Lg Tromm Steam Washer

I am having the same problem with my washer in regards to smell. The door has been leaking since I purchased the machine. I have had 5-6 different repair men out here. They have told me the same thing everybody else is saying their repair men told them. I would like to know if their is a class action lawsuit against LG also.

When i wash it smells like rooting eggs i tryed bleach and the tablets but smells up the hole house what wrong its a lg tromm wm-2487hwm steam washer


I had the same problem. You must take out your clothes immediately and leave the door open after every wash to let the inside of the washer completely dry. I believe I read to run a cycle of bleach water and wipe down the inside of the door and interior with bleach/water mixture. Then let it dry. You then can start washing your clothes again, but you must be diligent about leaving the door open to air out between washings.Hope this works for you. I almost sold my machines shortly after I bought them because my clothes were always smelly after washing. Leaving the door open has worked for us.

I have LG ,Tromm washer machine front load have problem. Door is not closing completely .


The "dE" error code indicates that the LG Tromm washer's door has not been properly closed. Closing the door firmly usually clears this error. If the error does not go away once the doors closed, a service technician should be consulted.

I have an LG washer that smells like rotten clothes. My clothes come out smelling real bad. I checked inside and noticed that the rubber seal around the door is holding moldy rotton gunk. It's not self...


Run a cup each of baking soda and vineger thru a hot wash. Might have to do this a couple of time if smell really bad.

Take out the unit where the liquid soap, softner, etc goes and clean by hand.

Soak a cloth in vinegar and clean the inside of the rubber around the tub.

And finally DO NOT LEAVE THE DOOR CLOSED IF NOT IN USE.

Musty/Mildew smelling clothes...


lg has a known problem with smelly mildew cloths. If you call LG they will tell you its not there problem. Cheapest solution is to wash door gasket with some clorox and then betwen washes leave door open. On the washing supply shelves there is a product you put in the washing machine run a wash without cloths and it does the same thing except it costs $7.If you bought it a t Lowes go back and ***** to store manager my friend did exactly that and got the machinje replaced

LG Tromm Washer


Wash empry with detergent and double bleach with extra hot water. When cycle is complete open the door to the washer and let airdry. When you close the door with it wet it becomes a breeding ground for bacteria. You may also not be using the correct detergent or the correct amount of detergent.

LG TROMM - awful smell while washer is running


Use the aafesh tablets as instructed, this will clear hoses that have developed some mold, also inspect drain at the wall, these get moldy and as machine runs, smell comes out of there as well.

I used a maytag neptune @ work and it was a peice of JUNK! it has the mildue smell everyone is talking about. i was told of a remidy for this smelly issue. pour a good amount of casscade dishwasher POWDER not liquid into the washer drum and then pour bleach into the wash slot on the fron loader and then put the washer on the longest setting and let the machine run the cycle. i hope this works for you. i will try it once a month om my front laoder when its delivered. GOOD LUCK!!!!
