there is a lot of lint especially on black clothes after wash with 6.5kg Front Load Bosch Washing Machine WAE20261AU. How to fix this issue?


Before the wash ad few cups of white vinegar to the washer half filled with water.let it run for sometime and then drain off fully.
Now for the wash add a cup of white vinegar along with the detergent. clothes be pit in inside out, cotton and polyester have different tendencies. so as towels.
So keep them for seperate washing to avoid more build up.

we have an Aquasmart top loader and our clothes, mainly dark items, are being covered by a scum after washing. We have put the machine through the clean cycle, but this has not made any difference.


I have found with my aquasmart that if you use the 'high efficiency' the water does not cover the clothes sufficiently which is why the soap residue (noticeable more on dark clothes) is visible. I don't use high efficiency. even on conventional sometimes I still have to check that the water level is high enough. Also **use only liquid, low sudsing detergent and do not put it on the clothes-use the dispenser only. As for my machine... Time for the repair man to check the sensing I think

start by cleaning out the filter in bottom,
remove the access panel bottom 3 screws , open filter , some excess water will spill ,
clean it out,
next clean under the rubber flap around front of drum.
run borax through a cycle.
run clorox in a cold cycle
the issue may be that the back of the drum is coated with waxy goop from using too much softener,
