After each wash, open the door and let the water remaining in the drum dry. Wipe the rubber seal dry and remove any detergent residue and dirt. Leave the door ajar after a load.

Washing machines should be washed themselves on a regular basis. This can help stop foul smells or even mold and mildew. There are many simple things that you can do to help reduce the wear and tear of your washer. After all, it is a major investment — you want to keep it in good condition, so it lasts for years to come. If it is noticed that odors appear or clothes are not cleaned enough, it may be time to give your washer a little TLC. Regular maintenance and cleaning will extend the service life of the clothes washer.
