Washing machine mold
After reading this forum for 3 or 4 years, I am beginning to think that mold is fueled by the use of fabric softener, liquid detergents and not enough hot water washes. I have had a FL for 3 years and do not have mold. I leave the door open and pull out the detergent drawer. I use powdered detergent most of the time, occasionly using a liquid, depending on the load. I do not use fabric softener. I do at least 2 hot water washes a week. This is only my opinion based on my observations.
