Sometimes you have to get a cleaner for that kind of machine Tide makes one or you can just bleach. First drain all the water out of it. There will be a little door at the bottom on the front with a hose in it use a bucket and drain it. Then run it through a cycle with bleach or that Tide Cleaner. Bleach works better. I always leave the door open when I am not using the machine. Hope it works

I have front loader washing machine and the rubber has got mould and having difficulty in removing the black mould


  • Saturate an old cloth with white vinegar. Alternatively, you might use petroleum jelly on the cloth to remove the mold.Pull the gasket out gently with your hands to reveal the mold and mildew buildup inside the folds of the gasket.Wipe the mold away from the gasket with the cloth. Continue working to wipe away all mold from the folds of the rubber gasket.Dry the folds of the gasket with a dry cloth when you finish removing the mold.Repeat this procedure at least once per month to prevent mold and mildew from forming. If you notice mold occurring more frequently, clean it off when you see it.


  • Tips for Preventing Mold & Smelly Problems:
    • Always leave the door and dispenser unit slightly ajar after the laundry is done. Front-load washers and the detergent/softener dispenser drawer must dry out.
    • Never leave a wet washload in the washer overnight; remove it when the washing cycle is complete and leave the door open.
    • After a load is done, always rotate the drum with your hand to see and remove all items. Some could be sticking to top or sides of the washer drum.
    • Use softener sheets in the dryer instead of liquid softeners in the washer.
    • Liquid detergents may leave less residue than powdered formulas which may not dissolve properly.
    • Use less than the recommended detergent level for your load. Too much detergent can cause a residue build up. Experiment until you find a minimum measurement that delivers a clean wash. This is also a money saver.
    • Occasionally wash some loads such as whites, linen and towels in warm or hot water to help flush out wash residue.
    • Always clean your washer as per your product manual. High efficiency front-load models have a cleaning cycle and it's imperative that you periodically run this cycle as directed.
    • Check the gasket just inside the door opening and remove any visible debris. You can also wipe it to speed the drying process.
    • Always use HE detergents with high efficiency front-load washers. Specially marked HE laundry detergent is low sudsing and is recommended for these low-water washers.
    • If this advice was helpful a vote with the thumbs up would be appreciated. Thanks.

    There is mold on the rubber seal of the front loader washer. If I fold it back to see the drainage holes, there is mold there too. I wipe out the front now, but the washer usually smells even tho I leave...


    First, wipe down the affected areas with a bleach solution and hot water. Then run a long, hot cycle with the maximum amount of bleach in the dispenser. You may also leave the door open between loads as you did before, but run a dehumidifier in the room too. Mold cannot grow without moisture.... Hope this helps! Handiest1 10-1-10.

    Mold on the gasket of kenmore duet front loader. have run the clean cycle, and scrubbed the gasket and inner liner also


    This is a common problem with front loading washers. To prevent this issue leave the washer door slightly ajar after use. It will promote air circulation and prevent mold.

    The rubber seal at the front of the machine has gone mouldy. I have cleaned it before with bleach but the mould comes back all the time


    Front loaders are known for building up mold and the smell.
    It’s caused by using liquid detergent which is made from animal fat. Use powder. And use the minimum amount.
    It’s caused by using fabric softener. Dilute it 50/50 with water.
    It’s caused by the water remaining in the tub between washes. Leave the door open to allow it to dry. .
