    this is a good start but i think the problem is that the cycles are out of sync and the last spin is not finishing.

    thanks for the idea. I will do that first.

Next check your drain, where the hose goes in behind, snake this out. And dont shove the hose in too deep, into the standpipe that is.

If this helps, rate me please.

We use well water . after washing tower 2 or 3 days of use tower it starts to smell musty .how do we prevent this?


If the machine has a "clean washer" setting, run that with 2/3 cup bleach only (no soap). If it doesn't have a specific setting to clean the machine, run a small load with hot water and use 2/3 cup bleach, no soap.

If you're asking how to avoid the problem altogether, you'd most likely need to install a water softener, or water filter.

Fabric softener not going in


Blocked dispenser tube. You need to pull the drawer out ( There will be a clip that you depress in the centre of the drawer when open, that will allow you to slide the drawer out. Clean all the gunge out with a brush and hot water. BTW, if you reduce how much soap you use , you will probably find you don't need fabric softener. Clothes go hard and stiff from the amount of soap that is left in them after the wash has finished. IE/ Towels are the worst for absorbing soap in a machine. In rare cases, water hardness is a factor, but not usually.

Run the washer without any clothes with a cup of chlorine bleach or washing machine cleaner and hot water every month to maintain this issue. Also, check out your manual for specific tips they suggest. Mold usually occurs in the HE's because of issues with airflow, how long wet clothes are left in washer and too much detergent. Hope that helps you.

Whirlpool Duet GHW9100L pours water out of the soap dispenser dra


probable cause is there is an article of clothing that is stuck between the outer and inner tubs, in the area where the dispenser water and detergent enter the machine. you can run your hand around the rubber boot and you might be able to remove the article, it will be in the upper left part of the machine. if nothing can be found than you have a plugged up dispenser hose.

Mildew smell on cloths


The brand of your front loader is not that material on this issue. What is happening is that your old top load washer may have used as much as 45 gallons of water per cycle, while some front loaders use as little as 12. Because of the low water use, you must cut back on the additives you are using. Use only 1 tablespoon of HE detergent (even less if 2x or 3x detergent) per load. If you use fabric softener, use only 1 teaspoon per load. Odor on clothes after wash is indicating that the detergent and or softener has not been fully rinsed out. If you throw a load of washed towels into your machine and start a cycle without any soap, then stop the cycle, you should not see any suds. If you do, there is obviously soap left in the clothes. With bath towels, the towels are used to absorb clean water off a clean body. They do not need soap when you wash them, and never use fabric softener on towels.
If your washer is a LG WM-1832 it has a assessable filter behind the access door on the lower left front of the machine. Clean that out first, and if it has a tub clean or sanitary cycle use that cycle (if not, use hottest longest cycle available) with 3 Affresh tablets or use whirlaway to clean out the washer outer tub (the not visible tub that holds the water). You might want to use another cycle like that with bleach to head off mold or mildew growth. Use of proper amount of detergent and fabric softener should really help the clothes odor issue from then on. Also check the tub seal at the bottom of the door area to clean out any lint from drain hole areas to help prevent water from remaining in the tub seal area.

Soap Dispence problem on GHW9200LW


In applications with low water pressure, insufficient water
volume is introduced during the fabric softener dispensing
portion of the cycle to flush the dispenser.
RESOLUTION:
The holes in the dispenser housing were enlarged to allow
a greater volume of water to flow through the fabric
softener dispenser to properly dispense the fabric softener.
Order and replace the dispenser housing, Part
#8181719, to correct the condition

Lg wm1812cw front load washer


We had the same problem- for us it was because we were mixing laundry booster (Oxyclean) with liquid soap in the dispenser. It seems the water running through the tray had insufficient pressure to properly flush the tray out, so residue accumulated on the back & underside of the tray. Our water pressure is good here, and we don't use a water softener or filters that can reduce the pressure. Unfortunately it seems to just be a bad design of the soap dispenser tray.

We also had a problem with water/bleach leaking from our soap dispenser- when we used the bleach compartment in the dispenser we got leaks dripping onto the floor from behind the front cover of the washing machine. It was running down the front of the washer behind the front cover & coming out onto the floor. The repair guy said this was because the dispenser tray was pulled out too far, but the reason we were pulling the soap tray out so far was because the bleach compartment was too far back in the tray to use if we didn't. Now we just leave the drawer partially closed & pour the bleach directly into the soap compartment along with the soap.
