a little patience is needed to replace this, but not terrible hard, youll need to remove the spring clamp holding it to the front panel(peeling back from just at the face youll see it will pop right off, then after that s removed there is another clamp in about hte 2 o;clock position that also needs to be removed, either a phillips, or a 9/32 socket, the new gasket will need to be stretched back over the inner tub rim andtightened( this will take patience as there is not a lot of hand room, and just like changing a bicycle tire as a kid , the rubber will have a tendency to "pop" of the rim until its fully on.

can be done just need PATIENCE!.. youll need ot remove the door assembly, and the 2 screws oppisirethe heing willalow for the front "u" shaped panel to be reomved.. next remove the 4 screws from with in the dispenser area, and then there are perhaps (6) 5/16 screws holding the nextfront bulkead and maintop assy down.. after removing theese screrws youll be able to lift eh main top back wards( prop it with something, a few more screws will release te hlatch assembly.. from here you can probably install the new bellow, remove the spring and wire, and the work the new bellow around the tub lip. a third hand will come in handy, after working it around , youll needto reconnect the tension spring..HARDEST PART OF JOB>>> REQUIRES PATIENCE!!!!!. sometimes this goes on for me with out issue in 5 min, other times 25 min and im PISSED AT IT!!!!!!!,, wrap the wirer around bottom of lip and your going to hold one end of spring, needlenose vice grips work perfectly. then with another set of needle nose. stretchthe spring togethr to lock the wire around.. whern you finally get this reassemble the latch and drop the top back down replace all teh screws, and finally you need to retuck the bellow into the front bulkhead( tabbs line it up nicley.. good luck!!!

SOURCE: Black mold growing on rubber
The solution? Plain old bleach.
Scrub rubber seal on door. Run the bleach through the machine once a month to keep clean.
Keep door open after each wash to ensure that it dries out properly.

Hello, this is usually the door seal, most machine incorporate a one piece combined door seal and outer drum seal(often just called a DOOR GASKET), the door seal are put in on the front panel first in the factory, then the drum assembly is put in and the seal pushed over the outer drum. This means a lot of stripping down has to be done just to replace the drum to the door seal.
