CLOREX or any chlorine application. Apply full strength inside the box and under the machine as well. Open door and allow to air dry. Get Baking Powder made for refrigerators and let it absorb the chlorine smell. Replace with new baking powder boxes one the fridge is turned back on.
If you haven't washed it yet, lay the dress flat and pour baby powder, not corn starch, but real baby powder on the grease spot and let sit overnight or a day or two if necessary. When you shake powder off the dress and launder normally the grease should be gone. Air dry to make sure the grease is gone before drying normally. Baby powder works miracles on grease! Good Luck!
for weather stripping on your vehicle, if it is being stored use baby powder and work it in. If its being used regulary there are some great products out there 303, Vinylex, 3M Rubber Dressing, Wurths, etc. As for the door hinges. A white lithium grease should work great. Thank you, Lee
Check the door seal size. Measure your door or doors, and take down the make and model number.

2Order a replacement door seal.
It's easy to find them online. Make sure to check the model number for
your refrigerator when you order it. When it arrives, hold the new door
seal up against the old door seal to compare the size. The sizes are
rarely incorrect, but it will save you the trouble of doing the job
twice if you happened to receive the wrong door seal.
3Locate the screws.
Lift the edges of the seal and find the screws underneath that are
holding in the plastic liner and door seal. Often, the screws hold in a
plastic liner, which in turn clamps the door seal to the door.
4Loosen the screws.
Begin to loosen the screws that hold in the door seal. DO NOT take the
screws all of the way out. It is unnecessary and will create more of a
job for you. If at all possible, loosen only a few screws at a time, as
5Remove the old seal.
Once all of the screws are loose, the door seal should easily slide out
from behind the plastic liner. Don't be too forceful when doing this
step, since some plastic liners can be quite brittle and crumble if you
are too rough. If the plastic is old, replace it.
6Insert the new seal.
Begin slipping the small lip of the new door seal behind the plastic
liner of the fridge. The best method is to start in the top corners and
work your way around the door.
7Tighten the screws.
Once the door seal is in a certain section, you can begin tightening
the screws. Begin with the 8 corner screws, and then check the
alignment of the door while closed. Also check that the seal is even
and straight. If the door is twisted, you can easily manipulate the
door to twist back into shape whilst the screws are loose. Then tighten
the remaining screws.
Use a bit of baby powder or talcum powder to prevent sticking. Rub some
powder around the hinge side corners of the door seal, and where the
seal slides. This will help to prevent the door seal from twisting as
it meets the metal of the fridge. If this still doesn't prevent
twisting, then wedge a screwdriver under the seal as you close the door
and leave it shut for an hour.
9Check for gaps.
Look for any gaps in the door seal, especially at the top on the
opening side. These can form due to the door dropping or being out of
alignment. One way to check is to turn on a flashlight and place it
inside, then close the door and look for light.
10Fix any gaps in the door seal.
Pack out the seal underneath the areas where the door seal has the
gaps. This can be done with a small strip of weather stripping, as
shown here, or a bit of tightly rolled up paper under the door seal.
Alternatively, you can heat the door seal up with a hair dryer to fix
the gaps. This softens the door seal and allows you to stretch it.
11Check the corners.
If the application of powder hasn't prevented the door seal twisting,
then wedge a screwdriver under the seal as you close the door and leave
it shut for an hour. The door seal will then have enough time to mould
into the correct shape.
Do you have a stop on it that stops it from coming up? Is that where it is sticking? Mine used to stick up there and drive me nuts, go to step on the gas and nothing, I put a little baby powder on it and it worked fine. Check it out.
The seal on your door may not be sealing properly, when you close the door the seal helps create a vacuum which keeps your door closed firmly, you might need to replace the door seal, you could also try leveling your fridge by putting shimmys underneath the feet, you might also want to check to make sure there is nothing sticking out of your fridge such as drawers or food racks that may keep the door from closing all the way. good luck.
possible the wash arms are not rotating - a common cause of powder not being taken. check by opening the door when in use and look to see if arms rotate. if not, then remove the arms and clear the jets especially the angled jets at the end which cause the arm to rotate
