I have an LG Tromm WM 2233 HS. When I wash my white shirts there is a black residue that i have wipe from the clothes. What do i need to do to solve the problem? Is the residue coming from the tubing or the gasket? will changing the gasket help? Do I need the gasket with the drain or without the drain?
What other parts will I need? Thanks
Answer Hello Lance,
You could check the gasket 4986ER0004F to see if there is a residue in the gasket that would be causing the issue. You may also want to check to make sure that there is nothing in the pump that could be causing the residue. Try running a clean cycle with nothing in it to see if this helps clear it up. If this does not clear up it may be coming from the gasket.
I have a musty smell from inside of the stainless steel tub area on my LG WM205CW and doesn't appear it is coming from the door gasket. The door gasket is clean and does not smell. I have followed the manufactures recomendation and run the "tub clean" cycle with bleach but the smell keeps coming back after the tub drys. I keep the door open when not washing. Do you think it is a combination of soap scum, mold, and debis caught behind the tub area or is it in the drain or both? Any suggestions or will I have to remove the gaskets and clean behind the tub?
drain and tub?
Answer Dave, Try this, Add four(4) ounces of powderred automatic dishwasher detergent (any brand will do) directly into the tub. Add one(1) cup of chlorine bleach directly to the tub, fill the bleach dispenser with chlorine bleach and start the washer on a normal, hot wash/cold rinse wash cycle, and allow the cycle to run the full cycle to off. You may have to repeat the process a few days later. after one or two processes,and the odor dissipates, you'll want to make sure you're using the proper amount and type of detergent, fabric softner and the warmest or hottest water temperature for the type of load being washed. Check and make sure the drain hose is not taped or sealed to the drain pipe. Once you're satified, you may want to purchase W10135699 and use it to clean the washer a few times a year, to reduce chemical build ups in the tub interior.
Is there a good way to clean the drain hole at the bottom of the gasket without removing the gasket? I am getting a lot of "some scum" and debris out of it. Do I need to remove the gasket to clean it thourghly. How hard is it and do you need a special tool to remove and re-install?
Answer Hello Dave,
There are two special tools for the door boot. 383EER4001A outer spring clamp tool, and 383EER4004A inner spring clamp tool. I would recommend to let white vinegar set in the drain while your not using the machine. Just put about a tablespoon down in the drain after your done using the machine. This won't remove debris but it will keep mold and algae from forming since mold and algae are generated from bacterial actions that white vinegar will kill.
