Question about Kenmore 43142 Front Load Washer
There is gunk build up between the drum and the belt .... any ideas how to get it out completely or how to prevent it? Thanks.
If you are talking about the gunk build up around the rubber DOOR BOOT, that is actually a common problem. You can take some cleaning rags with some bleach spray and wipe thoroughly around the entire door boot. Make sure you clean the rubber boot as well. About once a week you should run the machine with no clothes in it on the hottest cycle you have. Add some bleach in the dispenser and allow the machine to complete the cycle. This will kill any bacteria that is left inside the drum and drain lines. Now, preventing the problem from coming back will take a little diligence on your part. Routinely, clean the the door area as needed and LEAVE THE DOOR OPEN between washes. Because of the nature of these machines, the door seals tight and the drum is dark. This allows the build up of mildew over a period of time, because the tub is never allowed to dry out. A little water in the bottom of the drum is normal, but the door area needs to dry. I hope this is the problem you are describing and I hope this may help you.
