Affresh vs Smelly Washer products
I've had the mold smell in my washing machine Maytag Neptune for over 5 yrs. I don't know WHY these manufacturers can't make washing machines that don't have this obnoxious mold smell, because the older washing machines never had this problem. I currently have a top loader.
My Mother is in Europe and they've been using front loaders for YEARS and never had a mold problem, it seems in just the last 10 yrs that mold odor has been a problem in washing machines. I don't see why we should have to spend top dollar on a washing machine, and have to buy MORE products to get rid of that smell. I used Affresh, it did not work. I was told to use the product called SMELLY WASHER for towels and it does work, but if you don't use it, the smell returns.
I am totally disgusted with all the appliance manufacturers charging top dollar and making inferior products. Hmmmmm..... come to think of it, I WONDER if the fact that the appliances are made in China have anything to do with these smells. Remember the sheetrock that was causing all kinds of problems in peoples homes? That was made in China.
If we never had the mold smell in the older model machines (which were made in the US), then why are we having mold smell problems with the machines in the last 10 or so years? Strange.
