    Thank you, this took care of the existing problem. We found the real problem to be an installation issue; the hose from the disposal was not connected properly-which hopefully has been corrected now.

Black mold growing inside of the fridge


Scrub scrub scrub with a mild bleach solution, and then keep a couple of open boxed of Baking Soda inside, changing them frequently.

Inspect your door seals, I bet you will find a rip, tear or some other leak which is allowing warm, moist air into the fridge and encouraging the mold growth.

Also consider setting the temperature much colder to inhibit the mold growth.

Although there are many mold-killing solutions on the shelf at the hardware store, a good old fashioned mild Bleach solution is your best bet, as it is acceptable for use around food.

Samsung mold issues dishwasher DMT400


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.

Black scum forming forming on rubber seal on inside of washing machine door


  • 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.

    Black stains on door


    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.

    Best regards, --W/D--

    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.
