SOURCE: Leaves white marks on coloured clothes

I'd try putting the machine on a hot fill wash, max water level put in half a cup of baking soda when the machine starts to washer turn it off and leave it to soak overnight, then let it finish the cycle the next day. Also make sure you tip some of the hot water down the beach dispenser and clean all around the top of the machine

Cheers

SOURCE: my clothes is wrinkles by my front loader washer

The previous poster was right, the spin speeds on front loaders are incredible. You almost don't have to dry! This is most noticable with heavier clothes, like jeans, especially new ones! This will help a lot: When you take your clothes out of the washer, pop, shake or fluff the wrinkled garment pretty good before you toss it in the dryer. Using a dryer softener sheet will lessen the effect as well. You can also select a lower spin speed, and make up the moisture difference in the dryer. Try shaking the clothes first as this is less expensive than operating the dryer, then back off of the spin speeds as your pocketbook allows!

Hello harnweys. Definitely switch to another brand of HE detergent, and always choose a liquid as opposed to a powder. Finally, be careful not to overload your machine, set the water level to a higher setting too! Joe

SOURCE: When washing dark clothes in the Cabrio washer I

We have the same problem with our BRAND NEW Cabrio - and those white dusty spots with our old washer were a major reason for getting a new washer. Very disappointing. I believe the white dust is also on light clothing but we can't see it.

Since most of the "answers" are obviusly wrong (we already use liquid detergent, already use the auto dispenser, and nothing is blocked because ti's BREAND NEW), we've taken to wiping down the washer basket before we run our clothes. It seems wasteful to run Afresh every week before we do laundry. But wiping out the drum with a cloth works.

I have a Kenmore series 600 washer which leaves white residue on laundry. I've tried using less detergent (only use liquid detergent) but it still happens. Using Tide detergent.


There are a lot of causes for that issue. Overloading, too much softener, bad drain pump, dirty drum, hard water are some of the more common ones.

A white stain or powdery residue remains after washing dark colors


This often occurs as a result of overloading the washer. If a washer is overloaded the water cant get in between all of the clothes to thoroughly rinse them out. That will cause streaks of white (which is most likely the unrinsed detergent).
Also, make sure you are using the correct water level setting for the load size.
If a washer is overloaded continuously it will cause premature parts failure.
Other cuases can be related to water hardness and the type of detergent you are using.
Try using a detergent with smaller granules or even a liquid detergent.
Make sure you are not using to much detergent for the load.
One other thing, turn the water off to the washer, remove the hoses from the back of the washer and check the screens that they are not corroded, if they are replace them. You can get these at Ace hardware, lowes and maybe even wal-mart. Corroded screen will impede water flow hense not allowing a good water flow during rinse cycle.

My washing machine is leaving little residue on all my clothes after a complete wash, What are they? and how do you get rid of it, the washing machine is not yet a year old


Describe the residue. If it's oily (black, dk green) then the seal is out of the tranny and oil is getting into the tub. Dry cleaning is best for oil based stains. Liquid dish detergent is good also. On white it is tough to remove. Your washer will need a new transmission or replacing.

If it is powdery I'd guess a soap buildup, especially if you've recently changed detergents. The new detergent is breaking up the old soap scum in the outer drum and it is redepositing onto your clothes. This should wash out/off.
Tip: If it's a soap residue, fill washer full without clothes with hot water. Add 1 gallon white vinegar and more hot water until the unit if as full as possible. Agitate 15 minutes and drain. Rinse with a full level and drain.

Usage of HE detergents


The best he soap I have seen yet is all, he is high effieciency low suds soap. The rule of thumb for liquid he soap is 2 Tbl for every 1 Tbl of softener. Powder can be used but is not good on pumps and build up in tubs. If you have a water softener you can use 25% less soap. Still with powder you need about a 1/4 cup per load to equal a 2 Tbl liquid variety. Suds damage pump impellers, seals and hoses from expansion and that is it on the reason "why to use he".

Usage of HE detergents


ONLY USE HE DETERGENT, The repairman just left my house today, 24 August 2009, my washer had water spewing from the detergent tray, and soaked my floors:PROBLEM, my hoses were filled with NON-HE detergent, the repairman was really nice and told me that it could have automatically voided my warranty, but he wrote it up "differently" and smacked my hand. He showed me the hose and if was just clogged terribly, he ran the spin and rinse cyle and I thought the suds would never go away, but they finally did.

HE ALL THE WAY from now on
