To continue enjoying all the innovative features your LG washer offers, you need to keep it clean and fresh.
Your washer has a special cycle just to clean the washtub. Keep it in tip-top condition by running this cycle on a monthly basis to remove detergent buildup and other residue, and keep your wash drum nice and clean.
It's always a good idea to remove items from the washer as soon as the cycle is completed. Leaving damp clothing in the washer can cause wrinkling, color transfer and odor.
After using TUB CLEAN, leave the washer lid open for ventilation and drying inside the washer or unlock the handle and pivot it open while the lid is closed.
If a musty smell already exists, run TUB CLEAN once a week, for 3 consecutive weeks.
Your washer's dispenser needs some attention too. It should be cleaned on occasion to remove buildup from detergent and other laundry products.
Don't use anything other than water to clean the drawer, inserts, and drawer opening.
If any household cleaner ends up being drained into the interior of the washer, run a RINSE & SPIN cycle before using it again.
It is advised not to clean these trays or drawers in a dishwasher because a heated rinse can melt or warp them.
Over time, you water's inlet filters can get clogged — especially if you live in an area with hard water. If your washer detects that water is not entering the dispenser properly, an error message will be displayed. Cleaning the water inlet filters is simple and will help your washer run smoothly for longer.
Do not operate the washer without these filters.
If they are damaged or cannot be cleaned, contact us.
Please purchase and use good quality LG-approved inlet hoses.
Some simple cleaning to the exterior can keep your washer looking as good as new. It can be cleaned with warm water and a mild, nonabrasive common detergent. Wipe off any spills with a soft, damp cloth. Do not use methylated spirits, solvents, or similar products, steel wool or abrasive cleaners. They could damage the surface of your machine.
