Be aware that most washing powders have filler in them, mostly sodium sulphate. Only the really expensive brands do not. This will not dissolve as readily. Try using liquid wash detergent instead.

It is not a good idea to post your personal email on this public forum.

SOURCE: Black particles in clothes after using a top loading samsung fully automatic washing machine

You said these particles stick to the clothes, do they come off and then leave a stain? It may be grease or oil coming from a leaking drum bearing seal.
If it is, This is a major repair and not one for DIY.

Inside the dispenser drawer, at the bottom there is a tab that you can push down to remove the dispenser drawer. Remove the drawer and check if the dispenser holes are clogged, this is a common cause.

Caustic soda. Be careful to wear gloves. Fill tub with water, cold will do, put in about 100gms of soda and turn on a extra large wash cycle only. Don't let the water drain, allow to stand over night, then complete wash cycle. You will find that hugh amounths of lint come loose. Repeat if necessary. I now do this about once every two months. Another thing to remember is to always leave lid open when machine is not in use, this prevents musty smells.

I have become obbsessive in sorting out the problems discussed and am now looking for a service manual for a WF-T7014PP as i want to remove the pulsators to ensure ther is no lint stuck in there. If anyone can assist please mail to lesleyfouche@vodamail.co.za

SOURCE: washing machine drum is very wobbly

* General tips
* Balance the load
* Level the machine
* Inspect the water pump for a blockage
* Inspect the coupling
* Inspect the transmission
* Adjust the drive belt tension
* Check the motor bearings
* Check the drum brakes

The above are possibly the general remedies for this problem.But possible if the problem still persists after this, possibly the drum bearings might have been damaged during the previous heavy vibrations.Please do post comments.Will be glad to help you out.Good luck.

Use Top Loader or Front Loader detergents Do you need to dissolve all powders or liquids before washing Can you alter spin time or speed


the use of liquid detergents is recommended over powders in washing machines as they do leave a mud build up over time in the bottom of the wash bowl
no they do have to be dissolved before use
spin speeds are set in the machine program and cannot be altered
spin time is set in the machine program and cannot be altered
use the recommended detergents for the machine because if you use top loader detergent in a front loader it will froth up excessively and cause problems for a front loader machine
the suitability of use for the detergent ( powder or liquid) is clearly marked on the labelling on the bottle or packet

I bought the Samsung 8 kg Top Loader (Model: WA80V3WIP) a few weeks ago. I only use cold water and bought the yellow packet of Sunlight washing powder, which specifically says on the packet that it works...


As with any top-loader, the soap drawer will deposit the entire soap load on one spot within the first few seconds of water fill. When the water starts running through the soap drawer, the brakes on the drum are released, so you can manually rotate the drum to disperse the soap over the load surface, thus eliminating the concentrated spots. Also, you may save the duvet, as the white marks are most probably dried soap powder which can be removed with a damp cloth wiped over the area.

Using powder 1/2 recommend amount. there is a continual build up of powder in the dispensing cavity behind drawer. how do I prevent this am having to clean with toothbrush daily


Hi

When you start a cycle, does the machine take a long time for it to fill up with water.

If so, you have a faulty inlet valve. There is a rubber diaphram inside the valve which tends to tear over time.When this happens the water just trickles in. Therefore the soap/powder is not dissolved into the tub thouroughly.

Some powders also dissolve less than others, and using the machine on hot water cycle helps to dissolve the soap faster.

Water usage per cylce


water usage is about right. top loaders use far more and so does hand washing
only way there would be excessive water usage is if machine were overfilling
