ok, i will try that.
thanks, thats a good advice.
I cleaned the rubber with bleach last night and its definitely better already, but still not perfect. I will try that tonight.
I know exactly what your talking about. There is a little cover which can be opened ,though it is not marked that you can open it , should be infront of your machine at the lowest level. Before you open it , put a cloth to absorb what's gonna come out. There is a outlet /pipe behind that cover and on opening it there's the dirtiest water you have ever seen.That really needs to drain out. I have done it n 3 to 4 machines so I guess all washing machines have that outlet.use Softlan on your clothes they make your clothes smell good and I also use 'Bounce' laundry sheets , I get them from Canada in the last cycle . let me know whether you cud open the little flap.
