Dump a cup of bleach in it and let it stand overnight or until the next load is started.

Lots of mold around rubber gasket; unable to clean off; odor from mold; water in detergent trays; maybe some water leaking from washer; washer bought in 2008


Use a s.o.s pad to remove mold there will still be staining but it will gey the bulk of.Now to get rid of the smell ( this has been a mixture I have used for about ten yers works every time) put the washer on hot heavy wash start when done filling drain what you want to do is make sure the water is the hottest it can be. now start washer again on hot wash when you see water in bottom of tub stop machine to open door ADD two cups of dish washing power( brand does not matter I tell most people to buy cheap stuff at walmart) start machine let it run till you see powder disolve then stop washer and add 1 cup bleach. let unit go through complete cycle..If your washer has a clean cycle use that instead of the heavy or normal cycle. The most I ever had to do this treatment was 2 cycles and it worked every time.Note all front load washers the door must be left open to pervent odor/bellows should be wiped clean after each use/and a good cleaning at least once a month. anyhow if this helped please vote if you need more help please ask

NOTE the dish soap is the stuff for a dish washer

There is a smell like rotten eggs in the washer.


If you have used a non HE detergent in your washer this smell will occur often. Even using HE detergents over a period of 1 year since new they can get this odor. There are products on the market like Affresh: http://www.affresh.com/#/home or Tide washing machine cleaner: http://www.tide.com/en-US/product/tide-washing-machine-cleaner.jspx?ms=true (select info)

What you can do is use a full cup of bleach and 1/4 cup powdered Dawn dish washing soap in your washer with some non greasy rags. Dump it straight into the tub (not via the dispenser) and run a HOT wash. You can also add a squeeze of lemon at the same time or lemon concentrate. If it has been a long time since a machine cleaning cycle you may have to do this 2 times. It is recommended you perform a machine cleaning cycle at least every 90 days.

Any feedback via a response here of your success or failure to get rid of the bad smell would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Smell in LG LDF8812ST


First, scrape your dishes clear of food before putting them in.  Rotten food makes smells.  Second, use a good brand of detergent in the recommended amount and use the heating cycle to heat the water up.  
Most dish washers have a dryer heat cycle but this one apparently does not.  This may cause mold in the machine.  
How to get rid of the smell:  With no dishes in the machine, add half a cup of bleach in the bottom of the unit and do a full wash cycle.  If the unit still has an odor, get some baking soda...about a half cup and put that in the bottom of the machine.  Close the door and leave overnight.  Then, run the machine through one wet cycle...say a wash cycle and then it should stop smelling.
Hint:  When leaving dishes in the machine between uses, leave the door ajar...do not close tightly.
