Question about Bosch Nexxt Premium WFMC6400UC Front Load Washer
Our front loading washer has a terrible mold issue in the front gasket. The water doesn't drain completely from the gasket area (the holes are roughly 3/4" above the bottom of the inside front of the gasket) and after each wash I wipe dry the remaining water. I cannot even close the door between washings, it must be left ajar. We were away for a week and my husband had closed the door...needless to say the gasket was covered in mold! Disgusting! I even have to wipe it down with bleach periodically and that does not even remove all the mold. I have read on another website other individuals with this problem, but no remedy. Have had the techs from the installer out and they do not know what to do to solve this. ongoing problem for 2 years and I am sick of it. Please help. Have spoken to Bosch reps who say they have not heard of this problem, just referenced me to another repair company.
The quickest way to solve your problem is to fit a new door seal.
Then each time you finish a wash, clean and dry the door seal.
At least once a week, depending on how often you wash, do a hot wash with powder, but no clothes in.
This is called a maintenance wash.
This should solve your problem.
The door seal probably got into its present condition because of several different reasons, namely:washing at too low a temperature-not using sufficient powder- amongst other things.
the mould is actually living bacteria, not a pleasant thought
Please positive feed back if you find this helpful
Cheers and good luck

Also consider leaving door the open after each use. The reason so the unit can air out. What they did'nt tell customers is when the door is close. there is no air circulation, therefore water and trap air produce odor and meldew.

You think you have a problem? I bought this top of the line set in 2008 before moving to Belgium. My husband worked and worked to get it set up here. He even had to change some of the electrical in the way it is plugged in to a transformer etc. You would think that our problem but no, our problem is mold! Just like everyone has said. It is horrible! What has been done about it by Bosch?
