Question about LG WM-2277HW Front Load Washer

Spotting on Towels and sheets

We have had this washer for a while, and it works well, but sometimes towels and sheets come out with white spots that look like bleach stains. We are not using bleach or liquid softener. Happens with both HE and normal Cheer and New Era. Anyone having a similar problem or can suggest a fix?

Cut down slightly on the amout ot detergent you are using.
Check the inside door window, that probably has a residue of detergent on it from a previous washing. I wipe my inner door off with a towel that is going into the wash cycle. For as long as I have been diligent in wiping off the inner door window my the spots on my clothing haven't returned.

Remove bleach stains

I don't think you're going to get bleach stains "out". The bleach has removed the tanning in the leather and it's not coming back. Have you tried polishing them with the same, or similar colored shoe polish like Ki Wi (sp?) shoe polish? if not, maybe a cobbler can tan them with products he has?

Removing ink from dryer

After trying all the suggestions mentioned, I tried nail polish remover and it worked pretty well. I only had the non-acetone variety on hand. I'm guessing the acetone version would be quicker so I plan on keeping that around 'just in case'.

It took about an hour to an hour and a half to clean it all off, it was all over ever bit of the inside of the dryer so it was pretty bad. Be sure have good ventilation. Take a deep breath BEFORE sticking you head inside the dryer drum and try not to breathe once your in there.

Also, be sure you check the area close to the dryer opening, the ink seemed to 'hide' there. I went over every bit of it twice (I had brand new white sheets to dry and wasn't taking any chances!). Rinsed it thoroughly with a very wet towel, did that twice.

Then I tried the suggestion about the towels with Clorox. I put two very wet bath towels (white unless you have old ones you don't care about) and poured about a quarter cup of bleach onto the towels. Then turned on the dryer. Did that twice also. Almost every bit of ink is gone. There are some small stains on the enamel that may vanish in time but they posed no threat to the new sheets.

I dried the sheets and they came out perfectly clean with NO ink spots on them. Success!
. Expect to use some elbow grease, but it worked!
. Good Luck to you

My whites are not comming clean and are not a bright white

I don't know if this is a solution to your particular problem but when we wash whites, first, we wash them twice,with hot water, second, we dont use bleach!!! (this will eventually yellow them). Third, we dont use liquid softner. For the whites we use a softner sheet in the dryer. Since we started to use this procedure I have noticed a marked decrease in areas such as under arm stains in white under shirts. I have some that are 2 years old and have no stains or yellowing like this. Hope this helps

Clean clothes that smell bad

ngafm at your service!
You may have a small amount of water or lint lift in the machine somewhere that is not completely dumping out !
This is sometimes common on front loaders! Or the pump is weak!
I tell my customers to try running the washer without clothes once a week with hot water and a 1/4 cup of bleach!
. BUT the first load you do after this must be white in case there is a drop of bleach left in the system, that it does not spot bleach a white spot on your colored clothes!

If not this does not remedy the situation you will need hands on service!

Whirlpool duet front loader washer/dryer

It is not the dryer causing the problem. We get the brown streaks on our white clothes before putting them in the dryer. I have ruined more white clothes over the past six months with this Duet washing machine!!! We also don't use bleach so I don't think it is the HE/Clorox combo that somebody mentioned earlier. Anybody know what exactly is causing this yet... before I throught the moldy stain causing Whirlpool duet out?

Rust stains and bleach spots.

I'm sorry but the white spots will be due to bleach. It may be that there was undissolved bleach in the washer after the first load. Maybe some of it came out with the whites and lay in wait in the basket.

I doubt the makers would guarantee anything for 7 years, so no free basket or installation is likely. Seems there is a chip in the enamel and dampness / water from the previous wash days before sits there collecting iron as rust particles.

For the time being you could try rinsing the machine out before the first load. That might prevent the rust marks or reduce them.

Streaks in towels/sheets

From experience, Bleach will stay in the machine and bleach load after load (esp with an enamel or poly drum). Normally have to run a HOT empty cycle to clean it out.
