I have dogs, so I have a lot of dog hair. These machines are terrible for that. You can't get the gaskets clean of all of the crud - especially below the gasket where you can't clean.
I leave the door to the washer open so that it'll dry out between washes and I use the tub clean option frequently (wasting water) and even after that, there's still a smell. I've also found
If you have something that's extra dirty, wash it separately. Because the machines use so little water, there really isn't enough water to make sure the dirt is cleaned out.
If I had to do it again, I'd buy a top loader with plenty of water for the dog blankets, etc. My clothes used to be so clean and fresh smelling...
I know the new machines supposed to save water, but I don't see how when I have to use all of the extra features to get the clothes clean and they still come out looking dirty.
All that I've read....top loaders are far more efficient than front loaders , just ot as popular
But we find you need to do a HOT WASH frequently (at least once a week??) or you will get an odor from the machine. If you routinely wash in cold or warm water, you never wipe out what may be growing in your machine.
