This is from not enough HOT loads.

Fatty deposits gather between the basket and tub during COLD washes.

Then they are being released in large numbers when you do your whites on HOT.

It is recommended to do 1 HOT load per week.

Do an empty load with some degreaser added (like Goo-Gone) on the fullest/hottest setting you have.

Why does my LG top load washer have mold in the detergent area?


This is a common issue, they make cleaning products to remove this gunk. Hot water and bleach will kill it as well.

GE Top Load Washer WLSR2000G3WW~leaves oil residue on clothes and bowl


If it is grease that is in the tub then the trans is shot. Thats the only part that would result in this. Very pricy part but if you want to order it go to marcone.com with your model number and you can get the parts. I would not recommend fixing this, costs almost as much as new unit.

Leaving black residue (spots) on clothing


Black spots usually come from the agitator shaft bearing seal which will, when worn, allow oil from the transmission to seep into the wash. Replace the seal, and maybe the upper bearing if the shaft itself will move visibly from side to side in various directions. If the machine is still under warranty, take advantage. Hope this helps!

Have residue on most to all clothes. i thought it was a water softner problem but that is now fixed. any ideas?


Residue is almost always soap related.
1: Soap goes in the washer first, then clothes. The other way around leaves soap on clothes.
2: switch to concentrated liquid soap. This blends better with cold water.
3: Dry soap has cardboard fillers. Cheaper soap has more fillers. Try a better soap brand.
4: The washer may have build up inside and may need to be cleaned out. (not likely as this clears up real fast)

Spins really loud louder than it use to and leaves the clothes with a brown residue but seems to perform normally.thought maybe had a bearing going out but that doesnt explain the residue on the clothes.


the rear main berring is rusted out. its putting rust mud in the washer as well as leaking out back. Its a major repair.berring is part or rear tub. Better off buying a new washer.

Kenmore 80 series washer leaves soap residue on clothes no matter


After speaking with someone with trouble shooting experience in these matters, I now believe the problem lies NOT with the washer but with a bad batch of laundry detergent which fails to dissolve properly in the water.

My washer has a really bad smell like musty if i leave the doors closed or if I leave clothes in for a couple of hours is this a probem with them


hi there,

the musty smell is from the door boot or gasket. deposit from clothes and detergent get trapped in there and have nowhere else to go. i would recommend purchasing Washerfresh tables to get rid of the deposits. they are available all over.
