Question about Washing Machines

Open Question

I HAVE A DIPLOMAT hja 8552 WASHING MACHINE THAT LEAVES DIRTY MARKS ON CLOTHES AND IS NOT SPINNING

The machine is around 6 years old and has a lot of use. I started to notice dirty greasy oily marks on clothes and it doesn't always complete a spin cycle, however the door lock does release so there is no residual water left in the drum. I have cleaned the door rubber and am in the process of locating the filter (which for an integrated washing machine is in a ridiculous place!) Any ideas what the problem could be? Both problems have been gradually worsening to the point of now rendering the machine unusable.

SOURCE: dirty washing

what this could be is your bearings check if there is any amount of movement from the drum by opening the door place your palm onto the front of the washer so its on the bodypart of the washer now place your fingers into the washer facing down so you can grab the drum with them now pull up and if there is any movement then its confirmed bearings need replacing m8 get the warranty company out its a big job some companys just replace the washer m8.It will be the bearings though what those black marks are is the grease out of the bearings cause the seal has gone ive done hundreds of bearing jobs let me know how u go on m8

SOURCE: Washing Machine smell

The problem comes from the design of the front load washers. There is always a little water left in the tub after the machine is used. Running a bleach load will deal with the mildew until the machine is used again. I leave the door open when I am not using my washer, and this does help.

SOURCE: old model rca washer machine...will not agitate/wash the clothes,does spin.

If the washer fills up with water and you hear the motor running but the agitator doesn’t move, the agitator coupling is the most likely problem. First pump the water out by turning the timer to spin. Once the water is out, turn the washer off. Now pull up on the agitator until it comes off (it may be hard to pull off). Now that the agitator is off, you can see the agitator coupling, reach down and try to turn the coupling. If the coupling turns freely, it is striped out and needs to be replaced.

I have a fisher&paykel washing machine every time l wash my clothes it leaves Dirty marks on my clothes I have pulled out the barrel and cleaned it and put it back together and it still leaves marks


With no clothes in the machine, Do a long hot wash, add some bleach, stop using fabric softener. Cut down on soap usage. This should clean out the machine. If it happens again, there may be a mechanical problem which is allowing grease or oil into the machine.

Ken more washer leaves dirty marks on clothes


Pull the agitator out and clean the inside of it and the area of the tub that it covers. A buildup of crud won't be removed by simply washing out the machine. Rinsing out a frying pan will get a lot of the dirt out but, it must be properly washed to get it all.

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

Dirty marks


Your problem is probably a little deeper than that. I would assume the machine is over five years old? I would remove the basket as well to clean out the tub where this problem starts.

Wasing machine leaves rust spots on clothes.


check the basket of the machine for rust spots on the basket if thats the case the basket should have a 10 year warranty depending on the age marks are either caused from that or the dryer. if its frigidaire the dryer then the front seals probably need to be changed make sure to find out exactly which machine its coming from
