    I bought a new top-loader recently, and was told that I need to leave it open, as well to keep it from mildewing. Folks need to know that the new top-loaders use basically the same technology as the front-loaders, so most of the rules are the same.

    Lee Anne C, I buy Arm & Hammer concentrated baking soda for the washer. Then I put vinegar in softener tray & leave the door open after washing. I get a clean, non smelly wash and washer at an inexpensive price. Mine is a front loader.

    I did buy the top loader with the new technology & low water wash. I think I am happy with it so far.
