10 Biggest Enemies of Your Washer


7. Wet clothing

If you leave wet laundry in your washing machine for too long after it has been washed, it can cause nasty odors and invite mold to spread. This can be prevented by removing the loads immediately after they are washed. If you are not able to dry the load as soon as it is removed, just place it in a laundry basket until it is time to put the load in the dryer.
