Clothes esp sheets and towels ball up in my new LG Tromm washer

I just splurged on new LG Tromm washer and dryer and I'm having a problem with both which I didn't ahve with my old front loader Frigidaire washer and dryer. The clothes ball up inside very tightly in both washer and dryer, and I have to stop the dryer to straighten them out several times during the cycle. The price I paid for these monsters makes me really #($)*(#-off when I have this problem whcih I didn't have with my old trusty ones! Dryer balls (2 of them) don't seem to help. Any thoughts?

SOURCE: Spin Cycle doesn't work on our GE Energy Star frontloader, please help

You may have to remove the lower panel and clean the drain pump filter. Easy job, once the panel is removed the filter will be right in front. Get a bucket and unscrew the filter cover (3 very small screws at the bottom of the front panel) and you should find a ton of lint and stuff in there. This model has a pressure switch that detects if there is water in the tub. If so it will do this pause and slow spin. Once the pump filter is clean you should be good again. It worked for me.

SOURCE: clothes and sheets come out wrinkled and twisted

Try not to wash large items with small items the large items like sheet will twist around the small item. causeing twisting and wrinkling. Also If you are overloading the clothes or underloading the clothes they will come out wrinkled. I would try to do some testing wash a load of only towels then wash a load of only t-shirts and other light weight items that you may have. Then do just a load of your jeans. What happens? Please let me know

SOURCE: samsung dryer makes loud noise; just started

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

'purchased approx. 2 yrs ago. always had trouble'?

Even whilst under guarantee/warantee?

I need to explain our situation.The washing machine forum is just made up of ordinary guys and gals, probably at home and from all over the world, with experience of addressing mostly mechanical and electrical/electronic problems and giving guidance on these for free on the web. In addition the members are not 'affiliated' to, or representative of, any manufacturer of washing machines or detergents whatsoever so we have to be carefull what we say;-0)


Sorry but all I can suggest is that you call your local Samsung service agent to see if it can cure your problems. You do not want to go to the expense of purchasing a different washer!

If this has clarified the situation for you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.
Thanks and good luck!
John C.

LG Tromm Washing Machine no power unless I unplug it and reset it.


See if you can lift the top of the washer by unscrewing it from the back and you should find a code and test sheet in there. Very easy to follow and run the test.

I have exactly the same problem!


Try using the tub clean cycle and use a good dose of bleach or vinegear. Here is how to run the tub clean cycle.

To start the TUB CLEAN cycle:
1. Remove any clothing or items from the washer and close the door.
2. Open the dispenser drawer and add liquid chlorine bleach to the bleach compartment.
NOTE: Do not add any detergent to the detergent compartments. Excessive suds may be produced and leak
from the washer.
3. Close the dispenser drawer slowly.
4. Power On and then press the Extra Rinse button for 3 seconds. (Prewash option will be selected.)
5. Press the Start/Pause button to start.
6. After the cycle is complete, leave the door open to dry around the washer door opening, door seal and
door glass.

LG Tromm Washer


Wash empry with detergent and double bleach with extra hot water. When cycle is complete open the door to the washer and let airdry. When you close the door with it wet it becomes a breeding ground for bacteria. You may also not be using the correct detergent or the correct amount of detergent.

Towels smell burnt after washing.


Are you sure the burnt smell is coming from the washer and not from the dryer? If you've placed a rubber backed rug or other similar article of clothing, it is not uncommon for that rubber backing to melt and get embedded in the heated duct of the dryer . Not sure this helps but if you can clarify the point at which the burnt smell is first observed that would help..
Thanks
