Black marks on clothes after washing

I have tried cleaning my washing machine on 95 degrees setting with two persil tablets but the white clothes still come out with black marks on.Could you please advise me on how I can stop this happening. I have tried to remove the black gunge inside the rim of the door seal with some success but the black marks still remain. Thank You Michael Harper

Try running a few caps of CLR in the washer (without clothes, of course!) Then run a few cycles with no additives. I've heard that powdered lemonade works also. Might be safer to try first. Good Luck!

After adding the persil powder in the machine I cannot see any foam while the machine is washing plus I don't smell the soap on the clothes as if they are not clean


If you are using the powder or the liquid then you can see if this is used and the condition of the clothes must confirm., If not increase the quantity on the tray.

When I took out my white shirts (35% cotton & 65% polyester) I found they were dirtier than before and clothes were still wet.. my machine is Indesit WIA121. Any solutions?


The tablet washing powder is not the best, it takes higher temperatures to fully dissolve and they are more caustic than normal powder, You may also need to try cleaning the inside of your machine, you can either use about 1/8 cup dishwasher powder on a hot wash or you can buy specific de-scalers for washing machines.

Lg washer leaving black greasy marks on clothes


This is usually to do with fabric softener. Dilute it with more water. The fabric softener makes clots, and these make the marks on your clothing.

Hope it helps

Clothes are grey not white at 95 degrees


never do a 95 degrees white wash after a dark wash!!

The discolouration comes from the fact that water is never completely drained from the machine, and as such if there is any dye from a previous 'dark wash' you will be unintentionally washing dye into your whites.

Use colour catching or whitening products to reduce/ eleminate this

Hotpoint Aquarius WF740 My washing is coming out with dirty marks and bits of slimy dirt. I wonder if it is from the door seal as this is dirty or could it be something else? I used the persil gel filled...


Your pipe to the water pump exit is probably blocked with bits of old fluff or missing sock, i found that the clothes had slimy bits on mine, i tilted it up and removed the rubber water exit pipe from under neath, cleaned out all the rubbish and works a treat now.

White marks on my clothes.


Are you using TOO much powder? And is the machine set to the correct rinse tempature? You mention white stuff, does it look like undissolved washing powder? Or fabric softner? Possibly try liquid detergent and see if the problem continues. And follow the recommended amounts of detergent for each wash load, and the tempature settings. And of course the water levels. All of the above are crucial to insure you get maximum preformance and utility out of your machine, with the results you expect. Let us know what you find. Kindest Regards, Slats.

WF860 doesn't clean the clothes at all!


Lack of water in wash cycles. possibly due to blocked filters in water valves where hoses connect to machine or faulty water valve, normally cold inlet is the main problem

Whirlpool calypso GVW9959Q - Black stains on whites


At the end of the cycle, the wash plate nutates for
approximately 30 seconds to fluff the clothing after the
final spin. The action of fluffing causes the outer wash
plate seal to rub against the stainless steel basket while
they are both relatively dry. This condition causes the gray
discoloration.
RESOLUTION:
An updated machine control, part number 8542693, is
now available. The updated control reduces the fluff time
from 30 seconds to 8 seconds, allowing the clothing to be
fluffed, without causing discoloration.
Gray marks or smudges can be washed out of clothing
after wiping down the basket. The consumer should use
the recommended amount of HE detergent and the hottest
water safe for the fabric or hand wash the garment under
running water. In either case, the fabric must be cleaned
prior to running through the dryer
