My Tromm washer is leaving residue on my clothes


Make sure you are using the correct soap. (Front load soap powder) Also use a bit less than suggested on the packet. If you are often using cold or low temp wash cycles, dirt and build-up in the machine will be common and come off on your clothes. Use a very hot wash at least once a month to clean it out and stop using fabric softener. It sticks to everything and any dirt in the water gets stuck on and then comes off in later wash cycles.

My GE washer is leaving a brown oily residue inside the drum after washes.


I amj thinking that you use soap powder in your washing machine. If that is the case what you are expericing is the accumulated powder residue under the agitator breaking away and marking the clothes. Re move the agitator and clead all the gunk out of the machine including a water recycling(saver ) hoses. Washing powder is 90% clay that is used to carry the active ingredaient and is never completely flushed in the rinse cycle. Ity also cause a deteriation of the hoses and pumpseal. When you have cleaned out the machine I recommend you only use liquid detergents as they are more effective and don't leave the residue.

I think that the problem is that these washers use too little water for rincing. Concentrated detergent residues are drying-up, solidifying on internal surfaces, including exhaust tube, and smell like...


I've got a Maytag with a similar issue.. Try this: Take a 1/2 cup of automatic dishwasher soap powder (Such as Cascade) and toss it into your washing machine without any clothes in it.
Run a whites, hot water cycle with an extra rinse to see if this will break down some of the buildup and remove the smell. You may want to run a second cycle without adding soap to clear the drain lines.

Soap-not residue-still on clothes


Wow that's a strange one.
Are you pouring the soap into the tub onto the clothes or using a soap dispenser? If using a dispenser, it may be malfunctioning, try pouring soap directly into the tub under the waterfall while it is filling.
When the machine is agitating are the clothes on top being drawn under the water? Usually this occurs as a rolling motion from the edge of the tub towards the agitator. If the top layer of clothes have an air bubble trapped in them they may not be submerging into the water. Any soap on top may not be dissolved.
Finally, if you are pouring soap into the tub, make sure you are not spilling any onto the inside of the lid or in the softener dispenser. It could get trapped in the lip around the edge of the lid and be spilling onto the clothes when you open the lid at the end of the cycle.
Do you have the same problem if you use powder soap?

I have a residual mildew odor from my washing machine??


That's normally from undissolved soaps still in the system. Age old problem. Need to do a hot wash without clothe or soap at least once a day for about 4 days. Smell should lessen. Suggest you use a lot less soap during each wash as it is very concentrated.

My maytag washer is throwing off a musty stentch. What should I do about this? It is stinking up my laundry room and the entrance to my condo.


There is a soap buildup underneath your agitator. Look for a screw on the outside of your agitator just above the lower large part with the agitatotr blades. Memory is fading but it is either a 5/16 or 1/4 ince socket that will be required to remove the screw. Once the screw is removed simply lift the agitator out then begin cleaning the tub with PLASTIC bladed putty knife. As for the agitator use something like Mr Muscle or Eliminate to clean the botttom and inside of the agitator itself. (any product that will remove soap or calcium buildup) \You can also use those same products to clean what is still on the top face of the inside bottom of your wash tub. Once you finish cleaning simply align the splines on the agitator and re-install the screw. You will NOT damage your machine running it empty. Make sure you run at least a full rinse cycle before washing clothes again as there will be some residue that will need to be washed out of your machine. Once you install the agitator push the tub stiffly in 90 deg quadrants and look at the top of your wash tub cover. Soap build up in that area can also result in an odor. The is something you can do yourself. Good Luck.

Suds residue left on clothes just washed


ck drain hose end of drain hose should be at least 36 ins from floor also be sure drain hose fits loosely in drain water may be siphoning out resulting low water level to wash/rinse ..also recommend using liquid detergent dry doesn't dissolve good in cold water and even though it may be recommended for front load the lower water levels used may not be enough to dissolve it properly

Lint or soap residue


Sounds more like a build-up of particles that may very well be in the water supply. There is something that you can try to get rid of these particles.

1. With the machine empty start it in normal eash mode and let it fill. Add 1/2 cup bleach to the water and let the machine run completely through the wash cycle. This will help remove any unseen stains or build-up.

2. When the machine drains and begins to refill on the next cycle, add 1/2-1 cup of white vinegar and again, let the machine finish its' cycle.

3. Run the machine through the wash cycle one more time to remove any vinegar that may have been left behind.

This is not a guaranteed method but I have had some success.
