This is a fatal flaw of front load washers, i see this post over and over on a daily basis, all u can do is clean the front seal with bleach or Tilex brand mold and mildew remover (use rubber gloves, very caustic) as often as required, also make sure the tiny drain hole in the door seal is clean and clear.

Mildew odor in the machine....can't get rid of it and makes clothes STINK!


If you have a smelly front loading clothes washing machine, toss in a Finish Geltabs (the ones that are all liquid) and run the machine on a hot wash cycle, medium to heavy load (to get more water in the tub) with no clothes in the machine. You don't need to use much of a spin cycle so set it on low. The washing machine will come clean and even the moldy spots on the rubber gaskets will disappear. A second treatment may be needed if the smell is not completely gone. We tried everything from vineger to bleach to baking soda to borax to commercially available odor removers from Whirlpool and Tide. Nothing worked until I hit on this idea. It's cheap, easy and can be done anytime your machine needs a refreshing. I used the orange Geltabs but any fragrance would be fine. Keep the door on your washer open a bit when possible to air out to help preclude those nasty smells.

Well it only takes seconds for mildew to start forming on wet clothes it is advised by the manufacturer to remove them immediately after the cycle stops. I would run the machine on hot with detergent and maybe some towels that will rub any off, then i would re-wash the load.
Hope this helps
