I had that problem too...until I started using a spare wash cloth to wipe out around the rubber ring after every load and leave the door open to air dry. Of course, if you are doing load, after load, you just do this at the end. It works! And once in a while, you can do a load with white vinegar and baking soda and that will help with any smells you have.

Techniques for Cleaning Surface Mold

Surface molds grow in just about any damp location, such as the grout lines of a ceramic tiled shower. They\'re easy to scrub away with a mixture of 1/2 cup bleach, 1 qt. water and a little detergent. The bleach in the cleaning mixture kills the mold, and the detergent helps lift it off the surface so you can rinse it away so it won\'t return as fast. You can also buy a mildew cleaner at hardware stores, paint stores and most home centers.

Even for simple cleaning, protect yourself from contact with mold and the bleach solution by wearing a long-sleeve shirt and long pants as well as plastic or rubber gloves and goggles.

If the mold doesn\'t disappear after light scrubbing, reapply the cleaning mix and let it sit for a minute or two. Then lightly scrub again.

Seal the clean surfaces when they\'re thoroughly dry to slow future moisture penetration. Apply a grout sealer (available at tile shops and home centers) to tile joints.


Caution!

Don\'t mix ammonia or any detergent containing ammonia with bleach. The combination forms a poisonous gas.

Motor burn out


I think so. I believe the motor failed while there was water in the bucket. Over time the mold started growing, it was consuming the dirt on the inside of the bucket and utilizing the water contained therein.

Ice maker will spin when pushed but not ice comes out. seems that all is frozen inside.


How to Test the Ice Mold Heater


The mold heater is located under the ice cube mold and the connections extend into the support box, near the bottom. The heater is connected with two wires (labeled "A" below). The wires may be connected with slip-on connectors or the wires may lead to wire caps. Before disconnecting the wires, carefully label the wire placement.

Test the heater for resistance using a multimeter. Set the multimeter to the ohms setting X1. Touch one probe to each of the two terminals (or wires). The reading should be in the range of 60 to 90 ohms. If you get a significantly different reading, such as zero or infinity, then the mold heater is bad and needs to be replaced.

Any solutions for constant black mold growing in GE Monogram refrigerator? It is not a lack of cleaning problem. Never had a refrigerator do this before.


Permanently removing mold from a refrigerator is tricky because mold likes cold dark places (like refridgerators). However, I would try a stonger cleaning solution such as bleach. The attached link explains how to get rid of mold:

My machine has such a strong smell when the door is left open that is goes thru my whole house. I have black mold in the rubber ring - my machine is only 2 yrs old. Is LG helping their consumers?


The odor that you are experiencing may be from the growth of mold. Inside the washer, some small pools of water may be left standing and is harboring mold spores. Even though you may operate the washer regularly, the mold spores are not being washed away.I have a couple of tips that might help to eliminate odor issues in your washing machine. First, and the most effective in my research is to, leave the lid, or door to the unit open. By leaving the door open, it promotes air circulation and evaporation of standing water. The reduction in odor, will occur quickly and dramatically.

My second tip is to run the washer empty for a quick rinse cycle. Add an entire cup of bleach at the start of the cycle. The bleach is effective at destroying organisms, such as mold and bacteria. However, running it once will not be completely effective. I suggest pouring another cup of bleach into the wash tub, after the cycle has completed. This will leave bleach as the standing pool and should prevent the growth of mold or bacteria. However, if you do this, before doing a load of laundry you should run an empty rinse cycle again, to avoid damage to the clothes from the bleach left standing in the wash tub.

The rubber seal at the front of the machine has gone mouldy. I have cleaned it before with bleach but the mould comes back all the time


Front loaders are known for building up mold and the smell.
It’s caused by using liquid detergent which is made from animal fat. Use powder. And use the minimum amount.
It’s caused by using fabric softener. Dilute it 50/50 with water.
It’s caused by the water remaining in the tub between washes. Leave the door open to allow it to dry. .
