How do you prevent socks from falling into the lip of a front loading washer and also....what is this that i hear that there is a smell in the washer after a while...? just purchased one and need some...

these units spin super fast and any small items will and can get sucked into boot of door and or even through into the pump assembly if not careful... i would recommend using the garmet for small items just as a safety percaution... as far as the odor yes if you do not leave the door opened after a cycle and or dry the boot area after use after some time it will start to mildew and or mold and smell ... they do have a drain in the center of the door gasket but it still will hold some water and start to smell after a while....

My washing machine smells sour and I don't know how to cure it.

I used 2 quartz of Clorox bleach running a full load without clothes. After that the odor has gone for good. Try that.

You don't answer the others questions about problems -- WHY?

If the washer stinks, keep the lid open between uses. This way, the mold won't grow inside the main tub.
