Hi Kathy,
The water panel fills with mineral deposits. For only $10 - $14 you should replace the water panel once a year.
When you remove the old one. Warm water, or bleach or white vinegar will clean out the inside very nice. Take model number with you to the hardware store or Lowe's or home depot. There are three sizes to pick from. Your model number will be on the box for the panel you need. IMPORTANT.....When you install it make sure that the black sprayed on dot on the edge of the panel is the end that goes up.
This is very easy to do, you will be fine. Just change it every year for maximum and economical performance.
Good Luck

Hello,All the pads have a protectant(white) coating because the pad is aluminum and would rot out fairly quickly from getting wet.The slime is bacteria(fungus) not from the coating that forms from stagnant (sitting) water.Make sure the unit is draining out dry after each cycle.With the pad out pour vinegar OR bleach & water (10:1) to kill the mold in the drain pipe.Do not clean the pad at all ,it gets replaced.They sell an inexpensive wet floor alarm at the store that makes noise when wet.
