The Causes of Black Marks & Mildew or mould On Washing Machine Door Seal and how to stop this happening

The photograph that is shown in an extreme example is caused by a bacteriological build-up in your machine due to poor cleaning and damp environment over the days that the machine is not being used. It really is that simple and, all too often down to bad maintenance.

What happens is that new type of washing machines use less water to wash and are left for too long without performing a maintenance wash which will allow bacteria to build up in the washing machine which will grow very happily in the warm damp conditions which will eventually lead to what is shown here on the door seal or door rubber as some people call it.

Also using solely liquid detergents, liquid tablets, colour only powders (or liquid) as well as most of the “alternative”products like Soapnuts, Ecoballs NOT contain any bleach and will not remove any bacteria effectively. Should you wish to use these alternative products you will also have to add bleach to prevent “greying” of your whites over time as well as other problems.

Whipping the door seal after each wash will help no end leaving the machine door slightly ajar when not in use also massively helps; this allows the seal to dry out and hinders the growth of bacteria inside the washing machine’s drum as well as the door seal.

These are the models that this mouldy door seal gasket was replaced on

    Great stuff. Fitted the seal in about 40 minutes with a little help from
    my wife holding the spring, and did it without removing the front panel.

    Great video thank you. We replaced our drum and all fine but slight leak
    from seal as didn’t realise 2 retaining spring seals and front panel
    doesn’t come off on our machine. Have subscribed to you on YouTube but
    cannot find you on Facebook to like your page?

    Thanks so much! We changed the seal in about an hour and everyithing is
    working perfectly. I am a girl and must say – amazing stuff!

    Great video! My machine’s inner ring is not a spring though, it’s just a
    wire. I wonder how I’ll handle that part…

  14. Gary Boast says : Reply

    Thanks for this video, it’s incredibly helpful – I’ve just bought you a
    beer…. but, can you advise – after the first wash having replaced it,
    there appears to be a lot of dust from rubber where it has rubbed on the
    drum as it has span round, is this normal initially or an indication that I
    have fitted it wrong? It isn’t leaking or anything or making any unusual
    noises.

    Helped me replace a burst seal on a hotpoint wmxtf942p, not on your list
    but looks almost identical to the model on the video. Man was the spring
    hard to replace on own with just my fingers. Thanks
