This is the best way I’ve found to eliminate that skanky smell from frontloading washing machines.
- Clean out detergent dispenser drawer of all laundry detergent and fabric softener.
- Purchase and use a washing machine "cleaner" found in grocery stores or follow the manufacturer’s instructions
- Clean all rubber gaskets around door.
- Only use powered laundry detergent.
- Always leave door ajar when not in use.
- Do not use liquid fabric softener, use only dryer sheets.
