Question about Fisher and Paykel Washing Machines

1 Answer

Dirty washing Hi We are increasingly finding bits of brown sort of mouldy flakes in our washing - as well as left over fluff - on our clothing. We have pulled the machine apart and cleaned it - but the problem remains. Any ideas?? Thanks Claire

Streaky dirty washing


try running some cleaner through the machine on a hot 60-90 degree wash cycle with no clothes in. It may take a few goes to remove the build up of soapscum from the inner drum of the appliance

My clothes are coming out dirty with lint build up from the washing machine- kelvinator smart drive 053, have undone and cleaned centre- is there a trap underneath anywhere that may be full or blocked?


9 WASH PERFORMANCE INFORMATION
9.1 Creasing
Creasing can be caused by over loading the washer or the dryer. Permanent Press or Delicate
cycles have been designed to minimise creasing as they use a lower spin speed. Do not leave wet clothes to sit in the washer or laundry basket.
9.2 Soiling
Soiling is the result of insufficient detergent for the load. White clothes are better washed
separately. Separate lightly and heavily soiled items, as clothes can pick up soil from dirty wash water. Cold water below 68oF / 20 oC does not wash effectively. Select the wash temperature according to soil type. For example, blood and mud are better washed in cold water, while sweat and oil based soil wash better in warmer water. Loads made up of articles of varying sizes will wash better (e.g. full loads of sheets may not wash that well). Hard water requires more detergent than soft water.
9.3 Linting
Wash lint givers (eg. towels, flannelette sheets) separately from lint collectors (eg. synthetic
fabrics). Over loading the washer can increase the likelihood of linting. Insufficient detergent for the load can increase linting as there will not be enough detergent to hold the lint in suspension. Over drying synthetic fabrics in a dryer can cause a build-up of static electricity and result in the fabrics attracting lint.
9.4 Detergent Residue
Over loading the washer can result in detergent residue being caught in the creases of the fabrics.
If this occurs, decrease the load size. Some detergents need to be pre-dissolved. Check the instructions for the detergent. Cold ambient temperatures, cold washes or short agitation times may not let the detergent dissolve properly. In these cases pre-dissolve the detergent. Overdosing of detergent can also cause residue when foam breaks down and will show as white specs on the clothing. Poor quality detergents can result in residue.
9.5 Black Marks on Clothes
A build up caused by the interaction of fabric softener and detergent (scrud) can flake off and mark
clothes. Do not use too much fabric softener, maximum 75cc. If this is a problem, it is recommended that the machine is periodically filled with hot water, plus 1-2 cups of dishwasher powder and left to soak.
9.6 Grey Marks on Clothes
Not enough detergent for the amount of soil on the clothes can result in grey marks on clothes. If
this is a problem it is recommended that the machine be periodically filled with hot water, plus detergent and left to soak.
9.7 Dye Transfer
Wash and dry non-colorfast clothes separately. Non colorfast clothes left sitting in a washer or
laundry basket can transfer dye to other clothes.
9.8 Tangling
Washing with too much water (i.e. under loading) can cause the clothes to tangle around each
other. Do not load the machine by wrapping clothes around the agitator.

Hi. I have a Kenmore Elite top-loading washer and in every wash load there are flakes of brown stuff, not rust but more like leaves. There does not seem to be anything wrong with the outflow. Thanks!


Run a few washes of rags or towels with plenty of BLEACH & VINEGAR (two quarts of white) a couple of times to remove most bacterial debris from your machine. There is no part of the machine that "creates" brown flakes, so it is either in the water inflow (check the water) and the way to see what is coming into the machine is to do a "load" without any clothes! Just have the tub fill and look at what fills.....Sounds like something under the tubs upper lip that's coming-off and into your tub during the wash and agitation cycles.

Hotpoint Aquarius WF740 My washing is coming out with dirty marks and bits of slimy dirt. I wonder if it is from the door seal as this is dirty or could it be something else? I used the persil gel filled...


Your pipe to the water pump exit is probably blocked with bits of old fluff or missing sock, i found that the clothes had slimy bits on mine, i tilted it up and removed the rubber water exit pipe from under neath, cleaned out all the rubbish and works a treat now.
