If you are not referring to a front loader, please post back with a complete MODEL NUMBER. I hope you find this information helpful.

NOTE: Because of the mold and mildew problems associated with these washers, the manufacturer now includes many of these recommendations in the owner's manual.

first you have to wash the mold away the next solution is to go to home depot and pick up a product called affresh it cleans out the inside of your washer this is a once every 1-3 months product that will also prolong the life of your washer and all front loaders ive also found that this works great in top loaders as well

Stale odor within tub


Front loaders are known for building up mold and the smell.
It’s caused by using liquid detergent which is made from animal fat. Use powder. And use the minimum amount.
It’s caused by using fabric softener. Dilute it 50/50 with water.
It’s caused by the water remaining in the tub between washes. Leave the door open to allow it to dry. .
Pull the rubber door seal back and clean the mold off .
Affresh is recommended by some manufacturers. You run it through a wash cycle with it.

There is mold around the rubber and in the inside of the rubber on my Front Load. How can I get rid of this? Is there a product to clean front load washers?


Hi.

The mold is an enzime from the washing detergent or softener. It attacks certain rubbers and causes them to turn black. Eventually it will cause a musty smell which will go on the clothes.

The only way to remove is by replacing the door seal.
If you try bleach etc then it will cause the mold to get worse.

Hope this helps

My LG front loader washing machine has a black scum all over the rubber seal and it gets on my clothes and WILL NOT come out once it is on the clothes. I have tried bleach to get the stain off my clothes...


this is mold due to the amount of moisture built up during your wash cycle clean the scum using bleach but do not shut your door after you wash so the seal has an opportunity to dry

Mold in rubber ring front loader Fridgidare washer


Common problem. Clean the moulding as best you can, even scour with steel wool. Leave the door open so the machine will be dry when not in use or/and wipe the rubber after each use. You can try to cover up the odour by wiping with a rag moistened with vanilla essence. Otherwise fit a new rubber and keep it dry in future.

Frigidaire Front load washer mold


LEAVING DOOR OPEN BETWEEN USES ALLOWS WASHER TO BREATHE. BEING A CLOSED SYSTEM, IT'S KIND OF LIKE PUTTING A TUPPERWARE LID ON A BOWL WITH RESIDUE AND MOISTURE INSIDE AND LETTING IT GROW.
