Mold spores are dangerous and a professional should be called to fix. You have a leak causing water to get in. Call a professional!

How to get rid of black mould?

Do a long hot wash, add bleach. Stop using fabric softener. If the rubber boot on the door (Front loaders) has been stained with black mould, you wont get the stains out. It will need a new gasket.

How to get rid of black residue from lg washing machine

The black residue indicates a mould problem. There seem to be a lot of people reporting this problem on the LG washing machines on numerous forums. Since you are dealing with mould you should exercise proper precautions, including wearing a mask, so you do not breathe in the mould. If mould gets into your lungs, you will never be able to get rid of it.

To clean up the mould use plenty of bleach. Make sure to remove the dispenser door to get at the spots where the mould tends to build up. To prevent it, leave the washing machine door open after every wash.

I have a 18month Electrolux 8kg front loader which has mould on the bottom part of the rubber seal. I have always kept the door open after every wash but the mould has set in. I have tried wiping it with...

You will find that wiping it dry, then painting it with thick household bleach and leaving it overnight will have an excellent effect on the staining. The rubber will tolerate the bleach without any problem. If one night doesn't quite cut through the mould, treat again the following night.

Just remember to wash the bleach away thoroughly, so that it doesn't affect any garments in the next wash!
