Question about LG WD-1280FHD Front Load Washer
LG WD1280fhd,has been smelling mouldy lately,have tried most solutions.now seems water is not reaching temperature.dont know how long ago i last noticed temperature actually getting warm-just hadnt checked this till now.anyone know whats wrong?
Moldy smell is most certainly due to left over soap residue and body oils that accumulate between the outer and inner tubs. This happens when there is an oversudsing issue and the extra soap does not breakdown properly. Be sure to use an HE (high efficiency) detergent and do not use too much. 2-3 tablespoons is all that is required. To clean the problem you now have you can use Whirlout (available at Home Depot by the hot tubs). Just use one capful in and empty load with hot water cycle. Repeat once a month to keep your unit fresh and clean. Note, even when selecting a cold cycle the unit will add hot water if needed to make the water at least 78 degrees F. This is to allow the HE soap to break down properly. A problem with your hot water (or the heater) could also cause the soap to not break down and operate efficeintly.

The smell usually comes
when the washer is unable to drain water completely, you can run your washer at
its hottest temperature setting with 1 cup of vinegar inside the unit. After
this take off the bottom front panel and clean it completely, also clean the
drain hose and drain pump filter, the smell should disappear after doing all
this. Hope this helps...please post back for further assistance.
