How do you get the mildew smell out

I have a energy efficient front loading washing machine. It gets a mildew smell, I have tried bleach/water mixture, but it doesn't really work. Any ideas?

  • 1 cup vinegar in the next load and also use it to wipe down the seals. Leave the door open each time you take a load out. Don't close it when it's not running.

  • Add one half cup of baking soda to the wash along with your regular detergent. Also make sure u dry your clothes completely.
