Candy CMD 146 washer dryer. I just had my washer-dryer repaired by CandyHoover. They replaced the tub and drum. I put it through the half hour cycle yesterday, then today I put a couple pairs of jeans in it on the 40C cotton cycle. When they came out they looked like I had been wearing them in the mud. They were streaked with gunge basically - I guess this happened throught the 'replacements' being fitted. Anyone know what I should do to get rid of this? Someone suggested bleach, but I don't know whether this is a good idea. Any suggestions welcome.

The main bearing in the tub has gone out, usually happens form the water seal going out first and the bearing getting rusted. The bearing comes as an assembly with the rear half of the tub. Both the rear half of the tub, and the drum will need to be replaced.
If you call for repair it is going to most likely be a complete tear down of the washing machine.(3-5 hours) If you take the top off, (3 screws in back, slides back and lifts off) you will see a number of clips holding the two halves of the outer tub together.Front has to come off to remove tub assembly. The rear half where the bearing is you want to replace comes as a assembly(over sized shipping also) There is a seal, two bearings pressed into the outer rear tub assembly. You do not need any special tools to do this repair, if you decide to do it yourself to save labor cost, mark everything when taking it apart, it is easier to assemble later. If it is newer there may be a part warranty, then your calling for service.
Tell the dealer you want a different make!
IT'S EASIER TO KEEP CUSTOMERS THAN TO FINED NEW ONES!
We have been selling appliances for over 65 years! And you will only see one GE appliance on my showroom floor!
Whirlpool or SPEED QUEEN! ARE THE BEST!
HERE IS MY STORY FOR YOU!
AFTER 6 YEARS AND THREE repairs. I threw GE in the trash and bought a Speed Queen Commercial grade washer and, I AM 53 YEARS OLD AND THIS IS THE LAST WASHER I WILL EVER BUY! tHEY ARE TESTED AT 8 loads a week for 25 years!!!!!!!
The washers and dryers today use so much less water,electricity,and detergent that they pay for them selves after a only a few years. My advise is, it is cheaper to buy, run, and operate a new efficient machine! You will see you water and electric bill reduced!!!!!!!!! Speed Queen commercial grade top loader uses only 34 gallon of water compared to the others at 48-54 gallons!
THE FRONT LOADER,
(GET THIS) ONLY 13.9 GALLONS of water and washes in 35 minutes and the clothes are cleaner and last longer cause it uses water agitation instead of a vain to wear out your clothes! How about spinning at 1000 RPM and the clothes come out so dry they are only in the dryer half the time than all the other machines! Thus half the gas or electric bill!! All my employees have replaced their laundry pairs with Speed Queen! My Guys call it the, "No brainier Machine!"
I hope you can utilize the good advice I so enjoy sharing with all the good people we talk to!

IF IT ROARS LIKE A JET PLANE TAKING OFF, THE SPIN BEARING IS FAILING. PROBABLY, THE REAR SEAL HAS FAILED ALLOWING WATER TO GET INTO THE BEARING.
THE BEARING HAS LOST ITS LUBRICATION SO IT IS GETTING DRY. IT WILL CONTINUE TO GET LOUDER AND LOUDER THE LONGER REPAIRS ARE PUT OFF.
THE ENTIRE BACK HALF OF THE OUTER TUB WILL HAVE TO BE REPLACED. THE BEARING IS PART OF THAT ASSEMBLY. CAN BE A COSTLY REPAIR.
Call a local repair tech. I know one in Milwaukee :)
Seriously, your machine needs some possibly expensive repairs beyond a novice's skills. The dryer has a felt bearing around the front of the drum that is probably worn out. Check on the rear bearing and the belt at the same time. The washer may need a new transmission, belt, tub seal, and spin bearing. That's an involved repair. Expect to pay extra for labor, but the total bill should be less than the $800 - $1400 for a new machine.
