How to clean the inside seal of a frididaire front load washer


Good Afternoon Friend,

I understand you want to know how to clean the inside seal of your Frigidaire washer, model# ATF7000E. Below are instructions for cleaning the inside of your washer, including the seal:

• Remove items from the washer as soon as the cycle ends. Excess wrinkling, color transfer, and odors may develop in items left in the washer.
• Before cleaning the washer interior, unplug the electrical power cord to avoid electrical shock hazards.
• Dry around the washer door opening, flexible gasket, and door glass. These areas should always be clean to ensure a water tight seal.
• When extremely soiled items have been washed, a dirty residue may remain on the drum. Remove this by wiping the drum with a nonabrasive household cleanser. Rinse thoroughly with water.
• Periodically, wipe dry the bottom of the flexible gasket to remove lint and other debris.
• The plastic drum vanes may become stained from fabric dye. Clean these parts with a nonabrasive household cleanser. This prevents dye transfer to future loads.

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 appliances status has changed successfully. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

Tip

Allways clean your filter on your washer


by cleaning your pump filter at leased once a month will make your washer perform better and last longer. it will stop problems accuring such as (door will not open ) (the machine will not spin on final spin ) (wet cloths) (un even loads) (dirty cloths) (smell & mould ) another good tip is dry off the rubber door seal after use and sprinkle a little talk powder on it this will stop it staining with mould.

Dirty door seal


You can first try cleaning out the drum of your machine. Run it without anything in it, using 1/2 gallon of Vinegar instead of soap. Hot water will work best. Most hardware stores, or bestbuy,sears,etc. Have packets of cleaning agents you can use instead of the vinegar. You can also use brake fluid for cars on a rag and wipe down the door seal to clean it, then run it through a whites cycle to remove any leftover residue.
Hope this helps!

I have a Frigidaire front loading washer that is beginning to smell and I thought I should check the "outlet filter." Well it doesn't appear I have one or hopefully I just can't find it.


It could be where the drain pipe is going into the drain.
A lot of machines drain into the water system are not sealed. (ie pipe just fits in and there is an air gap).
You can get fittings that seal the gap so you dont get smells.

My Bosch Maxx 2000 WFO 2060 is leaking from the bottom. Could it be that a filter somewhere needs to be cleaned? If so where is the filter located?


The filter is usually located at the bottom right front of washer, sometimes behind a removeable cover, or a drop down flap.If you can locate it, then unscrew it anti-clockwise to remove and clean it.
There is also a possibility that there could be a hole or tear in the door seal so check the seal as well.
Hope this is of some help to you .

odor in washer
• Water supply taps are not
open fully.
• Water line hoses are kinked,
pinched, or bent.
• Water inlet filters are clogged.
• Water pressure to tap or
house is too low.

plugged in.
• House fuse is blown, circuit
breaker has tripped, or power
outage has occurred.
• The door is not closed
properly.
• Incorrect or too much

• Make sure that the water taps are open fully.

careful when moving the washer.

section.
• Check another faucet in the house to make sure that
household water pressure is adequate.
• Make sure that the plug is plugged securely into a
grounded, 3-prong, 120-VAC, 60-Hz. outlet.

have it corrected by a qualified electrician.
• Make sure that the door is closed properly and press
the START/PAUSE button. After starting a cycle, it
may take a few moments before the drum begins to
turn or spin. The washer will not spin unless the door
is locked (DOOR LOCK will appear in the display).
• If the door is closed and locked and the open door
error message is displayed, call for service.
• Use only HE (High-Efficiency) detergent in accordance with the
manufacturer’s instructions.
• Run the TUB CLEAN cycle regularly. Be sure to wipe around and
under the door seal frequently.
• Clean around door seal/glass to prevent odor or mildew:
1. wipe dry the door seal/glass and the door opening area
2. wipe around the inner drum/door seal and the lower door seal

Duet 6hw9150p leaks when i put a full load


Is the door seal dirty?
A dirty door seal can cause a leak. Remove and clean any dirt or deposits around the inner door seal with a damp cloth. The door glass seals against the rubber seal; dirt or deposits can prevent a proper seal and cause leaks.
