Question about Washing Machines
I bought my Kenmore HE2 Front-Loading Automatic Washer in April/06 because supposedly they were the "be all and end all". Using less water and energy and being easier on your clothes.
I AM ABSOLUTELY NOT IMPRESSED.
The biggest problem I have is the MOLD and the MUSTY SMELL. The black mold is growing on the rubber just inside the door and I am unable to get rid of it. I was told to keep the door slightly ajar which I have done from the beginning but because of space problems cannot open it all the way (not sure if that would be a solution to this problem anyway).
I have also read to make sure you use the 2nd rinse..... well, where are the savings there????
As we speak, I am trying the bleach method as I do not usually use bleach on my clothes but after researching various websites I am not 100% sure this will be successful. I would appreciate any assistance as I simply cannot afford to go out and buy another washing machine at this time.
Bleaching hte rubber will help, you need to check your detergent, you MUST be using an HE detergent, specifically designed for frontloading machines, leaving the door open as well between usage, and running more than just cold washes, HOT water definalty helps.as far as efficincy this machine uses abouit 1/3 of hte water the top loaders do. 13-16 gal, versus 45-50 gal. so an extra rinse is not going to amount ot much. there are also products such as www.AFFRESH tabs, or even "dishwasher magic" has been known to reduced the smells/odors in oyour washer
