Question about LG WM-1832C Front Load Washer
My partner splashed diesel on his clothes, tried washing them about 5 times in washing machine, now top loader smells of diesel, have tried running hot wash with vinegar through, to no avail. Any tips
Try using a cup the the same soap you would put in your dishwasher and run is with the hottest wash setting possible

Never had that problem but here's what I would do:
1. Get rid of as much of the diesel residue as possible by draining every bit of liquid at the lowest point which may be the drain pump and hoses.
2. Since I'm handy, I'd remove all hoses and lightly sniff them for the odor. If its present use a serious solvent like air intake cleaner or acetone with every appropriate caution to my health and safety. Of course acetone will eat up certain plastics and both will remove paint but they are commonly available degreasers.
3. Put it back together and try it out.
Diesel is a toughy.
