CLEAN SPIN: Apartment washing machines get a lot of wear and tear. Now you can help prevent mold, mildew, and odor-causing bacteria thanks to a new device featured on Amana washers. An antimicrobial component protection is integrated in the traditional series top load washer on the agitator and the tub ring, and in the Enlighten series front load washer on the washer rubber door seal. A similar protection also is offered in Amana's new dishwashers.
