Letters Are Coming Off The Front

  • Control Panel Issues
  • Letters Rub Off
  • Troubleshooting
  • Washer & Dryers, Washing Machines


Letters rubbing off of the control panel are usually the result of a cleaner or cleaning method. Chemical cleaners are too harsh and should not be used. Only a warm, wet cloth is necessary to clean the control panel and display.

Abrasive cloths such as scotch pads and steel wool are too harsh for use on the control panel. This will scratch off the letters.

If detergent has been spilled on top of the unit or around the dispenser and a cloth was used to wipe up detergent and then to wipe off the control panel, the detergent may have caused the letters to rub off. Laundry detergent is very concentrated and can ruin the finish of the appliance.
