The washer smells and I believe it's because there is residue, mold, etc in between the tub and the rubber seal. Tub clean cycle does not clean the rubber part. Too tight to clean by hand, what do I do it is gross. 

Asked by: katiek691
We regret the trouble you have experienced with this washing machine. Running the tub clean cycle, whether using BLEACH or VINEGAR (never simultaneously), is the best method for removing the soap residue which can develop the mold or mildew. If this, combined with leaving the door open between cycles, and drying the gasket after a cycle is complete, then it may be necessary to obtain the assistance of a qualified technician to locate the source of the smell, and to resolve the matter by replacing certain components where the smell may have settled. 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/support-repair-provider-lookup.jsp.
