We purchased a Tromm Model#WM2233HW S/N MOLD growing in the rubbe

We purchased a Tromm Model#WM2233HW S/N 704Kwcf03443 and have a MOLD problem. The robber gasget around the opening to the tub does not extract the water and mold is growing on the rubber and can be found on the glass. I have two small children and I am worried. Can this be fixed? This is a design problem why have I not been called to have this problem corrected?

Put 2 cups of bleach into the washing machine and run a cycle with HOT water (long cycle) Steam if possible. This should kill the mold...with a front loading machine you MUST use HE Detergent, and LEAVE THE DOOR OPEN AFTER THE LOAD IS DONE!!!!!!! the seal needs to dry, just like your shower curtain needs to dry. You should also wipe your seal with a dry towel after each load. It does state this in the owners manual, as well as the laminated sheet with the suction cup that came with the machine...

Our LG WM2233HW Tromm when not in use slowly fills up with water. For example if we do not use it for 24 hours there may be as much as 2 inches of water sitting in there.

The water inlet valve has failed. They tend to get debris inside and not seat properly. You will need to replace the water inlet valve. They are usually not to expensive and easy to replace. Here is a link that should help Water inlet valve replacement You can also get diagrams and illustrations of your specific model at the same site.

Hello- Well, you are not alone in your frustration and the only real solution, unfortunately, is to replace the gasket. As far as the internal parts I have rarely seen mold growing on those parts (in any front load washer), most of the the internal parts are hard plastic and stainless steel and these do not seem to allow the mold to grow even though they are wet a lot of the time. The internal hoses as well do not seem to have this problem. Though it gives little solace or immediate remedy I do think the manufacturers are going to have to come up with a rubber formulation that is not such a friendly environment for the mold. Considering the number of these gaskets, door boots, I have replaced over the years there must be some real issue with the engineering of this rubber or else they would have found a solution years ago. You could try contacting LG and asking them to replace it for free or at least send you the part for free. It usually takes a Tech about an hour to replace. Best regards.

LG tromm mold smell.


Try using bleach with hot water, run a cycle with hot water and bleach. Or spray bleach +water mixture on the seal. Run a cleaning cycle with hot water and bleach or vinegar at least once a month to reduce the growth of mold in other parts of the washer. You can also try using 1/2 a cup of Washing Soda or 4 cups of baking soda Crystals and run the machine with no clothes in it. This would remove all the debris, lint & mold growth from the drain pump and drain filter. This would clean the mold from the door seal as well. Please post back for further assistance. Hope this helps...

How do i get the mold out?

A lot of times liquid detergent and liquid fabric softener will cause this. Dry the door seal after use and leave the door open. Don' t use bleach if you're on a septic system. There are products that are septic safe to clean the mold. Powdered detergent and not closing it up after using should help a lot

Odor coming from inside washer

There is a tub beyond the tub you see. Run a load of water with chlorine bleach. This will kill the mold & mildew spores that are causing the odors. ****Do NOT add clothing to this washload****

If possible, keep the door open when not in use. This will allow the inside to dry and mold & mildew cannot grow.
