I leave the front load door open now between washes and that musty odor has gone away. As for the shaking, since I live in a mobil home I reinforced the floor and use the next to highest spin setting. My ultimate solution for all my LG W/D problems is going to be to sell the home and let the LG W/D set go with it.

My washer jumps around when spinning. this happens intermittently


if it is a front loader and on a pedestal make sure it is level not just front to back but side to side also. Here are some of the reasons a front loader shakes violently.
1-- not level
2-- unbalanced load... washing 1 item or large comforter
3-- Wrong soap.. using reg detergent instead of HE
4-- bolts mounting mach to pedestal are loose. They are located above the drawer. two for front and two for rear.
5-- Faulty shocks.. requires tech to repair
6-- unhooked springs.. requires tech to diag and repair
7-- rear bearing failure. can be checked by pushing up on top front edge of basket and looking for movement independent of outter tub. Sometimes you can feel a clicking of the bearing moving up and down when you do this. This repair usually costs more than the machine is worth if very old. Ignoring this problem can lead to more damage, water leakage, and possibly fire.

During spindrying the WFT9230TP shakes violently although the feet are all pressing tightly against the floor.


The clothes must be balanced inside the drum in order to stop the violent shaking. Unlike a front loader, the top loaders must be balanced before starting the load.

If you need more assistance, let me know.

I have an LG front loader. It washes fine, drum is clean ... no smells in the drum. After each load, I have a huge bowl of water that I have to get out of the little black hose (left side bottom). It...


There will normally be a few cups of water left in the hose although it should not smell very bad though as this water from the last rinse and should be fairly clean. If the drain is connected to the drain under a sink make sure the hose goes up as far as possible then down to the washer.

pump is probably clogged not allowing all water to drain out. Should never see water in the tub at the end of a cycle. About once a month you should run your washer through a cycle with hot water and bleach. Doing that should keep the moldy smell down.

Mold on gasket of LG WM2016CW


the biggest problem with front loaders is that the seal is so good you end up with a moisture issue all the time (which will cause mold). My suggestion to you is always leave the door open when not in use and also try not to leave clothes in the machine after a cycle is over. leaving the door open and a few good cleanings will solve your problem

Kenmore 3.5 frnt loader always has inches of H20 in rubber gasket


does your model start with 417? if so then there is a new door gasket that will help with water left in the boot.
if you have 110, then there is no new gasket/ boot...
you need to clean the drain pump sump screen.
either unit will have a clean out screen that is a removable cover on the front of the pump and it allows you to unscrew the sump filter and clean it out.

LG washing machine has AWFUL mildew smell


If you're not used to seeing water come down the front of the inner glass portion, then your return tube, and/or gasket drainage is most likely clogged. I have the LG WM2277HW front loader and this is what worked for me:

1. Locate water recirculating outlet at the top inside of the gray rubber door gasket- it will have a white plastic piece that directs the water flow inward.

2. Check for blockage at that outlet. Mine had one about 2 inches long. Pull it out with your fingers or tweezers.

3. Check the 3 small rectangular drain holes at the bottom of the gasket; make sure they're not plugged up as well. This is where the smelly water pools from bacterial growth

4. Run through a sanitizing cycle- no detergent, just bleach and watch for more blockage that might come out the tube from the top...it collects on the glass before falling all the way in. Don't wash any clothes before this step, or the gunk will end up in your load.


Hope that helps...pictures posted.
