Why does it leave black marks on clothes?


Your problem might very well be in the WASHER, not the dryer! If pieces of mold/mildew are in the clothes from a dirty washer tub, they will be dried into the fabric during drying! I don't know what type of washer you have, but it sounds like you need to really "slam" it with some washer cleaner or bleach--If you do this, follow these directions closely--Use a washer cleaner product(there are a slew of them on the market), probably for a really gunked-up washer, you will have to use 3 boxes, once a week for 3 weeks. Set the washer on the clean-washer cycle if so equipped(otherwise set it for bulky, HOT water, heavy duty, etc--you can turn off the spin--don't need it)
Now, run the cycle on an EMPTY TUB--NO CLOTHES. LET IT COMPLETE, this was run #1, THEN, RUN THE MACHINE AGAIN, ADDING *NOTHING*, WITH NOTHING IN THE TUB, this was run#2, next, for a first real load after a cleaning, ONLY WASH YOUR WHITES, USING THE NORMAL AMOUNT OF DETERGENT), this was run #3. What you're doing is ensuring that any chlorine-containing water has been flushed out of the unit prior to putting any colored clothing in! I hope I helped you and ANYONE else who reads this--this is for ANY washer--front loader or top loader.

My Whirlpool Cabrio washer model WTW5610XW0 type 588-02 spins then stops and clothes still come out wet.


The washer is unbalanced, make sure it is level and the clothes are distributed even, if this have been check. put the unit on cold water and see how fast it comes in. Safety programmed into the unit if it takes longer then 10 minutes to fill it will just drain. This is to keep the washer from flooding out. Check the water inlet where the hose screws on, it could be plugged up with grit

Hi can you tell me which programme is the short wash and spin please


I think I have the same type of washing machine as you do. Wash is when all the clothes get agitated or mixed with soap and water (ever look in there when its washing? the water can get pretty gross looking!) So in my washer, the rinse cycle is when all that gross water is drained, and the washer spins while spraying clean water over the clothes to get rid of the dirty water and soap. I think mine does this 5 or 6 times in the cycle. Next is the spin cycle, which is when the washer spins REALLY fast to **** as much water out of the clothes as possible, so that the clothes aren't sopping wet when you put them in the dryer.

It sounds like your mom has a newer washing machine, probably a front load one, and they do seem to keep using clean water, instead of just agitating the clothes in dirty water.

Washer spins out when it feels like it!


I think you have something caught inside the pump. ie, a button, paperclip, small screw, etc.

Remove agitator cap. Remove bolt underneath. lift off upper agitator and lower. Look for grease under agitator and on splined shaft and clean. Re-assemble be sure to put plastic thrust piece in between upper and lower agitator.

Maytag Neptune 9700 series


IT SOUNDS LIKE THE OUTER BAND TO HOLD ON THE DOOR BOOT/SEAL. WHAT I HAVE SEEN IS THAT AN ARTICLE OF CLOTHES WAS NOT ALL THE WAY INTO THE WASHER AND IT WAS STARTED, PULLING THE DOOR BOOT INTO THE WASHER. THE ONLY OTHER THING I HAVE NOTICED WITH THIS NEW BREED OF SUPER CAPACITY WASHERS IS THAT THEY LIKE BIGGER LOADS TO HELP BALANCE THEMSELVES. IT MAY BE POSSIBLE THAT IT WAS SO SEVERLY OUT OF BALANCE THAT IT PULLED THE BOOT INTO THE TUB AS THE MAYTAGS OF THAT MODEL LINE WERE KNOWN TO NOT BE THE MOST SENSITIVE TO OUT OF BALANCE CONDITIONS. THERE IS A CONTROL BOARD KIT THAT COMES WITH A MOTION SENSOR NOW FOR THEM AS AN UPGRADE.

Close very wrinkled


I have the same problem with clothes being very wrinkled and clumped together after a full cycle. I believe it is not because of the spin cycle, but because the washer using very little water to wash the clothes, so they bunch up easily and are not free flowing. NOW, I try to use the cycle that uses the "Deep Clean" action or I activate it manually with all other cycles. It adds more water to the cycles and the clothes come out wrinkled, but not as much. Try it.
