Question about Washing Machines
My washer is leaking slime onto my clothes. I have scrubber rubber with vinegar, let it dry, scrubbed again, then wiped clean with paper towels. I then ran a load with 2 cups of bleach. My delicates got slime from front load washer. How do I get this out???
Cleaning the rubber door gasket will not get rid of the slime issue. The slime comes from buildup on the outside of the washer drum. There are two causes for this. First, if you always close the washer door after use, then the moisture inside the drum cannot dissipate and the slime can form. Also, using the wrong type of detergent (or an excessive amount of the correct detergent) can cause the slime. There are front load washer cleaning products that you can purchase and run to clean the slime from the outside of the drum.
