Re: Experiencing a lot of dirt still on clothes
Check to make sure your agitator is working. The agitator comes in 2 sections, a top (#3) and a bottom (#4). Spin the top section clockwise and than the opposite direction. It should spin free from the bottom section in one direction but when turned the opposite direction it should spin the bottom with it. Hopefully that makes sense. If it doesnt, you need to replace the agitator dogs (#10). Very simple to do. the part # is 80040 and theyre about 8.00. Hope that helps. Let me know if you need help with the install or the par itself. dave www.washermd.com

times when we cook in the kitchen, we get splattered with oils that
aren't easily visible. Very often these oil spots pick up dirt from the
wash water. These stains don't usually get noticed until after the
clothes have been dried. The best thing to do is to rub detergent or
stain remover right on these spots and let them sit about half an hour.
Then rewash the clothes in as hot water as the material can take
HI! I just posted a question to "justask.com" and am having the exact same problem. I paid $9 for this answer and was happy to pay it because I now know what it is! From what I have been told, it is from the transmission in your washer and will cost at least $400 to fix it (that's just a ballpark figure... I have a Frigidaire and that was the figure I was given). So, basically, it would be more cost effective for you to purchase a new washer.
You said these particles stick to the clothes, do they come off and then leave a stain? It may be grease or oil coming from a leaking drum bearing seal. If it is, This is a major repair and not one for DIY.
liquid detergent is a pain and not as good as powder. liquid detergent often makes machine smell as well
i doubt there is a fault with the machine. try putting on a boil wash with no clothes and this will clear out the slime left behind by the liquid detergent.
you didn't say what colour the stains are but iy grey or brown it could be from your water supply - a more common problem than you might think.
turn off water and remove the supply hose. there should be a gauze filter at one end and make sure not clogged with dirt. also look into the spigot of the vavle and see if any muck there.
Problem will be the use of fabric softner or too much detergent. The stain you are seeing is generally to animal fat that is present in fabric softner, Best solution is to cut back on the amount of softner being used, same with powder.
