Disolved lettering on fornt of LG washer

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.

My 6 month old Whirlpool duet front load washer will dispense detergent but will not fill with water or spin. The timer stays the same # of minutes. What is wrong?

Check Owner's manual. If there are no troubleshooting clues, look for a customer service number. There should be a warranty if only 6 months old. If no fix I'd go that route.

I've got an LE code on the front of my washer

This 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.

Hope this helps.

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.

I have a six month old Bosch dish washer and 8/10 times the powder is not disolving?

Here are some of the possible causes; 1. Low on water (fill the machine, let it start and see if the unit has enough water). Sometimes the screen on the fill valve get partially clogged and slows the flow and when the timer engages and therefore enough water was not installed. 2. Defective fill valve (partially sticking valve sometimes will not let a unit get the proper amount of water before the unit starts and therefore the powder in not dissolved). (3)Any detergent will generally dissolve when contacted with water, unless is has had previous contact with water or is old....

Dishwasher only a couple of months old. Ran it

The water may not be hot enough. Increase the temperature of the incoming hot water or try this: put the tab in the open soap cup so it will start to dissolve during the pre-wash. Then it will finish dissolving during the main wash. If the dishes get clean using this method you may not have to increase the water temp.

Moldy smell in washer and on towels, etc.

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.
