Re: dark dirty spots on some clothing items appears on...
What you are seeing is suds getting back onto the clothes. make sure you are using HE type soap and not using too much of it. if you are seeing suds inside the unit, when it is running, then it will "re-deposite" dirty soap residues back onto the clothes. you need to run a rinse and spin cycle or even a heavy duty cycle with hot water to rinse out any soap that is left in the unit. not a major problem, just use it differently and it will be ok.

Normally a washer does not cause a staining problem, but If something inside the washer has rusted, it could. I would check your water tank. Drain water from the drain cock at the bottom of the tank, and see how dirty it is. If it is dirty, you need to drain the water until it is almost clear.
times when we cook in the kitchen, we get splattered with oils that
aren't easily visible. Very often these oil spots pick up dirt from the
wash water. These stains don't usually get noticed until after the
clothes have been dried. The best thing to do is to rub detergent or
stain remover right on these spots and let them sit about half an hour.
Then rewash the clothes in as hot water as the material can take
I understand you are seeing stains and lint on your clothes once removed from your top load washer, model FWS833A. There could be several culprits causing this to happen. To confirm, are the stains not being removed during cycle or do you believe the washer is the cause of the stains? If you believe the stains are being caused from the washer it could possibly be undiluted liquid fabric softener poured directly on fabric. Something more serious could be a broken transmission causing oil to leak in the tub.
There are some basic troubleshooting tips for lint to check such as undissolved detergent can leave residue on clothing. Separate clothing items which shed lint from items which attract lint. Permanent press, synthetic, knit and corduroy items will pick up lint from towels, rugs and chenille bedspreads. Make sure to Use correct amount of detergent, water temperature and water level.
There are some simple troubleshooting tips listed above and in your owner's manual, if you find they do not resolve your concern I would recommend contacting a local authorized technician to inspect the washer.
hi. i can help. the grease is coming from one of two places. Either some item with grease on it got placed in the machine and the grease transferred to the tub where it will cause the problem until it is spotted and removed with a degreaser, or wears off.
OR the grease is coming from the washer itself. Perhaps some grease oozed out of the mechanicals related to the aggitator.
Either way I would get a strong flash light or trouble light and look carefully in the tub and around the aggitator for grease. Then remove it with a cloth and some degreaser, available at any auto parts store.
Around the white plastic rim right above the steel tub, link gets caught. I have only been able to remove it with my fingers every week or so and this seems to stop the "spotting/striping" of stains on my cloths. I would also like to know the RIGHT answer to this one. Thanks
Run the hottest & fullest cycle possible - without a load - and add a grease remover - like goo-gone. Fatty tissues build up inside the tub - and can be released on hot cycles if HOT wasn't used very often.
It is recommended to run a HOT load every 2 weeks or so to avoid these buildups and staining of clothes.

Problem Solved !!!
Ok, I had to stop and tell everyone about my latest experience.
When we moved here we bought the nice Whirlpool front load washer and dryer set.
I Love them....still don't understand how my clothes get clean with so little water, but love them. ..................That is until lately.
I was really upset about a total of 4 white blouses that looked to have some kind of light splattered stains on them after washing. I would try to wash them again with a stain remover sprayed or scrubbed on the spots, but they wouldn't come clean. I gave up and considered the blouses ruined. I told William what was happening and he called the repair man out because he thought it might be some kind of part in the machine that was leaking oil onto the clothes when they were washing.
The guy came out and told William that there wasn't anything that could go into the washer tub and get onto the clothes. He then looked around in the washer and at the little detergent dispenser drawer. He suggested that we use 1 cup of Clorox and 1/4 cup of dish washer detergent (cascade with dawn degreaser crystals) on a hot to medium water temperature and turn it on a complete wash cycle to make sure that we didn't have mold and mildew setting up in our machine.
After he left, I proceeded to do what he told us. I though.....the blouses are probably ruined anyway. I had tried to get out all the spots to no avail, so what the heck......I threw them into the mix too!
Would you believe they came out clean, very bright white (instead of yellowed or dingy from continued wear) and the washer smells as sweet as it did when it was new. Why didn't they tell me about this when I bought it ???????????
I plan on putting the detergent mix in the washer every couple of months and throwing in all the whites that I can find to take advantage of the cleaning effect on the whites. (I thought that maybe some of you had gotten stains on white clothes that you would like to get out too)
