Residue builds up no matter what the manufactures claim.

Once in a while, remove the detergent drawer. Pull it out gently until it stops. then push down on the black tab at the washing machine end of the drawer and while pushing down, pull the drawer totally out. Take it to the sink and wash it out with an old toothbrush.

Why is water sitting in soap dispenser pullout drawer?


Water remaining in soap dispenser. In front loading washers made by LG (some Kenmore too), water may remain filled in the soap dispenser after the wash cycle. This may be caused by the siphon tube being contaminated by detergent residue. To clear it, remove the siphon cover from the tube, and clean them thoroughly, making sure that all residue is removed. Replace the cover and make sure it seats properly all the way down. This will ensure that the siphon starts and continues until the dispenser tray is emptied. A small amount of water, a half inch or less, remaining is normal. There is a video on YouTube that suggests buying a new detergent tray. Try cleaning it first. There are no parts that will break or wear out under normal use.

Musty smell


The "MAX" line indicates how much liquid must be in the blue dispenser cup before it DISPENSES from the bottom of the cup.
This is a very, very frustrating mistake that gives owners much grief.
After three months of incorrect type of detergent or incorrect amount of the correct detergent used--musty odor begins to occur.

After more than two years--a significant amount of soap ****/curd has accumulated in the washer. Odor-causing bacteria flourishes on this build-up.
It is imperative to remove this slimy residue. Tide sells a product called
"TIDE WASHING MACHINE CLEANER" which is very effective.

I HAVE FRONT LOAD LG WASHER - CLOTHES ARE SMELLING -- CAN WE USE 2 CUPS CLR & RUN WASHER WITH NO CLOTHES TO CLEAN WASHER DRUM & DRAIN HOSES. IS THERE A BETTER SOLUTION TO PREVENT THIS PROBLEM


Here is a response I recently gave to a person posting a similar problem. You do not state your model number, so: If you have a tub clean cycle, use that, if not, use the longest, hottest cycle with no clothes and a front load washer cleaner like Ahfresh, Washer Cleaner, SmellyWasher Cleaner, Tide front load washer cleaner, or Whilaway hot tub cleaner. Clean the tub gasket area by the door and remove the filter and clean it out also before you run the clean cycle. You may have to run the cycle with a cleaner twice to remove all the built up soap scum inside the washer. Now, after the washer is clean, USE ONLY ONE TO A MAXIMUM OF TWO TABLESPOONS OF HE LAUNDRY DETERGENT PER CYCLE !!!! (and no more than one teaspoon of fabric softener per cycle, if you use it)


Comments: Jul 21, 2009- Well, with that model I'd guess you are in the UK, and I don't have parts breakdown or service info on those models, but I'd run the front load washer cleaner through it. Not sure which ones are available over there. You could check out http://www.smellywasher.com/ for one possiblity. The big thing is that these machines use very little water, and many of the newer soaps are 2x or 3x concentrated, so you have to use very little soap. (much much less than the soap manufacturers suggest) in order to rinse all the soap residue out of the clothes and prevent it from builing up in your washer and causing odors. (oh, by the way, that one cleaner I listed as Washer Cleaner is actually " Washer Magic ") 73b1c2a.jpg fb3071a.jpg

Slimmy scum left in bottom of washing machine after use


I posted this for someone with a similar complaint:

You can try a product called Affresh it's supposed to work quite well to maintian a clean washer. If you already have a smelly washer you should run a few cycles using Affresh. You also want to make sure you're using HE soap (it will have an HE oval shaped logo on the detergent bottle). If you're not soap residue will build up in the machine and start to smell.

Dishwasher soap remains in the soap dispenser following the complete cycle. I have had the washer for a year and a half. The first year, no soap remained in the dispenser. Now about 1/8th of the soap...


Try cleaning the soap dispenser with white vinegar so that it is free of all detergent, then try using about 1/4 less detergent than you have been to see if you still have any remaining in the dispenser. Also, make sure your drain filter is free of all sediment so that the system can pump the water out freely. Lastly, if you are still getting some soap remains, then try using a sanitary setting that uses the hottest water and see if the excess soap is properly dispensed. Your water temp may not be getting hot enough so this test should help identofy the solution. Hope this helps !
