I wipe it out with a cleaning sponge to remove the hair(dog of course) and I dry the plastic on the inside of the door after I am done for the day. It looks like a brand new washer. I also use tide washing machine cleaner every now and then, especially in the summer. One hint if you get a front loader, always keep the door cracked after your done using it so you don't get a mildew smell and the drum can dry out. The dryer I just vacuum the lint screen area once in a while to prevent build up. I had a dryer fire once and it isn't pretty. Personally I would stay away from Maytag. Most people I know have had maintenance issues with them.
    Good point Rosalie.... I keep the door open and the drawer for the products open too when not in use -- the mold that can collets is gross.

    I would absolutely recommend a Front loader. They are huge and as long as you keep the gasket clean, you won't have any trouble. Most of the bad reviews are due to the gasket leaking. If you don't keep it clean you will have a problem.

    Have you ever tried the tide washing machine cleaner? I love it, you throw it in, set for normal wash and let the cleaner do it's thing. It smells phenomenal!

    Now, I'm wondering if I would dare try washing it again. If so, I would have to do what you mentioned and buy a rather large washer and dryer.
    Mine could probably easily with no issues fit 2 king size comforters!

    My whole heart, Tyson.
    Whoever said diamonds are a girls best friend, obviously never owned a Bulldog.

    Thanks everyone.. I learned a lot from your posts.

    For those of you that wash your comforters, how do you dry them? Like I said, the one time I did, the dryer burned a part of it. But I was using a commercial dryer in our buildings laundry room, and I was using the highest heat setting.

    When you guys dry it, what setting do you keep it on so it doesn't burn? Ours is also King, and it's some kind of "Down Alternative" hypoallergenic comforter. Anyway, it burned.

    I have a king size bed and have not had any trouble washing and drying my quilts or comforters. I can give you dimension size later when I am home. Commercial dryers are much hotter than a regular I think. Don't forget, you will be at your beautiful country house, you can hang it outside in the fresh air. Me, I'm am much to lazy for that. lol

    I always use a med/low setting and run it longer... midway through I take it out and see how dry it is and check the center.

    Rosalie, can you give me the size of your washer and dryer?

    The bullies would take it down faster than I could get it up if I even attempted to hang it outside..lol..
