Grey sludge on my washing

My Zanussi 1254W seems to be throwing grey slimy sludge back over my washing. I've tried using a washing machine cleaner at high temp. and fitting an inline anti-syphon device to no avail.
Any ideas?

Hi, I had the same problem.
The waste is blocked, check the drain pipe from the machine and also where it drains out to. (thick sludge)
I ended up unclipping the pipe from the drain motor (Bottom rear) and passing a garden hose throught it to flush it out.

Machine leaking, grey tube at bottom of machine has come loose from somewhere causing it to leak. what is this for ?


grey tube is actual 'pipe' that should be attached to the pump which empties the drum.

(a) Lay washing machine on side with a couple of blankets under neath to save damage to the side.

(b) Look underneath the machine and you will see where the grey tube should be affixed. suggest if you cant find the retaining clip, purchase a
1.5" (3cm) jubilee clip and tighten around the grey tube to hold it in place.

How can I stop my washing machine from smelling and producing smal grey lumps of muck ,the seal and drum are cleaned regulaly also have tried washing machine cleaner


As with Mieles I would recommend that you run a few more hot wash cycles, the build up of gunk over the years would have accummulated - there are Gurus out there with remedies to make it smell nice, I have not tried the natural remedies yet.

The grey sludge may be due to incorrect soap powder (use only front loader) or excessive powder use. Minimise the powder use and insure you do a very hot wash once every 4 weeks to break down powder that may be building up.

Use tilex to remove the mold. Then see what happens. If the mold comes back right away it may be a problem with the rubber gasket not seating as it should. Let me know. And please rate my solution. thanks.
