I had the same problem with my Neptune washer until I ran a cycle with straight vinegar and water.  This helped get rid of the mold.  I have to run a "vinegar" cycle about every 10 cycles.  I would try cleaning the seal with vinegar first and let it air dry.  Neptune washers need to air dry after every cycle.

How old is the washer? Did you try straight bleach on a towel and placed over the "mold" spot for about 5 minutes, be sure to wear gloves. Then scrub with a small brush being careful not to splatter bleach on yourself and rinse well. May need to replace the seal. I always leave the door cracked open after every use to "dry" out the inside and the boot. I also leave the drawer pulled out when not in use for that area to dry out as well. I have never had mold on the door seal of my Neptune washers, only the water holes above the dispenser drawer.

How do i clean Bosch WAE20261AU front loader washing machine


The lint will be in a removable filter and as for cleaning the rubber seal the black grime will most likely be mould. Try a good mould remover.

I have a 18month Electrolux 8kg front loader which has mould on the bottom part of the rubber seal. I have always kept the door open after every wash but the mould has set in. I have tried wiping it with...


You will find that wiping it dry, then painting it with thick household bleach and leaving it overnight will have an excellent effect on the staining. The rubber will tolerate the bleach without any problem. If one night doesn't quite cut through the mould, treat again the following night.

Just remember to wash the bleach away thoroughly, so that it doesn't affect any garments in the next wash!

Once mold is present the only way to get rid of it is with peroxide. Any residue left will grow again.

I have a front loader washing machine. The rubber inside is going mouldy. I have tried to clean same without success - any suggestions!


Unfortunately, once the door seal goes mouldy it is impossible to get clean. Only option is to replace seal. Once seal is replaced, you need to wipe it dry after each wash and leave door ajar to prevent reoccurence of mould.

Hotpoint Washing Machine smells mouldy as has mould


The filter on your pump is probably clogged with lint and stuff. You have to remove the bottom front panel, 3 torx screws underneath. The panel will drop and come off. Drain off the excess water from the hose you see. The white filter cover is right in front. Get yourself a bunch of towels or a good big plastic bag to collect water. Unscrew the filter cover and twist the filter out. Clean out all the stuff and put it back in carefully.

Next: You can use Affresh to clean your front loader. Deposits of soap and other such things can be stuck around the inside tub of your washer. Try this product, it works great on all front loaders. Use hot water with the Affresh pellet with no clothes and run the machine through a cycle. Also helps with any stagnant water smells. Have you cleaned out your pump lately. Put the pellet inside the machine, not in the soap dispenser.
Pl give me a good rating for the free help, thanks.

Affinity Front loader


Its normal for water to collect in the seal folds. The main thing is to dry it out completely. Take a dry cloth or sponge and try to remove excess water. Leave the door open to dry it out. You can even use a de-mould agent spray (many varieties available in the market). The main idea is to kepp the folds dry.

Hope that helps!

Zanussi front load washer door seal


Keeping the door open after your wash would help in keeping the interior dry. Do not push the door shut, just leave slightly open. Only before you begin your wash, check to see your cat is not inside.
