Marks on white clothes

As of late i have been noticing dirty greyish black marks left on some of my white clothes after they have been washed, that weren't there before i washed them. Could this have been caused by the machine itself, or do you think something else is causing it?

    I had this same problem with my 2 different front load washers. After I stopped using liquid fabric softener in the washer's softener compartment, I haven't had one more dirty streak. I'm not sure why, but it works. So, I only use dryer sheets now.

    We have the same problem. Draining the water heater did not help, and the black spots and shaded areas do not wash out.

    Hotpoint Ultima WMUD 962 (less than a year old) leaves black marks clothes, only noticeable on whites. We done a 90o wash and built in cleaning programme.

There all wrong its caused by excess fabric softener i know it doesn't make sense that a white powder used for softening clothes makes black grease looking stuff but i can guarantee if you use fabric softener that is the cause the comment with the same problem above has it rite discontinue use of the softener and your problem should be solved

You have mold. If you notice, the door seal collects water which never drains and grows black mold. Other people report mold in other locations, like the soap drawer. See epinions. (You can see it in the bottom of the door "sill". Pull back the overlapping seal from the gap to catch an eyeful.) My solution is to put dump some lemon juice where the water collects to keep the mold down. But I've only had it a few months.

As nikos suggests, black sounds a bit dire. Still, it can't do any harm to run the machine empty on as long and hot a cycle as you can find in case it's just detergent residue. A

LG fuzzy logic top loader leaves black marks on white. Happens when doing a large wash-eg; blanket -it looks awful. I'm thinking the insides might need cleaning? How is this done and with what product


If this is moldy looking you should use 1 cup of bleach in the drum with no clothes on the longest wash cycle with the hottest water. But I believe this is oil from the drive train and the seals on the bottom of the drum are going bad. When you wash something heavy like the blanket, it leaks.

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.

Black marks on clothes after washing


Try running a few caps of CLR in the washer (without clothes, of course!) Then run a few cycles with no additives. I've heard that powdered lemonade works also. Might be safer to try first. Good Luck!
