+1, all mouldy and full of gunge in the drum, and they rave about 'clean at 30degC' but in fact you need at least 60degC to properly kill bacteria / bed bugs / remove human grot and grime from towels and bed sheets - hmmm yummy....

30 or 40degC is just a nice warm shower for bugs to wash in before multiplying!!


We run empty 90deg washes every few weeks to try and keep it clean.

Also, re the door seal, if it will allow and its not split, just remove it clean in warm soapy water and put it back on rotated round 180deg, chances are it will seal again.
