The washer of course is one giant plastic drum behind the stainless inner drum. I've tried LOTS of hot water and super clean two dozen times. Ran a load of towels I don't use every week for a year. I've used oxi-clean several times which seems to help the plastic smelll but does something to the clothes that has the same effect as bleach with out the scent.
