Frigidaire gallery fghd2455lf leaks from bottom of door


Thank you for your post, Jacques Lanthier!

From what you have described it sounds like you could have a loose or bad gasket on your Frigidaire dishwasher. Typically, to clean any seals you would remove them and wipe them off with a rag and warm water. If you continue to experience an issue with water leaking I would recommend replacing the gaskets. I hope this information has been helpful. -Matt

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. .

Water dripping onto floor. I believe it's from the


The cold air escaping from any gaps in the door seal is likely causing the condensation build up on the exterior of the fridge. You'll need to see if you can get the door seal (it's magnetic) to lay properly against the cabinet all around the door.

Sometimes a dirty seal will cause very small gaps that will let cold air escape, so give the seal and cabinet edge a good cleaning, making sure that the surfaces are clean and dry when done. Also, check to see if the seal is tight by using a dollar bill placed between the door seal and cabinet, all around the door. Any areas that you can easily pull the bill out should be checked for tears and/or cracks in the seal.

You might have to buy a nes seal if your's is badly damaged, but usually you can restore it to working shape with some patience and a good cleaning..

The other thing to check, since you didn't provide a model number and approximate age of the fridge, is to see if you have a "energy saver" switch inside the fridge section. This will allow you to turn on edge heaters to keep the condensation from forming on the exterior of the fridge. With the energy saver "on", the heaters are turned OFF, with the energy saver switch "off" the heaters are turned on. Heaters draw more power when turned on, hence the term "energy saver" being turned on, saves you money if you don't have condensation buildup on the exterior.

42'' monogram getting very hot between doors and in unit above


This is typical for frost-free refridgerators/freezers. In order to keep ice from buiding up on the interior walls of the freezer section, the manufacturer installs electric defrosting elements and extra "warming" elements in the outer edges of the cabinet, normally around the door openings to help mitigate any frost/ice build up and surface condensation that typically occurs on the exterior surfaces as the doors are opened and closed frequently.

These edge warmers stay very warm to keep ice and condensation from accumulating and will become VERY very warm (hot) when the fridge/freezer is in the once a day defrost cycle.

Unless you have an energy saver switch (GE trademark) inside the fridge section, which you can turn off, there is no way to disable these added elements. If you find that you're getting ice building up in the freezer, you'll need to turn off the energy saver switch to resolve that issue.

Energy Saver switch "ON" means these elements are off, while having the ES switch "OFF" means those heaters are running all the time and costing you more in energy consumption

Black film on turn dials and inside door and bottom of bin


I have a similar KitchenAid model and we always ran it in energy saver mode. Over time, there was a significant buildup of mold/mildew in the unit that was not easily noticed. 
Since that time, I took apart the inside of the unit and thoroughly cleaned it with bleach. 
Now, we never use the energy saver mode and we use the sanitizer to make sure it gets hot enough so that it kills the mold/mildew on every cycle. The mold has not come back in over a year.
