Unfortunately, this is a common problem with front load style washers. Now...if you pull the rubber boot back where it meets the wash tub there should be several small holes that allow any residual water to drain back into the wash tub. If these holes become clogged with lint and/or debris water will accumulate and mildew. The best advice I can give you when it comes to this type of washer is to become diligent about ensuring nothing gets caught in the the seam of the rubber boot. Routinely inspect this area after each wash for loose items like socks and underwear. In addition, clean this area periodically. What I often recommemd to people is to wait until you get ready to do a load of towels and wash cloths. Clean this area with a dirty towel or wash rag and throw it into the wash to be cleaned. This way you don't have to worry about having any old rags lying around. If you are not in the habit of using hot water settings you should also run a cleaning cycle about once a week on the hottest setting available. Pour a small amount of bleach into the soap dispenser and run the unit with nothing in it. This will help in killing any bacteria. Some of the newer models have now been equipped with a "Clean" cycle just for this purpose. Due to the design of these washers they become breeding grounds for mildew because the wash tubs are dark and if you leave the door closed when not in use it seals out any air that could allow the tub to dry out. When you are not using the washer leave the door slightly ajar to allow the tub to air out. I hope you find this information is helpful. Post back with comments and let me know if this works for you, or if I need to give you better advice.
