Question about LG WM2077CW XL Front Load Stackable Washer with 7 Washing Programs

1 Answer

Machine clogged and rust and stink

I purchased my machine about 3 years ago and beside stinking and mildew my machine stays clogged up and it is rusting where you have to drain the pump filter and the water and bleach and liquid fabric softener does not empty completely. I have cleaned it but it doesnt help I am to old to pull the heavy machine out from the wall all the time. I will never purchase a machine like this again. I am trying to get some new filter so maybe that will help.

To help clean the unit, do a large load of whites, extra bleach, extra-super-heavy-duty wash, hot wash and hot rinse. many small loads sometimes cause the unit to "smell up"

Get rid of mildew safely, fast and cheap.wont stain cloths.


Your car got wet when the widow broke & now it stinks inside. My motor coach stinks because the roof was leaking water. The house stinks because the roof leaks.
HERE IS HOW TO FIX IT LIKE NEW FOR UNDER $12.00
first, fix where ever the leak is. NOw your couch,chair,rug,car seat & rugs,clothes,bed whatever, stinks because mold,mildew & fungus is growing all over.
depending on the size of the area buy 1 gallon,2 gallons or 3 gallons for large rooms,motor coaches, etc of WHITE VINEGAR which usually costs $2.25 to 3.00
per gallon. Spray lots on anything that is mildewed, moldy of has fungus growing.
the white vinegar will kill mold,mildew and fungus, within 30 minutes ,on contact.
The white vinegar will not stain clothes,carpets ,car seats or uphostered chairs however, i would keep it away from finely finished woods as it might possibly affect the fine finish. It probably wont, but test a small area that is not conspicious, just in case there is any reaction.
the white vinegar is often used in salid dressings , so aside from the room or car or your clothes smelling like salid dressing for a couple of days , no other side effects. the smell goes away, even from areas that you drenched in white vinegar, in a tops of 3 weeks. If you need the smell to go away faster, open all windows and direct a 20 inch box fan at the smelly area. anyway,the vinegar smells a lot better than the mold & mildew. It will save your cloths,your bed,your car, your interior rooms in your house, basements,garages, wood sheds, even wood lumber, that has been left outside too long, as long as the wood is not rotten.
The easiest way to apply the white vinegar is full strength and just pour the white vinegar right from the bottle into a 1 gallon pump up ortho sprayer, and spray your mildew room,rug,car seats,motor coach,basement,clothes or whatever. I has two rooms in my house get a good soaking in that big hurricane 2 years ago, sandy, i think it was called, and 3 days later the mildew smell was so bad i couldn't stay in either room. So I let everything in the room have it ,liberly, except for the tv set,which i kept dry.
The next day,i could only smell the mildew very faintly and the vinegar a lot,so i opened the windows and turned the 20 inch box fan on. I let the windows open 24 hours with the box fan on, after 24 hours, i could still smell a little vinegar,so i turned off the fan but left the windows open for another day. I was able to go in & watch tv again, but had some of the vinegar smell, not bad, but i kept looking for a salid to eat. 2 weeks later,the vinegar smell was completely gone but i noticed a faint mildew smell from the rug, so i gave the rug an even better soaking with vinegar. I had not applied enough vinegar to the rug to get down into the underpading where some mildew had survived and started to grow again. after the second application to the rug, It again took 3 weeks for the vinegar smell to disappear but the mildew smell was gone forever. The vinegar did not stain anything and i even applied *** to cloths that had gotten mildewy smelling in a leaky closet. 24 hours after i sprayed the clothes,i washed them and am wearing one of the shirts,restored to like new, as i type this. So,sometimes,you need a second application. sometimes you dont.one spray will do if you dont have rug underpading that needs to be really soaked good.
I have used the white vinegar on lumber left outside,sprayed it good and came back in 3 hours ,after it dried and started cutting the wood to fit on my mail box mounting. This stuff really works good.try it and i am sure ,you will like it.

Cheapest way to apply white vinegar is to empty your windex bottle into a jar,fill the windex bottle with white vinegar and have fun pumping the trigger about 400
times. works good for small areas if you dont have arthuritis in your hands.

My washing machine stinks of mildew.


Mine was the same way and I finally tried a mixture of concentrated lemon juice and water in a spray bottle and saturated the entire door boot with it and used 1/2 cup in the wash with no clothes and it helped. The citrus in the lemon juice is a great deodorizer.

Our 5 yr. old LTF2940ES0 reaks of mildew and is covered and stained with mildew on the inside rubber ring. It does not drain all the way after a cylcle, either. I have scrubbed and washed it with bleach...


The problem is the big round gray rubber seal and the ridges. I have this exact washer and had the exact problem. It stunk. There is a replacement gasket for $100+ that I purchased. (It's what the new ones come with.) It has no ridges and more holes to drain the water out of. It was a pain to replace it but it was well worth it. It is like having a new washer. We tried all of the bleaching, special powders, etc and none of that worked.

My wirlpool duet front load washer stinks both when in use and not in use. how do I thoroughly clean and fix.


Is the odor simular to mildew? If so do you leave the washer door ajar after use? If not you should, it helps promote air circulation and helps dry out the inside preventing mold and mildew smells. I would run the washer on sanitary cycle or hot water cycle with bleach and baking soda. Then leave the door ajar from then on.

I have an Everstar portable A/C unit that I purchased from Home Depoy 2 months ago. It works fine but it has begun to stink. How do I stop the odor?


There is water(condensation) that has built up in the unit and is stinking due to the water is growing mildew. Is the air conditioner condensation line plugged? If this is a window unit also make sure that it is level or not all the water will drain out and cause this odor. The odor should diminish after the water has completely dried out.

My GE Adora front loader- our clothes stink!


Clothes washing rules for mildew stink: 1) never leave clothes in machine for more than a few hours 2) never add too many detergent or clothes 3) clean the machine itself. Also if your fabric softener port is gummy there is a good chance you got some funk from that so clean all places where you have fabric softener contact. After all that, if this doesn't help you may need to run an empty load of strong hot bleach water and follow it with a hot empty rinse then a load of whites
to becareful not to ruin your colored clothes

Where is cabin ac filter located


If the air conditioner emits a foul odor into the cabin it is probably the drain tube on the evaporator core is clogged. What happens is the clog causes mildew to start growing and then it blows the stink right into the car. And to answer your question the cabin air filter location all depends on the year make and model of the car.
