Re: dirt patches sticking onto washing
For low water volume - or "Trickling" effect...
1. Turn off the water supply to both hoses. 2. Remove hoses (one at a time so you don't get them confused) 3. On the washer side - look for a removeable screen inside wher you just removed the hose. 4. Using a small screwdriver - pop out the screen and reverse-flush it/clean it. It will likely be full of sediment and calcium deposits from your pipes. 5. Replace the inlet screens. 6. Re-fit the hose to the machine. 7. Turn on water supply valves. 8. re-try.

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.
That sounds like you have one of them fancy water saving outfits with a diverter valve that dumps the pump water continuosly over the clothes. Weirdest washer I ever saw. Could be the solenoid that opens the drain pump has failed. Don't know too much about em but I do have the service manual. Post your model number for a more precise answer.

Is the filter screen over the drain at the bottom of the dishwasher clogged? Maybe the drain hose is kinked or clogged. If not, check the fitting where the hose connects to see if it maybe clogged. Please rate this advice. Thanks!
Your washing machine probably just has a build up of dirt in the basket. When you look inside the basket you see all those holes that are all over it. Dirt will stick inside there and after time will start coming out during washes. A simple thing that you can do to fix this is run some vinegar through the wash. Pour it in the basket, the soap, fabric softener, and bleach dispensers. Wash on hot and extra large load. Make sure no clothes are in it of course. This is something you can do every few months or so. Not only will it clean out the machine but it will clean out all the hoses and any hard water deposits. Your clothes will start smelling better and looking cleaner. Give that a try though. If your machine is 8 years old chances are this is the problem. Let me know if you have any other questions and let me know if this is helpful to you. Good luck and I am always happy to help out.
linting is caused by a few things
firstly what sort of soap poweder do you use
i recomend good quality powder
do not wash clothes too long as what you are doing is rubbing all the fibres out of them
good quality washing powder only last about 6 minets in water and after that it looses its qualiteseg
the PH changes in the water
you may be using too little soap powder and this also depends on water quality eg too hard or soft water
is the water levels set corectly
do not mix washing
eg towels with jeans as the lint will come off onto jeans
try using delicate wash on different fabric as the adgitation is different on different cycles
try using warm wash and not cold machine is probable ok but wah times are important
You said these particles stick to the clothes, do they come off and then leave a stain? It may be grease or oil coming from a leaking drum bearing seal. If it is, This is a major repair and not one for DIY.
