Question about Frigidaire GLTF1670A Front Load Washer
I have mildew building up on the water spouts inside the tray of my frigidaire front loader. I have scrubbed with toothbrushes and sponges and the problem keeps coming back. Any help would be appreciated. By water spouts I am talking of the jets inside the tray that force the detergents and softeners into the tub.
I have the 1040 model of this washer - I have had no problems with mold - I use Seventh Generation Liquid (as I have psoriasis, gentle cleaners are a must), and I leave the door open after washing for a day or so. Also, my unit sits directly across from the thru-the-wall a/c in my condo - I have heard many reports of mold on these washers, and I believe they redid the gaskets to have drainage holes - however, I think leaving the door open for a while, and if necessary use a small fan to have a bit of airflow over the gasket for a while will do the trick, after the mold is initially cleaned up. I haven't had to use bleach yet, and I have probably been using mine for a year or two now.

Try using liquid wash detergents placed in a plastic ball inside the drum, instead of using powder placed in the soap drawer, because the residue of powder left in the drawer allows bacteria to build up, thats what causes the 'black deposit' you speak of, its very difficult to remove
