The washer seems to clean the clothes well, however at some point during the cycle there is a foul odour. Smells like dead rotten socks or something deceased. I have had several service calls about it and they can't fix it. I am cleaning the machine every two weeks as directed. I think it because of the poor design of the front seal which never completely empties of water at the bottom after each load. It retains about 1/2 cup of water (maybe dirty?) which just sits there and grows mould in the seal. I pretty much have to keep a towel there and soak it up after every washing. Really annoying. Bad design LG. My next washer will definitely not be an LG.
