Question about LG WM1814CW Front Load Washer
My front-end washer, about 6 months old, is starting to smell like mold and going on my towels. Is it okay to use OxyClean to fix the problem? Thanks...Marilyn
Sorry to say but your washer will need a complete tub tear down to clean out the odor. The reason this has happened is because of excess detergent usage. It's not mentioned in the owner's manual but most manufacturers say to use only 2 tablespoons of detergent per wash. But since most people are used to putting in a lot of detergent, the excess suds has stuck the upper half of the tub assembly and the front loaders are not designed to rinse that off. You will need to call a repair technician to have the unit completely torn down and cleaned out properly.
