At the very bad of the machine take out the phillips head screws which pass through an L shaped part (which is attached to the top) into the back of the washer. (the L part should stay with the top) Slide the top back about two inches and lift off. Remove dispenser drawer by pushing down on the center tab at the back of the dispenser drawer, then remove one screw behind dispenser drawer front and one screw at each upper corner of control from back side of control. Panel is still held by tabs across top. Be careful, as there are sharp areas here. Detach all electrical plugs from control, and it should be loose in your hands now.

My LG front loading washer smells like wet clothes that have been in the washer for months? Musty smell?washer overnight? Strong smell of musty old clothes


This is caused by the biomass built up inside the tub of the machine. This can also be caused by a moldy door boot. You need to scrub your door boot between the tub and the door. Water settles in the bottom of it and molds. Once you clean this, order affresh washer cleaner for your machine. This kills all the biomass built up in the tub and removes the smell. You will put all three tablets in the drum and run on the longest hottest wash available. When this is completed your machine should smell much better. To keep this from getting so bad again... Keep the washer door cracked open between cycles. This keeps the inside from smelling. Hope this helps

My clothes stink so bad from my front end LG washer! My co-worker on my first week of work started buying bath and body sprays and body wash leaving it on my desk. I'm so pissed off because my washer was...


My LG stunk too. I did the tub washing with 1 cup bleach and wiping the rim, leaving everything open, nothing worked. I added 2 cups of a 6% bleach and used the tub cleaning cycle, rinsed with an empty hot water cycle then added bleach-able clothes to the 2nd hot water rinse (the third cycle/step). It gets a very strong bleach smell so don't take a whiff if you open the door in the first 2 cycles! After I did the strong bleach cycle, I am able to treat with just the 1 cup bleach about every 3 or 4 weeks and I make sure to wash with a hot water wash every week and a half at the least. This seems to keep my clothes smelling fresh like they should. Before I bought the LG, I read where people turned up the amount of water the washer takes in but I can't find the link that said how to do that. I think it was 1/4 turn on a screw on the top of the machine (when you take the cover off) but I can't guarantee how to do that.

Burning smell


There's a number of reasons to smell burning after a washing machine cycle. It's a 220V appliance, so if it short's out it will cause problems. It's more likely the motor being overloaded making it hot and causing the electrical burning smell, or a short that's overheating something electrical. Check to see if the belt that spins the whole barrel is melted or worn anywhere. Inspect the wiring that's attached to the system that engages spin, which is different from agitation by the big tower.
If these both check out, an trip to the Maytag Man might have to fix overloading motors or relays, or switches, if anything turns up in your search for the source of the electrical smoke. Ozone is what you are smelling, FYI.

Electrical Burning smell when agitating, trips breaker.


Send your complete model number, just to make sure we are working on same washer.
First check the lid latch switch by unplugging washer first and remove the font panel. Look up to where the switch is mounted. I am not positive that is your [problem but know there has been many problem with that switch. It will begin to melt ad cause the power to motor to be lost in a bad connection.
