Question about Washing Machines
We have a bad oder coming from our front loading LG washer. We've cleaned the filter and done everything that we know to get rid of the smell, but it's still there.
Are you using HE (High Efficiency) detergent in the unit? Most times the odor found in the units is because owners use regular laundry detergent instead of the low sudsing HE type. It is imperative that you use the proper detergent to avoid odor in your unit. Some of the fixes are to run an all bleach cycle with no clothes in the unit. Also, to leave the door to your unit open when not using it or at least cracked to allow the unit to dry out. Make sure to wipe out the gasket of the washer, sometimes trapped water there can also smell over time. Finally, there are some commercial products you can use to lessen or eliminate the smell. Here is a link to one product you can purchase at your local Best Buy™ store. http://www.bestbuy.com/site/olspage.jsp?skuId=8550249&type=product&id=1188560830483
I hope this helps!
