Answer: 
If you do not maintain the washer, it will eventually have this problem. There are a few things that you can/should do in order to keep this issue from occuring. The easiest and most common would be to leave the door open after the wash cycle has completed and the washer is empty. Also, wiping the door and rubber gasket will help. You also should be draining the washer monthly and cleaning the filter which on LG's are locate on the front of the unit towards the bottom. It is also a good idea to drain the washer if you are going on vacation or not planning on using your washer for days at a time. Lastly, using a washer machine cleaner such as Affresh will go a long way. It's fairly cheap at only $8.99 which will include 3 tablets (3month supply). Use one tablet in a normal cycle or tub clean cycle once a month and you will greatly increase the chances of preventing the mold and mildew build-up.

Answer: 
Leave the door open after wash for awhile and use powdered detergent. For some reason liquid detergent contributes to the problem for some folks.

Answer: 
We haven't yet, but we also leave the door open after a cycle (the manual recommends this). There is also a clean cycle where you can use bleach and it uses steam to clean the tub.

As far as we have been able to tell, the washing machine door can not be switched to the other side. The dryer door can be switched to the other side, though.

Answer: 
We appreciate your interest in this washing machine. The washer door hinges on the left-hand side of the door. The washer door cannot change the direction in which it opens. The dryer, however, can have its door switched if necessary.

Pause Feature?

Is it possible to pause the cycle after it has started in case you need to add something? For example, if you realize you dropped a sock on the floor AFTER you already started the cycle. Can you pause it, open the door, add the sock, and then resume the cycle?

Answer: 
Yes, you can pause the cycle by pushing the start button. You'll have a few minutes to open the unit (once the red light stops blinking), close it and then push the start button again.

Answer: 
Absolutely! You just push the same button to start the cycle, to stop it. You will hear the door unlock, open the door, add your garment and push the start button again to resume. Water does not go everywhere either.
