If old one is not leaking ,fill machine up and put cup full of bleach in let it wash for 5 mins ,Then switch of leave overnight,then contine with wash cycle.This is because most people do not do hot washes ever.

We have mold all around the rubber gasket in the opening. How can we get rid of & prevent?


Use a 50/50 mixture of bleach and water. Use gloves and goggles to protect your skin and eyes. This will kill the mold. Try wiping down the rubber gasket after every wash to prevent mold from forming again.

Mold in gasket


sorry to hear it'
your right that the beoot is stained but the active mold can be fixed first make sure your boot drain is clear, its a small hole at the botom of the grey "boot"
next buy some dish detergent crystals
one empty load with 1 cup of the dish detergent
this should kill you active molds
now always dry the boot between loads with a rag or towel
its a pain but it will eliminate the problem
make sure the drazin is clear every laod

Hello, my axxis washer gets mold build up on the rubber gasket at the door. i have ordered a new one but do not feel the need to pay $200.00 for the install. can i get instructions to install on my own. i...


Um...have fun. I have replaced two of them.

the way to keep the mold from growing in the future is to leave the door open so that you don't create that closed moist environment.

About the easist way to replace/change is to remove the front of the washer (I have completed w/o doing that but took a bit longer).

Make sure you keep an eye on how the old one comes off as some of them have drain pipes connected.

To remove:
There is a metal ring with a spring attached, simply streatch spring a bit at bottom of door and it should come right off. Do the same for the inside seal, that spring is at the top.

To install:

put the metal ring inside the grove of the gasket, then align gasket on the front. Pick an edge to start working around as you get closer to the top (I pick the lower right hand side to start working around. Make sure that your spring part of the metal ring is at the top where the one you replace was at.) once you get to a point you need to stretch the spring, this is where I use an 90 degree or more pick tool to get into the end of the spring. You need to make sure that you have the seal tight. Start pulling on the spring to stretching it so that can put the rest on. (You need to keep tension on the gasket so that the metal ring does not slide.)

Now to the front.

Just make sure that the spring part is at the bottom. When you took the otherone off, it was at the bottom. It has to go there as there is a groove. Once you get the metal part around the gasket push a bit on the spring and make sure it is in that goove.

To test, open and close your washer door a couple times. At first gently.

Hope this helps as they are a pain in the rear.

Also, here is a nice parts place for all your Bosch parts. www.repairclinic.com

The gasket was only about $75 to my door.

Bosch Nexxt series washing machine front gasket mold


Hi.
The quickest way to solve your problem is to fit a new door seal.
Then each time you finish a wash, clean and dry the door seal.
At least once a week, depending on how often you wash, do a hot wash with powder, but no clothes in.
This is called a maintenance wash.
This should solve your problem.
The door seal probably got into its present condition because of several different reasons, namely:washing at too low a temperature-not using sufficient powder- amongst other things.
the mould is actually living bacteria, not a pleasant thought
Please positive feed back if you find this helpful
Cheers and good luck

Change rubber gasket


Remove the door hinges and plastic covers on the unused hinge screw holes on the opposite side of the door opening (door is reversable, so there are places to mount hinges left and right). Front panel will now snap out at top and lift off lower spring clips. One screw on each side will now release top panel and it will hinge up. Prop up with broom handle or something. Now you can get at everthing. Rubber gasket is held onto drum with a cable loop and very strong spring. It rolls off the lip easily to disassemble but is VERY difficult to get back on without special tools or at least two people. We used strong vice grips and much struggling and sweat, and #@*&%!&@ and finally got it on without damage to the new gasket. Door side of rubber gasket is easy in comparison with rubber tabs inserted into slots and working the gasket into a groove. Hose clamp at bottom of rubber gasket to connect drain hose.
