Hi!

You can look at this as to how lint/whitening from your clothes can be removed---

This is due to un-dissolved soap and is worst in a colder climate where the cold water entering the washer is much colder than normal.

Cutting usage to 1/2 of what it says will still wash good and also cut your chances of getting "whiting" on your clothes.

Over loading the washer is another cause: Even if the agitator is suppose to go back and forth, the clothes are not. If you can hold the lid button on your washer so you can watch the clothes wash, they should 'roll" in the basket and not go back and forth like the agitator. The clothes will go down the side of the agitator, across the bottom of the basket, up the side of the basket and across the top of the water in a rolling motion. Overloading is not just too many clothes but also too little water for the size of the load is another way of having a overloaded wash load.

Water temp is also important: Use a thermometer to test the temp of the incoming water in your washer. Hot water should be close to 140 degrees F.

    Most washing machines collect lint during the wash cycle and send it down the drain during the drain cycle.
    You can collect lint in the center tube of the agitator. You need to lift out that tube and clean it periodically. Some machines have a lint filter near the top of the tub, which you need to slide out, clean off, and reinsert.

Been dealing with a smelly washer- tried the usual, bleach, vinegar, CLR.....it doesn't seem to have a lint trap.....is there one? where might it be?? Its old but works great other than this.....


Have you tried doing an empty 90 degree wash with white powder?
It does have to be white powder rather than colour powder or any kind of liquid, becauses only white powder has bleaching agents.
Add it helps if you leave the machine empty or clothes, towels etc.

Washing machine smells are usually caused by mildew, and a 90 degree wash with bleaching agents ought to help. If you do this about once a month it should keep the machine clear of mildew.

Not spinning with clothes in it , but its fine when empty??????????????


Could be too much washing powder, excess washing powder holds water in the clothes and makes the load too heavy to spin.
Try washing a load with NO washing powder (if this is the case there will probably be enough residual powder to wash the clothes anyway).
Follow the correct amount of powder/liquid, more is not better, just wears out your machine.

After the wash has finished, i get a powder marks on all the clothes. is there only one setting that is a cold wash?


If you have to use cold try a liquid instead of powder or mix your powder with some hot water to disolve before adding (throw it in with the clothes before starting if it is too much for the dispenser).

White marks on my clothes.


Are you using TOO much powder? And is the machine set to the correct rinse tempature? You mention white stuff, does it look like undissolved washing powder? Or fabric softner? Possibly try liquid detergent and see if the problem continues. And follow the recommended amounts of detergent for each wash load, and the tempature settings. And of course the water levels. All of the above are crucial to insure you get maximum preformance and utility out of your machine, with the results you expect. Let us know what you find. Kindest Regards, Slats.

Washing machine does not wash clothes


You are possibly washing at the wrong temp, or not using sufficient powder or detergent.
The m/c is not rinsing properly, check that it is pumping o/k.
If there is a build up off slime and mould on your door seal, then you are definately washing at too low temp.
At least every 4 to 6 weeks, do a high temp wash with powder in but no clothes.
This is called a maintenance wash and helps to keep the inside parts clean..
If your door seal is stained, clean as best you can with a scourer pad or similar. You will not hurt the seal.
plz rate my solution .
Thanks.
