Question about LG WM2688HWM TROMM SteamWasher
I bought the LG washer and dryer 3 years ago and for 2 1/2 years I've been going crazy! (We have 3 boys and do tons of laundry!) Even if our clothes don't have a strong mildew smell, our towels do, which we use to dry ourselves, so our "just showered" skin smells like mildew! It makes me feel sick and I have resorted to drying myself with paper towels, I swear! To add insult to injury, we lived in a rental for a year while we did our home renovation, and the washer and dryer were some crappy brand about 10 years old and we didn't have ONE problem getting our clothes clean and smelling fresh!

I could have bought 3 Kenmore washers and 3 Kenmore dryers for the price I paid for the LG!
