REALLY thorough clean of a front loader
Model Number: WM2250CW Brand:
1 - 5 years
I have an LG WM2250CW. I'm also extremely, extraordinarily, insanely allergic to mold. Recently, clothes coming out of the washing machine have been making me sick, and running the washer on its self-clean cycle hasn't solved the problem. I'm trying to figure out what I can do to really, really, REALLY thoroughly clean the washer.
The boot seal is the obvious culprit, and I could replace that, which would get rid of any nasties stuck in there. I'm also guessing that the little drain hose has gotten clogged, because water has been staying trapped in the boot seal. That seems like an obvious thing to do. (Though man, coughing up $83 for that inner spring expansion tool is a drag, and I wish there were some reasonable way of doing without it.)
I'm wondering if there are other things that I can/should clean or replace. Remember, we're not talking about ordinary mold concerns, we're talking about a degree of sensitivity that's almost beyond belief. So if there's anywhere that water or mold or gunk could conceivably get caught, I want to know about it.
