I have a Frigidaire front loader washing machine. Model LTF2940ES1. Purchased at Lowes in 2006. It is white with a porthole style window with blue-gey surronding the window. On arrival, it had lots of papers on the porthole that I slowly peeled off but the residue from the advertisement info remianed. I have tried everything to remove the film residue. It is no longer sticky --it just looks terrible. The washer is attractive but all you see is the cloudy porthole window. I have called the company (Electrolux) who said to try go-gone, peanut buter or some type of oil like vegetable. It only made it more cloudy. I called back and they said it is my problem they dont cover "cosmetics" . Just wondering if anyone has had a similiar issue or can provide a suggestion. I appreciate it .

try a medical rubbing alcohol pad, use a rolling action to catch and roll off the fugitive glue, then pick off the glue balls.

Avoid letting the alcohol run or come in contact with the finish area or the door gasket.

dry with a paper towel, then rinse off the alcohol.

I have used WD40 successfully in the past but it still took a lot of elbow grease and its residue had to be cleaned off afterwards to avoid constant odor.

If the glue, etc. is just on the glass of the window, a razor blade scraper might be able to be used? I wouldn't try it on any plastic or pained areas though.
