As far as the mold the only thing you can do is get the component replaced. or spend a few hours with a tooth brush and bleach . if you get it replace i strongly suggest that you take the light out and keep the door open thsi will prevent any more mold.

Mold


the best thing iv found to kill off mold is,,,"vinegar" white is best! but any will do,,mix up a good drop in a bucket and wash the mold off,,,it kills it stone dead,,, works on any thing you can wash with water too! wood,, walls,,,window's,,,doors,,,inside of boats,,,for your washer tip a bottol full of vinegar into the washer then do a warm wash with nothing in it,,(no washing powder!!!!) just plane water,,,also if when its not in use you could leave the door open thats good as well,,it needs a change of air going around it to stop this mold building up,,, your house may smell a little like a chip shop for a day or so,,but whats best,,,lung problems at a later date????and mold all over your house??? it spreds you know!!

Smell of mold and mold on rubber in front loader


If you don't leave the door open when not in use and not wipe the door dry and the door gasket dry, mold will build up as there is no air to let the moisture escape into. Makes sense, manufactures do no not say this in their manuals, I think they should !

Mold on the seal


on a 5500 you can scrub the seal with bleach and majic eraser. ths should remove it . it was caused by leaving door closed too long and not letting maching dry out . to prevent any front load from having this problem put a hand towel in the door opening . .

The rubber seal at the front of the machine has gone mouldy. I have cleaned it before with bleach but the mould comes back all the time


Front loaders are known for building up mold and the smell.
It’s caused by using liquid detergent which is made from animal fat. Use powder. And use the minimum amount.
It’s caused by using fabric softener. Dilute it 50/50 with water.
It’s caused by the water remaining in the tub between washes. Leave the door open to allow it to dry. .

Hi, Some of the best information that I have found has been on YouTube. Go there, and type in "smelly washer" or "moldy washer". There are a number of good tutorials there.

How do I get rid of mold on the seal ?


Bleach and water solution will get rid of the mold but will not deter future buildup. To prevent future growth of mold leave door open to dry out. Mold likes to grow in damp dark places. Hope this helps

Moldy door ring Maytag Neptune Frontloader & poor cleaning


This is an extremely annoying problem and a very effective solution is baking soda! You should place around 200 grams of baking soda into the empty drum and then run a full cycle hot or boil wash.

This is a very effective method of reducing and preventing mold in a w/machine. I would recommend you run this "maintenance" wash once per month to prevent further build up of mold in the machine.

You can purchase a replacement door ring if the mold is extremely stubborn. However the Baking Soda also has the effect of neutralising any residue and odour that may be associated with it.

Hope this helps. Please remember to rate my answer. Thank You.

Black mold on washer door seal


this is a very common problem with the neptune washers.
use a javex and hot water solution and scrub the rubber boot.
you should also do an acid wash. (hot wash with bleach, and no clothes) if there is mold on the boot it is inside the washer as well.

There is a way to prevent this. when the washer is not in use, hang a small towl on the washer door, and do not close the door.
this will allow for air movement in the washer
