HiCustomer...LG recommends wiping down the door boot after every wash...Leave the door open to allow air flow when not in use.....You may want to try this product...Thanks Bob

if this is a brand new machine why is it doing this?

Front loaders for years have been know for this problem....What happens is the water sits in the rubber boot....That is where your mildew comes from...There is a small drain hole in front ...If it gets clogged it will keep the water from draining out of the boot also...The model number you have provided is for a dryer...Thanks Bob
