Hi

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. You can also try using 1/2 a cup of Washing Soda or 4 cups of baking soda Crystals and run the machine with no clothes in it. This would remove all the debris, lint & mold growth from the drain pump and drain filter. This would clean the mold from the door seal as well. Please post back for further assistance. Hope this helps...

SOURCE: Mold Smell in front loading LG Tromm

Make a boil wash (with no clothes and detergents) put in the powder's drawer a cup of bicarbonate of soda. It should clean the machine and move out the bad smell. Good luck!

SOURCE: washer smells bad

A colleague had trouble with clothes smelling bad after washing them. Turned out it was due to using a low temperature wash all the time which allowed the build up of some nasty bacteria inside the machine. The manufacturer recommended he used a high temperature wash about once a week to keep it clear and it's been fine ever since. Just a high temperature (non-economy)wash, no need to add bleach.

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: My washer a Tromm LG

Sears has tablets for front load washers that work great. I use one every month and it has helped the stinky washer smell and the bad smell in the clean clothes. It is called Affresh and it works better than any of the cleaners you can buy in the grocery stores.

I have a Tromm Washer and Dryer. Washer cycle time taking twice as long as time on indicator. Mildew smell still there after I have cleaned filter and run wash cycle. Drum vibrates horribly on spin...


You may have a problem with the motor sensor. Replace the motor sensor and it should take care of the problem. As for the mold issue, purchase some washing machine cleaner and follow directions. It should take care of most of the smell issue. Good luck

How do i get the mold out?


A lot of times liquid detergent and liquid fabric softener will cause this. Dry the door seal after use and leave the door open. Don' t use bleach if you're on a septic system. There are products that are septic safe to clean the mold. Powdered detergent and not closing it up after using should help a lot

My clothes smell mildewy. Why?


Front loaders are known for building up mold and the smell.
It’s caused by using liquid detergent which is made from animal fat. Use powder. And use the minimum amount.
It’s caused by using fabric softener. Dilute it 50/50 with water.
It’s caused by the water remaining in the tub between washes. Leave the door open to allow it to dry. .
Pull the rubber door seal back and clean the mold off .
Affresh is recommended by some manufacturers. You run it through a wash cycle with it.

Washer stinks - smells like mold or mildew


You have to kill the mold. To do that mix one cup of clorox liquid bleach into one quart of water and wipe all aroung the rubber. Let it dry and do it again. That will solve your problem

Stinky Washer


We had the same problem with our front loader. (after only a year) We ran a load on "sanitary" setting with bleach. After that we leave the door open after EVERY load. That has fixed our problem
