Mix 1/4 cup of liquid chlorine bleach into approximately 5 cups of hot water.
Dip a clean rag into the bleach and water mixture while wearing rubber gloves and eye protection. This will protect your eyes and skin from the bleach which could cause irritation, according to California State Polytechnic University.
Wring out the rag so that it is damp but not soaking wet.
Wipe the rubber gasket with the damp rag. Pull back the edge of the gasket gently as you work to ensure that you clean underneath the exposed edge and clean any creases in the gasket carefully as dirt may accumulate in these places.
Dry the rubber gasket with a clean towel and leave the door of the LG washer open to help dry the gasket completely.
