How do i clean Bosch WAE20261AU front loader washing machine


The lint will be in a removable filter and as for cleaning the rubber seal the black grime will most likely be mould. Try a good mould remover.

I want to buy a Frigidaire Affinity washer because I found one at a good price, BUT several reviews say there is a moldy smell that is awful. Any advice?!


Leave the door open to allow the tub area to dry after use (both top and front loaders). Front loaders also have a propensity to hold a small amount of water in the rubber door seal. Wiping this up after each use will also help prevent the growth of mould.

I have a front loader washing machine. The rubber inside is going mouldy. I have tried to clean same without success - any suggestions!


Unfortunately, once the door seal goes mouldy it is impossible to get clean. Only option is to replace seal. Once seal is replaced, you need to wipe it dry after each wash and leave door ajar to prevent reoccurence of mould.

Hotpoint Washing Machine smells mouldy as has mould


The filter on your pump is probably clogged with lint and stuff. You have to remove the bottom front panel, 3 torx screws underneath. The panel will drop and come off. Drain off the excess water from the hose you see. The white filter cover is right in front. Get yourself a bunch of towels or a good big plastic bag to collect water. Unscrew the filter cover and twist the filter out. Clean out all the stuff and put it back in carefully.

Next: You can use Affresh to clean your front loader. Deposits of soap and other such things can be stuck around the inside tub of your washer. Try this product, it works great on all front loaders. Use hot water with the Affresh pellet with no clothes and run the machine through a cycle. Also helps with any stagnant water smells. Have you cleaned out your pump lately. Put the pellet inside the machine, not in the soap dispenser.
Pl give me a good rating for the free help, thanks.

How old is the washer? Did you try straight bleach on a towel and placed over the "mold" spot for about 5 minutes, be sure to wear gloves. Then scrub with a small brush being careful not to splatter bleach on yourself and rinse well. May need to replace the seal. I always leave the door cracked open after every use to "dry" out the inside and the boot. I also leave the drawer pulled out when not in use for that area to dry out as well. I have never had mold on the door seal of my Neptune washers, only the water holes above the dispenser drawer.

Zanussi front load washer door seal


Keeping the door open after your wash would help in keeping the interior dry. Do not push the door shut, just leave slightly open. Only before you begin your wash, check to see your cat is not inside.
