I'm a smart guy, but can't see where the detergent goes. When I open the door I see a spot for the faberic softener and another for bleach, but no place marked "Detergent". We purchased this until 2nd hand so I don't have the paperwork. Any thoughts?

Use warm water and powdered detergent. Leave the door open in between cycles and it will be clean as a whistle in a week... Powdered detergent is HE also, don't believe the hype, stop wasting your money on useless chemicals to rinse away the garbage chemical soaps you are being ripped-off by... Hopefully, the liquid detergent hasn't corroded the washtub and drive shaft so badly it is oozing slime!
OK there are a lot of people with the smelly front load washer . the smell is caused buy a build up of detergent it is recommend that you use 2 tbs of detergent and 1 if you have a water softener. also leaving the door open after a washing is good to help it air out . to often people blame the door gasket because they get spots on them well the rubber used is a antimicrobial rubber so it cannot mold . the smell is actually soap build up trapped inside the washer if you run your washer with nothing in it and see soap suds your using to much detergent. there is hope though cutting back on detergent and using a product called Lemeshine mc3 will eliminate the odor issue.
I do not know this model. However, on other top load LG washers, the powdered detergent goes in a box at the back (top) of the washer, and the fabric softener when diluted gets poured into a spot near the left side of the top of the washer. (The bleach goes near the front of the washer.) For front-loading washers, the detergent and fabric softener are poured into the detergent drawer. The largest compartment is for detergent (wash cycle) and is usually on the left. The smallest compartment is for fabric softener.
It typically has some residual water after a load. All you need to do is to remove the detergent dispenser and dump the water out. To remove the detergent dispenser, pull it out as far it will go, then look into the detergent slot. There should be a horizontal plastic tab in the back of the detergent slot. Press the left side of the plastic tab and pull the dispenser out of the machine. Then you can dump the water from the bleach and fabric softener slots. Just slide it back into the machine and your good to go. Hope this helps.
Without seeing the spots, this is a bit speculative, but here goes,......
I'm guessing that the spots are only found on the front side, primarily of shirts, or blouses, etc. These are from grease splatters from cooking, which many times only show up after washing and drying. The soap releases some dirt, which is attracted to the non-removed grease spot, allowing it to show up. Re-wash the clothing, pre-spotting those areas with a citrus pre-spotter.
Chris your agitator problem is repairable. remove the fab softener cup and the cap on the agitator down inside the opening you should see 4 pieces that look lik a tear drop is my best description for them your are wore out and do not engage when the agitator agitates replace them and you'll be good as new.
cut down slightly on the amout ot detergent you are using.
Check the inside door window, that probably has a residue of detergent on it from a previous washing. I wipe my inner door off with a towel that is going into the wash cycle. For as long as I have been diligent in wiping off the inner door window my the spots on my clothing haven't returned.
