Rust around my bleach despenser and under the side of top where the despenser is help


Bleach tends to eat thru the paint and cause the rust. What I do on a call for this is to take the bleach cup out, sand the area and paint the area with appliance paint. Here is a link to the paint I use in case you want to do it. The only way to keep this from occurring again is try not to let the bleach get on the painted areas. I know this is hard to do on a washer but you can try to poor some water around the area of the bleach cup. If you should get the paint else where, be sure it is enamel appliance paint.

Ive got bleach on my black clothes, is there any way to fix it properly?


So sorry. The worst part about bleach is that it is very good at permanently erasing pigment.

You could theoretically dye your clothes (if they were all pure black ... it's going to dye everything, including prints). Look for "Rit". You will have to do it several times, and don't expect a miracle.


Also, when you're done, be sure to run the washer with nothing in it, so you don't accidentally partially dye your whites with the next load.

How do we get debris out of the bottom of the tub


Hi Ms. McCord. To clean the washer, we would recommend running a cycle on the hottest temperature possible, and adding a cup of bleach to the bleach compartment. You can also use Affresh tablets to clean the washer. Hereis a link to the Affresh tablets for the washer: http://bit.ly/Nd4OeX . I hope these suggestions prove helpful. Sincerely, Melanie, Maytag Social Media Representative.

Can I dye my hair blonde for a day?


Not exactly... the term "dye" causes a lot of confusion, but dye generally means making the hair darker. To make the hair lighter you must use a special bleach. Hair bleaching is permanent and cannot be rinsed away. It can be dyed back to it's original color however, but the bleach does damage to the hair. In extreme cases, where the hair was dark brown or black and is bleached to blonde, the hair becomes very thin and resembles the texture of cotton. You can lighten hair temporarily by using theatrical hairsprays. These come in every color of the rainbow including white, gray and blonde. These color sprays actually sit on the outside of the hair strand, and can be shampooed completely out after brushing the hair.

Washer has serious stink. It is a top loader and I do not see a lint trap.


Washer smells foul...this is often a build up of soap, water, too many chemicals and this has left a residue, and the mildew moves right in and it stinks. This builds up is often on the inside of the outer tank - picture help
Many times that this happens is when people use to much soap and then they only do laundry once a week.
One good solution to help your odor problem...it works well...in a top loader I recommend 2 cups of cascade and 2 cups of bleach, fill your machine with hot water and let it agitate. At the end of the agitation/wash cycle, let the machine sit and soak for about 10-15 minutes to work on your scum, then close the lid and let it complete. Next load run whites to be safe all bleach is out. This should help.
On some really bad odor problems, you may have to remove the inner basket to scrap off the build up from the inside of the outer tank. You may will need special tools to remove the inner basket. 
Fabric softener is also nasty for building up inside and under the agitator
It is recommended to use half to a quarter of the detergent that the package  recommends.
Other things that may help, leave the washer lid open between laundry days. Never cover your washing machine with those plastic covers. 
 
ODORS IN DUET HE3 & HE4 WASHERS CLEAN OUT PROCEDURE
NOTE: Make sure that you read these instructions completely before beginning the clean out process.
1. Open the washer door and remove any clothing or items from the washer.
2. Inspect the gray colored seal/bellow between the door opening and the basket for stained areas. Pull back the seal/bellow to inspect areas under the seal/bellow.
3. If stained areas are found, wipe down these areas of the bellows using the following procedure:
a) Mix a dilute solution of liquid chlorine bleach and water (3/4-cup bleach in
1 gallon of warm tap water).
b) Wipe the seal/bellow area with the dilute solution.
c) Let stand 5 minutes.
d) Wipe down area thoroughly with a dry cloth and let the washer interior air dry.
e) Please note:
- Do not use bleach at full strength for cleaning surfaces.
- The use of rubber gloves is recommended when cleaning for prolonged periods.
4. To begin the clean out cycle, do the following:
a) Open the washer door and remove any clothing or items from the washer.
b) Be sure door is closed.
c) Open the dispenser drawer and remove the detergent divider from the main wash detergent compartment. See the Use and Care Guide for instructions. No additives will be added at this time. You will be required to add them at a later step.
- For Whirlpool Duet, select the �Power� button.
- For Kenmore Elite HE products, move to the next step.
d) Select the �Normal� wash cycle.
e) Select the hottest wash water temperature available, (not all temperatures will be available).
f) Select the highest spin speed available.
g) Select the additional or 2nd Rinse option (if available).
h) Press and hold the �Start� key for 2 seconds. The door will lock and filling will begin. NOTE: The water will dispense for a moment, then the door will unlock and re-lock and the cycle will continue.
i) Once the filling has begun again, open the dispenser drawer and immediately add 1 cup liquid chlorine bleach to the main wash detergent compartment.
The liquid chlorine bleach should immediately flow through the dispenser.
NOTE: Do not add any detergent to this clean out cycle. Use of more than 1 cup of bleach per month will cause product damage over time. Addition of bleach without immediately starting the cycle will cause product damage over time.

Can I use non-chlorine bleach in our new Bravos washer?


Use only chlorine bleach, using any other kind of bleach that isn't recommended can cause damage to the washer and void any warranties.

Kenmore washer smells/mildew on rubber


The smell problem is actually because of the softener....its nassssty stuff it coats the interior of the washer and forms a grease like residue. I would use Washer Magic (available at all appliance parts retailers) (only half the container in front loaders) and a hot wash. Also keep spraying the boot with bleach and water soluiton every few hours it will dissappear after awhile. please rate my help
