I would like to chance my Zanussi's door seal. There is a kind of mould area I was not able to clean it. Well if you give me an idea how I can clean it there is nothing wron with the seal apart from the mould.

If you want the door seal replaced any local domestic engineer will be able to do this. The mould is caused by excess detergent, constant washing at low temperatures, keeping the door closed when the machine is not in use. If you want to stop the mould reappearing once the seal has been replaced you need to carry out regular service washes (boil wash with a descaler/sanitiser). Use the correct amount of detergent for the amount of washing to be done and the hardness of the water in your area. Give the door seal a quick wipe after you use it and try and keep the door slighlty ajar when not in use.
hi, has the seal been replaced?if not use an old tooth brush and clean it with tooth paste it will clean off the mould, if the seal has been replaced check around the rim for a drain holle it may have been fitted wrong, some dont have drain holes hope this helps
IF YOU REMOVE THE SEAL UNLESS YOU ARE AN ENGINEER YOU WILL FIND IT EXTREMELY DIFFICULT TO REFIT IT, TO CLEAN OUT THE SLUDGE USE A PLASTIC SCOURING PAD LIKE THE ONES USED FOR CLEANING DISHES. IFTHE SEAL IS BLACK THIS CANNOT BE CLEANED IT IS A CHEMICAL REACTION TO DETERGENTS ETC BUT IS NOT HARMFUL TO ITEMS BEING WASHED HOPE THIS WILL HELP.
I had this problem, and it seems to be because the machine doesn't have the chance to dry out, so mould collects in the door. When the washing machine isn't being used, I simply leave the door slightly open - the washing machine dries and the black mould issue just about eliminated.
