Toploaders don't develop mold/smutz like frontloaders? Really?
I found this picture on another board. It's the tub cover from a Maytag Performa toploader, after much of the residue had *already* been cleaned off. The individual who was dealing with the machine said that the surface of the outer tub and outside of the inner basket above the water line had the same coating of residue ... and that only cold-water washing had been done with suspected insufficient (liquid) detergent for approximately the past 3 years.
