Customer: IWDC 6105

Customer: about 3 months
JA: Anything else we should know to help you best?
Customer: Well, I’ve checked the water inlet hose and also felt around the rubber seal at the front but can’t find anything.


Welcome to Justanswer … my name is ***** ***** I will help you today!

I’m sorry to hear you're having trouble with your appliance; hopefully, we can get this resolved quickly.

How about door seal? Have you tried to clean it ?

The bits of black which are left on the washing brush off by hand ........but shouldn’t be there in the first place

OK and does it happen, no matter what cycle you select ?

Customer: replied 7 months ago.
my wife only uses cycles 3 and 4

OK, can you run a empty wash cycle on its hottest setting.

You may use cup full of descaler instead of detergent.

After it is cleaned wipe out the drum and around the door seal with a clean dry cloth.

Then see if the problem still exists, if it does you will have to replace the door seal.

If you have any further questions, don't hesitate to ask!

Thanks - can I assume that as there was a notice to say that "answers by phone" was not available, I won't be charged the £16?

Yes that is correct.
