This is from not enough HOT loads.

Fatty deposits gather between the basket and tub during COLD washes.

Then they are being released in large numbers when you do your whites on HOT.

It is recommended to do 1 HOT load per week.

Do an empty load with some degreaser added (like Goo-Gone) on the fullest/hottest setting you have.

Brown streaks on white cloths?


Hi Ralph,
It may be important to have an idea as to what caused the stain/discoloration. Carbona (http://www.carbona.com/home.php) has different products specific to the various reasons for the problem. You may be able to use bleach, depending on the fabric affected. Some white material turn yellow with bleach
Hope this helps ~ Good luck!

My HE top load Kenmore is staining all of my dress shirts. from small little spots to large massive areas. I am wondering what it is. I have ruined about 50 shirts so far. Could it be the soap?


If they were all in the same load, something must have fallen into/got mixed with the load, such as ink pen, etc. Full washer with hot water and add cleaning agent such as ammonia or plain detergent to clean the washer cycle.
To clean those shirts, add a 1/4 c of "Simply Green" / The Green Stuff ($ store brand) to temp appropriate water, directly spray on spots and let soak a few minutes, then wash (with or without detergent) and do a double rinse cycle. Naptha or Zote laundry BAR soap are good as "detergent". HTH

Sometimes I get little brown spots on my wash, like on a tee shirt or shirt. The spot will not come out on a rewash.


the main cause of this problem is a rusty object inside the machine,ie a small screw/paperclip/nail something that has come out of a pocket and is lying in the nachine,adrian,,,,,,

Rust in Kenmore washed clothes


Sounds like you have a bad drum bearing. I would guess that it's grees rather than rust although it will look like rust.

Brown stains on white clothes in front loading washer


The brown stains are likely coming from the felt drum seal. The OEM adhesive is tar based - and after time and use - breaks down.

You'll need a new felt seal - and the adhesive that is used should be silicone based... eliminating the brown streaks.

Iam getting brown spots on white shorts after washing with Kenmore front loading washing machine


If it's gunk or build up the marks should wash away. In this case run a long cycle using "affresh" or "washer fresh" with an empty load and use the hottest water available to help rinse the gunk out.

If the marks do not wash away, it could be grease due to a bearing failure. Listen for loud growling or grinding either by spinning the drum by hand or putting it into a spin cycle. If this is the case, the rear tub assembly (contains bearing) will need to be replaced. Not much can be done about the ruined clothes :(

Washing leaves spots in dress shirts


What you could possibly try, is run an empty load, to wash the washer drum clean of sediment. If the washing macine drum is stained, clean it by hand with a cleaning compund, like clorox or some other kind of cleaning solution. Another thing that you can try, is to use the dish washer cleaning solution that they sell, to clean dish washers of sediment. It comes in a small white, plastic square container and Walmart sells it.
