Front-load washers are a popular style of washing machine, but some owners complain that front-loaders are more likely to develop odors than top-loaders.

Learning how to properly clean front loaders has posed problems for many who have transitioned from top-loader machines. As a result, some users find their washing machines plagued with unpleasant odors and mechanical problems due to improper use and cleaning. Such issues can be largely avoided by proper cleaning.

Since HE washers use less water and energy than standard washers, eventually detergent residue, dirt, mildew and minerals can build up inside the machine.

This buildup often results in odors, and can even cause your clothes to come out of the wash in a less-than-clean state.

We depend on our washing machine to keep our laundry clean. And one would think that it – the washing machine – would stay clean in the process, due to all the cleaning going on inside.

Well, this is actually not the case for front-load washers, which require a little bit of TLC of their own when it comes to keeping them clean.

How do you know if you have this issue? Have you ever gone to fold towels, sheets, or even your clothes and you are greeted with a stinky, sour smell?

This is an indication that your front-load washer has bacteria and mold present.
