Mold in gasket

Will using clorox degrade the gasket over time? what about using vinegar- I just discovered the mold issue- it was disgusting. I think wiping with clorox will eliminate the surface mold, but it will grow back because the mold is inside the rubber.
Coincidentally, I have the same problem with the artificial deck I installed that was also supposed to be high end, ecologically observant. All the wisdom is that clorox does not eliminate black mold where the deck is concerned.
Drowning in mold-

Sorry to hear it'
your right that the beoot is stained but the active mold can be fixed first make sure your boot drain is clear, its a small hole at the botom of the grey "boot"
next buy some dish detergent crystals
one empty load with 1 cup of the dish detergent
this should kill you active molds
now always dry the boot between loads with a rag or towel
its a pain but it will eliminate the problem
make sure the drazin is clear every laod

it is not advisable to put actual bleach inside the washingmachine[or you could use a proprietary washing machine cleaner. Thepurpose of a maintenance wash is to remove any mold, bacteria, old detergentresidue and gunge. If using white vinegar, it is important to allow the washingmachine to fill for about 30 seconds before adding the vinegar, as the firstbit of water goes into the sump.

RUBBER LINER COLLECTING MOLD


I have been struggling with the same issue for a long time. Regular bleach and mold-killing products did not work. But I just tried Clorox "Washing Machine Cleaner" and was amazed. I scraped off the loose mold from the rubber gasket and then painted on the product, which is thicker than bleach. After about 20 min. I scrubbed it down with water and painted a second coat on the tough areas. No more mold. I also ran some through the machine per the instructions for good measure and ran another rinse cycle. I am in no way connected to Clorox, but I am so happy to be rid of this problem. Good luck. <!-- from fixya rte -->

What causes an orange stain in the tub of the dishwasher and around the edge of the door?


Dishwashers are prone to mold and mildew this time of year. Clean all of the orange stains with a solution of one cup of clorox bleach in two quarts of water. Then run the dishwasher on its hottest and longest cycle adding only two cups of vinegar through the door opening. That will clean up the entire insides and remove the clorox smell.

MOLD


Hello Friend, Sounds to me like you have a problem with the quality of your water supply going into your washer. Water quality could be a possibility. If the water contains alot of micro-organisms this could be the problem. When you are not using your front load washer the door remains closed trapping in moisture causing mold and mildew to grow. If you just repeat the cleaning process once again with bleach you should'nt have this problem anymore if you leave the washer door partially open when not in use. Happy to help, Tim.
