Question about Frigidaire ATF6000ES Front Load Washer
Mold build up around rubber in washer drum. Can not even scrub off with bleach .
I had this disgusting problem and learned from a chemist on line:
1) Use HE detergent.
2) Use a TINY amount of detergent.
I use about a tablespoon = 2 short pumps on the Tide dispenser. It is sufficient to totally clean the clothes without feeding the black mold. You will be surprised. The chemist described how a tiny amount does all that is necessary to rearrange the molecules to make dirt magnets. The detergent manufacturers encourage overuse. All the excess detergent just pollutes freshwater after having served no purpose.
3) Leave the door slightly ajar at all times for air circulation. I used the plastic cup lid from the liquid detergent as a prop.
4) I cleaned with citric acid (Glisten for dishwasher cleaning) and though it is still somewhat stained, there is no active growth.
5) With the above precautions, I do not have to be constantly cleaning the gasket.

Buy affresh washer cleaner. You can order it over the internet and this should take the mold off and then if you use this regularly like the package explains it will keep the washer from molding. I use this stuff on all the front loaders that come into my shop. This stuff works great.
