Question about LG WM-2277HW Front Load Washer
My wash is less than 2 yrs. Stinks like mildew. Nothing seems to rid the machine of the smell.
Make sure you are using an HE branded detergent and cut back on the use of fabric softener to start. If you have a wm2077.2177 or 2277 LG has a board that has a tub clean program in it that can help. You can get the same result though by running a HOT bleach wash or use affresh, www.affresh.com It won't do it all in one go but over time it will make a difference. Leave your door open after the wash and wipe down the gasket as well.
You can help the process by changing the gasket, bellows and drain hose or you can try removing them and cleaning them out.
Another detergent on the market that works well is Persil, costs a bit more but you only use about 1/8 of a cup and it will last 3-4 months so is pretty cheap in the long run.
Note it is not the machine that has caused the problem but what has gone in it so try not to use so much and don't mix brands.
It will take a bit of time but you can turn it around.
