Yep and leave the door to your dryer closed so your cat doesn’t climb in!

And also open the drawer where you put the soap in

Also be careful with those condensed liquid soaps if you only wash in cold water, I couldn’t find the source of my top load washers funky smell until I pulled the drum basket and found out the exterior of it was covered in a gross film of detergent goo that built up over a long time.

Well also you need to wash them about once a month. That helps a lot.
