Question about LG TROMM WM2688H 4.0 cu.ft. Front Loading SteamWasher
Try this, It's involved but it worked on my Kenmore HE4tDrain the machinePull the filter (have a sheet pan, wet vac and towels handy, there's a lot of water)Disconnect the drain boot from the pump and tubDisconnect the pump drain hose (waste)Disconnect the pump electricalWash everything (not pump motor) in a 25% bleach solutionReassemble.Put 1 gal boiling water, 1 gal hot water and 1/2 cup bleach in washer compartment. check for leaksWash entire compartment with the bleach water and spin the drum time to time for 15 minutesAdd TechnoFresh (which claims to loosen gunk) to the powdered soap dispenser, through a bunch of rag towels in and run the machine on the hottest cycle.This process works well until machine is stinky again (about 6 months depending on bleach usage)BTW "the leave door open trick" only helps the door gasket and does not address the constant reservoir of fermenting water in the bottom of the machine

SOURCE: washer smells bad
A colleague had trouble with clothes smelling bad after washing them. Turned out it was due to using a low temperature wash all the time which allowed the build up of some nasty bacteria inside the machine. The manufacturer recommended he used a high temperature wash about once a week to keep it clear and it's been fine ever since. Just a high temperature (non-economy)wash, no need to add bleach.

I had the same problem and it was a bad sensor assembly (#6501KW2002A). You can order
it from an online electronics store (www.mcminone.com). Cost is approx. $20.
I fixed it based on a thread from 2007:
But, here's what I did:
1. Unplug the machine.
2. Take off the back plate that has 4 small screws.
3. Unscrew the big bolt in the middle.
4. Take off the hubcap looking part the bolt was securing.
5. Unclip the two sets of wires on the bottom of the circle you are looking at
(the set of wires to the right are connected to the sensor assembly you want to replace).
6. Unscrew the 6 smaller bolts to take off the circular piece that the sensor assembly is snapped to.
7. Mark with a pen where the sensor attaches so you know where to snap the new one.
8. Unclip the old sensor assembly and clip on the new one
