Consumer Reports weighs in on FL mold issues...sort of

15 years ago

It seems consumer reports has at least recently acknowledged that there is a "problem" with mold (see link) and FL machines, but this brief article/blog entry really does not help much as I consider this $1600+ purchase. Would like some more solid answers because the negative reviews are really scaring us away from the FL machines. I really don't want to be signing up for complicated repairs, extra cycles, additional chemical treatments/products, and constant maintenance and bleaching of inner parts. Who's happy with their FL machine and what is your make/model? And what sort of detergents are you using?

My gut instinct tells me these mold issues could be a small percentage of actual FL users and somehow represent a large amount of disgruntled reviews, but maybe I'm way wrong?
