One of the thick plastic severing spoons apparently fell to bottom of washer, it has melted on to the heater part, how do I get this utensil off if the heater.

your best bet is simply to unplug it and break it off carefully then use steel wool to clean up the heating element of the remaining plastic. if need be and there is no danger of melting anything else you can use a pen torch to heat up and hard to remove plastic and wipe it away with a cotton clothe or scrap of denim some fabric that wont melt.

Washer leaks but onlyu during drying cycle

the main drama i have with these lg washer/dryers is the drying vent blocks up with lint which causes excess heat build up around the heater and it often results in a small hole melting through the front tub under the heater vent where it joins to the plastic tub, it also results in water leaking out the melted hole when it dries but not during the wash as the hole is at the top of the tub, parts are relatively cheap for what they are but its a massive job to replace the front tub.

Can I clean the steam kit DC97-09101J or do i need to re-order?

I would recommend having someone look at the machine. There are a few things that could be causing this to happen (The hose, your steam sensor) and it's better to spend the $ on getting it fixed than just purchasing parts that may or may not fix the issue. Good Luck!

The temperature reached a high enough value to make the plastic melt .The device ran for too long. The device ran without any substance (food) to heat.

Melted plastic turntable teeth

If only the teeth, get a new replacement ring . If it has melted so bad that it is part of the m/wave floor, you don't have much choice. Have you tried speaking to manufacturer?

Hole in Maytag Neptune front load washer door and flaking or melting of door.

I've owned the same Neptune since 1999 and had this problem happen to me twice, the first time the inside molded plastic door melted through in a circular pattern and had to be replaced. The fact that it was circular indicates that something was rubbing during the high speed spin. That something was a stiff bottomed duffle bag that was rubbing on the plastic door during high speed spin. The washer was full of other clothes that didn't allow the duffle bag enough room in the washer tub, hence it pressed against the plastic door. The second time it happened I got a circular groove melted in, but not through, the plastic door... caused this time by a small child's back pack. I would make sure "rigid" items have enough room to "float" in the tub cavity by not putting in other clothing that over packs the washer.

It get to hot, and the heating element stays on and melts plastics. Way to hot.


It's dangerous and using it will cause further damage. It's likely that considerable damage has been done already if plastics have melted.

Your thermostat has failed and will need replacing but it's unlikely that the thermostat is the only part that will need to replaced. Your washer may even be damaged beyond economic repair.

You need to call an engineer. Your machine needs to be professionally inspected and assessed for damage before further use. If the washer is still under warranty, please contact Electrolux
customer support - the phone number for your region will be in your user manual.

Plastic pulley melting

Whatever the pulley is attached to has seized. Either the water pump or tub drive, or something else has stopped spinning. The belt continued to run because the motor kept pulling it, and the friction from the belt melted the plastic pulley. Hopefully its the water pump, as its the most inexpensive. You should change the belt along with this fix, it has also got hot and probable will not last as long as it should.
