This seems to be a major problem with the Duet front loading washer. It looks like a design flaw in the pump that doesn't empty properly. There are some useful tips from contributors on how to solve the problem.

  • Order> AP4320043 (TJ120) Affresh washer cleaner for front load 1 @ $6.49 This contains 2 big tablets & used once a month as directed it clears the old water/ mold order out.
  • Periodically wipe down the seals with Simple Green or vinegar. Replace the moldy gasket around the tub and door.

You can get parts & directions to do this at Appliance pros.. I found them by accident about a year ago & have used them 3 times to repair my washer & once to replace a part on my dryer.
