last i heard, the law firm of Andrus Liberty & Anderson LLP was gathering info & looking for folks that not only bought this horrible kenmore appliance, but also experienced the issues we are all seeing. Laurie Jacobsen (laurie@libertylaw.com) was the person who contacted me back in Oct 2008 via email. i have not heard from her since, but might not be a bad idea to try again. phone # is 415-896-1000.

SOURCE: rubber gasket removal LG Tromm front loader

We found there is three small holes on the seal right inside the door, check to see if they are clogged with soap scum and clean them out. Run a cycle of hot water and bleach. Then, after each use, leave the door open and let it air dry and this has seem to work.

Barb,

This is a problem with all front loaders. We have used those cleaning tablets in a regular hot cycle per the directions on the box. You can also try placing 1 cup of crystal dishwashing detergent in the tub and fill the soap dispenser with bleach and run a quick cycle full hot.

This can happen with any front loading washer, regardless of the manufacturer.

One of the first things to do is make sure you're using the He (High efficiency) laundry detergent and only use a small amount, about 3 tablespoons or less. The trick is to not use so much detergent that you start getting a buildup in your machine. Also, if you have heavily soiled clothes, pre-treat them instead of adding more detergent to your wash cycle. This alone will result in better results.

Also, be certain the washer is properly leveled in all directions and to make some slight changes in your wash day schedule.

By making sure the washer is properly leveled, it will operate better and help minimize odors, as the spin cycle will get more water out, etc.

The other tip, that has really helped in our house, is to do all the hot water (whites) as the last load. Since we do use bleach when we wash our whites, along with hot water, the washer's last load will have had the best sanitizing cycle run through it before being left for the next load another day.

With the bleach and hot water, the washer gets a nice clean disinfecting wash which helps eliminate odors, germs, excessive soap, etc. and leaves the washer fresher. By doing this, we don't have to purchase other (more costs and expense) additives to run through the washer to attack the odor causing germs and gunk.

What good is a more energy efficient washer if I have to always run a special tablet/liquid cleaner in it each week without any laundry in that wash load? Seems wasteful to me to be doing an "extra" wash just to wash the washer. So I'm not a proponent of having to always use another product every week or month to have a washer work like it should.

However, if you've got an existing (smelly/moldy) washer presently, I would recommend that you use a produce called Whirl-Out, which will help dissolve the buildup that your machine currently has and get it clean again. Then you can follow the steps above to keep it from causing you issues in the future.

I hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

Washer overfills on initial filling.Does not run over on rinse


I would say its a water level switch issue.

Here is a new one for your model, in case you need to order it:

Can I get an on line manual for model # WM-2233HW LG front load washer


Yes, LG has the user's manual for the WM-2233HW on the product site. Click on the Support tab here: http://www.lg.com/us/appliances/washers/LG-WM2233HW.jsp . The link to the manual is on the right side of the page. The manual is in a pdf so you will need Adobe Reader or a similar program to read the file. The direct link appears to be http://www.lg.com/common/product/support.jsp?localeCd=US&productId=WM2233HW&uri=/us/appliances/washers/LG-WM2233HW.jsp&categoryIdCms=2# . If this link doesn't work, please start at the first link I provided.

I hope this helps.

F1 warning light keep coming on at the start of the washing cycl


Aside from replacing the brain with another one identical to the one that died, which will most likely die again, you can do what the people mentioned below are doing.

Quoted from another site:

If you own a Kenmore Oasis (built by Whirlpool) or Whirlpool Cabrio washer, and you are getting the "F1" error code...or similar codes, and nothing you do fixes the problem, here is what you should do.
Join the class action lawsuit, and sign the petition.
Here is the class action law suit info. Remember, these Kenmore Washers (built by Whirlpool) are basically the same machine as the Whirlpool Cabrio:

"Thank you for your interest in pursuing a lawsuit against Sears relating to the Kenmore HE4t and HE3t Washing Machines. This lawsuit is currently being handled by the law firm of Seeger Weiss, LLP. Sheller, P.C. is co-counsel on the case. Your inquiry submission will be forwarded to Seeger Weiss, and you will be contacted by a Seeger Weiss representative shortly."

"Once again, thank-you for your interest. Any questions may be directed to Jonathan Shub at jshub@seegerweiss.com."

Another frustrated Cabrio owner started a petition to be sent to the CEO of Whirlpool Corp., Jeff Fettit. Follow the link, and please sign it! The more the better! Spread the word!
