Hello
Welcome to fixya.
I'm Huuum and happy to assist you,

You said,you have a Eurotech front loader. Lately you have observed that your cotton materials come out with oily spots after wash. What can one use to address this problem.

In most front loaders when this happens it is usually either of two things.
1.Front loaders must have HE detergent for their use and if you do not use HE detergent you must cut your detergent and bleach in half.
Because to much detergent destroys your seal and eventually your bearings! And any other rubber seals like the rubber door seal in the front opening.
These degrade and get into the wash and depending on the color of the rubber (Black or gray) are found to stain your clothing or leave a residue in those colors.!
Those washers with Grey rubber like Maytag's have gray stains and or residues!
I have people asking me about this problem every day!

Call the manufacturer and ask if they have any cleaner that you can run once with out clothes to put an end to this!
And then use HE detergent and or half the dose of bleach form now on!

I hope this brings some lihgt to your problem. Please let me know what the Eurotech proplr tell you to use to clean it out of your washer!

Please remember to leave a rating before you go!
Thank you

if this is a top loader, there is a seal that seals your agator shaft from water going down and oily grease from comming up. if you remove your agitater and have excessive play in your shaft you may need seals

New LG2101 front loader drum noise


Try rotating the drum by hand and see if you can feel a 'hard spot' If your machine is new you should have a warranty. If so, ring the service line and ask a consultant about the noise. The may even be able to listen via the phone and advise you...Good luck .....Nomess

Front Loading Washing Machine: Fully automatic.
1. Better washing than toploading as technologically proofed.
2. No extra effort except putting cloths and detergent inside.
3. No need to observe in between while washing. Start and forgot. You can go market and come back.
4. No issue if electricity or water went out during washing.
4. Take more water compare to toploading semi-automatic.
5. You can not open it once it started.

Top Loading Washing Machine: Semi
1. Save water and detergent.
2. Need extra effort to put the cloth from one box to another.

I have a Frigidaire front loader washing machine. If there are only a few lightweight pieces of clothes, the water will not spin out. Also some of my clothes have spots on them after washing. What do I do?


For the odor, you might try running a cycle with a strong bleach solution (no clothes!!!). Leave the door open when not in use to air out.

Certain Frigidaire models will not spin out if the door switch is damaged or is defective.

Unplug the machine first before doing this!!

You can access the switch by removing the top (remove two screws from the back of the panel). To remove the switch, remove the two screws from the front of the machine where the door latches. Locate the switch and observe how the wires plug into it. Replace with new switch.
