I've read several reviews on the Consumer Reports page for this model that complain about mold forming in the detergent tray. I'm not seeing that complaint in other reviews. Is this an issue with this model?
Asked by: Contractor
As with any product or piece of product that has water running thru it, it needs to be cleaned weekly. Just take it out over to the sink and wash it and then let it dry or wipe it dry. If done weekly, then no problem. We also keep the washer door open after washings. We have owned a front loading Maytag washer dryer since 2000. Easy on clothes and colors! Would not own any other brand!
