Frigidaire GLTF2940ES Front Load Washer

I purchased my washer 8/05. The bellows in moldy and smells. Water continuously stays in the bellows. My wash load smells. I have run bleach and also vinegar thru a wash and it still smells....horrible. I have tried washing & drying the inside of the bellows with cleaning solutions and nothnig works. Black mold is on the outside of the bellows, right inside the washer door. It is getting to the point I cannot use the washer because the clothes smell worse when coming out than when going in.

I would appreciate ANY help with this problem.

I purchased the 5-year warrant.

Use Affresh. It is a tablet that you put into your washer and run it alone. You can buy it where you buy your front load washers. I bought it at Best Buy. hope this helps

Have you tried using detergent HE (High Efficientcy) for front loaders? I had this problem and changed over to HE Detergent (Tide) and it solved my problem. Good Luck

Moldy smell in clothes, especially towels


need to clean the bellow ( rubber around door). theres a tablet you can buy called "Affresh". It will help to remove the moldy smell. just throw it in washer and run through a regular wash cycle. no clothes, just the tablet. If there is a clean cycle on the machine then use that cycle. Whenever you're finished washing, you should leave the door open for about 20-30 minutes so unit can air out. Also you should wipe around the glass and bellow after each use.

Fridgidaire front end washer


ok first of all, you should be using HE detergents, it uses less suds, regular detergent will slow your water from draining properly out of your washer. Another thing it is recommended that after you wash a load you dryer rubber gasket or leave door crack to dry out..

The machine smells moldy...


moldy smell, may not be mold at all, in fact most "moldy musty" smells actually come from user not using proper detergents, you NEED to be using an HE detergent and little amounts of that even. cut back on fabric \softneer if using, www.affresh.com new product to help alleviate this issue

Mold/mildew


Run a cycle with or without clothes using a 1/4 cup of beach diluted with 3/4 cup of water...max out the auto bleach dispenser with this solution. After using, leave the door open to allow the water within to evaporate. We had the same problem and this was the fix.
