Cleaning rubber seal

I tried to clean all the gunk out of the rubber seal but can't get right against drum at the bottom. There are 3 square holes and I can see goo stuff.
How do I get to it to clean out?
After reading other posts I see how to take care of the "smelly" clothes problem.

Use a 1/2 cup of vinegar and pour it onto the rubber door seal.  Let it sit awhile then wipe dry.  The stains are very hard to get off once they're on.  You can also use baking soda to remove the odors.

We have a Frigidaire "Affinity" front loader it is leaving a puddle on the floor when we use it. I assume the rubber ring is bad has anyone changed it themselves? Is it a hard fix?

Are you sure it's the door seal? If it is they are normally just held in place with 2 metal rings, 1 at the edge of the seal at the door opening and one at the outer drum. Once you remove the front ring from the door opening you can gain access to the one at the drum. Removing the lid of the machine will also help and give you a bit more light.
Anyone with a bit of DIY know how should be able to replace it, an hour tops for a beginner.

Hi,maybe the draw dispencer is damaged,I wouldnt think it is the drum seal,what I would do is tilt the washing machine so that the top of the machine is leaning against the wall so that the front of the machine is of the ground,then while you get underneath the front on the floor with a torch get someone to put water in the dispencer and see if you can see where the water is leaking from,I hope this was some help,all the best.

WIXL 125 the rubber seal around the door has mould at the bottom where thre liitle hole is. It has stained and there is water sitting around the area. Can we replace the rubber and why has this...

Yes, the seal can be replaced, and the reason for the mould is that you are doing too many low temperature washes.
You should periodically do a max high temp wash to help keep the seal clean and stop it from smelling.

E 20 error code cleaned out the rubber boot thing it was stopped up put it back together still not working right getting e 20 still

  • Get the washer laying on it's side and using the access hole on the bottom carefully remove the screw clamp holding the large hole of the rubber housing to the tub drain (it will be obvious all other clips are green compression clips).

  • Carefully work the strainer out of this flexible rubber drain housing through the large hole.Clean it out and replace you will be good to go. Also remove all the hoses and check for a buildup of gunk. Hope this will fix your problem.

I have had the same problem with mine. I have started taking the rubber seal off at least once a month to clean it with bleach and water. I would not recommend doing this unless you are handy with tools. You might try cleaning the seal with bleach and water while it remains on the machine. Careful to pull the inner sealing lip down to get to the "Slime" behind it. Good Luck

Hope this helps you...

Frigidaire Front Load Washer

most washer door seals when fitted correctly have drain holes at the bottom that allow water to drain from the rings as you call them, this may not be one of those seals and the problem is annoying but there really is no actual cure as such apart from wiping it out after each wash to check if the door seal does have drain holes but is fitted wrong, look round the inner lip closest to the spinning drum to see if there are any holes, maybe higher up or near the top, if there are then it may be possible the seal was fitted wrong (if its not the factory original) the cure then is to replace the door seal and fit correctly some door seals have a large drain hole that is at the bottom that goes into the bottom of the drum (you can't see the pipe normally) this hole maybe blocked if thats the case try prodding it clear with something that wont damage the rubber (use common sense here) hope i have been of some help

Gunk in Front Loader

If you are talking about the gunk build up around the rubber DOOR BOOT, that is actually a common problem. You can take some cleaning rags with some bleach spray and wipe thoroughly around the entire door boot. Make sure you clean the rubber boot as well. About once a week you should run the machine with no clothes in it on the hottest cycle you have. Add some bleach in the dispenser and allow the machine to complete the cycle. This will kill any bacteria that is left inside the drum and drain lines. Now, preventing the problem from coming back will take a little diligence on your part. Routinely, clean the the door area as needed and LEAVE THE DOOR OPEN between washes. Because of the nature of these machines, the door seals tight and the drum is dark. This allows the build up of mildew over a period of time, because the tub is never allowed to dry out. A little water in the bottom of the drum is normal, but the door area needs to dry. I hope this is the problem you are describing and I hope this may help you.
