Question about Hoover HTC243 Top Load Washer
How can I remove the dirt accumulated in the machine from months of washing clothes?
A couple of gallons of VINEGAR in HOT water...let it sit in the drum for about an hour or so, then run through a full cycle of HOT water to rinse.
It not only removes dirt and oil and grease, it also removes ordors.

Go to the store and buy a bottle of CLR. Run a few cycles of it (without the clothes in there, of course!). Make sure you run a few cycles of just straight water before you attempt to wash clothes. That should do it. I've also heard of people using powdered lemonade to clean the inside of dishwashers, too. Maybe try the powdered lemonade first if you're squeamish about damaging something.

Without knowing the model number of your washer I will not be able to provide any model specific information. You did not indicate the size or shape of the spots. If you use cold water wash and rinses regularly it may have an accumulation of un-dissolved detergent, dirt/grime and body oils stuck on the inside wall of the outer tub. When washing using Hot water, it is causing some of the accumulation to break loose in small clumps and re-depositing on the clothes.
When this happens, the basket normally must be removed in order to scrap and clean the accumulation from the inside of the outer tub. Also, make sure to clean under the agitator when you remove it. Here is a video to show you how to get to the outer tub.
