Question about LG WM2688HWM TROMM SteamWasher
Whirlpool Duet front loading washer smelly cloths...need solution
Posted by Anonymous on
Hi, had this exact problem this week. Realised that it had happened since I switched to liquid detergent. Tried the "maintenance wash" as I do once a month anyway and no effect, still smelly. Cleaned rubber seal, soap box, etc. Ran the washer through on the hottest wash with a "dishwasher" tablet in the drum and voila, smell gone!! Have now switched back to "soap powder" and after three days, smell is still gone. Hope this helps.

I have this problem with my Siemens machine, it is due to mainly running low temp washes and bateria building up in the hoses etc. (more prevalent if the machine is connected directly to the sink and not on a stand pipe). I run a 90 degree cycle every 4 weeks with the machine empty except for two capfuls of baby sterilisng fluid (approx half a mug) I buy stores own as it is cheaper than miltons. The first time I did mine I ran the cycle twice to be sure it was cleared out. My machine is six years old and the first smelly signs were when it was about a year old, I run the maintenance wash religiously ever 4 weeks and run a machine descaler such as oust thru every 4-6 months. Hope this helps. Roni. (ps don't be tempted to use bleach as it foams up and can cause more problems!!)

For replacement parts - head on over to PartSelect.com or
RepairClinic.com and enter in your full model number for a full parts
I recommend both sites because ...
FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.
PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.
If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.
Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.
If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.
Thanks for using FixYa - a 4 THUMBS rating is appreciated for answering your FREE question(*&^%
