Front load washing machines tend to be reliable and energy efficient, which makes them the washing machine of choice for a variety of homeowners. Unfortunately, repeated uses of front load washing machines can lead to the development of mold around the rim, inside the doorway and within the drum. In addition to the fact that this mold and mildew can rub off on clothing and cause stains, mold can also infuse your clothes with a musty smell. Fortunately, there are many DIY methods for cleaning mold from a front loading washing machine, as well as methods for preventing this problem from reoccurring.
Clean the front loading washing machine on a regular basis, even if you see no evidence of mold or mildew inside the machine. This will prevent the mold from re-occurring.
One of the ways that you can prevent your front loading washer machine from getting moldy is to leave the door open after every use to allow the machine time to dry out. This is only an option if the washing machine is not in the path of traffic and will not present a safety hazard. In some cases, having a front loading washing machine in the way with the door open can create a hazard for anyone walking past.
