    The inside of my dryer is turning blue as well, I assume it's from all the jeans being dried and the dye rubbing off?

Drum would not turn and there was a humming noise. Then the drum started to turn but throws blue sparks when it is turned on. These are inside the dryer. Not inside the drum. The belt is ok. It is not...


The is a wire rubbed through inside there...DO NOT use your dryer until you get the wires fixed!!! Turn off the power to the dryer at the circuit breaker and do not touch the dryer till all power is OFF!!!

There can be many reasons why your dryer will not start or turn...

The most common causes are the belt breaking or jumping off, or the motor going bad...

Here are a couple of tips that I wrote will help you to figure out why your dryer will not run...

Turning blue inside

Surely this could only be from your washing powder or conditioner. Is it blue by chance? If so, use less or change brands.

Inside of dryer is turning blue. How do I clean it? My clothes do not seem to be affected by whites are staying white...but I can't figure out what to do about this.

My best guess, is it is your blue jeans. fingernail polish remover..non acetone usually does the job. Stay in a well ventillated area when doing this. Good luck.

Detergent dispenser stuck

Had the same problem here today, the softener dispenser blue plastic piece was loose jamming the whole dispenser tray, to resolve remove top cover, two screws on top rear, slide the cover towards the back, you will then see the detergent dispenser, press the right clips and pull it off slightly at the back; do not put too much pressure and try to remove the cover completely, just pry the plastic cover a bit then pull the detergent tray it should come right out.

Front loader LG washer drawer for detergent is stuck won't open

Remove the top of the washer by removing the 2 retaining screws (phillips head) from the back of the unit & sliding the washer top back about 2" & pulling up. You will see a white detergent dispenser box with several hoses coming off the back in the left front of the unit (this box contains the detergent drawer). The lid to this box is held on by 8 pressure snap clips. You only need to release the 4 snap clips (3 large, 1 small at the rear) on the right side of the box (nearest the washer drum). Pull up on the right side of the lid while pulling out on the detergent drawer. It should come out normally. Do not reassemble until you read below, then reverse the steps to put the washer back together.

The problem will be the "softener" lid (blue). It will not be sitting down in the drawer assembly & will catch on the lid of the white detergent dispenser box. Simply remove the blue lid to avoid future jambs. It only serves to identify the fabric softener recepticle & it keeps fabric softener from splashing around when water enters the system. You may need to remove the entire detergent drawer periodically to clean (push down on the blue thumb indent inside the drawer to release it from the housing).

Hope this keeps you from drilling through the lid & ruining a $23 part, like I did.

Blue dye under three seperators inside dryer drum.

ok " you would have to pull the drum to get at those screws

what I would do is use a tooth brush with some bleach
that should take care of it.

Water is leaking out of detergent dispenser- big time

Water pressure may be too high,try turning the cold water feed pipe (usually the blue one)down a little,not too much though.If this does not solve it,is the machine lying level front to back? If not pack up the front of washer until level.If still no good take out dispenser drawer completely check for obstruction inside housing of machine. Also while drawer is out clean the underside or top of dispenser housing with an old toothbrush or similar tool,(you will see several pin holes where the water comes out when filling).To take out dispenser open drawer fully and there should be a clip at top back of drawer that you push while pulling drawer at the same time.Hope this is useful to you.
