Pull ice maker out and clean it. Then make sure you have a fresh water filter on water supply. Mold in the freezer is uncommon if its truly freezing inside. You have dirty water coming in.

Mold in dryer


Mold grows in dark damp areas with reduced ventilation. Mold does not grow if humidity is below 60%.. If the area is air conditioned or dehumidified simply leave the door open. You could also park a "damp-rid" in the dryer when not in use. Don't forget to take it out before loading.

I would use warm water and vinegar. There are 2 small slots under the trim at the bottom, If you insert a small rigid pin in the slot on either side this will unlock the trim. Just pull toward you.

Mold on Ice dispenser


If there is mold on the outside of the ice dispenser you should wipe it down periodically/ weekly or more often with a mild mixture of soapy water with a touch of bleach in it. Make sure that nothing in the refrigerator is blocking the port that ice is deliver through or that ice is not building up around the inside of it. And do not let water or ice lay stagnant in the door tray at the bottom of the dispenser.

Good Luck and God Bless

Moldy door gasket, smelly clothes


Hi,
Mold growth is a common problem due to tight seals and poor drainage.
Pull back the rubber or plastic around the tub or basin to reveal the problem. You should also check your detergent dispenser as this is another common area for mold growth. Remove any visible mold. You can use a solution of water and dish detergent or bleach (1 part bleach to 10 parts water). You could also use bleach wipes to do this depending on how stubborn the mold is.
Because of the set-up of the washer, mold can also tend to grow in pipes, traps, and outside the drum where you can't see it.
You can run an empty load on the hottest water setting with 1 cup or more of bleach. Run an empty load on the hottest water setting with 1 cup or more of vinegar. Use a product designed to attack build-up from detergents and fabric softeners. Call a repair man to service the parts of the machine you can't see or attempt to do it yourself
However Mold needs moisture to grow. Leave your washer door and detergent dispenser cover open in between loads to allow for complete drying. This will dramatically decrease or eliminate the problem.
2. clean the machine monthly to stay away from the problem.
3. Switch to powder and/or low-sudsing detergent.


Let us know if you need further clarification else please accept the solution.

Mold/Bacteria formed between ice dispenser and dispenser lever Can dispenser be removed from lever for cleaning? If not, how to clean?


Use a bathroom mold and bacteria remover spray available from most supermarkets. Also spray down into the feeder on the inside of the door. Make sure you rinse the area thoroughly after use and run water through the water chiller dispenser and run some ice throughthe ice dispenser and throw these away. Then it should be safe to use.

No ice


pour some water in the ice mold and see if it will kick out a batch if it does get a water valve. If ice is already in the mold then replace the ice mold thermostat. If this is a newer ice maker get a hairdryer and make the mold rotate around. This sometimes gets the newer ones back on track.
