How do you get rid of mold smell in washing machine


Hello friend, thanks for your post!

I understand that you have a mold smell developing inside of your Frigidaire washer. I would normally recommend using a clean wash cycle with either one cup of bleach or one pouch of Tide Washing Machine Cleaner. If you do not have a clean wash cycle on your washer you could also use hot water and a regular cycle with a cup of bleach to clean out your washer.

You should also check over your gasket to assure there is no mold buildup, if you do locate mold inside of your gasket you can use bleach to help get rid of any residue. I hope this information is helpful. -Matt

How to clean the mold of the rubber


If you have mold on the rubber gasket of your Duet front loader, I can almost assure you that you have lots of mold in other places in the machine. Front loading washing machine are almost hermetically sealed and if the door is left closed, the inside just never dries out. This is just a perfect environment for the growth of mold and other fungi. Once mold gets established in materials such as rubber gaskets, it can be very difficult if not impossible to eradicate because mold grows "roots" deep into the pores of the material, making it very difficult to remove. Eradicating the mold may result in damage to the gasket since my "cure" is to paint on full strength bleach on the moldy surfaces with a brush or sponge (wear gloves). Repeat if necessary. You may wind up having to replace the front door gasket to get all of it. It will probably take more than one application to fully eradicate the mold from the VISIBLE surfaces of the rubber gasket. If you remove the detergent dispenser and peer inside the opening, you may see a lot more mold inside the cavity. If you see mold inside the detergent dispenser cavity, imagine what the rest of the inside of your machine must look like. Do you run a periodic cleaning cycle as advised in the operating manual? Have you read the operating manual? Do you use the absolute minimum amount of HE (non foaming) detergent? Factory instructions for cleaning the door gasket call for mixing 3/4 cup of bleach into 1 gallon of warm water and applying this mixture to the affected gasket area, let stand 5 minutes and wipe the area down with a dry cloth. My experience has shown that this is a grossly inadequate concentration to deal with a deeply seated mold problem in the door gasket. To run the cleaning cycle, the factory calls for 2/3 cup of bleach to be added to the bleach dispenser. "Use of more than 2/3 cup of bleach will cause product damage OVER TIME". Initially, I would definitely consider using a whole lot more bleach than recommended and run two or more consecutive cleaning cycles. Then EVERY USE OF THE MACHINE: wipe the door gasket and all the creases and folds dry with a sponge, remove the detergent dispenser and wipe the cavity dry, leave the drawer out to dry on a clean towel, leave the door open, buy a cheapy plastic box fan and place it inside the machine and let it blow air around the inside of the machine for an hour or so to dry it off quickly, run a cleaning cycle at least once a month. If this sounds too involved or difficult, I would suggest switching to a top loading washer that is much less prone to develop mold growth as air can circulate in these types of machines to a much greater extent than the front loaders.

Techniques for Cleaning Surface Mold

Surface molds grow in just about any damp location, such as the grout lines of a ceramic tiled shower. They\'re easy to scrub away with a mixture of 1/2 cup bleach, 1 qt. water and a little detergent. The bleach in the cleaning mixture kills the mold, and the detergent helps lift it off the surface so you can rinse it away so it won\'t return as fast. You can also buy a mildew cleaner at hardware stores, paint stores and most home centers.

Even for simple cleaning, protect yourself from contact with mold and the bleach solution by wearing a long-sleeve shirt and long pants as well as plastic or rubber gloves and goggles.

If the mold doesn\'t disappear after light scrubbing, reapply the cleaning mix and let it sit for a minute or two. Then lightly scrub again.

Seal the clean surfaces when they\'re thoroughly dry to slow future moisture penetration. Apply a grout sealer (available at tile shops and home centers) to tile joints.


Caution!

Don\'t mix ammonia or any detergent containing ammonia with bleach. The combination forms a poisonous gas.

After taking my AC out of storage for the year I just discovered Black Mold growing inside the unit . Is there a way to take off that air flow screen and get in there to clean it out? What would be a...


remove the screen to get to it but follow these precautions.
In order to get mold out of various surfaces, it is important to first obtain proper protective gear. You should check to make sure you have all the necessary protection before you start, such as goggles and a disposable outfit which you can wear during the cleaning.

The first step is to wet the moldy area with water and soap spray. This stops the mold from continuing to spread through the air, which it will do if you do not spray it first. Then, you can use a vacuum to **** away remaining mold spores from the affected area and any surfaces close by which might also be affected by mold spores.

Next, you want to be sure to rinse all areas where you have scrubbed. You can use a wet-dry vac if necessary if too much water has collected. You should then take some bleach and water and apply it to the surface where containing the black mold. Warning: do not mix bleach and ammonia! This can lead to a deadly combination of gases. Make sure you follow the instructions on your cleaning ingredients labels.

You will probably have to leave the solution on the affected area for 6-8 hours or thereabouts. It should be able to dry on its own. You can also use fans, dehumidifiers, and any other type of air circulation device to let the area dry as quickly as possible.

It is important to note, however, that it is very important to let the mold dry; otherwise, it will reproduce. Every mold spore must have a chance to be completely wiped out to prevent it from coming back at any further date. Once the entire contaminated area has been scrubbed away, it should be okay to start using the previously affected room again for any usual purposes.

Ultimately, black mold removal must be done with care and caution. You must ensure that every surface which has been affected is thoroughly cleaned. If it is not, you run the risk of mold returning which can cause serious health problems, as mold is a deadly substance and can create huge issues for any house or building which is affected by it.

Be sure to properly protect yourself when cleaning non-porous materials or any other household surfaces while you remove mold, both to prevent damage from the mold itself and from the chemicals you use to clean it away. This is very important to ensure good safety and preventative measures for mold removal and permanent care and treatment of the moldy spots.

Any solutions for constant black mold growing in GE Monogram refrigerator? It is not a lack of cleaning problem. Never had a refrigerator do this before.


Permanently removing mold from a refrigerator is tricky because mold likes cold dark places (like refridgerators). However, I would try a stonger cleaning solution such as bleach. The attached link explains how to get rid of mold:
