I have had an issue with the smell of my sheets. I don't notice the odor on other items. Anyway, right out of the wash (on sanitize cycle) the sheets don't smell fresh. I had a set of sheets that I threw away because the odor filled the cupboard and the room. I bought a new washing machine after that, but I notice the same issue cropping up. I have hung them out to dry, which did not help that much. I don't use softener in the washer. I have a front loading washer.
When the washer goes off, do you immediately move your clothes from the washer to the dryer?
If you leave your clothes in the washer for a long time, that could be the smell perhaps.
Try running your washer on an empty load, using bleach or vinegar. It may be your washer.
Why do my sheets smell like dirty hair after washing?
Add 1 cup of white vinegar along with your washload that should eliminate any foul odors.
I tried vinegar, baking soda, and oxyclean. The vinegar and baking soda worked well for some of the musty laundry, but the product that worked the best was Pin Sol.
