Hi, A bleach based cleaner should improve things. It sounds like its a form of mildew , an airbourne fungus that likes damp places. Once bleached it should stay clear for a while. Make sure you rinse it after to avoid damaging your clothes. Hope this helps, Nick.

Yes as nicklfixit advises use bleach on it and LET IT SOAK for a while.
At one workshop we used to spray bleach and leave it for at least half an hour and then just jet-washing it and everything comes of very easily, and the rubber looks like new again

Good luck

For the pump try taking filter back out and putting back again for smell clean out the rubber door seal with soapy water after the door seal is clean clean the despencer draw fully by taking it out. When you washed the seal and draw get washing machine clean for local super market and do a 95oc wash it should smell nice now if not could be drains hope this helps.

The rubber section of my Hotpoint WF640P has gone mouldy


The problem is basically caused by doing too many low temp washes.

The scum you refer to is actually bacteria that is bulding up on the door seal.

To avoid this problem reoccuring, the best thing to do is to have the door seal replaced, and periodically do a high temp wash with powder in, but without clothes..
This is called a maintenance wash, and is recommended by most manufactures
Also, after each wash, clean and dry the door seal, this will help prolong it's life.
Hope this helps answer your question.

thanks.

If ther is no filter at the front of washer, then remove lower rear panel of washer.
Locate and remove large black hose fastened to bottom of drum.
Remove and clean filter inside hose, also remove hose onto pump, and check for obstruction here and in the pump.

Grey scum marking clothes


Power off the mains. The filter is located behind the silver plate at the back of the machine at the bottom. Four screws hold it on. Drain out all the water. The filter is inside the big black rubber hose attached between the pump and the main drum. Remove the plastic clip holding it to the pump unit and then the metal cir clip holding it to the main drum. Inside is a white molded cone and a big white ball which floats. You will find a lot of junk here, clean out thoroughly. To refit put white cone back inside just as you found it, at the bottom, fit ball back into the cone. Attach to the bottom to the drum and re-fasten the cir clip. Finally reconnect the gator to the pump unit and tighten the plastic clip. Check out the pump too before reconnecting.

And rate me nice pl for the free help!

Hotpoint Aquarius WF220 Front Load Washer dirty rubber drum seal


its a matter of removing the front retaining wire and the inner one which holds it onto the drum, an easy enough job to get off, sometimes a pain to get the inner off and on depending whether it s the screw or clamp type , screw=easy. to get the clamp off use a screwdriver to wiggle the bent wire out of the ratchet grooves. to put back is done with long nose pliers, preferably bent nose ones.
