Well if you use dry detergent than dry using a lighter duty liquid detergent, and be sure to buy the right kind. If your machine is high efficiency the get the h.e. approved detergent.

SOURCE: Kenmore washer leaves dark streaks on light colored clothes

I suggest you first take a clean, white cloth wetted with a stronger solvent such as 'Oops,' carburator or brake cleaner (with these two, DON"T overspray, they will damage plastic and paint) and wipe the drum inside to make sure there is not some gunk adhering that is gradually depositing itself with each wash cycle.
If you have a shade-tree mechanic in the family, they may have gotten a gob of grease on clothing that transfered to the inside of your machine.
If you don't find enough on the cloth to have caused the problem, I think you have lost a seal on the drum-side of the transmission.

The white streaks are of soap build up on your machine tub. You can get ried of that by putting cascade dish washing soap in your washing machine and run full cylece , with out clothes.

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

SOURCE: my front load kenmore leaves faint dark streaks in

look carefully inside the tub, gasket, lid. There may be some debris of some sort stuck somewhere causing this problem.

Then run the machine adding only two cups of vinegar. this will clean it.

GWL10 leaving dark streaks on my cold water whites.


Hi Barla 2,Just read your posting.Now are the dark streaks like an oily substance?Is you machine leaking or has become noisier on the spin cycle?The only place this machine will get oil into the water is from the main bearings.But this is only the case if your main seal is faulty.Please reply with the additional information and I can help you rectify this problem.

Kenmore Elite calypso 21086 leaves dirt streaks on clothes


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.
