Question about Washing Machines
This is a typical problem with most front load washers and is due to moisture inside the washer being unable to dry out in between washes because of the air tight rubber gasket. The only consistent solution I've seen for this problem is to leave the washer door ajar in between washes which will allow the moisture to air-dry and the conditions for mould growth are thus prevented.
I realise that this my present a safety concern for households with small pets or children and I'm not sure what the solution is in that case. Running a wash with bleach is one way to clean the washer. Maytag now also has a product called Affresh which has been designed specifically to combat this problem: http://www.affresh.ca/home.jsp
