Question about LG WM-1832C Front Load Washer
When water drains there's a distinct rotten egg smell. The washer is only 3 years old.
Repair man told me this is common with front load washers. I was told to put Sunlight dish washing detergent (for dishwashers not hands) in the machine (about 1/2 cup) and do a hot wash with the machine empty.

Front load washers dont completely drain, and so you're left with little bits of water for mildew (egg smell) to grow in. You can either: 1) leave the washer door ajar. 2) run your last load (whites) with bleach

Let me guess, you smell it when you use hot water to wash? sounds like it is more of a hot water heater problem with the rotten egg smell you mention. This happens when the "sacrifical rod" in your hot water heater needs replacing. Inside every water heater is a long magnesium bar called an anode rod. The sacrificial metal protects the tank from rust by corroding first. Once the bar disintegrates, however, the tank begins to corrode. You can at least double the life of your heater by replacing the rod before it dissolves completely ? every four years or so, depending on your water quality. Hope this helps. Joe
