When you first get a front loader washer it can be a dream come true. Overtime however the sleek, energy saving, eco-friendly dream can turn into a nightmare. Just as “Chiropractor-Turned-Green-Blogger” from http://www.ecokaren.comdescribes,
“My clothes started to smell like mold and mildew. Towels and my husband’s favorite soft worn out t-shirts started to smell worse after I washed them.”
You may have followed every piece of advice that people and even the manual provided like using High Efficiency detergent and not overloading but the persistence of the odour continues to perplex.
Well what you may not know is that, due to the regular workingsof the machine, water can pool in the rubber gasket that seals the door, allowing odor causing bacteria, mold and mildew to grow and collect with a whole lot of another yucky gunk that gets shaken out of the clothes.
