Question about Frigidaire FTF2140E 3.5 Cu. Ft. Front Loading Washer

Frigidaire FTF2140ES0 Front Loader

I have no problems with this machine other than the water that gathers in the front rubber ring after every wash. I am religious in wiping it out each time and it has still grown this brownish/black mold in the ring - it's hideous and it won't even come out now. I wipe the water out - always leave the door open in between washes and run a bleach cycle weekly and this has still happened. Any one else with the same problem/any solutions?

Do you leave the door open between washes? If not, the innards will stay damp, and you'll get mold.

Pretty much all front-loaders have this problem...

We have a Frigidaire "Affinity" front loader it is leaving a puddle on the floor when we use it. I assume the rubber ring is bad has anyone changed it themselves? Is it a hard fix?

Are you sure it's the door seal? If it is they are normally just held in place with 2 metal rings, 1 at the edge of the seal at the door opening and one at the outer drum. Once you remove the front ring from the door opening you can gain access to the one at the drum. Removing the lid of the machine will also help and give you a bit more light.
Anyone with a bit of DIY know how should be able to replace it, an hour tops for a beginner.

Final Spin Cycle Not Working

I unclogged the pump, it was really easy, and it fixed my problem (I have no mechanical know how)! let me explain how I did it!  I have the Frigidaire Front loader for two years, it was acting funny, wouldn't spin, wouldn't drain. My solution was quick and simple, per a solution already mentioned on this site.  In short, The rubber drain was clogged.  There were two cotton breast pads, that must have been in there for months.  Recently my washing machine would not drain, and therefore wouldn't even think about spinning fast.  To unclog, first take off the front bottom panel.  (There are two tight screws on the front bottom, next to the floor, I had to use a powerdrill to remove them, and tilt the machine against the wall to get to them).  Next, there was a black rubber accordian on the front right, where the water drains.  (remeber to unplug your washing machine, to avoid any shock or such!)  I simply unscrewed the big metal ring, (I think it's called a gasket). After unscrewing the metal ring, I could easily pull the rubber accordian down 2 inches, stick my hand in it, and pull out debris.  I pulled out debris for about 5 minutes, and was so excited because I knew my washer would work great again.  I simply put the rubber accordian part back on the lip, screwed the ring piece pretty tight. I used a towel to absorb a small amount of water, that got inside the washing machine.  Now, it is spinning a million miles per hour again.  I will put the rectangular bottom front panel back on in a few days, I just want to double check, there is no leak, which there is no reason to suspect, as removing and putting the metal ring back on was easy!.
