Question about LG WD-14124RD Front Load Washer / Dryer

1 Answer

Trom Front Load Washer

Dear Expert,
Some one told me that you could clean a front load washer with: 1st cooking oil and then 2nd vinegar. Is this true? I have not wanted to take that change since the instructions say to use bleach only.
Also, how many times can you use the cleaning cycle (clean drum) using bleach? I'm having trouble with bad odor (like moldy smell). I only use about 1 tablespoon per load of He laundry soap.

Thanks.
Zanna.

I have never heard of cooking oil but I have heard of vinegar. If you have had your washer for a while (over a year) it could take several times of cleaning to get rid of the odor. Also be aware that liquid softner actually builds up worse inside the tub then the soap does so only use 1 tablespoon of softner. If you run the washer with nothing in it and you see lots of bubbles in the water you still have the build up inside the tub. The last item I've heard of is something called "whirlout" (not sure on the spellng) that you can get from a hot tub dealer.

Own a lg wm1832cw front load washer doesnt seem to clean properly when wearing tee shirts for an hour smells like they never were washed paid alot of money for this thing seems cheaper top load machines...


Hi

The smell usually comes when the washer is unable to drain water completely, you can run your washer at its hottest temperature setting with 1 cup of vinegar inside the unit. After this take off the bottom front panel and clean it completely, also clean the drain hose and drain pump filter, the smell should disappear after doing all this. Hope this helps...please post back for further assistance.

Is it alright to add vinegar in the Kenmore front load washer. I find this removes smoking odors the best.


The answer is YES but keep in mind that like all Front Load Washing machines, use less vinegar than you would a typical top load washer. If you would usually use 1/2 cup of vinegar (4oz) try using half of that.

Front loader smells like stale cigarettes during cycle


Make sure that you are using high efficiency (he) detergent. Pour 2 cups of vinegar in the tub and fill the detergent tray with vinegar. Run it on the hottest, longest cycle. You can also use a Front load cleaner such as Afresh, made by Whirpool. I think that Tide makes one too. Vinegar is usually readily available. At the end of washing for the day, leave the door to the washer slightly open so that fresh air can get in and dry it out keeping moldy, milduey smell down. If it mildews, use a rag and bleach water to clean the boot seal. Hope this helps.

Run a vinegar wash periodically. My mother has an upright that was doing the same thing and all the repair man told us was to not use powder detergent, clean the gasket, and do the vinegar washes periodically.

You are probably using too much soap and softner. You only need about 1 Tablespoon of each for a full load with a front load machine. Run it with nothing it in except bleach. If you see bubbles inside that means there's left over soap in the tub. Keep running it empty (with bleach) until you don't see bubbles anymore then start using less soap and softner.
