Question about Bosch Nexxt Premium WFMC6400UC Front Load Washer

1 Answer

Mouldy rubber seal

My Nexxt washer is less than 2 years old, and the grey rubber seal rings inside the door are all mouldy. I have tried to clean them with many different products including straight bleach, but nothing seems to remove the discoloration. What can I do , short of replacing the rings?

By the way, I never have been able to figure out anything but the basic settings. Is there an independent spin setting? I have had loads that were too wet when they were finished, and I can't find a way to just run the spin cycle again.

Re: mouldy rubber seal

Check your exit hose spigot, it may be clogged. This is if your filter is all clean. There should be air for passage in the standpipe behind. Your hose should not fit airtight into the standpipe and neither too deep into it. Snaking out your standpipe would be good too. Regarding the mould; keep your door open after yur washing is done, (means dont shut it tight) it will help to dry the insides & prevent moulding. Only see your cat is not inside before starting a new wash.

And pl rate me if helped.................

I have a front loader washing machine. The rubber inside is going mouldy. I have tried to clean same without success - any suggestions!

Unfortunately, once the door seal goes mouldy it is impossible to get clean. Only option is to replace seal. Once seal is replaced, you need to wipe it dry after each wash and leave door ajar to prevent reoccurence of mould.

The rubber section of my Hotpoint WF640P has gone mouldy

The problem is basically caused by doing too many low temp washes.

The scum you refer to is actually bacteria that is bulding up on the door seal.

To avoid this problem reoccuring, the best thing to do is to have the door seal replaced, and periodically do a high temp wash with powder in, but without clothes..
This is called a maintenance wash, and is recommended by most manufactures
Also, after each wash, clean and dry the door seal, this will help prolong it's life.
Hope this helps answer your question.

Metal ring aroound rubber seal fell off.

Start with the spring at the bottom, work the retainer around until the seal starts to pull away from the washer. Now grip the loop that the spring attaches to on the side that isn't in place and open the retainer. Push the retainer in place and release the spring.
