Mouldy very smelly rubber seal around the door of machine. Normally only use 40 degree or lower washes have tried washing at 90degrees but has made smell much worse.

Hello, W/D here.

If you feel around the underside of the bellows seal (the rubber piece that extends from the door opening to the tub), you will feel that it is slimy and will have debris stuck in it. Use paper towels or similar to remove as much as you can all the way around the circumference of the seal. Mix up a solution (about a quart/liter) of bleach and water in a 50-50 ratio, and wipe down the underside of the seal liberally, then clean the facing side as well. Pour the remainder of the solution into the tub of the washer, along with two more cups of bleach. Fill all of the dispenser cups (detergent/softener/bleach) with bleach, and select the hottest, longest cycle available. For us, this is the "sanitary" cycle. Run this cycle, and follow this with a normal cycle to remove the bleach residue. Front loaders are more prone to moisture build up than top loaders, and, for this reason, they are more likely to produce mold and foster bacterial growth. One very good thing to do after the sanitizing cycle that you just ran is to leave the door open between wash cycles. Top loading machines were normally left open as a matter of convenience, and did not produce as much of the smells associated with front loaders. This was due to air being allowed to circulate freely in the machine between washes, keeping the moisture contend lower,making it harder for growth to occur. Top loaders also drained around the seals better due to gravity. Even with the door being left open, you may have to run a sanitizing cycle as before from time to time. How often depends on your washing pattern, the quality of your water and other variables, so let your nose be your guide. In the most severe cases of odor, where the seal itself is permeated with bacterial growth, the seal can be replaced. Other options can also include removal and cleaning of the strainer. Normally, these are not required. Regular cleanings with proper air flow will normally be sufficient to keep the washer sweet smelling.
Try the cleaning first, as this normally does the trick, and leave the door open. If need be, post again, and one of us will guide you through the process further.
Best regards, --W/D-- Please take a moment to rate this solution. Thanks.

Try using bleach with hot water, run a cycle with hot water and bleach. Or spray bleach +water mixture on the seal. Run a cleaning cycle with hot water and bleach or vinegar at least once a month to reduce the growth of mold in other parts of the washer. If the growth is very high then try and leave the door open for 4-5 hours and let it dry and then spray the bleach+water (3:1) mixture on the seal. Let it dry for another 2-3 hours. You may need to change the seal in case of extreme growth of mold. Hope this helps...

LG wm2077cw washing machine: cold water won't shut off.

You probably have a bad cold water valve. Remove the screws ot the top cover after unplugging unit These screws are on the back at the top. Slide the cover back and up. Trace your cold water line to the valve and this is the one that is bad. It is held on by screws from the back. Remove the old and replace with the new.

One downfall of the front load machine that it holds moisture causing musty smell in drum. Try leaving door agar between washes and use a cleaner specific for front load smells 1 every month.

My LG dryer shuts itself off during the normal cycle and a dotted

OK, here's what it sounds like to me: The line going around the display should only be seen if you selected "Wrinkel Care" function for that cycle (and with the freshen up cycle, I beleive). With that option in use, after the dryer shuts off, if you do not open the door or turn off power to the dryer the dryer will display the moving rectangular segments and every 6 minutes the dryer will turn itself on and tumble for 10 seconds with no heat (to keep clothes fluffed up and prevent wrinkles from setting in) and will continue this cycle for up to three hours. The "Freshen Up" is the steam cycle used to remove wrinkles from 1 to 5 garments, like things that were all wrinkled up in your suitcase. Try drying with a normal or permanent press cycle, or a timed cycle. If you have additional questions or concerns, let me know.

LG TROMM Model WM2077CW-mildew on rubber

First and foremost you MUST use an HE detergent, HE(high efficency) is design specifically for fontloading machines.. and use little amounts of it, 2-3 tablespoons is all that is required to clean a full tub of clothing.
Jusst using less of regular detergent is not the same as using correct soap. the moldy smell and black filth when the front bellow is pulled back is actually residual detegent not being disovled in normal operation , all front loading washers are experiencing this issue, there is a new product on the market to help combat this problem and for the 1-2 months ive been reccomending no one has told me that it hasnt helpd. heres the link

Washer smell

the easy way it completely wash out a washer is by taking your soap dispenser out washing it and pouring bleach into the machine through the dispenser put on a full programme after it has finished you will have to put the washer on a full programme again with nothing in it and no more bleach this will flush the system out of the bleach so it should not stain your clothing but 1 other item you will need to check and that is your door seal if you close your door after each wash then what happens is it stays wet which gets moist on it a this starts to get mouldy and then starts to smell you will need to change your door seal, never close your washers door totally this will prevent this from happening again
