Question about Frigidaire ATF6000ES Front Load Washer

Dirt around the rubber insert!!

We have had a problem with dirt coating the rubber insert of the washer.
It is not a gradual problem, one wash it is not there and the next time it has appeared. We are a family of two and our clothes are not dirty enough to cause this problem. The machine is about eight years old.

Your washing machine probably just has a build up of dirt in the basket. When you look inside the basket you see all those holes that are all over it. Dirt will stick inside there and after time will start coming out during washes. A simple thing that you can do to fix this is run some vinegar through the wash. Pour it in the basket, the soap, fabric softener, and bleach dispensers. Wash on hot and extra large load. Make sure no clothes are in it of course. This is something you can do every few months or so. Not only will it clean out the machine but it will clean out all the hoses and any hard water deposits. Your clothes will start smelling better and looking cleaner. Give that a try though. If your machine is 8 years old chances are this is the problem. Let me know if you have any other questions and let me know if this is helpful to you. Good luck and I am always happy to help out.

    No problem. Yeah, I have a tip on my profile about cleaning washers and dishwasher a cheaper way with the vinegar. There are all of those different products out there but I always tell people, why pay that much for something that vinegar can fix. Do try the vinegar though, it will save you a lot of money in the long run. Let me know if you need anything else.

Lg washer leaving black greasy marks on clothes


This is usually to do with fabric softener. Dilute it with more water. The fabric softener makes clots, and these make the marks on your clothing.

Hope it helps

My Ge Adora washer fabric softner dispenser


You have low water pressure which wont reach the dispenser drawer during rinse cycle. Clean the feed pipe in case there's dirt in the feed gauze located at the back of the machine. The mould on the rubber is dirt in the machinme. A mixture of 1 cap of bleach and 1 small tub of Swarfega mixed with water and put into the drum on an empty wash will stop it geting worse but it cant be removed.

I have a dirty rubber inner Bosch Maxx 1200 Front Loading Washing


First clean around the rubber with some mould and mildew cleaner for bathrooms - available from most supermarkets.

This is a natural accumulation of waste detergent, fabric softener, fibres and dirt build up that is being attacked by bacteria and eventually decomposes into a sludge / goo and then eventually starts smelling bad as well.

To keep the machine clean of waste build up and to keep any bad odours away:

1. Remove all items from the washer.
2. Open the dispenser drawer and 2/3 cup (160 mL) of liquid chlorine bleach to the bleach compartment. DO NOT use more than 2/3 cup (160mL) of bleach per cycle as this will lead to product damage.
3. Close the washer door and dispenser drawer.
4. Select the Clean Washer cycle or a full wash cotton 104 F wash (40 C). DO NOT use any higher temperature as this will cause unnecessary fumes
5. Press Start and allow cycle to complete.
6. After the cycle is complete, leave the door open slightly to allow ventilation and drying of the washer interior.
7. Repeat the cleaning procedure monthly

Washer is leaving dirty spots on clothes


If you use fabric softener it may be from the softener. Dilute your softener 50% before pouring it in.

Dirt streaks appear after laundering


Grease seal for the bearings need to be replace. Unless you are a DIYer this is an expensive repair. Labor to install a new grease seal is about 400 to 500 dollars depending on the area. Parts will run about 100 to 150 dollars. The grease seal is cheap about a $10.00 part, but since ypou have the washer torn apart, and the grease seal has fail, you should also replace the bearings.

Duet 6hw9150p leaks when i put a full load


Is the door seal dirty?
A dirty door seal can cause a leak. Remove and clean any dirt or deposits around the inner door seal with a damp cloth. The door glass seals against the rubber seal; dirt or deposits can prevent a proper seal and cause leaks.

Flakes of dirt on washing


Is this perhaps a second hand machine or it has possibily been stored away for some time? When a washer dries out inside ( behind the washer bowl ) and is then put back in service, dirt from years of use caked on insides flakes away ( like a dry leaf crumbles) and re-enters the wash and can end up on washed clothing. The only way to stop this is complete removal of washer bowl , scrub and clean insides to remove caked on dirt - reassembly. problem fixed !
