Question about LG WM-2277HW Front Load Washer
Why do my towels never smell fresh no matter what i use tide he also fab softer downy and bleach and they still have a smell to them
I also have had issues with a bad smelling LG Tromm 2277 washer when we leave the door closed after using it. One note on the LG site mentions that soap/scum buildup on the washer drum can encourage mold growth. They suggested running an empty wash load and then pause it after the water fills and add a hot tub cleaning product (Whirl Out - I got it at Lowe's) and restart the load. This stuff should help remove the soap scum and limit the smelly mold growth. My washer does not smell as bad after using it. I also have run an empty cycle with only bleach using the very hot sanitary load setting.

It's good that you are using HE detergent but you're probably using way too much. To test this run the washer empty (no soap) and if you see bubbles inside that's left over soap that's still in the unit. If so, keep running it empty until the bubbles are gone then start using only about 1 tablespoon of soap per load. The washer uses about 1/10 of the water so you need to use 1/10 of the soap. Use the same amount of softner. The excess soap and softner build up in the unit and cause the smell.
