Spotting on Towels and sheets

We have had this washer for a while, and it works well, but sometimes towels and sheets come out with white spots that look like bleach stains. We are not using bleach or liquid softener. Happens with both HE and normal Cheer and New Era. Anyone having a similar problem or can suggest a fix?

Re: Spotting on Towels and sheets

Cut down slightly on the amout ot detergent you are using.
Check the inside door window, that probably has a residue of detergent on it from a previous washing. I wipe my inner door off with a towel that is going into the wash cycle. For as long as I have been diligent in wiping off the inner door window my the spots on my clothing haven't returned.

Wash in cold water, and use fabric softener as well as dryer sheets when drying at low heat on dryer. To hot of water and to hot o drying will cause this.

My maytag neptune washer is spotting my laundry - especially light colored towels with possibly an oil spot - about the size of a dime or sometimes quarter. I tried running a cleaning disc thru it twice ,...

f you use cold water wash and rinses regularly it may have an accumulation of un-dissolved detergent, dirt/grime and body oils stuck on the inside wall of the outer tub. When washing whites I assume that you are using Hot water and it could be causing some of the accumulation to break loose in small clumps and re-depositing on the clothes.

Grease on white towels

This is from not enough HOT loads.

Fatty deposits gather between the basket and tub during COLD washes.

Then they are being released in large numbers when you do your whites on HOT.

It is recommended to do 1 HOT load per week.

Do an empty load with some degreaser added (like Goo-Gone) on the fullest/hottest setting you have.

Clean clothes that smell bad

ngafm at your service!
You may have a small amount of water or lint lift in the machine somewhere that is not completely dumping out !
This is sometimes common on front loaders! Or the pump is weak!
I tell my customers to try running the washer without clothes once a week with hot water and a 1/4 cup of bleach!
. BUT the first load you do after this must be white in case there is a drop of bleach left in the system, that it does not spot bleach a white spot on your colored clothes!

If not this does not remedy the situation you will need hands on service!

Foul smell

More then likely you're still using too much detergent and liquid softner. Front load washers use about 1/10 the water of a top load so all you need to use is about 1 tablespoon per load of soap and softner. If you use any more then that it builds up inside the tub behind the drum where you can't see it and starts to smell. Running the machine empty about once a month with just bleach will help stop the build up. If you do this and see soap suds that's left over soap coming out. If you see suds run it again and again until the water stays clear and you odor problem should be gone. You can go back to colored towels.

Streaks in towels/sheets

From experience, Bleach will stay in the machine and bleach load after load (esp with an enamel or poly drum). Normally have to run a HOT empty cycle to clean it out.
