How to clean the mold of the rubber


If you have mold on the rubber gasket of your Duet front loader, I can almost assure you that you have lots of mold in other places in the machine. Front loading washing machine are almost hermetically sealed and if the door is left closed, the inside just never dries out. This is just a perfect environment for the growth of mold and other fungi. Once mold gets established in materials such as rubber gaskets, it can be very difficult if not impossible to eradicate because mold grows "roots" deep into the pores of the material, making it very difficult to remove. Eradicating the mold may result in damage to the gasket since my "cure" is to paint on full strength bleach on the moldy surfaces with a brush or sponge (wear gloves). Repeat if necessary. You may wind up having to replace the front door gasket to get all of it. It will probably take more than one application to fully eradicate the mold from the VISIBLE surfaces of the rubber gasket. If you remove the detergent dispenser and peer inside the opening, you may see a lot more mold inside the cavity. If you see mold inside the detergent dispenser cavity, imagine what the rest of the inside of your machine must look like. Do you run a periodic cleaning cycle as advised in the operating manual? Have you read the operating manual? Do you use the absolute minimum amount of HE (non foaming) detergent? Factory instructions for cleaning the door gasket call for mixing 3/4 cup of bleach into 1 gallon of warm water and applying this mixture to the affected gasket area, let stand 5 minutes and wipe the area down with a dry cloth. My experience has shown that this is a grossly inadequate concentration to deal with a deeply seated mold problem in the door gasket. To run the cleaning cycle, the factory calls for 2/3 cup of bleach to be added to the bleach dispenser. "Use of more than 2/3 cup of bleach will cause product damage OVER TIME". Initially, I would definitely consider using a whole lot more bleach than recommended and run two or more consecutive cleaning cycles. Then EVERY USE OF THE MACHINE: wipe the door gasket and all the creases and folds dry with a sponge, remove the detergent dispenser and wipe the cavity dry, leave the drawer out to dry on a clean towel, leave the door open, buy a cheapy plastic box fan and place it inside the machine and let it blow air around the inside of the machine for an hour or so to dry it off quickly, run a cleaning cycle at least once a month. If this sounds too involved or difficult, I would suggest switching to a top loading washer that is much less prone to develop mold growth as air can circulate in these types of machines to a much greater extent than the front loaders.

Your drain system is clogged with debris. Remove the filter from the bottom left door and look straight back inside the drain system, you will see more debris inside. Do not use a sharp object to remove the debris or you will puncture the rubber bellows. From the back of the machine, remove the back cover. At the bottom of the tub you will find a rubber drain hose that leads from the bottom the tank to the drain filter. Using your hand, gently squeeze the rubber drain hose to "massage" the leftover debris inside. This should help clean out the debris. WARNING: This will cause a major rush of water to come out so be prepared. Good luck

Cleaning rubber door boot


I am not sure how the Whirlpool rubber boot is constructed but the Maytag's can be pulled back enough to get a sponge, washcloth, etc. around it to clean it. If you can get to it try a product like odorban which will clear up any mold, mildew & icky smells without harming the rubber itself.

I want to clean can i run thru with vinger,bleach and what else can i do?


With the machine off, open the door and spray Clorox Clean-Up inside of the front rubber door seal/gasket. You should be able to gently flex the rubber seal to get inside of its cavity. This is where mold, etc. tends to accumulate. After a minute or so, brush or wipe away any debris that has accumulated. Be careful not to wear good clothes! Once you have completed the gasket/seal cleaning, begin a hot water cycle with no detergent to thoroughly rinse the bleach from the door seal/gasket.

From then on, occassionally glance inside the gasket/seal to see whether there is a build-up of mold, etc. and repeat the aforementioned process.

I would like to take off door rubber. What holds


I would not recommend that you remove door seal, as it is held on with a spring, or a screw type band inside, these can be very difficult to refit unless you know what you are doing.
Best to try clean as best you can with seal in situ.
Please rate my solution .
