My washing machine leaves the clothes smelling bad and i call lg support and they don't want to fix the washer and the lg man came out and said thats a manufacture proble and gave me a case number and...

To prevent a smelly washing machine, leave the lid open on the washing machine when a load is removed to allow it time to dry out. If smells do happen, try washing an empty load with hot water and a mixture of baking soda and vinegar. For front loading washing machines, it is vital that you leave the washing machine door open in between loads. You will also need to wipe down the rubber seal of the washing machine. Small bits of debris and hair can become trapped in the crevices. Giving your machine a quick wipe down after each use will prevent smells and mildew. ONCE YOU GET IT CLEANED OUT IT SHOULD BE GOOD AS LONG AS YOU FOLLOW THESE STEPS.

Hi. my washing smells damp if left in washer for more than 3 hours after wash cycle. have cleaned machine with a special cleaner and started washing at 40 instead of 30.

30 is a very good temperature for encouraging the growth of moulds and bacteria, and 40 is a near perfect temperature for doing so.

There are a few steps you can take to reduce the severity of the common problem you have.

1. Run the machine empty on the highest temperature wash possible (ideally 90 degrees C, but even a 60C cycle will have a positive effect). As you have an existing problem, give it a few goes to start with and consider adding either laundry bleach or peroxide powder (any of the stain removing "oxy-action" type powders are pretty good at bug killing). Afterwards, run at least one boil wash per month, either with items suitable for boil washing or if not just run the machine empty.

2. Between washes, always leave the drawer open an inch or two and leave the door ajar to allow air circulation.

3. Weekly, remove and clean the detergent drawer and the aperture it fits into, and clean the door seal.

4. Try lower dosages of detergent and conditioner. Overdosing just wastes money and provides food for the moulds and bacteria producing those foul odours. Manufacturer's recommended dosages are always rather generous as they sell more product that way.

5. Try different brands of powder and conditioner. For some reason, certain brands (especially of conditioner) cause problems in certain machines, and it's not necessarily the budget brands.

6. Keep your conditioner in the dark. Once opened, if any bug spores get into it the light just encourages them to breed.

7. Consider using an all in one powder which includes the conditioner. Apart from saving money they seem to cause fewer odour problems.

8. Avoid liquid type detergents, other than the special types designed for woollens and silk washing. Not only do liquids cost a lot more, they are ideal breeding soups for some bacteria.

9. If you have to leave laundry in the machine for a few hours post-cycle, consider setting the machine on rinse hold until you return to it. By leaving them in a soggy pile inside the machine they effectively become a textile compost heap and also become far more creased. Rinse hold slows the process down a great deal and reduces your ironing time, so the small time penalty in allowing the machine to complete the final rinse and spin when you return is usually more than offset.

Smelly washing machine and washed clothes

This is usually because of a bacteria build up on the machine. Suggested actions: Remove and thoroughly clean the soap tray. Remove the waste pipe from the drain pipe you have it poked into and ensure that all is clean and emptied. If your machine has a filter (Usually behind a 4 inch square door on the front towards the bottom of the machine if one is fitted - this depends on the machine and I'm sorry, I'm not familiar with your madel). Finally, take 2 or 3 DISHWASHER TABLETS put them in the machine's drum and wash at the highest temperature that your machine will allow. Modern biological washing powder uses bacteria to break down and "eat" stains. Bacteria creates unpleasant odours. Dish Washer tablets and powder is designed to kill bacteria. Hope this helps

Washing is damp smelling also machine i take washing out as soon as machine stops

This is generally caused by bacteriological action due nowadays to low temperature washing . try a regime of anti-bac washes WITH NO CLOTHES IN THE MACHINE , small dose bio powder and the hottest 90 degree / boil wash every six to eight weeks.

Marks on clothes

Hi. Souds like an Effect called ****. Usually caused by not using enough powder, or washing at too low a temperature. You should do a boil wash at least once a month with powder in but no clothes in. It is called maintenance wash. Always wash at the recommended temp on the wash care label. Good luck
