Washer leaves spots on clothing

A few months ago, my husband and I noticed dark spots on our clothing after laundering. We think it's fabric softener. The spots wash right out. Any ideas?

It most likely is fabric softener. You need to clean dispenser with hot water, if this has one. In real cold water the softener won't disolve properly and will cause this to happen.

I purchased the Kenmore Elite washer approximately five years ago. I have had no problems with it operating. However, since purchasing this washer I have ruined almost everything white I owned and avoid...


There has been many reports of complaints regarding this problem and it was found out that the gray spots on white clothing are caused by the fabric softener. The Kenmore Elite is a "highly efficient" machine that it uses very minimal amount water when washing and rinsing. The minimal use of water results in the fabric softener not being diluted completely and eventually makes gray spots on white clothing. The ridiculous solution to this problem, as Sears "advised" is not using fabric softener for white clothing. But you may also try putting the fabric softener in a small plastic bowl just enough to hold it and place it inside the machine prior to the final rinse. Using only the suggested amount of detergent and avoiding the use of detergent powder with speckles reduces the possibility spot occurrences in your while clothing.

Hi, I have kenmore washer and after washing my clothes getting some white stains on them. How to solve this problem?


If you are using a liquid fabric softener , then start using dryer sheets instead OR using less softener . Also be sure you are using the correct temp setting for softener " disolvement " . Re-washing the clothes should take out the spots . If you have dryed the clothes , may take several washes to remove the spots .

Washer is leaving dirty spots on clothes


If you use fabric softener it may be from the softener. Dilute your softener 50% before pouring it in.

Greasy looking spots on clothing after washing/drying.


Without seeing the spots, this is a bit speculative, but here goes,......
I'm guessing that the spots are only found on the front side, primarily of shirts, or blouses, etc. These are from grease splatters from cooking, which many times only show up after washing and drying.
The soap releases some dirt, which is attracted to the non-removed grease spot, allowing it to show up. Re-wash the clothing, pre-spotting those areas with a citrus pre-spotter.

My front loading LG washing machine doesn't seem to wash as well as I had expected. Actually the only things that I have noticed this in is the wash cloths and towels. They are getting a gray dingy look to...


Once the dingy look gets into them, it seems to be impossible to get out. It is caused by using too much soap and / or fabric softener. Remember, your front load LG is using only about 12 gallons of water to wash those towels. Your old machine used as much as 45. This means that all wash loads need to use less soaps and fabric softeners. Use 1 tablespoon of regular HE detergent for standard loads. (only a teaspoon if it is 3X HE) Only a teaspoon of fabric softener when you use it. Which brings me to towels. If washing bathtowels: You are clean and rinsed before you use the towel. The towel is not getting dirty, only soaking up the clean water off your body. Hang them on a towel rack and use them several times before washing, and when you do wash bath towels, most of the time you do not need any detergent, as they are really not dirty. Of course you should know that you never use fabric softener on loads of towels. Now, back to the dingyness. The dingy stuff is residual soap / fabric softener in the fabric, which once machine dried seems to be impossible to remove. If they are white towels, make sure to use liquid bleach and you might try to use a little Mrs. Stewart's concentrated liquid blueing in the fabric softener dispenser to see if if might help. Most likely you will have to try a few new towels, washing with no soap or fabric softener when laundered.
Please don't rate this, as it is really just informational, not what most people would call a solution, and any rating other than FixYa drops my score.

Note: If you wash some previously washed towel, using no soap, you should not see any soap suds in the washer. If you do, you are seeing soap left over from the previous washing of the towels or soap from build up on the outer washer tub. Use Whirlaway or AhFresh on tub clean cycle or at least the longest hottest cycle you have, and start using the correct amount of laundry additives. (also will help prevent odor issues)

Stains


Apparently the residue is fatty buildup from fabric softener. Try filling it up with the warmest water possible and add some bicarb to dissolve it, then rinse a few times to get it out of the machine completely. Then use vinegar instead of softener for most washes, or dilute fabric softener with water 1:4 and occasionally rinse with bicarb. This works for me.

possibility is that the bearing seal is breaking down and oil from the bearings reaching the clothes. if so, the bearings will shortly follow. not an easy job and you are faced with a bill if i'm right
