Water remains under rubber seal. Water too high in bleach dispen.
I have a three-year old front loading Frigidaire washing machine, I really like it. But, the water level seems too high in the bleach dispenser. It is at the "low" level line for the bleach. Also, water remains under the rubber seal around the door. I worry about mold, etc. forming in this area. Is there anything I can do about either problem?
Re: Water remains under rubber seal. Water too high in...
Did you try taking the dispenser tray apart and cleaning it? The exit ports tend to clog over time. Best thing I have found is to remove the tray at the end of wash day, rinse it out, dry it and put it only partially in the machine, thereby allowing air circulation. Some water will always remain at the end of the wash cycle...inherent in the design.
As for the gasket, you'll have to wipe it down at the end of wash day and leave the door open to dry everything out. I leave mine open all the time.

My GE washer model wcvh6400j0ww was leaking. May be standing water under your machine. The repair person
thought the gasket. It turned out to be the water in-let
(WH41X10118 and you will need seal WH41X10119) and not the gasket. He
ordered the gasket and took machine apart to replace and found cracked
pipe. Take your machines front off and make sure it is the gasket
leaking. Good Luck,
This is a comon problem In areas where miosture is high and the tempiture is warm. Try using bleach to clen it off with or you can use super clean to remove it from the rubber. Not touchingthe seal with your hands and clothes will help some to.
I have had the same problem with mine. I have started taking the rubber seal off at least once a month to clean it with bleach and water. I would not recommend doing this unless you are handy with tools. You might try cleaning the seal with bleach and water while it remains on the machine. Careful to pull the inner sealing lip down to get to the "Slime" behind it. Good Luck
If you know someone who owns a bar, ask them for about 1/2 pt of line cleaning fluid. Start your machine on a 60o wash (empty) and as soon as the water starts flowing into the powder drawer, slowly pour the line cleaner into the water flow. Let the machine go through it's normal cycle, then run the same cycle programme as soon as you can (immediatly if possible) using clean water. Following this action, get your finger and rub it along the inside of the drum, if it's squeekly clean it's solved, if it feels slightly slimely, run the water only wash again the completly to remove any further residue of the cleaner. The smell should go. Let me know how you get on, Regards Dave.
Two thing that you might try: Add two or three cups of bleach and have the machine run a cycle (with no clothes!!!). Second, always leave the door open after use to let it air out. Also, it wouldn't hurt to use straight bleach as a wipe to the entire rubber tub seal.
no fix ..ALL BRANDS have same issue just ck out other web sites best solution ..leave door open as much as possible ..clean out boot with bleach/water solution at least once a month..CHLORINE BLEACH!! and no not the answer you wanted but best answer you'll get and that from experience
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
