have a baking sheet or something before turning it up ...

    We already had an 11 mm wrench stuck in the sieve for months. Has collected a lot of sour cream.

    Re: The washing machine's drain / siphon stinks

    The lint filter is of course stuck. Otherwise the smell will just be gone after the last wash. Accordingly, I cannot locate any odor.

    @Levron did you see my post above about siphon and attachment of the hose?

    @werner:



    Costs less than 10 euros.
    Your hose goes on top of the spigot ...
    You still need a hose clamp ...
    You shorten the pipe to the wall accordingly (saw).
    But it should be at least 7cm long so that it is fully in the HT arch in the wall.

    Holder for on the wall is included.

    After that, it won't stink anymore

    Re: The washing machine's drain / siphon stinks

    Great thank you stupid question, but which saw can I use to saw this? (Don't have any) and how is it attached to the 50 pipe in the wall?

    Re: The washing machine's drain / siphon stinks

    You saw off the 50s. A metal saw blade is enough .... deburr it with a knife, put liquid soap on it and just put it in your drain ... first, of course, remove the thick rubber. Not the lip ring that is behind it.

    Above where the pipe is thinner you can see the clip with screw. That should be in the wall. So drill a hole in the dowel and you're done. You have a joint on the first arch after the rossette. That means you turn the shortened pipe so that the siphon is maximally on the wall. So 90 degrees. But you can see that when you screw it.

    Good luck
    Werner would like to thank you for this contribution

    And you didn't take it out and clean it up? Turned off again and good?

    @ Chegwidden: Haven’t you unscrewed your pseudosiphons in the meantime?
