Hi,
Try washing just an old dish towel on the hottest program, with 1 cup of soda crystals only.

Before starting this though, remove the detergent drawer, and clean it in hot soapy water. Spray a general surface cleaner into the drawer appature, and clean out as much as you can reach with a small cloth. Put drawer back and, put 2 tblespoons of soda crystals in the detergent section of the drawer too. Wash on hot.

These are mostly caused by a build up in the dispenser drawer.

Greasy marks on cloths; All washing machines


90% of greasy marks on cloths is due to scum build in the outer bowl of your machine...top loaders being the most vulnerable. prevention is better than cure. At least one hot wash a week on high level. If your machine is an early model one or two with a good bleach subject to manufacturers instruction...bleach is very cost effective and works well.

Clothes getting greasy marks


There is nothing that has grease on it that can leak into the dryer I would do a good inspection in the drum and clean it.

Black type residue being left on clothes



Hi there,

This is a common problem on washing machines, if you predominantly do cold washes.

Over a period of time, a washing machine will accumulate a buildup of Soap Scum (excess soap & softener residue) which can stick to the inside of the drum.

This black coloured soap scum occasionally breaks away from the drum, and attaches to the clothing fabric during the wash cycle.

You can rectify this, by doing the following:

Firstly, purchase a packet of CITRIC ACID from your local grocery store (usually found in the baking isle).

Do the following procedure before going to bed:

1) Do a HOT WASH without clothes (Hi water level, with HOT water) - allow machine to fill with hot water, then add the CITRIC ACID to the water. Allow the machine to complete a FULL wash cycle (i.e. allow machine to agitate for 30 mins or so, then drain).

2) Fill the machine again with the HOT water / CITRIC ACID solution, but this time allow it to sit in the bowl overnight (no cycle).

3) Next morning, set machine to spin & drain (i.e. to empty the solution)

4) Set machine to fill with FRESH HOT WATER ONLY (no citric acid), then set machine to spin & drain. This will flush all remaining residue left in the bowl.

Note: Soap scum residue is caused by using excess detergent/fabric softener. Hot Water flushing should be done every 6 months.

Contrary to what the detergent manufacturers state, you should follow Samsung's instructions by using HALF the recommended detergent.

Samsung machines prefer LOW SUDS, and you may find by reducing the amount of detergent used, you may even eliminate the buildup of soap scum.

How do I clean the machine?


Sounds like soap scum build-up. Try running it through a cycle with a cupful of vinegar added. Old-wives method, but I have hard-water, and it works often.
