Question about Whirlpool Gold Duet GHW9400P 3.8 Cu. Ft. Front-Loading Washer

1 Answer

Streaks in towels/sheets

I have problems with towels getting streaked (almost as if bleached) in my washer. I noticed that one of the most recent ones was against the window of the washer when I took it out. Sometimes sheets get streaks or blobs where the color is lighter as well. I use bleach on all white loads but never on colors. Any ideas, please? Thank you.

Re: 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.

Brown streaks on white cloths?

Hi Ralph,
It may be important to have an idea as to what caused the stain/discoloration. Carbona ( has different products specific to the various reasons for the problem. You may be able to use bleach, depending on the fabric affected. Some white material turn yellow with bleach
Hope this helps ~ Good luck!

Calypso stains load

Hi there
I wonder why "dark streaks" on white towels. I presume that you have made sure that there is no dirt flying around in the machine.
Try to let the machine go a circle -without any washing in it- just to see if the water takes color. There are also in the shops washing powder
that remove stains of different types.
Also powder for "only whites"
good luck

2002 Kenmore front load washer 42042 is leaving large black smudges 3-4 square inches each and streaks, and dot patterned stuff of the same on my clothes. This unit is stacked . Is it repairable for...

Two possibilities come to mind. Too much fabric softener, or
the black rubber door seal. Try rubbing the seal with a paper
towel to see it it smudges. Try cleaning with bleach or alcohol,
then rinse it thoroughly with water.

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.

Bleach spots with HE detergent

I have learned the hard way that after I wash a load with bleach, I have to remove the dispenser drawer and wash it out. The bleach in the compartment isn't always entirely used so when you wash another load, then it gets the remainder that wasn't flushed out.

What actually will happen over time is the stainless steel retianing hub and nut diseningrate and the tub becomes loose. Then the spin cycle will destroy the top balancing ring. When this happens - the washer is junk - not worth repairing.
Before that thou - other mechanical problems can happen, like u-joint breakage. These washers are absolute junk.

Liquid Bleach dispenser doesn't work correctly

This may not be relevant, but by design, bleach does NOT dispense in the Buly/Bedding, Kids Wear, and Silk/Ultra Delicate cycles. If you try to use it, it remains in the dispenser.

As for the yucky smell, leave the door open when not in use.
