Question about Hotpoint Aquarius WMA56 Front Load Washer
Dirt and grime always building up around door seal
This is a very common problem with a lot of users, it is mainly down to the way you are using your washer.
The most important factor is that you are probably doing a lot of low temp washes,eg:40oC.
This does not let the wash powders and detergents to work properly at these low temps, so consequently you get a build of slime and grease and bacteria which is actively growing.
At least once a month depending on how often you wash, do a 90oC hot wash with powder in, but no clothes in.
This is called a maintenance wash, and most manufactures are recommending this now in the user instructions.
The other thing to do now before it gets any worse, is thoroughly clean the door seal and glass with a scouring pad or steel wool pan scrubber you will not hurt the door seal by doing this, and remove as much of the grease etc that you can, pull back the door seal and get inside where you normally can't see.
You will find that the seal will be stained, but as long as you get off the worst, it should be o/k.
Hope this helps solve your prob.
Plz rate my solution.
Thanks, and a merry xmas.
