I have a Bosch Nexxt Essence Front Loader. I have odor and mildew issues that I have "sort of" been able to control. My problem now is that, although I do not use softener in my washer, the dispenser is filled with water and I can't figure out how to drain it.

I am afraid it is going to get stagnant, hence yet another avenue for odor and mildew. Anyone know how I can drain it? There is nothing about it in the manual.

Try some vinegar in the dispenser. This worked really great for me.
Good luck.
