I have read on here that it's best to leave wahing machines open when not using them to allow them to dry out. I used to do that. Not anymore! The last time I did that I went to do laundry there was a big ass spider in there when I went to do laundry. I turned the water on to kill it, but it was a bitch to get it out! My dh had to do it! Never again!!!!!!!!!!!

I don't because it's in my kitchen, which is small so sometimes it serves as extra counter space.

YUCK!!! I do leave it open though to let it air out. Also, I have forgotten loads of laundry before so if I leave it open I KNOW it is empty.

I have a front loader and keep it open but I would freak if I saw a spider.

I leave my open to keep it from smelling.

I keep it open but not to dry out. I try to keep laundry clean. I throw daily regular clothes in the washer. When I get a load, I turn it on
