My Whirlpool super capacity 2 speed 7 cycle washing machine filter is dirty because it makes marks on clothing. Any suggestions on how to fix this please. Thanks Regards George


Hi, sometimes even after cleaning the filter dirt remains in the machine. The best thing that can help solve this problem is to buy a descaling powder for washing machine (available at supermarkets or hardware store) and follow the instructions on the box or packet, this will take awhile as you will have to stop the cycle by turning the power off when the machine is full of water (with no clothing in it) and then restart the cycle, (about 2 hours). Descaling is necessary as the soap powder attaches itself on the rear of the rotating drum and cannot be seen and some dirt(streaks) will appear on the washed clothing. Hope this helps. All the best.

The whashing comes out with white powder like stuff. Can I clean the drum and if so how ? is it flint that gathers some where?


Hello Sir Tommis,

I understand that you are having a problem with your washing machine. When you wash clothes they come out with a white powder like substance on them. This white powder substance is the powder laundry soap that you are using.

This is generally caused by adding to much soap and clothes to the washing machine. The soap is not getting dissolved and the clothes do not have enough room to agitate in the machine. Try to put 3/4 of the amount of clothes in the washer with the same amount of soap and see if the clothes come out with the same powder like substance on them.

The clothes that currently have the soap on them will have to be hand washed with a scrub brush in oder to get the material off of them as running them though the washer will not remove the soaked in soap.

Thank you for choosing FixYa.com

The dish washing powder does not wash out completely unless the machine is set to heavy duty only. we will often open the machine at the end of a wash cycle and see the soap powder all wet and soft but not...


Seems to be problem with spray arm pressure. Check the spray
arm jet nozzles.
Check the incoming water flow to the machine. clean the strainer fitted at the washing machine end connection.

Smelly front loader washing machine. Clothes come out smelly too. How did I fix the problem???


You may have to do this 2 times and you will never find this in any manual. Use 1/4 cup "Powdered" Dishwashing soap and 1 cup of bleach in an empty tub cycle. Run a load of older dark clothes or non flammable rags FIRST after doing this the first time. If they come out with streaks run the cycle of 1/4 cup Powdered dishwashing soap and 1 cup bleach again. Same routine after 2nd cleaning cycle... dark clothes check for anything out of the ordinary. You should not have to do it a 3rd time unless your machine is really gunked up. Hopefully your using HE type soaps in your front loader. Non HE laundry soaps will cause the smelly machine also.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Clothes still wet after wool cycle


Hi
For all washing machines irrespective of the make... Wollens and acryllic do NOT have a spin cycle as the same will damage the clothes....
In wollen and acryllic mode the machind is NOT supposed to go into a spin cycle and hence you get wet clothes.....
There is Nothing wrong with your machine.

Samsung Washer,less than year old. Not every load and not every item but periodically something will come out with stains not previously on the item.


Hi,

This is common, if the machine does predominantly COLD washes.

Over a period of time, there is a build up of soap scum (washing powder/fabric softener etc) inside the machine, caused by using excess soap powder/detergent.

To recitfy this, fill the empty bowl (no clothes) with a solution of HOT water & CITRIC ACID (found in the baking isle of your grocery shop) on HI Water level. Set the machine to wash cycle, then drain.

Fill again with same solution, but leave solution inside the bowl overnight.

Drain next day, then follow with 1 single HOT wash (no clothes) on HI water level again.

The scum should be gone...

The hot flush should be done at least every 6 months, but this can be dramatically reduced if you use less soap powder (Samsung machines do not require as much powder, as do other machines)

Put the machine on a service wash, (that is a very hot wash with a good quality washing POWDER and no cloths) allow the machine to complete the cycle. This may need to be repeated once a week or month until you are happy the smell has completely gone. If possibly I would avoid liquid soap in future. But that is just my opinion.
