    I always use less bleach than stated. I have removed the entire drawer and made sure there are no obstructions in the siphoning tube. I did this because on occassion there was liquid remaining in the bleach dispenser. I have checked the website but could not locate any resolutions.

SOURCE: problem with front load washer

Are stains a brown rusty color? If so, this may be an indication that the rear drum bearing is going bad. The bearing itself cannot be replaced. You will need to replace the entire back shell of the wash tub. Hope you have a warranty. This can be an expensive repair. Let me know if this is the case.

SOURCE: front loading washer leaves stains

This often is called "lint" but is really a "whiting" left by un-dissolved soap and can be seen at it's worst on dark colored clothes. This is made worse in a colder climate where the cold water entering the washer is much colder than normal. Things that can effect the quality of the finished washed products.
Too much soap: ( we have a test for this further down the page ) If you follow the manufactures instructions on the box, then chances are you ARE using too much soap. They like to sell you their product, I find cutting usage in 1/2 of what the box says will still wash good and also cut your chances of getting "whiting" on your clothes.

the dark stains are caused by mold build up on the boot of the washer, the e70 may be a pump error. you need to wet a cloth with bleach and then wipe of the mold builldup on the boot, this should solve that problem.

SOURCE: My Frigidaire Washer Leaves Stains all over our clothes

Since this happened from day 1, your water may be the problem. Do you have well water? If so, get a softener system. This will get rid of the iron, which is responsible for rust stains. I really doubt that a new machine would cause rust or grease.

Why didn't you do something five years ago when you first noticed this? It will be much more difficult to get a resolution from the manufacturer after5 years.

My LG Front Load washing machine is leaving black streaks and smudges on my clothing. These streaks and smudges are ruining my clothes!


Hi,

There can be several things that can cause this problem. The most common are:

1. Fabric softener - did you switch brands lately?

2. Chlorine bleach - if added at the wrong time

3. A mechanical problem with the washer, like a leaky transmission leaking oil.

4. Rust staining, sometimes caused by the water being used in the machine.

Here is a link to a site that discusses this issue more in depth:

Why is my washer leaving black stains on my clothes


It sounds like it might be leaving mold deposits. Try running a cycle with no clothes in it, hot, with a cup of bleach. If the stains are more brown than black, though, that would be rust in the pipes.

OIl stains on clothes with front loading LG washer


ftr loader washers do not have any oil, my guess would be you are using fabric softner . that can stain clothes. dilute with water, they are very concentraded. or your dispenser may not be working properly and not releasing softner at the proper time.i would run a clean cycle through it. meaning set on a hot wash- regular cycle no clothes and run wirth bleach in bleach disenser. do this every other month to keep washer clean hope this helps. make sure its not happening in the dryer , the dryer has frt and rear seals that go bad and start leaving marks on clothes and catching them in beteween the tub.

Clothes come out oily after wash


Hello
Welcome to fixya.
I'm Huuum and happy to assist you,

You said,you have a Eurotech front loader. Lately you have observed that your cotton materials come out with oily spots after wash. What can one use to address this problem.

In most front loaders when this happens it is usually either of two things.
1.Front loaders must have HE detergent for their use and if you do not use HE detergent you must cut your detergent and bleach in half.
Because to much detergent destroys your seal and eventually your bearings! And any other rubber seals like the rubber door seal in the front opening.
These degrade and get into the wash and depending on the color of the rubber (Black or gray) are found to stain your clothing or leave a residue in those colors.!
Those washers with Grey rubber like Maytag's have gray stains and or residues!
I have people asking me about this problem every day!

Call the manufacturer and ask if they have any cleaner that you can run once with out clothes to put an end to this!
And then use HE detergent and or half the dose of bleach form now on!

I hope this brings some lihgt to your problem. Please let me know what the Eurotech proplr tell you to use to clean it out of your washer!

Please remember to leave a rating before you go!
Thank you

Clothes coming out with stains they didn't have - looks like oil/grease


Front load greasy residue ,

Due usually to much detergent in each load, use smaller amounts.
To much detergent degrades the rubber seals and gaskets and rubber seal also in some front loaders around the door too!

Over the life of a front loading washer the seal/gasket degrades
largely due to the chemicals in the detergent as well as bleach.

Most gaskets/seals get hard and brittle therefore the over the life of a front loading washer
the seal/gasket degrades largely due to the chemicals in the detergent as well as bleach.

Rust stains and bleach spots.


I'm sorry but the white spots will be due to bleach. It may be that there was undissolved bleach in the washer after the first load. Maybe some of it came out with the whites and lay in wait in the basket.

I doubt the makers would guarantee anything for 7 years, so no free basket or installation is likely. Seems there is a chip in the enamel and dampness / water from the previous wash days before sits there collecting iron as rust particles.

For the time being you could try rinsing the machine out before the first load. That might prevent the rust marks or reduce them.

Stains on clothes


Have you tried Calgon to get rid of limescale deposits? Also have you used any laundry bleach at any point, because it stays in the machine for ages and clothes come out with faded patches and bleach marks for weeks afterwards.
