The mildew is a fungus that is always present in the air around us,it is similar to pennicilin(streptococus)so it does no harm to most of us.just smells awfull and looks horendous(you want to see it under a scope.....)it thrives on bread/dairy,in fact all food we like to eat.(although different varieties exist, in the bathroom, for example)
only defence is clean everything with clorine,but as soon as you close the door it will gain a foothold AGAIN.

Door gasket is black looks moldy?


Good Afternoon Friend,

I see that the door gasket on your Frigidaire Affinity washer, model# ATF7000ES, is black and looks moldy. It because the mildew is not just on the gasket, but it is in the tub and in the pump and discharge hose as well. You need to reduce/eliminate the mildew in those parts. There are a couple of things you should do to reduce the causes of mildew.

1. Run the machine once a month, using liquid bleach, on the clean-tub cycle to clean out the machine. You might need to repeat this a few times to completely clean out your machine.

2. Follow the manufacturer's instructions for the about and type of laundry detergent to use with your wash. Using too much detergent causes a buildup of detergent on the tub which encourages mildew growth.

3. After your final wash of the day, leave the door and laundry detergent open, wipe dry the gasket with a cloth.

I ask that you please follow up with a comment on the post, at your convenience, to advise if further troubleshooting is needed or if your refrigerator status has changed successfully.

-Best Regards-
WP

Ice smells like mildew! We purchased the refrigerator/freezer new 6 months ago. It does not seem to be a problem caused by other foods in the freezer. Model number: FFTR2126LW


Mildew smell in your ice is caused by one of three things. 1. Old, dirty, clogged water filter 2. Bad water quality from your house water supply 3. Ice that has not been used and sits in the bucket for time can become stale tasting.

Icemaker in brand new fridge makes ice that tastes like mildew


brand new?OK...first,did you flush the water filter by dispencing 2 pitchers of water through the door.wait,that it.basicly the water in your ice maker is the same water that comes out of your tap.you may find that you dont like the filtered water, there should be a bypass plug that can go in place of the filter.solution wise thats about it.

My washing machine has a strong mildew, musty smell when we haven't used it for a day. Cleaned the tap in lower left corner and use the HE soap. Help!!


Hello Friend, Your problem is simple to resolve. This is a common issue. It is possible that the water quality being delivered to the washer could contain higher than normal amounts of micro-organisms causing the growth of mold and mildew. Basically what is happening with your washer, when not in use the washer door remains closed trapping in moisture which is the perfect invironment for mold and mildew to grow. You should run a large empty load with bleach and from now on just leave the washer door partially open when not in use. This should resolve your problem. Happy to help, Tim.

Water Cooler - Water has mildew taste


I just put about six cups of white vinegar (not diluted) into the reservoir and let it sit for about an hour. Then I emptied that out and flushed a few pitchers of very hot water through. It seems to have worked quite well.

Odor that smells like gas going from the refrigerator


Mold and mildew can cause problems like this. It is even possible that a small animal may have invaded your home and gotten into the box somehow. Cleaning the inside of the box with a dilute bleach solution may help. For continuing odor absorption, place an open container, say a 1/4 cup, of baking soda (bicarbonate of soda) in the compartment. Change as often as once a week. The powder will absorb the odor.

Container idea for water


There really is no other way. The onnl one that makes a large opening is GE. Whirlpool has some that you can turn the water spout out to fill large glass's. But tho keep it on while you do something else, there not designed for that purpose.
