Question about Kenmore Elite 45986 Front Load Washer
How do I clean the washer since I don't have the self cleaning feature?
When the washer is not in use, keep the door ajar and the detergent compartment open. I know it looks unkempt but it works. I think the machine is so air tight that it starts to build up mildew unless the doors are kept open.
Hope it helps

The smell usually comes
when the washer is unable to drain water completely, you can run your washer at
its hottest temperature setting with 1 cup of vinegar inside the unit. After
this take off the bottom front panel and clean it completely, also clean the
drain hose and drain pump filter, the smell should disappear after doing all
this. Hope this helps...please post back for further assistance.
