The most common compliant with front loaders is that they start to smell. This is usually due to standing water in the machines. The way they are designed leaves a tiny bit of water left in the wash tub. They also have large seals around the door that can start to get mildew or mold growing on them. The best defense is to leave the door open when you are not using the washing machine. A good second defense is to run an empty load with bleach on the largest capacity setting once a month.
