Tub cleaning keeps your washing machine in optimal performance by removing detergent buildup and other residue, and keep your wash drum nice and clean. We recommend running the Tub Clean cycle every 30 cycle, or once per month.
Remove any clothing from the wash drum.
For most effective results, LG recommends using a washing machine tub cleaner according to the package instructions:
Tablet: Directly in the drum
Powder: Remove liquid cup insert (if applicable) and pour into Main Wash Compartment in Dispenser
Liquid: Pour in liquid cup insert in Main Wash Compartment
NOTE: *Liquid Chlorine Bleach or White Distilled Vinegar may be used for monthly maintenance, however, they are not as effective as washing machine tub cleaners at removing buildup associated with detergents and hard water.
Close the drawer and the lid, select TUB CLEAN and press START/PAUSE. When cycle is done, wait for washer to cool down and then open the lid.
Use a towel or soft cloth to wipe around the washer lid opening, lid, and door glass.
It's always a good idea to remove items from the washer as soon as the wash cycle is completed. Leaving damp clothing in the washer can cause wrinkling, color transfer and odor.
After using TUB CLEAN, leave the washer lid open for ventilation and drying inside the washer.
If a musty smell already exists, run TUB CLEAN once a week, for 3 consecutive weeks.
Then I think it’s safe to assume that you won’t be selecting the tub clean cycle. Because it doesn’t exist.
Instead, do what is called the manual clean cycle.
Just wipe it out.
