There is a bad mould build up on the inside seal of my Miele Novotronic W828, Can you help, the smell is terrible, flows through the house.

You need to wipe the seal down with vinegar. Mold needs water to grow. Have you looked at the bottom of the dishwasher after a cycle to see if you have standing water? While you are looking clean the filter.

Hello, our miele w5040 is about 6 years old and we

if you mostly use lower temperature washes a bacterial mould builds up inside the machine. it can be seen as a black residue in the soap dispenser drawer and in the folds of the rubber door seal. a grey sludge also builds up on the inside of the wash drum and the drain filter. doing at least one hot wash ( above 60 C ) a week can stop this happening.

There is a really bad smell in my washing machine. i think it might be the rubber seal.

If burned rubber or insulation you can tell. Burning smell
Just bad odour can be from clogged filter, clean it periodically.

When not regularly cleaned and use on 30 -40 degree celsius, fungus becomes a problem. You can try cleaning the soap box and compartment with ttootbrush (old). And run the machine hot empty. When over the years fungus got everywhere, you need to disaassemble all or buy a new one. Don't try aggresive cleaners.

Also you might have a problem to the waterlock to your sewer. Check hose.
