Default Frigidaire Front Load Washer Mold Problem
Model Number: ATF6700FS2   Brand: Frigidaire   Age: 5 - 10 years   

Appliance Parts from AppliancePartPros.com


Hi, this washer has an accumulation of mold that seems to be ingrained in the bellows between the door and drum that seems to be un-treatable. Cleaners don't seem to touch it and diligence in keeping it dry is futile. I understand that this can be a common problem with front loaders so somebody must have successfully dealt with this issue. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks
Larry

This is a huge problem with front loaders, and is almost unsolvable. The problem is water gets into the bellows and even with a drain arrangement the bellows seldom get dry enough to prevent mold. Mold is one of the major reasons why I recommend against a front loader unless you absolutely have to have it.

I would try Clorox Foam Cleaner with bleach to get it out. Then check to see if there is a drain arrangement and if it is clogged. Finally, after each wash you may need to take a towel and dry out the gasket.
