Re: Replacing door seal

Try washing the seal with jiff and a scouring pad in warm water.Depends on how well it is ground in.
You may have to replace with new seal.

I have a front loader washing machine. The rubber inside is going mouldy. I have tried to clean same without success - any suggestions!

Unfortunately, once the door seal goes mouldy it is impossible to get clean. Only option is to replace seal. Once seal is replaced, you need to wipe it dry after each wash and leave door ajar to prevent reoccurence of mould.

The rubber section of my Hotpoint WF640P has gone mouldy

The problem is basically caused by doing too many low temp washes.

The scum you refer to is actually bacteria that is bulding up on the door seal.

To avoid this problem reoccuring, the best thing to do is to have the door seal replaced, and periodically do a high temp wash with powder in, but without clothes..
This is called a maintenance wash, and is recommended by most manufactures
Also, after each wash, clean and dry the door seal, this will help prolong it's life.
Hope this helps answer your question.

Use tilex to remove the mold. Then see what happens. If the mold comes back right away it may be a problem with the rubber gasket not seating as it should. Let me know. And please rate my solution. thanks.

How to change a door seal on a hotpoint wma58

Firstly remove band holding front of seal then remove the screws from the door lock and push lock through.
Remove kick plate from bottom of machine &take out 2 screws holding front of machine.
Remove soap drawer &take out screws behind it then bring facia forward & slide to right to remove. Take care at this stage not to disturb wiring on cicuit board. An extra pair of hands would be helpfull to hold it.
Remove screws holding front as you did at bottom then lift and remove front panel.
Seal is now easily accessed.
Post back if any further assistance needed.
Thankyou for using Fixya.

Mouldy rubber seal

Check your exit hose spigot, it may be clogged. This is if your filter is all clean. There should be air for passage in the standpipe behind. Your hose should not fit airtight into the standpipe and neither too deep into it. Snaking out your standpipe would be good too. Regarding the mould; keep your door open after yur washing is done, (means dont shut it tight) it will help to dry the insides & prevent moulding. Only see your cat is not inside before starting a new wash.

And pl rate me if helped.................
