Moldy washers? It sounds like a design defect to me! Leaving dirty water in your washer to ferment and grow all kinds of nasty organisms? It does not sound like something any appliance designer would overlook, does it? Of course, front loading washers have to be installed on a level surface, or some small degree off level favoring the drain being essentially horizontal cylinders in basic design. If there is a pump involved, the same might hold true as well. Vertical top loading washers have an advantage in that gravity moves the water downward into the machine pump. Gravity is free! So much for thought experiment conjecture!

The problem is not with the drum but with the seal which sets between the drum and door. My Maytag Neptune has a severe mold/mildew issue and no matter what one tries it doesn’t seem to solve the problem. I have even addressed this with Maytag but have not received any resolution.
