    This phenomena is mostly appears in washer that used most of the time for "cooled water" washing cycle.
    The cure is to run once a month a boil wash with no clothes, using whites powder detergent in or bicarbonad of soda.
    Good luck !!

Model WF7700N6W1 - front loader - smell? Rubber seal inside door peels back a bit to reveal buildup of gunk between seal and inside frame? retaining water here?


Ok, nothing to worry about. You have bacteria growing in your machine. Clean out the slime from the door seal using a soft cloth and soapy water. DON'T use any harsh chemicals such as bleach !
Remove your detergent drawer (if possible) and clean it thoroughly - a dishwasher will do this very well. Disconnect your machine from the power supply and clean thoroughly inside the space where the dispenser drawer was, using a toothbrush or larger nylon brush and a soft, soapy cloth.
Using liquid detergents all the time can cause a build up of residue over time, which gives the bacteria and mould somewhere to grow. So try a hot wash cycle (without a load) using a powder detergent intended for whites. Washing powders contain brighteners and chemicals which are hostile to mould and bacteria.
Finally, leave your dispenser drawer and loading door open every night to allow fresh air to circulate through the entire machine. This will reduce the number of cleaning occasions needed.

It has a musty smell


Step one: Identify the source. Try switching to a high efficiency powder detergent instead of liquid. (Suds collect in nooks and crannies.)
Step two: Clean. First wipe the inside of the washer, especially the area where the door seals to the inside. Mold can collect around the insides and folds of the rubber seals. Get in there and make sure you cleaned it all. You could use bleach or Pinesol.
Step three: Use a quarter cup of dish washing detergent (powder is best, liquid if you must), along with a towel. Put the machine on the "sanitary" (hottest water) setting. Let it finish its cycle. This should get rid of the mold completely.
Step four: Leave the door open between wash loads. This will decrease the mold build-up as it allows the tub to dry completely
NOTE: IT WILL TAKE 2-3 WASHINGS TO TOTALLY RID THE CLOTHES OF THE MUSTY SMELL.
Hope it helps!

Water is pouring out of my dispenser drawer


I have read other folks say that this has happened to them when a sock or wash cloth gets stuck behind the rubber seal of the door. There is a pipe that drains the water from your detergent tray and it may be clogged with a sock. Try feeling around behind the rubber seal in proximity to the detergent tray and see if there is a piece of clothing stuck in the pipe that drains the detergent tray. Also remove the tray and check the pipe from that end too.

Light coloured washing gets dark stains during washing, particularly towels. We have tried cleaning using specialist washing machine cleaners, we have put it through the hottest cycle. Any ideas?


I had a similar problem. In my case it was because I always used a low temperature '30' wash. There was a build up of gunge in the folds of the rubber door seal. I wiped this off and then put towels through on a high temperature wash which cured the problem. I repeat the high temperature wash occasionally and the problem has not reappeared. Hope the answer is a simple as this.

Allways smells like mildew when open up


Yup, my front loader has the same issue. I found the rubber seal around the door has a fold in it that holds water and sometime candy wrappers and various stuff from pockets.
By wiping the fold in the seal out on occassion and not closing the door in between uses, the issue was resolved.

Rubber door seal replacement on my Front Load Washer


OPEN THE DOOR
THERE IS A WIRE AND SPRING CLAMP AROUND THE SEAL, PULL BACK THE SEAL WITH YOUR FINGERS AND YOU WILL SEE IT
TAKE OFF THE CLAMP
FOLD THE SEAL BACK INTO THE DRUM
YOU WILL SEE ( OR FEEL ) A CLAMP AROUND THE SEAL ON THE DRUM
SLACKEN OFF THE SCREW HOLDING IT UNTIL YOU CAN PULL OFF THE SEAL.
FIT A NEW ONE IN REVERSE ORDER.

HINT- WIPING WITH LIQUID DETERGENT WILL MAKE IT EASIER TO FIT THE NEW SEAL.
HINT2 - YOU MAY NEED 4 PAIR OF HANDS TO FIT THE SPRING CLAMP

He2 leaking from detergent dispensor


Plug off the wall, etc. Remove the rear cover. There is a thin tube coming from the control panel area to the base where the water exits, this should not be blocked, remove from top and blow to check, refit. Next clean out your outlet filter, it could be clogged, refit. This tube controls the water level. Another thing that could be the problem: Try to take the top of the machine off; there are three tubes coming into the dispenser box, these may hv come loose or something. Connect well.
