I have a NewAir AI-200w. I believe I'm getting mold/mildew growing under the center insert where the water drains back into the reservoir. How can I remove this for good cleaning?


The best thing for removing mold and mildew is Lemon Juice and Water. Or White Vinegar and Water, mix about 20% solution, and apply with a spray bottle for best effect. Wash up with warm soapy water.
The reservoir simply pulls up 'n' out. I have also for your convenience a manual too below.

Heavy mold build up around rubber boot inside and out. clothes smell moldy when taken from finished cycle kenmore elite he4t model...


The following link can give you some advice on common causes of front loader washer odors and some preventive measures you can take to keep them from coming back:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r3608512-getting_rid_front_loader_mildew_odor

The most common causes of persistent odors comes from not leaving the door OPEN between washes. The manufacturer recommends this to allow the wash tub to air out and to prevent mold and mildew from forming.

NOTE: Residual water in the drain lines and pump reservoir is NORMAL. Leaving the door open will NOT make this water evaporate, but will allow constant air flow to prevent it from becoming stagnant.

A common secondary cause comes from debris becoming trapped in the rubber door bellow and/or drain pump. It is recommended that you pull back the rubber folds in the door bellow (gray rubber seal) and check for dirt, debris or small articles of clothing that may have become trapped there. Socks are a common thing that become trapped, and if left for a long period of time, become stagnant. The drain pump reservoir is another common place for things to collect and become stagnant.

If you need to check the drain pump, the following link explains how:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r3574284-checking_the_drain_pump_on_a_front_loade

You can use use a 50/50 mix of bleach and water to clean the door bellow thoroughly with a scrubbing pad to get rid of mold and mildew. Use the green kitchen type scrub pads as they are not as abrasive. Do not use steel wool. If the mold becomes permiated in the rubber and will not come off, you will need to replace the bellow to get rid of it. The following link explains how: http://www.fixya.com/support/r3574186-installing_a_door_bellow_on_a_front_load Replacement parts (if required) can be purchased from any of the following websites: searspartsdirect.com
pcappliancerepair.com
appliancepartspros.com
repairclinic.com

Prices vary between sites, so shop and compare. The first three sites listed also have helpful exploded view parts illustrations to assist you with locating and properly identifying the parts you may need.
All these are preventive measures that can drastically prevent odors, mold and mildew. Read through the advice given and post back and let me kow if you require additional assistance. I hope you find this information helpful.

The coffee side has started leaking profusely from the top, back of the water area when brewing.


There is a red hose that connects at the back and top of the unit. Make sure the hose has not come undone and also check that the top lid with the holes is not blocked with coffee grounds. However, the most probable problems will be the hose otherwise you will mostly have steam coming out the back.

Hope this helps!

Debris in water from side by side refrigerator


Could this be mold flaking off the water line or water reservoir. Remove the crisper drawers and you should be able to see the reservoir and weather or not it's clean.

Water left in steamer - need to clean clear tank


I'm willing to try this to clean the mold out of the steamer container and possibly the rest of the attachments:
1. Empty the water reservoir completely. 2. Place 20 mL of CLR or bleach into the reservoir. 3. Fill the reservoir with hot water. 4. Shake the reservoir to mix and let stand for about 1 hour. 5. Empty the reservoir completely. 6. Rinse the reservoir 3 or 4 times with cold water. 7. Fill the reservoir with distilled water. 8. Run the steamer into the ventilated air a couple of times to ensure that there is no CLR or bleach residue on the evaporation elements. Thus, there will be no bleach on your cloths.
I have the same problem and will try this out tomorrow. I will tell you how it turns out.

Mold


First with the iron cold fill the reservoir with white vinegar.  I would let this sit for a few hours and then pour the vinegar out of the iron. I would do this a couple of times until you see the mold is removed from reservoir. Next fill again with vinegar and run the iron on the steam setting, steaming a clean rag or towel until all of the vinegar is steamed out of the reservoir.  The vinegar will also remove any mineral deposits built up in the iron.
Next rinse the reservoir by filling it with water and emptying it completely a few times.  Follow this by filling it completely with water again and setting the iron to steam setting.  Use another clean rag or towel and steam it until all of the water has been steamed out of the reservoir.
In the future make sure to completely empty your iron after every use to prevent mineral build up and mold growth

Mold in water reservoir


Run a couple of cycles of white vinegar through the iron allowing it to steam out. The odor may not be the most pleasant but it will clean out the mold as well as any build up that accumulates on the elements. Make sure you run two more cycles of just plain water through the iron on some scrap fablic or an old towel as any of the loose debris will come through the steam holes. After doing this you will find that it runs smoother than ever!
