Try using www.affresh.com, in the wash using hot water. If your unit has a tub clean cycle use it. Leave the door open after using the unit to allow it to breath and wipe down the gasket. Use HE detergent and you don't have to use too much. That goes for the fabric softener as well.

SOURCE: My front loading LG washing
Once the dingy look gets into them, it seems to be impossible to get out. It is caused by using too much soap and / or fabric softener. Remember, your front load LG is using only about 12 gallons of water to wash those towels. Your old machine used as much as 45. This means that all wash loads need to use less soaps and fabric softeners. Use 1 tablespoon of regular HE detergent for standard loads. (only a teaspoon if it is 3X HE) Only a teaspoon of fabric softener when you use it. Which brings me to towels. If washing bathtowels: You are clean and rinsed before you use the towel. The towel is not getting dirty, only soaking up the clean water off your body. Hang them on a towel rack and use them several times before washing, and when you do wash bath towels, most of the time you do not need any detergent, as they are really not dirty. Of course you should know that you never use fabric softener on loads of towels. Now, back to the dingyness. The dingy stuff is residual soap / fabric softener in the fabric, which once machine dried seems to be impossible to remove. If they are white towels, make sure to use liquid bleach and you might try to use a little Mrs. Stewart's concentrated liquid blueing in the fabric softener dispenser to see if if might help. Most likely you will have to try a few new towels, washing with no soap or fabric softener when laundered.
Please don't rate this, as it is really just informational, not what most people would call a solution, and any rating other than FixYa drops my score.
Note: If you wash some previously washed towel, using no soap, you should not see any soap suds in the washer. If you do, you are seeing soap left over from the previous washing of the towels or soap from build up on the outer washer tub. Use Whirlaway or AhFresh on tub clean cycle or at least the longest hottest cycle you have, and start using the correct amount of laundry additives. (also will help prevent odor issues)

If this has a paddle,check it for a sharp edge,also make sure it is not loose, the top cap should be able to be pulled off to see the locking
bolt,and you can check to see if it has loosened.
Feel everywhere on the inside of the washer for a edge that might be catching your cloths. You can also try the gentle cycle and see if it does not rip them.
You did not post the model# ,so I have no clue what style it is.

Check that the "transit bolts" are not holding the tub to the body. They are there to stop the bowl from bouncing around during transport.. Located at rear.... To check, see if you can feel easy movement between bowl and cabinet..If the bowl movement is restricted, unscrew the 'bolts'...Good luck....Nomess
