How to keep your front load washer fresh

Do you leave the door open after each use?

The washer has a tight seal to avoid water leaks. To avoid odors, leave the door open to allow the washer to dry between uses.

Unload washer as soon as cycle is complete.

Use warm or hot water in your washing machine unless the fabric you are washing requires cold water.

If your laundry room is damp, use a dehumidifier.

Always use HE High Efficiency detergent to avoid detergent buildup inside the machine.

Make sure you are using the correct amount of fabric softener. See your Use and Care Guide for details.
