Had noise during spin cycle called for repair $79 dollors later its tub assembly its clamp on the back of drum cost $1000 dollors to repair so if you have 747 during spin cycle buy yourself a new machine.

My Kenmore Elite Top-Load Series 700 Washer leaves streaks on clothing. It looks like dusty powder. I use liquid HE detergent. It was a normal cycle of dark clothes, not heavily soiled or dirty. Also


THE stains on your clothing especially on whites are most likely due to a top seal failure on your transmission. transmission leaking oil. if the clothing affected or the stain can be removed with a solvent like gas, kerosene, paint thinner repair on washer will exed the value .... if the streaks or stains can be removed with a water soluble detergent then the stains are caused by the soap and or hard water deposits in your washer . then the solution to cut way down on soap usage in your washer and or running an acid wash (soap is alkaline acid will dissolve it . make sure not to over solvent your clothes and to rinse all solvents out completely . be careful !!!! a solvent soaked t-shirt bunched up and left in tightly sealed plastic bag WILL CATCH ON FIRE!!!!

How do we clean with this machine .


Is this a front-load washer or top load?

Is the machine operating properly, or are your clothes getting a musty smell?

The musty smell has a few solutions, One may work but probably a combination of all will work best.


Immediately move wet clothes to the dryer, do not let them sit in the washer for a long time.
If your clothes smell, put mouthwash with your clothes directly in the tub during the wash cycle (this will not stain your clothes)
leave the door open when not in use (lets it dry out)
If the washer smells, use bleach and hot water in an empty cycle once in a while (kills just about every kind of bacteria or mold which may be causing the smell)
Use washing machine cleaner once in a while(can be found at your local grocery store isle next to detergent)
Dry your clothes completely, damp clothes can start to smell again.

If you are looking for a new washer, try to find a newer model that features a stainless steel tub with silver impregnation. The silver is a natural disinfectant.

Washer leaves oil type stain on clothes.what could be cause?


Stains on clothes from this model of washer are usually caused by the door boot or the tub bearing going out. I recommend cleaning off the surface of the door boot and if you still get stained clothes I recommend having the rear tub & basket checked. I am also sending you more troubleshooting tips in the image below.

Sulphur like smell when washing the clothes


something not well with motor, like belt or clutch slipping. or motor overheating. you could use the machine until something fails, but i would not leave the house with the machine running.
