Whirlpool bleach dispenser not dispensing properly


It sounds like the bleach dispenser is clogged or has a crack in it. What we do, is when we bleach our clothes and I know that this is extra work, but we wait until the washing machine is full of water, then add the bleach directly to the wash.

Clothes picking up residual dyes & bleach spots


I dont think the washing machine is designed to put bleach in??
Remember a washing machine is never really empty of water.
It holds about 1 litre of water in the tub after each cycle.
Thats the way they are designed.
The same as front loader.
I would put clothing in the tub to bleach,then rinse them in the tub with cold water ,then wash them?? cheers

DARK CLOTHES END UP WITH BLEACH DOT STAINS


Hello sa-kap,

yYu said,

Hi, I have a top loading Kenmore Elite washer (don't know model #) from the year 2002. It has the automatic bleach dispenser. The problem is that if someone has washed clothes with bleach sometime during the day and someone else comes along and washes dark clothes, the clothes get ruined with dot bleach stains. It appears that the bleach remains in the washer. Any tips or do I need to buy a new washer? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you
V.C.My problem is similar to that which VCasabona is having. Not just dots occur but often big splotches. It may not even be just a colored load following whites on the same day but, on occasion, it occurs on the next laundry day, a week later with the first load that is not the whites with bleach. Also, my wife adds the bleach to the filled washer (old school, I guess), rather than pouring into the dispenser. My water pressure, which is not at issue, is not what I need to address to remedy the situation. I have noted that the ledge that is part of the floating tub had some build-up of deposits, some of which may have been bleach. These I've reached in with damp cloths and removed as best I can. I've run full, empty loads through hoping this would flush out any lingering bleach. Because the occurrences run intermittently from infrequently to frequently I cannot be sure if any of my attempts to remedy the problem are having any effect. I've guessed at the model # of the Kenmore top load washer we own since Dec of 1999


Sounds like some water is remaining in the tub after the pump gets done emptying the washer.
So its the pump!
The Kenmore Elite is a good washer and I believe worth fixing!
Unless the cost is half the price of the cost of a replacement.

Bless You,

Rust stains and bleach spots.


I'm sorry but the white spots will be due to bleach. It may be that there was undissolved bleach in the washer after the first load. Maybe some of it came out with the whites and lay in wait in the basket.

I doubt the makers would guarantee anything for 7 years, so no free basket or installation is likely. Seems there is a chip in the enamel and dampness / water from the previous wash days before sits there collecting iron as rust particles.

For the time being you could try rinsing the machine out before the first load. That might prevent the rust marks or reduce them.

DARK CLOTHES END UP WITH BLEACH DOT STAINS


SOME BLEACH DISPENSERS USE COLD WATER TO FLUSH THE BLEACH FROM THE CUP. CHECK THE COLD WATER FOR GOOD PRESSURE. IF THERE ISN'T GOOD PRESSURE, REMOVE THE COLD WATER HOSE FROM THE MACHINE AND CHECK THE SCREEN INSIDE THE VALVE WHERE YOU REMOVED THE HOSE. PUT THE END OF THE HOSE IN THE TUB AND TURN IT ON. CHECK FOR GOOD PRESSURE. CLEAN THE SCREEN AND RECHECK THE WATER PRESSURE AFTER REINSTALLING THE HOSE AND TURNING ON THE WATER. IF YOU STIL HAVE POOR PRESSURE REPLACE THE VALVE.

Liquid Bleach dispenser doesn't work correctly


This may not be relevant, but by design, bleach does NOT dispense in the Buly/Bedding, Kids Wear, and Silk/Ultra Delicate cycles. If you try to use it, it remains in the dispenser.

As for the yucky smell, leave the door open when not in use.

Automatic bleach dispenser


Using too much detergent could cause a baring effect that looks like it has been bleached.
