Cleaning the rubber door gasket will not get rid of the slime issue. The slime comes from buildup on the outside of the washer drum. There are two causes for this. First, if you always close the washer door after use, then the moisture inside the drum cannot dissipate and the slime can form. Also, using the wrong type of detergent (or an excessive amount of the correct detergent) can cause the slime. There are front load washer cleaning products that you can purchase and run to clean the slime from the outside of the drum.
by cleaning your pump filter at leased once a month will make your washer perform better and last longer. it will stop problems accuring such as (door will not open ) (the machine will not spin on final spin ) (wet cloths) (un even loads) (dirty cloths) (smell & mould ) another good tip is dry off the rubber door seal after use and sprinkle a little talk powder on it this will stop it staining with mould.
That thick black slime is called black mold. You need to do a major cleaning on your unit, including checking the water drainage hose to assure that the water is clearing all of the way out and is clean of builduo. Do not waste time in waiting to do this as it will only get worse. Disinfect,
Disinfect, Disinfect. Good Luck.

Remove the lower rear panel of washer.
Locate and remove the large black hose fastened to bottom of drum.
Remove and clean plastic filter inside the hose, reassmble and test for leaks.
Have some cloths ready to mop up any water that may appear..
Sounds like there is too much water left in the drum as it goes into the spin cycle, and the centrifugal force of the drum spinning is forcing the wate past the door seal probably, needs the filter cleaning, or the door seal itself may require replacing.
Just a thought but you never tampered with the water level on the pressure switch did you? This would give off similar faults. It could be the pressure switch itself or the chamber is partially blocked it could be a broken or loose tacho wire on the motor. Or it could be a fault on the main control board.
Since this happened from day 1, your water may be the problem. Do you have well water? If so, get a softener system. This will get rid of the iron, which is responsible for rust stains. I really doubt that a new machine would cause rust or grease.
Why didn't you do something five years ago when you first noticed this? It will be much more difficult to get a resolution from the manufacturer after5 years.
Hey kevin that outer cone of the front bearing is a mission im telling ya...
But from experience ive found that by cleaning around it ( i use a metal brush on a drill ) and using wd40 and letting it soak in for a few hours its makes like a lot easier,,
I use a bolster with an end similar to a crow bar to just get inbetween the tiny gap and a very big lump hammer to know out the cone.... Best way knocking it from side to side ie bottom the turn the back half of the drum round and knock the top then the sides,,
