Let's put the $1,000.000 problem right on the doorstep where it belongs!
We should not have to jump through hoops just do do laundry for crying out loud!
Since when do we allow ourselves to become victims like this? This is outrageous and manufacturers are profiting while we struggle with these seriously flawed product designs.
So, contact your manufacturer and members of Congress and the Better Business Bureau and DO some major consumer complaining and then try the following as recommended by our local appliance store which received this via fax.
No kidding; a fax sent to appliance stores by a manufacturer with the following instructions for customers to do regularly to manage mold in the machines.
*First, run a full complete wash cycle on hottest setting containing Bleach – * Note: full wash cycle takes 1 hour and 20 minutes on my machine.
*Next, run a full wash cycle on hottest setting using high efficiency laundry detergent * another 1 hour and 20 minutes
*Next, run a full wash cycle on hottest setting using Cascade automatic dish washing detergent *an ADDITIONAL 1 hour and 20 minutes
*Next, using Bleach water, wipe down entire interior of washing machine
*Next, using clean white cloth, wipe entire interior of washing machine dry
*Next, leave door ajar to air out machine
*Finally, I have now been informed that I cannot use fabric softener in the machine even though there is a fabric softener dispenser right in the machine because the new front loading machines cannot handle fabric softener!!
This is outrageous! Our poor $1,000.00 plus new washing machine cannot handle fabric softener.
Give me a break!

SOURCE: musty mildew smell
It is the same with all the front load machines out there. I do a bleach load once a week and always leave the door unlatched. All washers always have some water left in them. You can also wipe the gasket down with a weak bleach and water mix on a rag it will help also.

SOURCE: grey front seal holding water
Old machines used to have a drain hose in the bottom to take that water away however they tended to snap off and allow water to leak on the floor .
On new ones they accept that water will lay in the gasket.
If it bothers you try putting a strip of Vileda cloth into the gasket at the end of the wash to soak it up .
It is bright enough to see and to remind you to remove and dry it.
Add a little Soda Crystal to the soap drawer , thsi softens the water and stops smells

If you know someone who owns a bar, ask them for about 1/2 pt of line cleaning fluid. Start your machine on a 60o wash (empty) and as soon as the water starts flowing into the powder drawer, slowly pour the line cleaner into the water flow. Let the machine go through it's normal cycle, then run the same cycle programme as soon as you can (immediatly if possible) using clean water. Following this action, get your finger and rub it along the inside of the drum, if it's squeekly clean it's solved, if it feels slightly slimely, run the water only wash again the completly to remove any further residue of the cleaner. The smell should go. Let me know how you get on, Regards Dave.
