Question about Kenmore Washing Machines

Clothes and our towels have an orange discoloration

My husband's clothes and our towels have an orange discoloration on them after I wash them (in spots). This does not happen with my clothes, and I wash them together; therefore, I do not think it has anything to do with the washing machine itself. Any thoughts? I am so tired of orange-spotted towels and clothes. Once they are discolored, it will not wash out.

The orange spots are caused by benzoyl peroxide that is used in some facial cleaners.

My bath towels have an unpleasant smell after washing and drying. I have tried a few things but am sick of trying,


If you have a smelly front loading clothes washing machine, toss in a Finish Geltabs (the ones that are all liquid) and run the machine on a hot wash cycle, medium to heavy load (to get more water in the tub) with no clothes in the machine. You don't need to use much of a spin cycle so set it on low. The washing machine will come clean and even the moldy spots on the rubber gaskets will disappear. A second treatment may be needed if the smell is not completely gone. We tried everything from vineger to bleach to baking soda to borax to commercially available odor removers from Whirlpool and Tide. Nothing worked until I hit on this idea. It's cheap, easy and can be done anytime your machine needs a refreshing. I used the orange Geltabs but any fragrance would be fine. Keep the door on your washer open a bit when possible to air out to help preclude those nasty smells.

Hairspray is an excellent solution to the ballpoint pen ink problem. Buy the cheapest you can find and spray, let the spray sit on the spots for a few seconds and wipe with a paper towel. Keep doing this until the spot is removed. This also works on fabrics as well. As a former teacher, my red grading pen ruined several of my white shirts. I used my husband's $1.29 can of hairspray and saved over $100 in garments. He was pretty angry about my using all his hairspray but when I pointed out the money saved by not having to purchase new blouses, he relented. I keep a can of hairspray in my laundry room at all times.

Discoloration on clothes


I don't believe it is your machine as much as it is your water needs testing. You might have too hard of water. Possibly rust, calcium, fluoride, or chlorine. Your PH could be too high or too low and your water could be acidic or more likely alkaline. Alkaline water will definitely create anomalous water staining.

Disolored clothing and towels


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.

Clothes picking up residual dyes & bleach spots


I dont think the washing machine is designed to put bleach in??
Remember a washing machine is never really empty of water.
It holds about 1 litre of water in the tub after each cycle.
Thats the way they are designed.
The same as front loader.
I would put clothing in the tub to bleach,then rinse them in the tub with cold water ,then wash them?? cheers

Clothes picking up residual dyes & bleach spots


You might want to check with the company on this one. You can email them at their web site. We've never run into this and I haven't heard of anyone else who has. Maybe your unit isn't pumping properly or maybe some of the water is siphoning back into the tub? I have heard about pumps becoming partially or fully clogged and in need of being cleaned out.

Keep us posted on this one?

Washer leaves spots on clothing


It most likely is fabric softener. You need to clean dispenser with hot water, if this has one. In real cold water the softener won't disolve properly and will cause this to happen.

Spotting on Towels and sheets


cut down slightly on the amout ot detergent you are using.
Check the inside door window, that probably has a residue of detergent on it from a previous washing. I wipe my inner door off with a towel that is going into the wash cycle. For as long as I have been diligent in wiping off the inner door window my the spots on my clothing haven't returned.
