How to clean the rubber seal on my AEG washing machine

Last updated 17/07/2020 13:02

Issue

  • Dirt and Grime building up in the rubber seal of the washing machine

Applies to

  • Washing machines

Resolution

  1. Run a 90°C wash cycle once a month or more frequently if your washing machine has very regular use.
  2. Use a sodium carbonate product on the drum and in to door seal 

WARNING: Sodium carbonate irritates the skin, please wear gloves and take extra care

We recommend regular maintenance cleaning using a dedicated washing machine cleaner to prevent build up. Please visit our webshop for more information. 

If cleaning does not remove the mould build up in the door seal, new replacements are available also in our webshop

Cause

  • Washing at low temperatures, 40°C or less, can create a build up of enzyme based detergents leaving mould in the door seal, pipes and drum. This could lead to greasy deposits and leave grey streaks on your laundry.
