If your problem was my problem, the problem is bacteria or mildew. The fix is use a tablespoon of bleach in every wash with or without OxiClean. Using the bleach in the load of wash also cures the smell in the dryer. I also have bad allergies.

Same issue here with TROMM Super Capacity. Tried everything. We're giving up and selling the washer and dryer and going back to a top load set.

Im constantly blowing my nose and my nose is always running. When I blow my nose a thick clear mucus comes out. And it's usually a lot. It's always clear and thick. Please help. Thank you.


it would appear that you have an allergy or a sinus infection

In cases like this you should be talking to a medical professional ( doctor) to get proper tratment and assistance

I would not suggest help from a chemist /pharmacists/ drug store person as it could be serious.

When laying down too sleep, ears will sometimes click and sinuses drain in the morning


Well this isn't a cell phone question, but I have a solution anyway.
Short answer is that you have allergies. The clicking you hear is from your eustation tubes. They allow the pressure in the middle ear, behind the ear drum to equalize with atmospheric pressure and prevent damage to the ear drum. They also drain mucus from the middle ear. Allergies and sinus infections can cause the tissue and glands around or near the tubes to become inflamed and put pressure on, or block the tubes. The clicking you are hearing is the tubes opening and letting mucus drain. You can reduce the pressure being put on them by taking Ibuprofen. Pseudoephedrine also helps, but will keep you up at night. You can reduce your allergies, and thus the inflammation effecting the tubes with an antihistamine. Claritin, Zyrtec,or Allegra are antihistamines that should not cause drowsiness. All can be purchased over the counter, and have generics. You can also take Benadryl (Diphenhydramine), but it WILL cause drowsiness. You might also talk to your doctor about nasal sprays for allergies. Another method of treating allergies is a sinus wash with a Neti pot. It is a great alternative to medications or used in conjunction with them. There are several options available under the NeilMed brand.

I have pretty bad seasonal allergies and fly for a living (they don't go together very well). I use one or more of the above non-drowsy antihistamines and a steroid nasal spray to treat cause of the allergies. I also take Ibuprofen 200mg-800mg, and Pseudoephedrine 30mg-60mg to treat the symptoms, like head ache, head pressure, and congestion. Along with occasional use of a sinus wash. This is what works for me, though you should consult with your doctor before taking any new medications that might interact with any current medications or health issues.

What causes sinus headaches?


Sinus headaches can be indicative of a sinus infection. colds, infections or problems with the nasal cavity can lead to an infection and a build up of pressure around the sinus area. This causes bad sinus headaches.

My son is 7 years old and he has be continueously having mucus running through his nose. Sometimes he sort of cracks his throat as if he had sometime in there too remove. We have seen some Drs. already...


Sounds like he has allergies. What could he be allergic to? Do you have pets that are in doors? You can take him to an ear nose & throat doctor and have them test him for allergies. They usually take a marker and label each spot, then ***** the skin on his back with up to 100 different substances. They wait a few days and have you bring him back to see what breaks out and where. Then they create a serum that he takes in injections to make him immune to whatever is bothering him and it goes away. The ****** on his back do not hurt. I have had it done to myself.

Allergies are non bacterial. If the doctors are giving him antibiotics and the medication is making it go away for a bit and then it returns again in two to three weeks then he may have an inner ear infection or a sinus infection. Inner ear infections take up to six weeks of antibiotics to clear up the problem. Sinus infections take up to a month. If you stop taking the medication before its cleared up all the way, then it just keeps coming back again.

If I knew what the medications were that they gave him then I could help you further.

He could have a problem with adnoids. If this is the case then he would be swallowing and "snorting" all the time. What I mean by snorting is attempting to clear his throat loudly. He may need his tonsils removed or possibly his adnoids?

I feel my eyes are swelling and am dehydrated after using the NeilMed rinse. Is this possible. I also am using advair for allergies. Help!


I've also used Neilmed Sinus Rinse Packets but never had that problem. If you're eyes are itchy or swelling I would recommend using Zatidor eye drop for itchy eyes. I use them on a regular basis especially when I have a problem with itchy eyes. Also, I use Zyrtec for my allergies daily. Hope this helps

Do not buy an LG Tromm front loader unless you want stinky, moldy clothes! The first few months, I LOVED this washer, but now I think the machine is possessed by smell demons! I've tried everything, but...


Stinky clothes are usually the result of washing in cold water. Cold water will NOT kill bacteria.
Add one cup of vinegar to the wash before you start the machine - try it.
The vinegar will kill the bacteria during the wash. Your wash will NOT smell of vinegar.
The dryer level of dryness on most auto dryers needs to be set three clicks toward + on most machines. LG is no different.

My washer a Tromm LG DLE377W leaves a bad smell in clothes after washed the smell is in the washer also smells sour


Sears has tablets for front load washers that work great. I use one every month and it has helped the stinky washer smell and the bad smell in the clean clothes. It is called Affresh and it works better than any of the cleaners you can buy in the grocery stores.
