Thanks for the replies.........After doing some research online, it appears that this mildew smell problem is systemic to front loaders.....They are evidently prone to retaining water & require special procedures, like your keeping the door open, etc. I guess my attitude is that if we can land men on the Moon, we should be able to make front load washers that drain completely!
Our washer/drier is about 10 years old & still works, so.............I'm not going to go out & throw money away on more products designed by accountants rather than engineers!
Unless they solve the draining problem b4 we need to buy new equipment, I'll just go out buy the old, tried & true....top loaders.
