One fairly common repair I do is to change out front-load washer door boots (or bellows). This boot is leaking and that’s why its being changed, but the more common reason for the change is because its getting moldy. If you would like to avoid this repair the best thing you can do is leave the door ajar when the machine is not being used. This allows the inside of the machine to dry out and cool off. And we all know that mold needs a warm moist environment with bacteria present. Which brings me to the second point. That is to minimize the bacteria by occasionally running the machine with bleach inside. (A good time to do your whites).
