Question about LG WM2688HWM TROMM SteamWasher
HERE THE LINK TO LAW FIRM
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 (email@example.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.

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.

first try to clean it with clorox bleach. or some bathroom mold cleaner scrubing bubbles, ect
and if it still needs to be changed look on the computer and find the part shipped to you.

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!
