Sounds like you need to have your machine looked at by a professional. You should not be finding rubber pieces in the machine.

SOURCE: LG WFT1391TP Top Load Washer - Black Clay Pieces in Drum

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

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.

SOURCE: i have an LG fuzzy logic top loader, black pieces

This is probably the seal around the door and drum. Professional work is required.

SOURCE: Clean LG WF-T652a Top Loader Washing Machine

I have this problem too and I solved it easily !!!!

I hypothesised that something was blocked by dried up lint/silt. So I filled the machine with very hot water and also poured hot water down the lint filter outlets. I left it for 5 minutes and then started a wash cycle - and the water now comes out of the lint filter ducts. ! :-)

Why does it leave black marks on clothes?

Your problem might very well be in the WASHER, not the dryer! If pieces of mold/mildew are in the clothes from a dirty washer tub, they will be dried into the fabric during drying! I don't know what type of washer you have, but it sounds like you need to really "slam" it with some washer cleaner or bleach--If you do this, follow these directions closely--Use a washer cleaner product(there are a slew of them on the market), probably for a really gunked-up washer, you will have to use 3 boxes, once a week for 3 weeks. Set the washer on the clean-washer cycle if so equipped(otherwise set it for bulky, HOT water, heavy duty, etc--you can turn off the spin--don't need it)
Now, run the cycle on an EMPTY TUB--NO CLOTHES. LET IT COMPLETE, this was run #1, THEN, RUN THE MACHINE AGAIN, ADDING *NOTHING*, WITH NOTHING IN THE TUB, this was run#2, next, for a first real load after a cleaning, ONLY WASH YOUR WHITES, USING THE NORMAL AMOUNT OF DETERGENT), this was run #3. What you're doing is ensuring that any chlorine-containing water has been flushed out of the unit prior to putting any colored clothing in! I hope I helped you and ANYONE else who reads this--this is for ANY washer--front loader or top loader.

My Samsung 13Kg Top Loader WA13G7Q1 continuously drains out the water when the drum is being filled , what could be the problem

Either your in house drain pipe is too low or your drain pipe is down into the drain too far and this causes a siphon effect. Pull drain line up out a little at a time until it stops draining while filling. Good Luck!

My washing machine fills with pieces of black matter. I have done machine clean washes and it still happens every time, covering my clothes in black pieces that look like cardboard. Please help my - the...

Hi mine does exactly the same! I have to call in my washing machine technician more often (he told me this would happen with a top loader as opposed to a front loader, boy was he right!!) and he cleans out the drum. Mostly it is the fabric softener which is too thick. I water mine down to 50/50 and I do another spin after my final wash. I also empty the filter of water at the side/bottom of the machine. This annoying problem is caused by the way the drum turns on a top loader as opposed to the front loader. My top loader cannot heat water automatically either like a front loader, and I think this also adds to the problem as hot/boiling water would dissolve all that soap/fabric softener. Hope this helps.

Samsung washing machine loader model wa13g7q1, machine intake water run for a while then changed operation into drain and drained water for a while then display IE error . what will be the...

The problem is the pressure sensor is either clogged or defective or a broken wire. To check if you know how to take apart look for sensor with small clear hose attached. Put some water into tub and disconnect little hose and blow into it you should hear like blowing into milk glass with straw. If no then you have a clog if yes you have bad sensor or wiring. If not able to find this call 1800 Samsung for there products.

How to remove a samsung 8kg top loader drum to pressure clean and remove black rubber like build up

No need to remove the drum. You can buy cleaning agents for the washing machine at the local supermarket. You have to actually run the machine in cleaner solution and you have to do this every 3 months at least.

Washing machine filter for roper top loader

it has a self cleaning filter mounted under the tub. if you want to clean out the tub and filter thoroughly then:
  • run a cycle with no clothes using hot water and a gallon or two of bleach. 
  • after the tub has filled up add a teaspoon or less of dish liquid like palmolive. this acts like a surfactant for the bleach. 
  • make sure you also run an extra rinse cycle to make sure you have all the bleach out of the machine before putting clothes in.

Black stuff in washing machine

You need to clean the filter out (look in your machine - it's on the side of the tub) then run a wash with a cup of vinegar in it (or on soak with napisan or something like that in it). It's just gunk build up.
