There is no easy way to clean these boots once they start to build up mold and grime.the best thing to do is replace the boot and when the unit has completed a wash cycle leave the door open for awhile until the boot has dried or simply dry off the boot after each wash cycle

Engine is not starting very well. After much cranking and almost starting, it runs, just. If throttle is moved up or down it stalls. What else can I do ?


not enough detail as to make and model but if it is a carby engine then the main jets and idler jets are blocked
the rubber components from the tank to carby break down internally and small pieces of rubber get to the carby
water and corrosion are also other problems associated with this fault
all out boards exhaust out the prop and by running the engine in a drum , then the oil in the drum is the oil and smoke collected by the water in the drum
While this is an excellent way of running a motor , remember that the oil mixture is being recirculated through the water pump in the leg and that will cause problems if you run the engine then leave it unused for a period of time
The rubber of the pump impeller will crack and fail when again used
Take it to a service center and get a proper diagnosis done and a quote

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.

RUBBER LINER COLLECTING MOLD


I have been struggling with the same issue for a long time. Regular bleach and mold-killing products did not work. But I just tried Clorox "Washing Machine Cleaner" and was amazed. I scraped off the loose mold from the rubber gasket and then painted on the product, which is thicker than bleach. After about 20 min. I scrubbed it down with water and painted a second coat on the tough areas. No more mold. I also ran some through the machine per the instructions for good measure and ran another rinse cycle. I am in no way connected to Clorox, but I am so happy to be rid of this problem. Good luck. <!-- from fixya rte -->

Mildrew, stale water smell in laundry


Run a very hot wash on your machine with no load

Fill a bucket with a strong solution of soda crystals and pour it into the machine first

Add some more crystals to the soap dispenser

Use an old fashioned soap powder for a couple of washes as well and reduce the load slightly

Modern soap powders do not contain certain bleaches and soda and the 40 degree wash leaves body fats and oils inside which cause odours

Water stays in drum after cycle is complete and odor


I think from what you have said, that you have a pump problem. The water pump on most washers collect all sorts of bits and pieces including small coins. You may be able to clean out the pump if it is not a sealed unit.

Lint


Unfortunately that is one thing the engineers forgot to put on this unit, a lint trap. Over time the other thing that will happen is the plastic venting will clog and your drying will take longer. When this happens you have to open the unit and clean it out, not that easy a task.
