and silly me didn't know all the maintenance details (including the open door rule) until after about 4 months of use and by then all our clothes began smelling musty. let me tell ya people, that is a hard smell to get rid of. my cleaning lady was the one who informed me what all i needed to do to keep it clean and our laundry smelling fresh.
i swore to myself i would NEVER get a front load washer again.
that was until i started to lay out our laundry room and "pinning" things on pinterest.
i've been scouring the internet looking for feedback or to see if i'm the only one with my dilemma. recently, emily a. clark did a post on a similar issue and she now posted her update. she went with a top load and gave good support to her decision. i think i'm back at square one.
