Spots on the clothes

I wash my shirts and items as specified with liquid Tide, and a diluted solution of Downey, but most of the cotton shirts come out with spots all over them.

    OMG! Me too. Do the spots look like they are oil spots? They have a brownish color? I purchased my washer in October of '07. Within in a month I was noticing the spots. I have 3 children and between my husband, my children, and myself, I have had hundreds and hundreds of dollars of clothes ruined. I cant just go out and replace them either. What can I do? I do use Bounce dryer sheets, but how do those leave spots? Any help, PLEASE.

I think Bounce would lose alot of money if their products caused dammage to clothes, it's nothing to do with detergents or anything in the drum apart from you clothes. The bearing seal at the back of the drum has failed (common problem) the oil that lubricates the bearings is now leaking onto the clothes as water flushes it out.
Open the door and pull the inner drum towards you while holding the outer drum in place, move it side to side also if you can, if there is virtually zero movement then your bearings are okay which is good because faulty bearings can cause alot of other dammage.
Usually you cannot get the bearing seal seperately as it comes in a kit with the bearings. This could be reasonably costly because the drum has to be removed to get at the seals and as a standard procedure the bearings are replaced as they have been compromised by the seal wearing away and water getting in.

IF YOU ARE USING BOUNCE IN THE DRYER ON HIGH HEAT IT WILL CAUSE SPOTS ON THE CLOTHES IT'S NOT THE WASHER.

I just bought a defy top loader dtl 151 and it keeps tangling the clothes


Here are a few suggestions.
Sometimes too much water ( or not enough clothes) will result in tangled clothes.
Sometimes the types of clothes will tangle more easily than others.
( Thin cotton tee shirts or long cotton dresses might tangle easily. )
I might recommend you mix in some heavier and thicker items to help, such as towels or blue-jeans and see if that fixes the problem.
God bless your efforts.

My Frigidaire FTF530FS Front Load Washer appears to be leaking oil and it is getting on my clothes


Hello Loree Grudem - This can be the result of the shaft bearing and seal. They may have become worn and the transmission oil is creeping up to get in your water. Once this happens, it gets on your clothes to cause staining. Or possibly you have a buildup of fabric softener that comes loose and puts a greasy like substance in your water and on your clothing. Once you put your clothes in the dryer and the old fabric softener melts you will see these spots. I suggest contacting a professional to move forward accurately.

Maytag a112 manual on how to add bleach AND fabric softener


Hi
Choosing Your Detergent, Bleach, and Fabric Softener..
Learn what the different items you need to wash your laundry.
Liquid Laundry Detergent and Fabric Softeners
When using liquid laundry detergent, you do not want to poor it directly on your laundry. The dyes in the liquid laundry soap could stain your clothing. You will want to start your washing machine and add the liquid laundry soap while the water is filling the washing machine.
You then can add your laundry once you have about and eighth of the washing machine tub filled. This will ensure your laundry doesn't become stained by the detergent. You should only add the amount that is poured into the cup to the fill line. When you add more, you could find yourself wading through mounds of bubbles overflowing from your washing machine.
The same reasoning applies to liquid fabric softeners. However, liquid fabric softeners are added to the washing cycle after the initial washing cycle is finished. You will want to add the fabric softener once the washing machine has filled with water and started to agitate. This keeps the fabric softener from touching the laundry and will work it into your clothing better.
Powdered Laundry Detergent
You will want to add one cup of loose laundry detergent to your washing machine in the same manner you would do the liquid laundry detergent. By doing this, the powdered laundry detergent will dissolve easier.
Bleach
When adding bleach to your laundry, there is a small triangular cup in the corner of your washing machine. By adding one cup of bleach into that dispenser, the bleach will be added to the laundry at a precise time during the wash cycle.
Setting Your Washing Machine
Most washing machines have three or four cycles. For instance, the Maytag Washer I have has four cycles, regular, permanent press, delicate, and soak.
Regular Washing Cycle
The regular cycle is used for the following types of clothes and other apparel:
• Jeans
• Towels
• Blankets
• Sheets
• Quilts
• Bedspreads
The soil types for this cycle are heavy, normal, and light. This means clothes or other articles that are lightly too heavily soiled should be washed in this cycle. This is due to the washing cycles can be set from a minimum of eight to fourteen minutes maximum. You can use all three of the water temperatures in this cycle.
1Permanent Press Washing Cycle
The permanent press washing cycle is used on the clothes that may or may not need to be ironed.
Such as:
• Blouses
• Shirts
• T-shirts
• Under garments. This would be your unmentionables and socks.
• Jackets
• Sheets
• Baby Clothing
The soil types for this wash cycle are normal and light. The washing times for the permanent press cycle are six minutes to ten minutes. You can use all three washing temperature modes for this cycle as well.
Delicate Washing Cycle
The delicate washing cycle is normally used for sweaters, cotton, silks, and other fabrics that need to be washed with care.
The soil types for the delicate cycle are normal and light. The washing times for the delicate cycle are four and six minutes. It is best to wash your delicate clothes in warm or cold water. Always wash clothing that is more than forty percent cotton in cold water to prevent shrinking.
Soak Washing Cycle
The soak cycle would be used for heavily soiled clothing, such as, football and baseball uniforms. This will help rid the uniforms of caked on mud and grass stains.
You can also use this cycle if you wish to only bleach your white's once a week or once a month with bleach.
Washing Your Laundry
Choose the cycle you need for your laundry. Add the laundry detergent, fabric softener, and bleach (remember regular liquid bleach is for white clothes only.) Start the washing machine and let fill to dissolve the dry detergent or to mix in the liquid detergent.
Now add your clothes to the washing machine. Clothes the lid so the washing machine will continue to wash your clothes.
If you are using a Laundromat, put your clothes in the washing area and shut the lid or door. Add your detergent and other cleaning items in the correct compartments. Put in the correct amount of change so the washer will start.

Greasy looking spots on clothing after washing/drying.


Without seeing the spots, this is a bit speculative, but here goes,......
I'm guessing that the spots are only found on the front side, primarily of shirts, or blouses, etc. These are from grease splatters from cooking, which many times only show up after washing and drying.
The soap releases some dirt, which is attracted to the non-removed grease spot, allowing it to show up. Re-wash the clothing, pre-spotting those areas with a citrus pre-spotter.

STAINED WHITE T-SHIRTS, DULL LINEN


Hi! I am a habitual cleaning type person and clean clothes rate at the top of my list. I have 4 recommendations that SHOULD help tremendously for ALL your clothes but is most evident in your whites.
#1 is the right washer. I NEVER knew how clean my clothes could come out till the past year and a half I finally bought front loader. And let me tell you was I ever surprised at how clean and soft they were, LIKE NEW! Those old top loaders,even the new ones are no comparison to the front loading systems. BUT expensive if you have to go out and buy a new one BUT also a GOOD excuse to tell hubby you need a new one...LOL
#2 Always use liquid detergents, they seem to wash and rinse out so much better than any powder
#3 A HUGE helping hand I discovered some 30 years back that I STILL have not found that can be beat is "BIZ" bleach. It's miraculous! It's a great pre-treater to soak badly needed whites in and helps to retain bright colors if used in non-white laundry. Actually I even use it in a powder form. AFter loading all my clothes in m y front loader I scoop out a cup and actually scatter it OVER my laundry. Then add the liquid detergent (Tide or the like, I get mine at Costco or Sam's club depending on what region you live in) and wash like normal.
#4 Last but not least, for whites and ALL colors I have found nothing better than DAWN dish washing liquid. Immediately pre-treat ANY stain no matter the size with Dawn and just fold it over and toss it in the laundry. Best if washed within the same week at the latest.
GOOD LUCK to all you Domestic Goddesses! ;-)~

Spots on clothes


By spots I'm guessing that this is a permanent mark on the cloth. If that's the case, you are possibly putting concentrated liquid bleach into the machine...it is being added and causing the spots. Solution is to dilute the bleach or other concentrated cleaner. If you're adding it manually through a hopper...add it later in the cycle.

If the spots are black...you may have a bearing leak into the machine. Repair is a big job.

Allergic to detergent for front loaders


I have always used regular Tide powder in mine and my kids use Tide liquid in it. You just need to use about half as much. My man is a motor head so he gets DIRTY and I have three teens so I wash a lot of very dirty clothes. My clothes get very clean and I have never purchased the "special" Detergent.

I have had my Duet for three years.
