Help! The print on the front of my 6 month old LG washer has dissolved because it got detergent on it. I can't tell water temp,cleaning options etc. I called LG and they don't cover "cosmetic damage". I labeled the areas with a sharpie. Anyone have any ideas. LG didn't.
I have run into the same problem with my LG microwave oven/toaster. The did a poor job protecting the silk screened legends for the controls. I made my own labels. Avery makes label material that you can print on your ink jet printer. It's not crystal clear, but at least I know what button to push. Avery 8665 Clear Full Sheet Labels. Available at Staples and other stores.

error can sometimes present because of a miscommunication between the
control panel and the wash motor. In this instance, the washer simply
needs to be reset.
Step 1: Unplug the washing machine. Step 2: While the washer remains unplugged, press and hold the [Start/Pause] button on the front panel for 5 seconds. Step 3: Plug the unit back in, and run a rinse and spin cycle to test if the LE code is cleared.
Are there soap suds visible in the drum? Over-sudsing
is the main cause of LE error codes. Using non-HE (high efficiency)
detergents or too much detergent will cause stress on the motor. In
addition, detergent residue can also cause leaking and odor. Follow
these steps to resolved an LE error code caused by over-sudsing.
Step 1: Unplug the washer and allow the unit to sit for 30 minutes to give the suds time to dissolve. Step 2: Plug the washer back in and press [Power] to turn on the washer. Step 3: Do not choose a washing cycle. Press the [Spin Speed] key until "No Spin" is selected. Step 4: Press [Start/Pause] to begin a drain only cycle. Step
5: After the drain only cycle has completed, remove the clothing items
from the machine. Turn the power back on and select [Rinse and Spin] and
then press [Start/Pause]. This will remove excess soap suds and light
residue from the drum. Repeat this step until no visible suds are in the
drum of the washer.
Have you tried cleaning your washer? I had a similar problem before and it is mostly caused by my brand of powder detergent. Detergent residues somehow confuses the functions of the system. I switched to an HE liquid detergent.
You can try cleaning your washer. Run an empty hot water cycle and add one cup of distilled white vinegar. It will help dissolve detergent residues as well as molds and mildew.
Sorry to say but your washer will need a complete tub tear down to clean out the odor. The reason this has happened is because of excess detergent usage. It's not mentioned in the owner's manual but most manufacturers say to use only 2 tablespoons of detergent per wash. But since most people are used to putting in a lot of detergent, the excess suds has stuck the upper half of the tub assembly and the front loaders are not designed to rinse that off. You will need to call a repair technician to have the unit completely torn down and cleaned out properly.
