Yes, having similar issues were the soap or bleach won't go into the wash. This is a health issue.

We have the same problem! Very angry!!!

Yes - we have had the exact same problem with our GE Profile washer for years. Black slimy mold accumulates in visible areas such as around the rubber door gasket, and in the pull-out detergent drawer. We wipe it out with soap and water, and bleach regularly, but it returns. We assume it is everywhere in the system. We always leave the front door open, and dry portions of the rubber gasket after each wash. We mix our loads in hot, warm and cold modes. We never use fabric softener. The machine is properly balanced. Because of the mold issue, the incoming water to the washer runs through it, and creates a fowl smell. This is the water that is then used to "wash" the clothes. Unbelievable. (WG - Philadelphia)

We also have this problem and have had since the beginning. We always leave the door open as we found the water sat in the rubber where door closes. We would dry this sitting water with paper towels or rags if we were going away for few days or more. We tend to do wash daily. Always kept door open. Progressively mold has gotten worse. Mold throughout rubber now and in soap container and beyond. We have manually cleaned mold everywhere we can see and reach, but smell remains. Have run cycles with just bleach. See some other recommendations on site of what you might try to clean mold. It is a chronic problem once it hits. Never completely goes away. We are like many of you, will NEVER buy a GE product again. That is a lot of business GE loses from us as all our appliances are currently GE. We won't buy a front loader again either for the problems we have had.

Never a front loader again, never GE again. Life's too short.

I also have a GE front loader washer. The machine is about 2 years old and I have had this issue 6 months after purchasing it, but I didn't realize what it was until almost a year afterwards. I have tried to clean the front rubber boot with bleach time and time again, but the mold ALWAYS returns. I can tell I need a round of bleach to clean the boot after I wash a load and it smells like it's been sitting there for days when it's only been minutes after a wash. Very disappointed that GE hasn't been part of the solution. The front rubber boot is stained from all the mold. I clean it with bleach and it's only good for a month. Then I have to clean the boot again next month. Such a hassle. I can only imagine all of the mold in spots that I can't get to. I am seriously contemplating purchasing a top loading washer that doesn't carry the GE name.

I have the same issue with my front load washing machine it is about 10 years old and already had the seal changed, but same problem.

Bought our GE Profile washer in 2014 and has smelled since the beginning. Take it apart and clean it regularly and wash daily leaving all doors open between cycles. Nothing helps. Would love GE to post advise on how to solve the issue. Next washer will not be a GE.
