AUSSIE- Repair Tech. :

Run a pure hot wash and Epsom salts through the machine (no clothes) and let it run on the longest wash cycle... this will dissolve all alkaline deposits that have built up and started to turn yucky behind the drum on the outer tub. Try using less powder and less softener in your washing... The problem is related to front loaders not using much powder compared to the water intake (much less than normal) After a few years, the detergents build up and start to turn yucky as they it forms a film inside the outer tub..

AUSSIE- Repair Tech. :

Also, sometimes the magnesium plate on the rear of the drum starts to break down also,,, not a good sign* (impending bearing failure))

AUSSIE- Repair Tech. :

Another trick is to run a load of hot water once in a while to just keep the insides clean,, I use 1-2 liters on vinegar as opposed to Epsom salts,,, as I add vinegar to the washing because it is also a softener and anti static agent for fabrics.. not to mention it also dissolves Alkaline build ups from detergents*

AUSSIE- Repair Tech. :

This is about all you can really do without pulling it apart and cleaning it by hand ( very expensive in labor)

Customer:

Ok. Great. Thanks for the advice. I will try that today.
