there is always water in the outer tub so that the seals don't dry rot. The water should not raise above the inner basket so that you can see it however, it should sit below the wash basket in the outer tub and this is normal.

Won't this create mold? I got rid of my old washer since my clothes, especially towels always smelled mildewy. I have a daughter with chronic eczema. Mildew sets her off. Standing water sounds unhealthy. Does this same water touch my clothes?

It will create mold actually which is why you need to run your unit with Affresh or bleach every month. You can purchase Affresh at your local grocery store and is made for just this reason in case you don't use bleach in your unit ever.

There is something really wrong with a design like this. I know you didn't design it. I had no idea and wish I had known before I bought it. Thanks for your help.
