combine that with a fan and fire (oven?) and that should help.
This front loading machine does seem to give me wetter clothes than I remember from the top loader.

I learned somethings. Washing machines have filters. I'm going to go learn what this is, where it is and how to change it.

Can you check your humidity in your house, maybe that would help you know when it's worthwhile to try to dry inside?

I always thought I wanted a front loading machine and when we went to buy one for our son and dau. in law the salesman at Sears said people sometimes complained that they smelled of mildew...the top loader could be left open when not in use but most folks would close the front loader door. I know they don't use as much water and are better on our clothes but maybe they need the vinegar treatment more often. We were told to fill our top loader to extra full and pour in a gallon of white vinegar and run through the cycles occasionally.

And even though I had heard from others regarding the mildew issue on the washer, I either leave the washer door open between loads or I spray the seal area with some "No Work 12x Daily Shower Cleaner" from Melaleuca (and I still usually leave the door open). This appears to be helpful in reducing/eliminating odor and mildew issues.
I've read about this kind of thing at the checkout counter. That's where I met this tiny ad:
