Put garments in a laundry mesh bag or pillow case...silk will snag on even the smallest imperfections in the drum. Then do the extra gentle wash the other person suggested. Other wise always hand wash in very cool water and mild soap.NEVER use a bio, ever!

How long is the gentle cycle?. I prefer to make my own delicate cycle. I let the machine fill, agitate about 1 min. then turn off and let soak about 15 - 20 min. Make the machine pump out and start spin very briefly. stop machine. let fill up again and repeat to rinse. Don't let agitate for more than 3 or 4 min total wash and rinse don't let spin completely.

LE error on LG 2277HW


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.


Has a large load size been used with a gentle wash setting?
Gentle wash cycles such as Perm Press, Delicates, Hand Wash, and Wool/Silk should only be used for smaller loads. Because the cycles are more gentle while tumbling and spinning, too many items in the drum can register as an issue with the motor. In this instance reset the unit and run a test rinse and spin cycle.


Has the washer been overloaded?
Single bulky items or large loads can add extra weight to the drum and place stress on the motor. Remove some of the clothing and restart. If the issue is still present after a few items have been removed, unplug the washer for 30 minutes to allow the motor to cool and then restart the cycle.

I am just trying to figure out how many cubic feet my whirlpool calypso washer (model gvw9959kq2) is? Thank you.


The 3.5 cu ft Whirlpool GVW9959K is a unique washing machine that is Energy Star Qualified. It features the Calypso technology which helps prevent piling, shrinking and provides excellent stain removal. Save money and energy (up to $100 in utility bill savings) with this Energy Star Quiet Wash washer. The multiple cycles which include the hand washables cycle, the wool cycle, the bulky items cycle, give you the many options you need in determining the right cycle for your laundry. Automatic water level settings, multiple wash/spin speed combinations, 5 wash/rinse temperature combinations, and stainless steel wash basket with limited lifetime warranty are just some of the many reasons why this washer is the best choice for you. However the washer has a quirkiness also. They tend eat garments from time to time and take a dump when overdosed on detergent. The basket is suspended on four rods and is easily removed for servicing the motor and pump. The pump has a motor mounted on it. The whole time the washer is in motion water is continually poured over the clothes. It has a heck of a spin cycle at the end. Theory of operation, how to operate, repair and diagnose them fault does is HERE in the service manual.

Is this a new installation?
In new installations, 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.

Code LE, will not finish the spin cycle


It's very important not only to use "HE" (High Efficiency-Low Suds) type detergent--but to use the correct amount.
Nearly all brands of "HE" detergent have incorrect dosage instructions.

The correct amount is as follows:

HE: (2) Tablespoons Per Washload

HE 2X (double concentrated) : (1) Tablespoon

HE 3X (triple concentrated): (1) Teaspoon

This reduces/prevents:

1) Musty Odor

2) "LE" Error/Interrupted Cycle

3) L-O-N-G Cycle Times (longer than time displayed)

4) Insufficient Cleaning Results

5) Small Water Leaks from the air vent behind the washer or at the
front door gasket

6) Damaged Hall Effect Sensor (on 2007 or older LG washers)

7) Reduced Spin Speeds (laundry not spin-dried effectively)

Lg tromm front loader washing machine display panel reading l-E.


error code 'IE' means water does not enter the detergent drawer..if your water is hard or contains traces of lime deposits, the water inlet filter may become clogged..regular cleaning is suggested..clean the filter using hard bristle brush..

note: hard water is the one not undergone any treatment..in other words it is directly from the ground through your water pump and to the washer.

Usage of HE detergents


The best he soap I have seen yet is all, he is high effieciency low suds soap. The rule of thumb for liquid he soap is 2 Tbl for every 1 Tbl of softener. Powder can be used but is not good on pumps and build up in tubs. If you have a water softener you can use 25% less soap. Still with powder you need about a 1/4 cup per load to equal a 2 Tbl liquid variety. Suds damage pump impellers, seals and hoses from expansion and that is it on the reason "why to use he".

Usage of HE detergents


ONLY USE HE DETERGENT, The repairman just left my house today, 24 August 2009, my washer had water spewing from the detergent tray, and soaked my floors:PROBLEM, my hoses were filled with NON-HE detergent, the repairman was really nice and told me that it could have automatically voided my warranty, but he wrote it up "differently" and smacked my hand. He showed me the hose and if was just clogged terribly, he ran the spin and rinse cyle and I thought the suds would never go away, but they finally did.

HE ALL THE WAY from now on

"Green" He Detergents Available?


Because all modern detergents work quite well with any application, that challenge would be totally up to you to make that selection.

Solution, detergents that produce low suds are better suited for front-loading washers.

Good luck.
