Question about Frigidaire ATF6000ES Front Load Washer
There is so much mold on rubber gasket the smell is just awful. I use the correct detergent, we keep the door open whenever we are not using it, I have run bleach through it several times. This is the wors washing machine I have ever had.
The manufacturer said to wipe off the gasket with bleach and water - not with all the dark clothes we wash! There has to be something else to use, or some upgrade we can buy.
The door seal need to be pulled almost inside out to be a able to thoroughly clean it. I usually use a 50-50 mix of bleach water but other cleaning products like oxyclean may work better. After cleaning run a load with no clothes in it to remove any residue. Now if the mold has gotten deep into the rubber and still looks blackish after cleaning it will get moldy real soon and replacement will be the only solution. The key is from day one to leave the door open as you do and also wipe the door seal with a towel after each use. Not to defend frigidaire but most of the other brands have the same issues, some worse. If you need to replace the door seal or if the wire ring pops off when cleaning here is a link that should help http://appliancehelponline.com/washerdoorseal.html
