Question about LG WM-2277HW Front Load Washer
We love our LG front loader, however it smells and the gray rubber ring looks stained with mold. Also, water stays trapped under the ring. I clean it after each use and leave the door open so that it dries out. I've run clorox through the system and sprayed every product known to man on inside the machine, but this only mask the odor for a short while. It's driving me crazy and making my laundry room smell bad. Any ideas?
A few ideas to try but understand that these will not solve your problem 100%,.. To begin with. make sure you are using HE type detergent and use ONLY a few drops per load..any more than that will just end up damaging the front door hinge hardware and you will have to replace that... As for the mold problem.. that has plagued this type of washer for a while.. to my knowledge.. there is no known cure but you can buy Afresh tablets from ( home depot carries them) .. and run them thru a wash cycle about once a month ( more if necessary) .. they do seem to help a little,...I too have the same washer and have been most disappointed by the degree of problems it has had.. Also.. keeping the door open and wiping the gray gasket ( including the area that where water exits the washer..) may help a little too,...
Hope that helps...
