Could be one of the motors burning out or a faulty electronic valve not letting water in properly... unless you are competent working around live electrical circuits, theres probably not a lot you can do.

of course the obvious thing to check is that the water feed to the unit is not blocked and that water is flowing as it should. (do this by turning off the feed, unhooking the pipe from the unit, putting the pipe into a bucket and turning on the flow)

How do I get rid of a smell


Try this

a) Run the dishwasher on the Pot and Pans cycle with vinegar without any thing init. It is tricky when you have to add vinegar. Best way is let the initial rinse cycle go through and when the main wash starts then put the vinegar.

b) or use this dishwasher cleaning tabs. FRESH DISHWASHER Cleaning tabs. May be available at your local HOME DEPOT.

How to get rid moldy smell in LG Front loader washmachine?


There are several cleaners for front loading washers on the market, such as affresh, washer magic, smellywasher cleaner, whirlaway hot tub cleaner, and tide washer cleaner. Clean out the filter located behind the access door at the lower left front of the machine, then, if your model has a tub clean setting, use that with one of those cleaners, if not, use one of those cleaners with the longest, hottest cycle. If things were very bad, you may have to clean it twice. Now, after it is cleaned out,.....STOP USING SO MUCH SOAP ! Use only one tablespoon of HE laudry detergent per cycle, and only one teaspoon of fabric softener if you use that. (Note: Bath towels, used only to wipe off clean bodies, then tossed into the laundry are not dirty enough to require soap usage, and should never have softener used on them) The odors in your washer are caused by a build up of soap and fabric softeners on the inside of the washer's drum. Also, you may have a build up of soap or fabric softener on your clothes. Wash them again once with no soap or fab softener to rinse them out.

My water has been smelling of sulfur. The clothes I was end up smelling of BO after being worn for only a short time. It isnt that the person is smell it is the clothing. Is there something to be added to...


I found that WasherFresh worked better then the Affresh.  What I really did not like is you cannot touch the Affresh tablets, WasherFresh is contained in a pouch and is not harmful to touch, because of the disolving pouch containing the chemicals.  Also after reading the package the chemicals are not harmful to the environment.
WasherFresh removed the odor causing buildup and I now use it monthly as a preventive maintenance.
