What else would cause a FL to smell?
I just purchased a FL GE pair and love them but I was wondering what all can cause them to smell? At first it was more of a rubber smell so I attributed it to the gasket being brand new. I have been diligent in wiping it out ad nauseum and yet I still feel it has a "smell". I am certain they didn't bring me one that was "used". Could water be standing somewhere else in the machine besides the gasket area? It does have a bit of water in the gasket when finished and the manual says to pull it forward so that it will drain into the little holes in the rubber which I have been doing. I also wipe it out completely the door, the entire inside of the gasket all around and keep the door open. Is there any other area that could be causing a smell? I also use bleach on some whites. The compartment where you add the detergent, softener and bleach also sometimes has water standing and so I also dry that out.
