Question about Washing Machines

1 Answer

I am getting dark brown lines/marks on my linen & clothing. Something similar happend with an F& P machine I had many years ago and back then I was told it was called Scrunge. I was given a recipe to clean my machine - Smart Drive top loading 7.5 about 12 years old (Long ago lost). Have tried a hot wash. Is there something I can do?

Check and make sure the seal at the bottom of the washer is not wore out. Alot of times you will get grease from the bearins and drum assembly if this wears out.

SOURCE: Brown, rust-like marks on washing

Hello I got a Bosch ClassXX5 and got the same problem, white clothes seemed Grey and some clothes seemed washed but not perfectly, until I discovered that the washing machine did not heat water anymore; after the end of the wash cycle the clothes were cold as the program was initially setup to 40C°.....

I used to think soaps were not up to the task and changed brand often, sadly a Bosch product letting me down was not on my mind, since that brand for me was above the rest, quality, strong, during in the time, having electric tools from Bosch without any problem for years!

SOURCE: Leaves white marks on coloured clothes

I'd try putting the machine on a hot fill wash, max water level put in half a cup of baking soda when the machine starts to washer turn it off and leave it to soak overnight, then let it finish the cycle the next day. Also make sure you tip some of the hot water down the beach dispenser and clean all around the top of the machine

Cheers

SOURCE: White streaks on dark clothes after washing.

Reduce the load !!

You are getting white streaks because the clothes are so compressed the machine is not agitating them correctly.

My daughter gets the same problem and she still insists on packing the clothes in.

My wife washes the same clothes for her with the right load and they come out fine

fill the tub with only water! use pinesol and bleach! half a gallon of each run through wash cycle 3 times before ever letting it spin out! then complete all cycles that should do it! if not them you need to remove and clean under tub and re install

Brown marks left on clothing.


You probably have significant lint buildup inside the machine. The lint gets burned by the heater and causes the dark marks on the clothes.

This could indicate a fire hazard!!

The solution is to disassemble the machine and remove all lint residue inside, especially in the heater area.

My washer leaves black marks on my clothes. I do not use fabric softners


Do you mean Black, really black marks? Perhaps dark brown.

Some marks comes from moldy seals, other marks comes from leaking gears from the machine. Examine the marks, check if those marks are oily or not.

Kenmore 417.80042990 (10 year old) dryer makes a squeak as it tumbles the clothes dry. Seems to be worse as the clothes get dryer. FYI-the felt was replaced about 4 years ago, not sure it's that. But...


this is a frigidaire made dryer with kenmores name on it. The drum bearing needs more grease. You really need to know what your doing before you take that job on yourself. Its easy for me...but I have been doing it for 20 years and thats the way I role

Rust marks left on laundry


This is a weird one, the marks have got to be coming from somewhere, if you are still under your first year of owning it go back to the shop where you purchased it, Its been a while since i looked into this but i think you may still be covered under the sale of goods act or something similar.
if you are now outwith the year keep on calling the engineer out, if you call them out within a month of each visit it counts as a recall and not a seporate visit, after a few recalls they will take notice, alternativley ask for a team leader/ supervisor to visit not an engineer. the best thing to clean out a machine is a boil wash with an old towel and some poweder (the 90 degree wash will bring out the bleach in the poweder and clean the machine internally)

My Washing machine stains clothes; they come out with brown rusty stains. Otherwise the washing machine works fine. my washing machine is lessthen three years old and always give brown stains in white...


I had the same problem, and it turns out that it is NOT the seal. It is the liquid fabric softener. The fabric softener dispenser needs to be cleaned periodically or it gets a black waxy, goopy, build up. It is this same buildup that ends up staining your clothes with dark brown or black stains. Just remove the dispenser and wash it our very well and the problem will be gone.

Soap residue on clothes from washing machine


I have the same problem. Can't get soap out my clothes. I have a Sears Kenmore frontload washer. It seems to work fine but something isn't right. Repair man came few days ago & said NOT to use the brands they say "For ALL HE Washers" ALL being the key word. Only use the ones that only say HE. I changed back to Gain instead of Sam's brand, but I still can't get soap out. I really don't think its the detergent. I washed my daughters towels & had soap in clothes after complete full wash was done. I'm lost & have no idea what the problem is or how long its being going on before I noticed.

those "burn" marks if they have an arking shape to them are smudges from the felt that goes on the drum support above and bellow the door inside the drier. the felts wear out every five to seven years or so. easy repair. send me a model number and i could go into more detail. part numbers ect.

Front loader washing machine = black streaks on clothing


I am a recently retired engineer of 20 years once you have ruled out anything getting inside the machine by accident etc, like something in pockets or greasy overalls, then its likely to be the drum bearings, has the machine started to get noisy on the spin the drum bearings are covered by a rubber seal, this seal gets damaged or worn and water leaks into the bearings themselves washing out the grease back into the drum where the washing is, you could also notice slight water marks on the floor underneath the machine on the floor, take the back off and look for water marks coming from the drum outer casing behind the pulley, these marks will be brown and will originate from a small drain hole, if any of the above change the bearings before any real damage is done, either to the clothes or the machine, as repair can be expensive? sorry, hope i have helped you as to where to look at least,
