Why does my LG top load washer have mold in the detergent area?


This is a common issue, they make cleaning products to remove this gunk. Hot water and bleach will kill it as well.

3/4 full of salt, but no soft water, and water in the salt container


You didn't specify the type of softener, however if it's a Kenmore, GE, ECO Water or similar (usually under $500), the vortex/venturi, probably needs cleaning. (If you have iron in your water, you need to clean this about every 6-12 months, depending on how many ppm your water has).

But it's an simple & easy procedure. First remove the cover of the softener (usually held on by 2 clips in front, 2 in back).

Once the cover is off, on the left side of the valve you will see a conical-shaped plastic part. (Usually gray, but not always). You will need to unscrew this (it's ok if water is still on, it's not under any pressure unless it's recharging) and clean the screen inside.

Most likely the screen will be caked with iron oxide (rust). I use a rust dissolver (such as Iron Out or any product designed to dissolve rust, but this is strong stuff, wear gloves or wash you hands immediately afterwards) and let the screen soak in that for 1/2 hour. If needed, you can speed the process along by using an old toothbrush and clean the screen, then soak a little longer, brush again, etc.

Once clean, replace the screen (mind the O-ring) and cover (hand tight is sufficient). Start a manual regeneration and clean the resin bed.

-If you decide to remove the rest of the parts in the vortex/venturi, be very careful not to lose anything. A few of these parts are very small. There should be a diagram of how the parts go together in your owners manual and on the machine itself. Usually these will not need cleaning, but doesn't hurt to go ahead and make certain. As to the two rubber parts with holes in them, the one with the larger hole goes on the bottom, and on both, the rounded side goes up. Watch carefully when you disassemble and remember so you can reassemble in the correct order with done.

As you have water in the brine tank (salt tank) keep an eye on this to prevent a salt bridge from forming. This is more prevalent with rock salt than pellets, but can form with any salt.

(I would strongly recommend you never use "rock salt" in any softener. It's full of dirt and you will absolutely need to clean out the brine tank at least annually or the dirt will end up being drawn into the softener. I use a good quality of salt pellets with an "red out" to maintain the resin against iron. These are usually good up to 2 ppm iron, anything over this and you should use a 1/2 box of Iron Out or similar, every 6 months).

If you suspect a salt bridge has formed, try pouring hot water onto the salt at one spot. This will dissolve the salt in that spot and form a "hole" in the salt. (Hot water dissolves salt faster than cold).
Once you break through, use a broom handle to break the salt surrounding the hole and it will collapse into the bottom of the brine tank. Suspect a salt bridge is the machine runs properly, but no soft water.

My daughters water softener filled up with water and now is losing water and salt on the bottom of the thing.

She probably does NOT need to replace this unit. What you perceived as a leak may only be water backing up in the brine tank and leaking out of the overflow.

You need to use a clarifying shampoo to remove excess build up. You can also make your own. In a small seperate bottle, add a teaspoon of baking soda to every 2 ounces of shampoo. Small batches work best.

I own the Whirlpool duet set with the front loading washer. The clothes comeout with a bad smell. I was told that the washer probably needed to be cleaned. How is this done, and what makes it happen?


Using the wrong kind of detergent in your fancy front loader is a great way to grunge up your washer and impart some oder onto your clothes. And it accelerates the mechanical deterioration of your washer.
2. Using too much fabric softener and/or detergent.
Liquid fabric softener does not break down very well in cold water and the residue collects on the outer tub and basket along with the lint left from the wash. We professionals refer to this accumulated as grunge. Once formed, this grunge collects ever more additional soap, dirt, grease, human waste, mites, , parasites... and then some really bad stuff.
As it turns out, this grunge makes a perfect substrate for microbial life forms. Over some time- not very much time in warmer climates- those little bacterial colonies build up lots of microbial sewage, just like we do until one day you open the door to the washer
Using too much fabric softener will waterproof your clothes. How clean do you think your clothes will get if they repel water inside the washing machine?
3. Doing all your wash loads in cold water only.
Detergents don't dissolve as well in cold water. As a result, cold water washes leave behind more grunge. So... do an occasional wash in hot water. OK, maybe more than occasional. Like, I hope you at least wash your skivvies in hot water.
4. Leaving clothes in the washer at the end of the cycle.
Front loaders don't have as much access to open air as top load machines. Consequently, leaving clothes in the washer for more than eight hours will increase mold and mildew build up.
1. Add one additional gallon of hot water to the unit before sending it into a hot wash. This will raise the water level high enough to remove the Grunge Hiding Behind the Basket
2. Same as 1 but with bleach added to all dispensers. Clean the fabric softener cup with a rag first (bleach will not break up fabric softener since it is introduced in the rinse cycle with the fabric softener).
3. Same as1 and 2 but with a cap full of pine cleaner added to the wash water (NOT the dispenser). Add some old rags (they don`t need to be dirty) and select the extra rinse cycle. The wash action will help remove the accumulated grunge from the components
Once again, make sure you're only using high efficiency (HE) detergents in your front loader.

Fabric softener compartment does not empty


Try cleaning out the fabric softener holder with some type of citrus cleaner to dissolve the wax build up, or run a hot load without adding any fabric softener to an empty washer. Good luck!

Funky smell and a fim reamin on dishes after


You can clean your dishwasher with either a product called "Dishwasher Magic" or white vinegar. Both are basically food safe acids in low concentrations, and will dissolve the hard water scale that builds up in dishwashers. You also should make sure you use rinse agent "Jet Dry" all the time unless you have a water softener.

Leaves a film on dishes


This problem occurs due to excessive calcium build up inside the dishwasher. Try cleaning your dishwasher using a dishwasher cleaner. There are a few out there, Try Dishwasher Magic. This cleanser will dissolve the build up of calcium, thus, preventing the film from forming.

I always use cold or warm water temperatures. I now use Snuggle liquid fabric softener (and an assortment of other liquids in the past) in the agitator mounted dispenser. The softener (all of them) leave...


This is a common problem you will experience with just about any liquid fabric softener you use, Joyce. Liquid softener is essentially a wax. Over a period of time it will cause the gunked up mess in the dispenser you describe. I don't think you will find a liquid form of softener that won't do that. You can try switching to dryer sheets, but you will experience the same mess inside your dryer if the vent ducting is not kept clean. Of course, this only happens in the most extreme cases of dryer neglect. Your best option, in my opinion, would be to use what you have and periodically clean the dispenser. You can do this by simply removing it from the agitator and soaking it in the some hot tap water. The deposits will dissolve. If you have further questions, please let me know. I hope you find this information helpful.

Fabric softner build up in recepticle, and black mold forming


The build up is always going to be there as long as your using softener.The way to beat this is 1.add the softener directly into the tub before last rinse.2.Dillute it with water.3.Stop using softener and this cant ever occur./// The fabric softeners brand may make a difference,try another brand .If its watered down its less sticky.
