I live in Sotogrande on the Costa del Sol, people commenting this year that water especially cloudy and washing coming out machine with 'bad' (kinda damp) smell. Done lots of cleaning strategies, from Vineger to specilaist cleaners, but still going on. Got a filter system for drinking water which cools nicely, but doesn't seem to make clear, filters been changed etc. Any ideas?

does it come out of the tap cloudy?

if so - contact the water company!

Has your machine got a lint trap, sometimes if this is blocked it causes the damp smell, due to mould growth.
Try putting your machine on a blind wash cycle, with nothing in at all, at the highest temp. Put half a cup of white vinegar and half a cup of bicarbonate of soda in the tub.
Always leave the door slightly open at the end of a washing, so that air can dry any water left inside, and wipe round the rubber door seal with a cloth to dry that off. Hopefully it will improve.
