Question about Kenmore Washing Machines

1 Answer

For some reason, my washer is now starting to leave rust color stains on my clothes. Not on all clothes but only on the corner areas of clothes like the tips of the collars on mens shirts or the small straps of shirts.

If you wash your clothes with warm or hot water, try using ONLY cold to see if the problem goes away. Sometimes older water heaters start to produce rusty-colored water as they age.

Why is my washer leaving black stains on my clothes


It sounds like it might be leaving mold deposits. Try running a cycle with no clothes in it, hot, with a cup of bleach. If the stains are more brown than black, though, that would be rust in the pipes.

Washer leaves stains on clothing


Many times when we cook in the kitchen, we get splattered with oils that aren't easily visible. Very often these oil spots pick up dirt from the wash water. These stains don't usually get noticed until after the clothes have been dried. The best thing to do is to rub detergent or stain remover right on these spots and let them sit about half an hour. Then rewash the clothes in as hot water as the material can take afterwards.

Lately washer leaving "stains" on clothing...what causes this?


I have had customers that have complained of this. I my area it is usually related to hard water a iron in the water rather than being the fault of the washer. The washer and the clothing is just the place that it is most noticable. For these customers a water softener has solved the problem. You should get your water checked for hardness and iron it may be the problem. Another thing that it could be, is if you have iron piping in your house. Rust from inside the iron piping can flake off and stain your clothing. Just a few things that you can check out....

Starting to leave brown oily like stain on clothes


The first place that I'd check would be the small metal screens inside the openings on the water inlet valve. They can get really rusted, epecially in areas with hard water, so I would recommend removing the water supply hoses and take a gander at the screens. They can sometimes release the iron oxide into the wash water and cause brown stains or blotches on clothing. Hope this helped and best wishes.

My Frigidaire Washer Leaves Stains all over our clothes


Since this happened from day 1, your water may be the problem. Do you have well water? If so, get a softener system. This will get rid of the iron, which is responsible for rust stains. I really doubt that a new machine would cause rust or grease.

Why didn't you do something five years ago when you first noticed this? It will be much more difficult to get a resolution from the manufacturer after5 years.

Washer whining when washing and spinning leaving brown stains on clothes


Turn water off. Remove hoses and clean the rust out of the strainers at hose end. If they are clogged they will sound funny when water goes through them.

Rusty stains on all white clothes washed


I don't think the washer is at fault; the clue is 'Used very little.' I think the rust is originating in the water pipes serving the washer. The only help there is to run one machine with no clothes in it (wasting water) or putting splitters on the faucets and flushing the lines into a sink or other drain. To remove rust stains from WHITE (!) clothing and many synthetics, buy a product named 'Whink.' It is available in many drug stores, super markets, etc. in the area where one finds other laundry items.  It is fairly safe to use (with precautions) but keep out of reach of kids.

Rust stains and bleach spots.


I'm sorry but the white spots will be due to bleach. It may be that there was undissolved bleach in the washer after the first load. Maybe some of it came out with the whites and lay in wait in the basket.

I doubt the makers would guarantee anything for 7 years, so no free basket or installation is likely. Seems there is a chip in the enamel and dampness / water from the previous wash days before sits there collecting iron as rust particles.

For the time being you could try rinsing the machine out before the first load. That might prevent the rust marks or reduce them.
