  • I keep the door open after I'm done washing all my laundry

  • Put a little bit of baking soda in the washer and run the rinse cycle before starting your laundry

  • vinegar works too and also sanitizes it

  • Vinegar or bleach, I prefer vinegar cos then I don't have to worry about stains with the next load. Also after that make sure u wipe out ur washer after every load.

  • Vinegar. Hydrogen peroxide will kill any mold in there too. Leaving the door ajar is key to a fresh smelling front loader.

  • water with baking powder you could leave the water open as well so the water can dry out.

  • You need to clean out around the drum. It gets gunk and yuck on the inside of the walls and since it is wet all the ttime, it ends up stinking. good luck!
