    I have had the washer for a year and it has developed a very bad mildew odor inside. i'm using the correct he detergent and very small amounts. I've also added clorox to some loads and run empty washer with clorox to no avail. II've cleaned out the front filter at the bottom. I'm wondering if this is a health hazard. I need a solution, count me in.

I heard also that if you were to put a bit of baking soda in the soap dispenser for the powder detergent, and replace the blue tub for the liquid that it will freshen the machine. No more bad smells

I don't know anything about a lawsuit with LG but the proper solution to this is to have a qualified LG tech disassemble the washer drum and tub assembly and wash it down with a garden hose.  Once it is cleaned out, the smell is gone.  To avoid the smell from returning, do not put more than 2 tablespoons of detergent per wash.  The reason is that the washer can produce excessive sudsing and line it throughout the tub.  The front load washer cannot rinse this excess suds off by itself and will in time, cause that nasty odor again.

Awful smell! I drain it every cycle, I use the washer cleaner, everything! I am so sick of my towels smelling awful.


Sounds like the little flexible apron just in front of your washer drum has mildewed. Take a look and see if it is holding water, and look for mold while your'e at it. Use a good bathroom mold and mildew remover to kill the mess and deodorize it.

LG TROMM - awful smell while washer is running


Use the aafesh tablets as instructed, this will clear hoses that have developed some mold, also inspect drain at the wall, these get moldy and as machine runs, smell comes out of there as well.

Strong mold smell inside washer


Powder is tuff on a front loader, liquid is the way to go. One solution is to use a ratio of 2 Tbls of soap to 1 Tbls of softener as this machine uses 70% less water and this makes the solution of soap much stronger causing a build in the back bottom of the tub. Every one I have rebuilt has had to be scrapped out because of excess soap, liquid or powder. This stuff turns black and is awful. I usually use washer magic only and knowing that one use will not remove even 3 years of build up but is a process of reversing the junk. So I will by one from Walmart for about 4 bucks and pour the contents into the machine will empty of clothes and water and let it sit over night to start breaking the stuff down, then in the morning I will run hot water in the closet sink to the machine so when I start the cycle the water is hot. So after soaking you want hot water with a heavy agitation plus a second rinse and that will remove half of the junk. I usually do this every month on my top loader because of hard water and my clothes do smell much better for it

LG washing machine has AWFUL mildew smell


Same problem and I was told to only use detergents with "HE" on the front of them for high energy. the soap without HE is too foamy and hence never truly drains out and causes a mildew smell. I also purchased something called "A" Fresh that I run in the washer every 6 weeks to keep the smell out. I got it at an appliance store for about $11.00 for 3 tablets
