Help! My front loading washer is leaving stains on my laundry. I have cleaned the drum and the rubber around the washer but I kept getting random stains on my clothing. Can someone tell me what to do?

    My washer does the same thing! Only it is a LG frontloader and it leaves bleach spots on my clothes!!! I hid the bleach because I thought maybe the kids were using it... Its been out of sight for 3 months and I just bought new sage towels and they all have nice bleach spots all over them. What could be causing that?

    I have the same problem with strange stains appearing on my clothes. I have even cleaned the washer several times, and I am still having this problem. I have an LG front load washer that is less than 1 year old.

    I do have the same problem. Clothes come out of the wash with what appears to be bleach stains. Brand new front loading Whirlpool Duet. They are not rust stains. What can I do?

Are stains a brown rusty color? If so, this may be an indication that the rear drum bearing is going bad. The bearing itself cannot be replaced. You will need to replace the entire back shell of the wash tub. Hope you have a warranty. This can be an expensive repair. Let me know if this is the case.

Random brown stains in random loads of laundry


Hi from Australia

Ok the problem with your washing machine is that there is grease and oil stuck in the machine and the oil will dribble out when you run the machine on a different cycle if you rince with cold water then the oil stays in there and the hot water lets a little bit out as it is stuck in the pipes of your machine ok the first thing is run an empty load on full hot water even the rince cycle with 1 cup of bleach nothing else let that go through the long cycle then do the same again with 1 cup of white vinger and 1/2 cup citric acid which you should be able to get over there or baking soda try that it will clean your machine and your pipes it is great way to keep it all clean by the time you have done this you should not have any brown stains
Have a great weekend

Dirt is accumulating between drum and rubber seal and leaves stains on the clothes.


Clean the door boot with a 50/50 solution of bleach and water with a rag. This should be done regularly. It will help keep the mildew off boot as well.

Brown streaks


Remove the water supply hoses and check the small screens inside the ports on the water inlet valve. Make sure they are clear of rust and debris. A common problem is the screens getting rusty and putting the iron oxide into the wash water causing brown stains or streaks to get on clothing and sometimes leaving a brown ring around the tub. I will attach a photo for reference. Sorry for your trouble and I hope this helped. Best wishes.

WATER IS COLLECTING AND STAYING IN THE GASGET AND HAS AN ODOR, HELP, Please


Betty, this is problematic of all front loading washers. I have some helpful suggestions, which have helped us with our own front loading washer.

First, whenever you're done doing a load of laundry, don't close the door all the way shut. Leave it open a couple of inches for a day to let it air dry out, which will prevent the nasty smelling odor you're getting.

I also take a small rag/washcloth to wipe out the door seal/gasket after we're done washing, that way, there's less water to contribute to foul odors, etc.

The other thing we discovered is to make our last load of wash the hot water wash, whenever we're doing whites, or the stain cycle. This helps get rid of any gunk that might hang around between wash days.

Now we don't always have a hot water wash everytime we do laundry, but by just wiping out the gasket and leaving the door open, we eliminated the odor issues completely.

Frankly, the gasket shouldn't have to be wiped out when you're done washing, but that's a design issue that we've overcome with a simple washcloth. So just do these simple steps and you'll save yourself some frustration.

We really like how clean our laundry gets with the front load washer and how little water is needed to do a load, so we've decided it's worth taking the time to wipe the gasket once we're done for the day, and to leave the door open to prevent any nasty odors.

Hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

Clothes come out with stains on them


I had a similar problem with my Kenmore front loader. Turned out that the rubber lining around the door was trapping dirty, soapy water causing a nasty residue to collect. That residue got onto the clothes. I cleaned the rubber liner and now keep the washer door open between uses. I still occasionally wipe down the rubber liner with a wet rag. Problem seems to have been solved.

Washing Machine smell


The problem comes from the design of the front load washers. There is always a little water left in the tub after the machine is used. Running a bleach load will deal with the mildew until the machine is used again. I leave the door open when I am not using my washer, and this does help.

Ruining cloths, leaves black stain.


Black stains could only come from rubber part that is deteriorating. Need to check all hoses, rubber boot and at bearing seal.

Stains on clothing


Usually black oily stains are a symptom of a rear main drum bearing starting to go bad. The seal goes bad first and the packing grease will start to weep out as water gets into the bearings. Is the washer starting to get loud during any spin cycle? If so, I think your bearing is starting to go. It's not a cheap fix, either. The whole back shell of the outer wash tub has to be replaced because the bearings are molded into the plastic. I hope this is helpful in some way.
