Question about Maytag Neptune MAH5500B Front Load Washer
There is quite a bit of mildew buildup on the rubber I see when I open my front load washer. How can i get it off?
You are not alone with your problem on your front load washing machine..seems they all suffer from this phenomenon. because in order to keep the water from leaking out the fornt door.. it has to be water tight.. and because it is water tight, it is also air tight so any water left in the gasket for any length of time will develop mold and get mildew there.. There are a few solutions ( no pun intended) floating around but I subscribe to a few basics.. One being .. wipe the gasket after a wash cycle and leave the door open to air dry any moisture that remains. The problem with this is that some housholds have small children and the washer then becomes a danger to them... So.. you can do a periodic wash cycle using a product called AFRESH ( in tablet form and sold at home depot etc) or you can try this product at http://www.smellywasher.com/ . Good luck.. hope this helps you..

Pour 2/3 cup of liquid chlorine bleach into the bleach compartment of the dispenser drawer of your Maytag Neptune front-loading washer.
Run your Maytag Neptune front-loading washer on the "Clean Washer" setting. Press "Start" to start the cycle.
Leave the door open once the cycle is complete to allow the inside of your Maytag Neptune front-loading washer to ventilate and air dry.
Look closely at the gray seal of the Maytag Neptune front-loading washer's door opening. This seal can have a buildup of debris or detergent residue.
Spray the seal with an all-purpose appliance cleaner and scrub away any debris or residue with a cloth or scrubbing pad. Dry with a clean cloth.
Remove the soap dispenser drawer. Press the release lever and lift it out to clean.
Take out the inserts and rinse them and the drawer thoroughly.
Wash with a mild soap and cloth to remove any residue. Dry thoroughly before replacing.
