Kenmore Calypso washer has un-removable debri/scum

We tried many differernt ways like bleach or vinegar or even a product called afresh with no avail. The debri seems to come out most when we wash a big load such as a comforter.

I am trying to take the machine apart but I really can't figure out how. Any help is appreciated.

How to get mould of my quinny buzz seat cover??

I like a product called whizz mould and mildew remover have used this on many things before even on a mothercare pushchair hood but it was a waterproof hood so not as absorbent. Maybe do a spot test first somewhere inconspicuous.

My Zanussi TE962V is causing black marks/stains on all my whites. I tried cleaning it with a vinegar solution, but it seems to have made the problem worse, not better. Is there another way I can clean the...


Feel around the underside of the bellows seal near the drum. If you feel debris there, wipe as much of it out with paper towels as you can, then wipe the surfaces down with 50-50 bleach water, inside surfaces, and outside surfaces. Pour 2 cups of bleach into the tub, and fill all of the dispenser cups with bleach. Put just a sprinkle of soap in the tub, and run the hottest cycle available with the hottest rinse cycle available (for most, it is the "sanitary" cycle). When that cycle is complete, run a normal cycle to flush out any bleach residue.
Between wash cycles, leave the door open. This helps the machine dry out between cycles, which reduces the build-up of germs and molds in the washer.
If this cleaning cycle, and the drying effect of keeping the door open does not eliminate the problem, you may wish to replace the bellows seal.
There are other options, but try these first, as they usually do the trick. If you need to go deeper into it, all you need to do is re-post, and we'll all be right here, ready to help.
Best regards, --W/D--

Clothes dirtier after wash than before

hello. the hot water and bleach partially cleaned some of the builtup residue in your tub. If you can find a product called CLR [calcium, lime, rust] use a cup of that in your machine with a few old towels. Run your longest and hottest cycle. Repeat if necessary. Joe

Front loader smells like stale cigarettes during cycle

Make sure that you are using high efficiency (he) detergent. Pour 2 cups of vinegar in the tub and fill the detergent tray with vinegar. Run it on the hottest, longest cycle. You can also use a Front load cleaner such as Afresh, made by Whirpool. I think that Tide makes one too. Vinegar is usually readily available. At the end of washing for the day, leave the door to the washer slightly open so that fresh air can get in and dry it out keeping moldy, milduey smell down. If it mildews, use a rag and bleach water to clean the boot seal. Hope this helps.

Front loading Maytag Neptune doesnt drain all water

the washer has a low level of water in it at all times. it will never completely drain out unless you pump it. this is one of the reasons there is such a smell with these washers, i use vinegar in rinse cycle and i use bleach once sometimes twice a month to keep mold and mildew smell away.

Laundry smells like mildew after washing

Front load washers retain water that you cant see or get to. There are cleaners for washing machines available. I clean mine every month with alot of bleach , try pouring a half gallon of bleach in the soap insert on a normal wash cycle and an extra rinse would not hurt no clothes of course.

Gasoline smell in the washer

White vinegar is NEVER a bad choice and I would use that.. start a wash ( without clothes) and when the washer fills with water.. stop it and open the door... add a cup or two of white vinegar and let it cycle thru ..When completed, leave the door open to allow the inside to air out... You can also use a product sold at Home Depot and other home improvement places called AFRESH ... hope that helps...
