Laundry doesn’t smell fresh

Hi guys! I was wondering about my laundry. We moved and got a new washing machine and I don’t smell the scent of the fabric softener. Is something wrong with the washing machine? I used this softener before in my parents washing machine and it works fine.

    Often at this time of year I find myself having to clean my washing machine out so that it doesn't smell "funky"....are your clothes just smelling neutral when you wash and dry them, or do they have a weird smell? Usually I run a cycle on our washer at the highest water level, and add in some white vinegar and baking soda...let that do its thing...and it tends to smell fresh after that. The only other thing I was thinking of is if the water level is higher than what you were previously used to and it's diluting your detergent more so that the fresh laundry detergent smell isn't so pronounced.

    The clothes just smell neutral, but some has a faint scent of the detergent but not the softener. Does the minutes of 脱水 affects the scent of the detergent/softener?

    @thepangans I don't think the time cycle would affect it, more just the liters of water. I find that when I do a small load and keep the water level low, my clothes smell more of detergent than when I am washing a full load and have the machine basically at capacity.

    You can get a washing machine cleaner from the store. You pour it in and run the washer without clothes, and cleans it out and helps the smell!!

    @reishiitravels do i need to clean it even if it’s brand new? The machine is just a month old.

We're trying to head down to Kyushu for a little break later this year, and if you've been to any of the abovementioned prefectures before (or even live there!) I'd love to hear your suggestions for cool things to do and see - preferably the cool spots that guidebooks or online resources might not cover! Thanks in advance!

Living in Miyahara-shi

I have been asked to consider a role that is based in Miyahara-shi. If I went for this job I would be on my own (family will not be able to move initially). Would be good to get some idea of any expat community or life in the area. Whilst I have some very rusty and basic speaking Japanese I would need to be able to communicate at least in the early days in English. Any input?
