Common issues with LG front-loading washers include excessive noise while operating the unit, shaking, appearance of mold, bad odors and regular maintenance procedures that can be both time-consuming and inconvenient. While many of these issues can be prevented or dealt with easily by the unit owner, some may point to larger problems that only a professional can identify and fix.
LG front-loading washers can experience significant noise issues if the washer is resting on ground that is not level or on a surface, such as as carpet, that is not a solid foundation. If the LG washer is producing loud noises, the legs of the washer may need to be adjusted.
Mold can form on the inside of the front-loading door between the glass and the rubber seams. To remove mold, use a cloth with bleach to wipe it away along the surface.
Unusual, unpleasant odors may arise over time with consistent use of LG front-loading washers. This may be in part to mold that has accumulated. Removing the mold may help solve the problem. In addition, regular, continued cleaning and maintenance of the washer may also help.
One issue that can be easily remedied is shaking. Typically, if the washer is shaking then it is most likely not situated evenly on the floor. Adjusting the legs of the washer or moving it to another area of the room may help solve this issue.
Regular maintenance can be an issue with LG front-loading washers because of the time it takes and the number of steps needed to complete for regular maintenance. Removing and cleaning the dry pan, any accumulated mold, the hot/cold connection points and calcium or mineral buildup requires a lot of time.
