“If you use Domestos bleach and leave it to soak for a bit, then wipe it away with a cloth, then wash the cloth on the hottest wash, that should do it,” another individual commented.
“I had this problem, and once you’ve gotten rid of it, simply maintain cleaning it and always leave the door open after a wash.”
“Kitchen roll soaked in neat bleach, pack it and let it overnight, rinse machine once done,” said another Mrs Hinch fan.

“Lightly wring the seal and pack it in. It always works.”
“I used to use a white towel in my old machine, soaked in bleach and folded, so it laid along the seal,” one user recommended.
“I would then scrub around the seal with an old toothbrush, then wash the towel in the washing machine to clean it all up. It was a good idea to do this.”
“Put some kitchen roll in there and soak it in bleach and leave for a while, even overnight,” another individual suggested.
