Question about Washing Machines

1 Answer

I have an LG WM2277H washer with the dispense drawer stuck shut. There feels like one of the cups that sit in the drawer for detergent or bleach may have popped up and is hitting on the inside. The drawer comes out about an inch but no more.

    Detergent drawer will not open


    Here's a possible solution: Remove the two screws on the bottom side of the plastic clips on the back of the washer (leaving the clips attached to the washer's top), then use the palms of your hands to sharply push the top back about an inch and a half and lift the top off the machine. Now, if you can see enough through the translucent plastic to tell where the hang up is, you can drill a small hole in the top of it to allow you to push that part down so the drawer will open. Then, use foil duct tape to seal the hole.

    LG Tromm Not Dispensing Bleach


    My wife has been complaining that the bleach and fabric softener dispenser still had water in it after washing. After removing the top to the washer I found that there are 4 components to the dispenser. 1. the solenoid (part of a 3 solenoid bundle) for the cold water, 2 the controller to the solenoid 3. The hose from the solenoid to the dispenser, and 4. The dispenser. After checking that there were no kinks in the hoses. I checked the solenoid found it had power at the right time but the flow was low. I shut off all the water and disconnected the lines going into the back of the washer I found that the cold water filters were clogged. After cleaning them (there were 2 for each hot and cold) The washer worked correctly.

    Dispenser problems


    Open dispenser drawer and push down on center plastic tab at back of dispenser to allow you to take dispenser out of machine. Take the plastic pieces off and clean them. (they need to be clean in order to siphon the bleach, softener, etc out. If there is water left in them, the water fill valve is OK. Cleaning should fix your problem. If you are using concentrated additives, try diluting them a bit with warm water when you add them to the dispenser. Remember, only one tablespoon (max) detergent, one teaspoon (max) fabric softener per load.

    He4t - monthly bleach cleaning cycle


    Washer Monthly Maintenance Procedure:
    This cycle uses higher water volumes in combination with liquid chlorine bleach to thoroughly clean the inside of your washing machine.
    1. remove any clothing or items from washer
    2. CLOSE door (duh)
    3. open dispenser drawer and remove the detergent compartment and set aside. No laundry products will be added at this time. You will be required to add only liquid chlorine bleach at a later step.
    4. For Kenmore Elite HE products press a specific combo of buttons.
    • Select Rinse/Spin program
    • select low spin speed
    • select warm/cold water temp.
    • select 2nd rinse option
    • push the "end of cycle" signal button 4 times within 5 seconds to start the cycle
    The machine will fill and run a short sensing cycle. This will take about 3 minutes.

    Step 5
    1. The washer will provide 4 short tones. Check the: ESTIMATED TIME REMAINING display for the codes indicated below:
    • if "Ab" (add bleach) displayed in the estimated time remaining window (you'll hear 4 short tones) proceed to Step 6.
    • if "rL" (remove load) displayed in the Estimated Time Remaining window an error tone will sound. The door will unlock.
      -open the door and remove the items from the washer.
      -continue the cycle by pressing the START button.

      NOTE: The water in the unit will dispense for a moment, then the door will unlock, lock again, and then the cycle will continue with another check for items in the washer.

      The machine will fill and run a short cycle to determine whether any items have been left in the washer. This will take approx 3 minutes.

      the washer will repeat Step 5 until it can determine that there are NO items n the washer and will display "Ab" (add bleach).
    6. Add liquid chlorine bleach.
    • If using the maintenance procedure for the first time, open the dispenser drawer and immediately add 1 cup liquid chlorine bleach to the Main Wash detergent compartment. The liquid bleach should immediately flow out of the dispenser.
    • If doing a monthly maintenance procedure, open the dispenser drawer and immediately add 1/3 cup bleach to the Main Wash detergent compartment. The liquid chlorine bleach should immediately flow out of the dispenser.

      NOTES:
    • Water will be flowing into the dispenser drawer when the bleach is added ... this is normal.
    • Do not add any detergent to this cleaning cycle. Use of more than 1 cup of bleachw ill cause product damage over time.
    7. Once the cleaning cycle has begun, allow the cycle to complete. An est cycle time will appear on the display.

    8. After the cleaning cycle is complete, leave the door open, clightly to allow for better ventilation and drying of washer interior.

    9. Replace the detergent compartment divider.
