Unfortunatly there is nothing you can do except clean it out every couple days, the way it's designed the water sits there after a wash and has nowhere to go so it just festers and molds over time, I put myself on a regiment to clean it out once a week. It sucks but that's all you can do.
If you look up inside you will mold around the spout. this is were your black stuff is coming from. THe water system is completly sealed and cant be cleaned. However you can flush it. Use a cleaner with bleach in it to remove the mold from dispenser. You also may need to change the chute door . It leaking air is where the mold came from. Ihope this helps.
1 Put on rubber gloves and safety glasses before commencing the cleaning process.
2 Lay an old towel or drop cloth on the floor under the front of the washer to prevent floor damage as you clean.
3 Fill a plastic cup with bleach and dip a tooth brush into the bleach.
4 Remove the toothbrush and scrub the washing machine gasket with it to remove the black mold from it. Hold the gasket open with the fingers of your other hand so that you can clean the center grooves of the gasket where the most mold is likely to grow.
5 Rinse the toothbrush in the cup of bleach and continue cleaning until you have removed the mold from the entire gasket.
6 Wipe the gasket with a paper towel to remove excess bleach residue and any remaining mold.
If it is inside, it is probably mold growing. Front loaders are much more susceptible to mold growth as they seal up tighter, and we all tend to keep the door closed when it is not in use. Clean the inner door and bellows surfaces with a 50/50 bleach/water solution, applying liberally, and dump the rest into the tub of the washer. Add 1 more cup of bleach to the tub. Fill all of the dispenser cups with bleach. Run the hottest , longest cycle available with the hottest rinse cycle available. For us, it is the "sanitary" cycle. Run a normal cycle immediately thereafter to flush out residual bleach, and leave the door open. The cleaning along with the air drying will keep the mold from growing, and reduce the odors that these machines are famous for. Leave the door open between loads.
