Question about Ariston Technologies Ariston AWD12 Front Load Washer/Dryer

2 Answers

Ariston "Margarita 2000" Model AL129X [front load washing machine] - Clean sludge from door seal.

We have Australian model washing machine and need advice or instructions on how to thoroughly clean the round rubber seal in front of machine behind glass door.

It has a very thick & smelly brown sludge in places behind rubber which cannot be accessed and properly cleaned.

This sludge gets onto clothes at end of wash.

Can I easily remove this rubber seal and clean it properly ?
I am a handyman, but cannot see a simple way without complete dismantle of machine.

Any help or tips very welcome.

I don't think it is easy to remove it, but you can clean it with white spirit or something similar.

Most likely the EPROM is gone, or more commonly known as the PCB (Programm Control board) and it needs replacement. Costs about £80 for the board plus installation.

Tub smells like mildew, how do i get all the sludge out from the rubber lining, no matter if I run the tub clean cycle, it does not remove any of the sludge!!!!


You need to manually wipe out the inner seal(lining) every time you finish with the washer. This is one of the main complaints with front loading washing machines. You also neep to leave the door open(ajar) after you finish washing so the machine can completely dry out inside otherwise you will get a buld up of mildew. Also run a dishwashing packet like cascade(yes the stuff for the dishwasher) when you run the clean cycle. It is the same as the expensive washing machine cleaning packets that the appliance servicemen from sears sells to customers.

How do you clean the mould build up off the flexible door seal of a front loading machine. Can I take out the door seal safely to do it. Westinghouse front loading washing machine model LF711C


Bleach:Water solution 1:2 should kill the mould effectively.

What they should have told you when you bought this machine and what it almost certainly says in the owners manual is that front-loading washing machines, all brands, are prone to this problem. You must wipe the rubber gasket/door seal off when done using. Every time.

Dumb, I know, but necessary.

My Bosch washing machine is leaving sludge like marks on my clothes. Ran the machine at 90 degrees with soap but no load. Didn't solve the problem. Any ideas?


Make sure the draw is 100% clean inside the draw compartment to if the draw is all clean next thing to cheak is the rubber door seal make sure it is clean all the way round next thing to cheak is the pump at the front of the machine pull down the cover and undo the the pump cover by tuning anti clock wise water will come out when you cheaked it is 100%clean put it back together if you get stuck read manual if all toughs things are clean or bean cleaned. do a 90 again with washer cleaning detergent with you can buy at the super market hope this helped.
