LG Tromm WM2455HG - gasket inside door stays dirty

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!

SOURCE: Nasty water accumulation from washing machine

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.

SOURCE: the door gasket on my

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.

Reinstall on door Front seal (gasket?) that fell off


Sounds like you need a new gasket - those things just "do not fall off" unless they are worn or no longer fit properly.

Rubber gasket removal LG Tromm front loader


We found there is three small holes on the seal right inside the door, check to see if they are clogged with soap scum and clean them out. Run a cycle of hot water and bleach. Then, after each use, leave the door open and let it air dry and this has seem to work.

How to re-attach a door boot


The door gakset is held on by a round ring on the inside of the drum and another round ring on the outside (where the door meets the gasket). Make sure the gasket is oriented correctly, then starting either on the inside or outside, stretch the ring to fit over the gasket and into the channel. There is a spring on the ring clamp that allows it to be stretched. It is easiest if using 2 needle nose pliers - 1 to hold the ring and 1 to stretch the ring by grabbing the loop where it attaches to the spring. You should be able to stretch it far enough to get the entire ring to fit over the gasket and then onto it before letting it go back into position. Be careful not to tear the gasket. Try to orient the ring so the spring is in the 10 o'clock or 2 o'clock position (to avoid door leaks). Hope this helps.

LG Tromm washer constant DE door error problem


A DE Error Code is indicative of a “Door Error”. This indicates that the washing machine door is not shutting, locking or opening. This means that there is something faulty with the door switch and locking mechanism . You should get this replaced or you may have water where you do not want it. biigg53566
