Question about Washing Machines
I have a Kenmore Elite top-loading washer that is 7 years old. We will put bleach in the bleach disperser and wash a load of whites with no problem. If we then follow that up with several loads of coloreds (without adding bleach to the dispenser), some of the coloreds in the second, third, or even fourth loads will sometimes come out with bleach spots and be ruined. It is not always the very next load that is affected, and most times it doesn't happen at all. The bleach spots are usually small and often appear in the same pattern as the holes in the tub (about 1/4 inch in diameter and about 1 inch apart). The bleach dispenser and solenoid were recently replaced. The only explanation I can come up with is that the dispenser is not releasing all of the bleach when it's suppose to, and then dumping the rest into a subsequent load. But why it creates these spots stumps me. Any guesses as to what is going on here?
Thanks for the question its possible that the bleach disp is clogged and when its suppose to release the bleach some stays hehind and theres still some left over from the last load i would check that thanks the appliance doc
