Question about Whirlpool Duet GHW9150P Front Load Washer
This is a common problem with front load washers. Mildew tends to grow in these washers due to it use of less water than top loaders, often leaves dirt and soap residue on the machine. To help prevent mildew, wipe the door gasket, leave door and detergent dispenser open after wash. Wash once a month empty, with hot water and vinegar to kill the mildew in the machine.

Bendix made the first front loading automatic washers starting in the late 1930's. That's right, front loaders are an old idea. However, by the early 1950's, they went out of favor because of all the same problems people have with them today - they did a poor job of cleaning, a poor job of rinsing, they leaked, they had mildew problems, and they were prone to breakdowns.
There's only one way to permanently eliminate all the problems with front loaders - do like your grandmother did and replace it with a top loader. The little bit of water you save with a front loader just isn't worth it. Yes, they're still available and always will be.

You need to run a cycle with hot water, no clothes, regular amount of detergent, and a cup or so of baking soda. The stores sell a cleaning compound that does the same thing for more money.

SOURCE: My clothes smell mildewy. Why?
Front loaders are known for building up mold and the smell.
It’s caused by using liquid detergent which is made from animal fat. Use powder. And use the minimum amount.
It’s caused by using fabric softener. Dilute it 50/50 with water.
It’s caused by the water remaining in the tub between washes. Leave the door open to allow it to dry. .
Pull the rubber door seal back and clean the mold off .
Affresh is recommended by some manufacturers. You run it through a wash cycle with it.
