Question about Kenmore Elite 45986 Front Load Washer
I have the same smell problem with my Kenmore elite HE3. I noticed there is mildew along the grey rubber ring just inside the door and have wiped that off. We'll see if that helps. Also, I have found a few stray socks that have gotten stuck behind that grey ring--that probably didn't help the smell either. You might try checking to see if any have gotten lodged in yours.
When adding Borax or baking soda, do you just add it to the liquid detergent. Or do you use it IN PLACE OF your regular detergent??
Thanks and good luck!
Good old cheap hydrogen peroxide - best answer for mold. Wipe down the door gasket every week - no more mold.
