Welcome to fixya
You sad,My clothes get dingier ever week from using my washer especially the towels. They are now Grey and not white
1.Here are some ideas and INFO!
2.How old is your MAH5500B washer and did you buy it new?
3.Do you use HE High Efficient detergent?
4.Do you ONLY put the proper amount of detergent directed to be used by the manufacturer?
5.Using to much detergent will degrade the seal and eventually destroy the bearings.
Which will cause oil to leak out on your clothes and sometimes make gray stains on them !
6.Is there tiny gray oily pieces in the wash and on clothes?
7.Look closely at your rubber seal around the opening. Is this worn or deteriorating away slowly due to bleach or detergent? Is it a gray or black rubber?
Please have patients and bear with me, with all these questions I propose to you here!
"I am searching with your eyes for things I have seen in the past about this model"
Here are some reasons this may also happen!
How large of a load can I wash in my Maytag Neptune washer?
* The tub can be loaded completely full with dry, unfolded clothes. However, do not pack the tub tightly. If the load is heavily
soiled it is very important not to overload the washer.
My whites are not as white as I’d like.What can I do?
* Wash white loads using the cotton/sturdy fabric selection. Select the hot wash/cold rinse temperature setting and put 3/4
cup of chlorine bleach in the bleach dispenser. The bleach will be dispensed in the final minutes of the wash providing for
optimal whitening. Maytag recommends a hot water wash temperature of 120-140° F (49°- 60° C).
*The lint filter in side the machine may be clogging with dirty lint!
*Which means you needed service!
I hope one of these solutions is the reason!
Let me know how you do!
