Problems with Rubber Door Sill

The rubber sill around my door holds water and then the washer always smells sour. This washer has done this since I have had it. I purchased August 2006.

I had a service person come out this week and he told me to leave the door open or get a top loader. I am returning it. The smell is horrible.

on all front loaders, the smell comes from not been used every day, #1, and water sit at the bottom of the drum, is always water in the system from the top of the drain hose to the pump, and they, the manufacture recommend that you use some chemical once per month to clean the unit.
this is what I do. get a bucket of water and bleach 3 water 1 part bleach, get a rug that you do not need any more. wet the rug and with your hand open the door and put the rug unter the rubber around the glass door, in other worth's, the rubber that connects the door to the drum bucket rinclos and water and other material stays there, building mildew, would be good to wear a globe, and clean the inside of these rubber real nice, go around several times to make sure you don't miss a spot., the cloth well come out black means it is loaded. then put the rest of the water and bleach in the machine, add 2 caps of bleach in the machine, fill it to hi and let it stay for 1 hour or more in the drum, then have a gentle cycle, these well clean the rest of the unit. one more thing, if you have members of the family that forget coins or papers in they pocket. may have to do more work to clean and drain the unit, just let me know I well help you.

What is the drivers side hinge pillar panel and the drivers side door sill panel


The windshield metal post from the roof to the bottom
of the door sill is called an A -pillar
That is what your door hinges are bolted to

The metal to your right as you enter the vehicle is
called the B-pillar
That is the one with the drivers door catch

The roof down to the door sill on the rear door of a car
or rear window downward is called a C-pillar

You may hear those terms if you watch a NASCAR race

The door sills are the metal sometimes covered with plastic
you swing your feet over to get in at the bottom between A & B
pillar

You may see rubber or some type covering just past the hinges
as you look into the front fenders

Inside next to the driver or passengers feet ,on the inside,
are what is called kick panels,inside sheet metal on A Pillars

you could look for a build up of muck- old soap powder etc around the main door rubber, there are places where the muck will collect. put your fingers right inside the door rubber as there are gaps that are hidden . this muck builds up and causes a horrible smell

Smell from washer ,have sanitized but comes back in a day or so.have cleaned filter and wiped the rubber sill around the door enterance.still has smell like cigeretts.


you have a old soap biuld up beteen your tubs and unless you clear that away it will keep comming back

i usually advise getting a box of dish detergent
not soap,,,, dry crystals,,, i cup in an empty load
the crystals were desinged for much hotter water so they woint dislove as rapidly,,, there by become lilltle scrub brushes fro your inner tub

this should help,,, but also cut back on your soap,
check a dry towel, put it in the sink and shakke it
this should help
have a great day

Rear Window failure


3 routes

1. Could be a broken wire from the door to the a-pillar in the rubber boot. remove the rubber boot, and run the wires for a brake in them ( missing the return for the door latch switch ).

2. Problem with the door latch switch, usually the symptom is the door ajar indicator is always on, and dome lamp won't turn off.

3. A broken wire in the driver's side door sill. This is either towards the front, by the hood latch, or towards the back, where the loom routes up the c-pillar. It will be a single wire spliced to 2 other wires, and it looks like hockey tape is used to cover the splice. Might also have signs of water in the door sill channel.

Whirlpool duet front loader washer


Mold and bacteria in your door seal is a symptom of problems deeper inside the unit. All washers - not just Whirlpool, have this problem. The area of worst buildup is always on the inside of the plastic outer tub just above the normal waterline where suds and soiled water splash up and don't get rinsed out. To clean this problem area add 1 or 2 caps of smelly washer cleaner to a full load of laundry. The added bulk of the laundry will raise the water level to include the "splash area". Intermittently pause to soak more extreme cases.

Smell


this is a common problem with all front loaders. you need to manually clean the boot, rubber seal, with bleach and water but when done with that you need to put 1 1/2 cups of bleach in the soap dispeners, run a hot wash with no clothes after that run another rinse to be sure all the bleach is out of washer. inbetween washes, leave washer door open (best) or cracked if no room to leave it open
