I took mine to the laundromat and used their largest machine. It came out great. I dried it for an hour in their supersized dryer and then finished the job at home. It cost $7 (lots of quarters) vs. $30 for dry cleaning, which is not recommended for down because it strips the down of natural oils, I think. The label says do not dry clean on mine.

I wouldn't wash a down comforter personally. I think they might need to be dry cleaned only. I know that mine does. A friend of ours that was watching our house spilled something on ours and then washed it. It went all flat and bled some of the color from the trim. We ended up having to buy a new one. Also, depending on the size of the comforter you may not want to for safety reasons of your washer. I know the sales people say you can wash like 15 jeans and 20 towels but really you don't want to. It can end up putting too much weight on the bearings of the drum and that is a costly repair. Let me know if you have any other questions, I hope this was helpful for you. Also let me know if this helped you out. Good luck.

When i wash it smells like rooting eggs i tryed bleach and the tablets but smells up the hole house what wrong its a lg tromm wm-2487hwm steam washer


I had the same problem. You must take out your clothes immediately and leave the door open after every wash to let the inside of the washer completely dry. I believe I read to run a cycle of bleach water and wipe down the inside of the door and interior with bleach/water mixture. Then let it dry. You then can start washing your clothes again, but you must be diligent about leaving the door open to air out between washings.Hope this works for you. I almost sold my machines shortly after I bought them because my clothes were always smelly after washing. Leaving the door open has worked for us.

How do I wash a down comforter on the LG steam washer?


I have done it before using the hand wash cycle. I don't know if that is the way you are supposed to do it, but it seemed to be ok and didn't ruin my down comforter.

LG TROMM - awful smell while washer is running


Use the aafesh tablets as instructed, this will clear hoses that have developed some mold, also inspect drain at the wall, these get moldy and as machine runs, smell comes out of there as well.

Vibration during spin cycle


Unless your front loader is set firmly on concrete and leveled to perfection, the force of a heavy wash load spinning in excess of 1000rpm will create a bit of vibration and noise.A firm footing is your best defense against to much movement.
Also due to the earlier movements during the spin cycle, the shocks that are used to dampen the spin cycle might have been broken or damaged.
If the problem persists inspite of proper levelling, please do check for the shocks or might have them replaced them for good.

Steam cycle runs on every setting


The steam will only run on certain cycles. If you look at your dial you will see a pink line which indicates which one. Your unit does have a recirculatting pump, maybe you are confusing the two. One way to check is to run a delicate cycle. During the operation press the wash/rinse and soil level buttons together. Hold them, a display will pop up with readings in the second coloumn, and second row it will display the tempurature of the steam generator in ceilsus. This will confirm whether or not it is on.

How do you have your drain hooked up?
I have seen people stuff the pipe so far into the stand pipe that when it goes into drain it siphons the water back. The water doesn't go all the way into the unit, but enough that the water in the 'P' trap moves, gas can then come up from the sewer. Make sure your drain pipe is hooked up properly. It should also not be a sealed fit either.
