Question about LG TROMM WM2688H 4.0 cu.ft. Front Loading SteamWasher
I have a six month old LG Tromm. The gasket inside the loading door stays dirty - it seems to collect whatever solid waste it can. How do I prevent this from happening and what is best way to clean this? Thanks!
I have a LG front loader that also had a smell. We have had it for 3 years and it has had miinor smells before thut this week...it smelled like some died in there. First I ran bleach and hot water through a cycle but still had the smell. Then I put some drain enzymes through a cycle and still had the smell. Then I put Lime-A-Way (or any lime and scale remover that can be used in a washer). I ran it through a cycle and the smell is now gone. I'll see how long it last...but it looks and smells brand new now.

First, clean out the filter behind the access door on the lower left front of the machine. Residue left in the filter can contribute to odor issues. Second, buy a package of AhFresh or Whilaway and run a cycle with that, hot water, longest cycle. (unfortunately you do not have the sanitary cycle or the tub clean cycle on your model) Third, and most importantly, USE LESS DETERGENT. Top load washers use up to 45 gallons of water per cycle. Your machine uses 12. Use one tablespoon of HE detergent and one teaspoon of fabric softener (if you use softener) per cycle. My personal LG washer is now over 5 years old, and have only had an odor issue one time. I leave the door closed after I wash. (the tub is vented) Never have had any mold or mildew issues with my washer. Was doing several loads per day when I had 7 at home, now only doing 3 loads a week with all the kids, their spouses, and grandkid gone. Still no odor problems. Great machines if used properly. Note: the odor / mold / mildew issues are basically the same with any front load machine, regardless of brand, and most can be solved following the above advise. Good luck.

I use nylon cable (zip) ties to clean them. (Not sharp, so no danger of poking holes in the gasket) You may want to run a washer cleaner through the machine occasionally, such as Affresh or Washer Magic, or one made by Tide or Clorox.
