Liquid bleach tank WM2277HS

When I fill the liquid bleach tank it empties out into the detergent tray and runs down the front of the washer. The whole tank drains out and makes a big mess.

Liquid bleach tank? Do you mean the small container one puts fabric conditioner into for the final rinse?

They have a siphonic action. In normal use you put a small amount of liquid into the tank and when the machine starts the final rinse, water is added. Once above a certain level the siphon starts and empties the tank into the machine.

Take the drawer out of the machine, put it in the sink and slowly run water into the tank and you'll see that the level rises to a point then the tank empties.

So, perhaps you are adding too much bleach (or whatever) and the liquid is siphoning out before you even close the drawer.

Or do I misunderstand your problem completely?

Hi! We bought our WM2455H washer on February 1/2009 from Best Buy. Suddenly on several washes my clothes become spotted with brown grease. It does not occur at every wash, but what is happening. Please...


Do a tub clean cycle. Hottest water, no clothes, cup of bleach in washer, fill bleach dispenser with bleach, fill softener with bleach. Run once or twice. The 'grease' is actually residue from liquid detergent and/or softener. So stop using liquid detergent and switch to powdered (no residue believe it or not). Use plain white vinegar in place of softener. The acid eliminates the mildew residue and also helps get detergent residue out of your clothes. Good luck.

After each load the "fill bleach cup" is filled with water. I have to take the whole tray out and flip it up-side-down to empty the water. I cannot find where the thing can be clogged. I can't use bleach...


Bleach & fabric conditioners "syphon away" into machine... try adding 1/2 lt water to the bleach compartment, if it then syphons away your syphon is not blocked. If it does not drain you will need to find the syphon cap - genarally just a tube, most manufacturers will make the tube a different colour to the rest of the draw.
If it did drain when water added you may have issues with bleach not being a part of that particular cycle, delicates for example...

My washer is leaking detergent from the tray on the front of the washer. I cannot find anything online to help.


YOU MEAN THE TRAY WHERE YOU PUT DETERGENT, BLEACH, AND FABRIC SOFTENER IN? IF SO, REMOVE THE TRAY OUT COMPLETELY. REACH INSIDE MAKE SURE THERE IS NOTHING IN THERE THAT COULD BLOCK THE WATER GOING INTO THE MACHINE VIA A HOSE. AND ALSO CHECK AND CLEAN YOUR TRAY. THE TRAY CAN BE DIS-ASSEMBLED TO CLEAN. RUN IN WARM WATER AND MAKE SURE YOU CLEAN THE WHOLE THING OF SOAP AND SOFTENER RESIDUE. DON'T FORGET THOSE TINY LITTLE HOLES ON THE TRAY AND THE REMOVABLE CAPS

Washer smells have tried wiping the rubber ring and dealer sold s


You may find it hard to believe, but most newer front load washers have this problem after being in use for a while. Mine is a GE, and they have the worst reputation according to owner forums.

So here's the fix:

First, I assume you know that little pieces of stuff build up under that rubber ring at the bottom. You need to clean that out with 50% bleach and 50% water. Occasionally it doesn't hurt to run a quick wash without detergent through the machine empty. Add bleach liberally to the water. After it is done, leave the door open a crack to allow it to dry.

It's the nature of the beast!

The softener holder just fills with water but will not drain.


Is water left in the dispenser at the end of the cycle?
About two tablespoons of water remaining in the dispenser compartment at the end of the cycle is normal. At the end of the wash cycle, fresh water automatically cleans the dispenser. Check that the cycle is complete before opening the dispenser drawer.
Is the dispenser drawer clogged?
A clogged dispenser can block the flow of water through the dispenser and cause water to leak out. Manually remove the dispenser, and clean any leftover detergent or additives that could clog the flow of water through the dispenser. Also, check that the detergent drawer is always completely closed during the cycle. If the drawer is not closed completely, water can leak out onto the floor.
Are the additives dispensing too early?
Here are a few things that can cause the additives (detergent, fabric softener or liquid chlorine bleach) to dispense early:
  • Check that the dispenser is not overfilled. Do not fill past the MAX fill lines on the dispenser. Overfilling can cause early dispensing of liquid chlorine bleach and/or fabric softener.
  • Check that the detergent separator is in the correct position. For liquid detergent, the separator should be in the front position. For powdered detergent, the separator should be in the rear position. If the separator is in the rear position while you are using liquid detergent, it will dispense immediately, which is not how it is designed to work.
  • Use powdered HE detergent when using the DELAY WASH option. Liquid detergent may dispense prior to the start of wash.
Are the additives dispensing too late?
The additives will not dispense until the proper time if the DELAY WASH option is selected.

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.

LG TROMM WM2487 Bleach not getting fully removed after cycle


Keeping in mind that the bleach gets dispensed into your wash on the second to last rinse cycle and that most all rinse cycles are in cold water.  Is your cold water valve screen plugged causing your washer to rinse poorley?  Are you using the HE detergent?  If not maybe the washer is sudsing up to much and haveing a hard time rinsing all the suds and bleach out.

Fill the washer up with no clothes in it on a cold/cold wash setting does it take a long time to fill the washer up?  Also when it is full and agitating is there suds in the washer?

Last suggestion is if the drain is hose is alot higher than the top of the washer it might have a hard time draining out all of the bleach water before the next load
