Question about Frigidaire ATF6000ES Front Load Washer
I use my front loader at least twice a day and 3 or 4 times on the weekend. I have noticed a black mold all around the gray rubber piece just inside the door. It is getting worse. The other day I could actually smell an odor inside the washer. How do I get rid of this black mold. It can't be good for the clothes I am washing. I put clorox in with a few rags but it didn't touch it. HELP!!!
I think Frigidaire should replace all of our seals that holds mold at their espense.

LEAVING DOOR OPEN BETWEEN USES ALLOWS WASHER TO BREATHE. BEING A CLOSED SYSTEM, IT'S KIND OF LIKE PUTTING A TUPPERWARE LID ON A BOWL WITH RESIDUE AND MOISTURE INSIDE AND LETTING IT GROW.

I just spoke to someone at Fridgidair sinceI have the same problem. It is not covered by my extended warranty. She said to run a cycle of just vinegar (about 1 cap full) then wipe down completely. Then do the same thing with 1/2 cap of bleach (run cycle) then wipe down completely. Don't put clothes in there while this is going on and don't mix the vingar and bleach together she warned me. Then once done, leave the door open after to dry or wipe entire thing down. I was concerned about leaving door open since the light stays on but she said that was most likely covered by my warrenty if the light burned out. IF your machine doesn't dry out by leaving door open, then she said to wipe down after each load... annoying but then again so is mold in a place you are trying to clean clothes.
