The mold is caused from too much soap. a front load uses such a small amount of water only 2 tablespoons of soap is needed. replace the boot and cut down on the soap

How do i clean Bosch WAE20261AU front loader washing machine


The lint will be in a removable filter and as for cleaning the rubber seal the black grime will most likely be mould. Try a good mould remover.

A build up of brown slimy mould which marks clothes after washing. The door seal is stained brown in places and the brown slime is building up in the folds of the doo seal. What can I do?


try manualy cleaning the door seal with bleach and then amonia, ( NOT TOGETHER, ONE AT A TIME )
then pour some amonia into the machine and run it. amonia and/or vinegar work great to clean washing machines. but please note : this should be done seldomly as Amonia is a corrosive towards electrical parts.... hope this helps.

How do you clean the mould build up off the flexible door seal of a front loading machine. Can I take out the door seal safely to do it. Westinghouse front loading washing machine model LF711C


Bleach:Water solution 1:2 should kill the mould effectively.

What they should have told you when you bought this machine and what it almost certainly says in the owners manual is that front-loading washing machines, all brands, are prone to this problem. You must wipe the rubber gasket/door seal off when done using. Every time.

Dumb, I know, but necessary.

Hello, our miele w5040 is about 6 years old and we


if you mostly use lower temperature washes a bacterial mould builds up inside the machine. it can be seen as a black residue in the soap dispenser drawer and in the folds of the rubber door seal. a grey sludge also builds up on the inside of the wash drum and the drain filter. doing at least one hot wash ( above 60 C ) a week can stop this happening.

Our front-loading HE washing machine delivers


try putting in 2 caps of a citrus or pine bleech straight in to the drum with some old rags. then select a boil wash. the rags will spray the water around the tub, the bleech will clean the tub and make it smell fresh. DON'T put any clothing in whilst doing this. if you are worried about bleech in the machine just select a rinse cycle after. i do this once every 3 months

Black mould round door seal


There are several reasons for this to happen.
the primary one is the fact that you are doing a lot of low temp washes, and this causes a build up of grease and dirt around the door seal, the mould you refer to is actually bacteria.
You must do a high temp wash at least once every 6 to 8 weeks, put powder and or detergent in as usual, but no washing, and let it do a full cycle.
This is called a maintenance wash and helps prevent what has happened to your m/c.
Thoroughly clean the door seal with a scouring pad or stainless steel wool, you will not harm the seal,
You will probably find the seal will be stained, but as long as you get all the mould etc off, it will be o/k.
Plz rate my solution.
Thanks

Washing machine does not wash clothes


You are possibly washing at the wrong temp, or not using sufficient powder or detergent.
The m/c is not rinsing properly, check that it is pumping o/k.
If there is a build up off slime and mould on your door seal, then you are definately washing at too low temp.
At least every 4 to 6 weeks, do a high temp wash with powder in but no clothes.
This is called a maintenance wash and helps to keep the inside parts clean..
If your door seal is stained, clean as best you can with a scourer pad or similar. You will not hurt the seal.

Thanks.

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.................
