Whirlpool - Duet Front-Loading Washer door seal poor design
Duet sport Front-Loading Automatic Washer - Complaint
The gray rubber door seal on the Duet Sport front loading washer is a terrible design. It traps water in it and around the edge which then causes mold and slime to form. Whirlpool's suggestion is to use bleach which I refuse to use) and to dry it out with a towel after every use. I have never had a washing machine which has been so labor intensive. I eventually had to order a new seal because it is so disgusting but the new seal does not match the old one and now causes rubbing on the tub.
Whirlpool does not see this as a defect in the design and I will not be purchasing another washing machine from them.
I also am disappointed in the lack of selections for the wash cycles. No matter what I do, my clothes never seem to smell clean anymore. I am ready to go back to the old top filling machines.
