Question about Kenmore Washing Machines
I had this disgusting problem and learned from a chemist on line:
1) Use HE detergent.
2) Use a TINY amount of detergent.
I use about a tablespoon = 2 short pumps on the Tide dispenser. It is sufficient to totally clean the clothes without feeding the black mold. You will be surprised. The chemist described how a tiny amount does all that is necessary to rearrange the molecules to make dirt magnets. The detergent manufacturers encourage overuse. All the excess detergent just pollutes freshwater after having served no purpose.
3) Leave the door slightly ajar at all times for air circulation. I used the plastic cup lid from the liquid detergent as a prop.
4) I thoroughly cleaned with citric acid (Glisten for dishwasher cleaning) and though it is still somewhat stained, there is no active growth.
5) With the above precautions, I do not have to be constantly cleaning the gasket.

Run the washer with no clothes in it and put some bleach in it....then wipe off the mold that you can get off. Keep in mind that the mold will stain the seal and to prevent any more mold growing when you are not using the washer leave the door open or cracked so that the water can dry.
