I have a great tip for making a smelly clothes washer smell fresh and clean, given to me by a Maytag repairman. Simply run dishwasher detergent powder, not liquid, through your machine with no clothing in it, about once or twice a month.

It works and it is cheaper than the specialized products that do the same thing. Use the same amount you would use of laundry detergent for your particular machine.

Your title says Prevent a Smelly Washer With Powdered LAUNDRY Detergent but then you say use DISHWASHER detergent powder. So which should we do?

Editor's Note: Either can be used but this tip is suggesting Dishwasher Detergent. We have fixed the title to be more clear.

This tip is true. I hate to waste water so I run my scatter rugs when my washer needs this.

Switching to powdered HE detergent solved the odor problem in our LF front loader. Might have reduced the aount of detergent as well.
