Do Front Loading Washing Machines Stink?

Front loading washing machines clean clothes with a minimum of energy and water, compared to top loaders. But, the thing that makes them green can also sometimes lead to odor problems.

the way the tub sits, on its side, can lead to water staying in the machine and turning stagnant, and the tight fitting rubber gaskets can develop mold.

Experts recommend you run a cycle with only hot water and bleach once a month, and leave the door open between cycles to dry the innards out.
