To remove mold from your LG refrigerator water dispenser, follow these steps:
1. Unplug the refrigerator: Before starting any cleaning process, make sure to unplug the refrigerator from the power source to ensure safety.
2. Empty the water dispenser: Remove any remaining water from the dispenser by dispensing it into a sink or container.
3. Remove the dispenser parts: Depending on your LG refrigerator model, you may need to remove the water dispenser parts. Consult your refrigerator’s user manual or LG’s official website for specific instructions on how to remove the dispenser parts.
4. Soak the parts in a cleaning solution: Prepare a mixture of warm water and mild dish soap or a solution of equal parts vinegar and water. Submerge the dispenser parts in the cleaning solution and let them soak for about 15-20 minutes. This will help loosen and remove the mold.
5. Scrub the parts: After soaking, use a soft brush or sponge to scrub the dispenser parts, paying extra attention to any visible mold. Make sure to clean all the nooks and crannies thoroughly.
6. Rinse and dry: Once you have scrubbed the parts, rinse them thoroughly with clean water to remove any soap or vinegar residue. Dry the parts completely before reassembling them.
7. Clean the dispenser area: While the parts are soaking, clean the dispenser area inside the refrigerator. Use a cloth or sponge soaked in the cleaning solution to wipe down the dispenser area, removing any mold or residue.
8. Reassemble and test: Once everything is clean and dry, reassemble the dispenser parts according to the manufacturer’s instructions. Plug the refrigerator back in and test the water dispenser to ensure it is working properly.
Remember to regularly clean and maintain your LG refrigerator water dispenser to prevent mold growth in the future.
