Question about Kenmore HE2 Plus Front Load Washer
The following link will give you some tips to try in order to minimize odors and mildew in a front loading washer:
Following a good regiment of routine cleaning of the door bellow, followed by leaving the door open when not in use (at a minimum) can go a long way towards preventing odors in a front loader. Since the doors on these washers are water tight when closed, it is importnant to leave them open when not in use to allow the drum to air out. There is a small amount of residual water that remains in the drain lines and pump that will sour if you don't. I personally own a Kenmore Elite and have never had problems with mildew or odor in the 9 years I've had it by following this routine.
In addition, it is a good idea to periodcially check the drain pump reservoir to ensure there is not dirt or debirs clogging the pump and becoming stagnant. The following link explains how to access and clean the drain pump (if necessary):
The drain pump reservoir collecting debris, along with small articles of clothing getting caught in the folds of the door bellow are the two main causes of odors in a front loader.
