The tub clean function does not appear to work properly.

It worked several months ago, but now when I hold the button, I only get a double beep and only the Extra Rinse option works.

Please advise how I can get to tub clean. Thanks!

Answer: 
We regret the difficulty you have experienced with this washing machine. The TUB CLEAN cycle is designed to be activated when the machine has been activated but no cycles selected. At this time, press and hold the EXTRA RINSE button for 3 seconds. The display should then show a message to add liquid bleach to the dispenser. If this does not occur properly, then the unit may require service. To make service arrangements, you may either contact our Customer Interactive Center at 800-243-0000, or you can check our Repair Provider Lookup on our website, at http://www.lg.com/us/support/repair....

The door seems to be twisting and not closing right.
It is making it not want to lock because of being twisted.
Hinges bent, door bent ?
I would like a repair manual.
