SOURCE: front loader washing machine = black streaks on clothing

I am a recently retired engineer of 20 years once you have ruled out anything getting inside the machine by accident etc, like something in pockets or greasy overalls, then its likely to be the drum bearings, has the machine started to get noisy on the spin the drum bearings are covered by a rubber seal, this seal gets damaged or worn and water leaks into the bearings themselves washing out the grease back into the drum where the washing is, you could also notice slight water marks on the floor underneath the machine on the floor, take the back off and look for water marks coming from the drum outer casing behind the pulley, these marks will be brown and will originate from a small drain hole, if any of the above change the bearings before any real damage is done, either to the clothes or the machine, as repair can be expensive? sorry, hope i have helped you as to where to look at least,

SOURCE: Brown spotting on washed clothes

chances are if you have eliminated anything thats got in by accident that the drum bearings are about to go, the drum bearings are protected by a water seal, this has started to leak and is now washing the grease out of the bearings back into the wash, you may also find a small amount of water on the floor, if you also remove the back and look behind the large pulley you may also see brown water marks running from the center of the outer drum

the next step will be a very noisy spin, like a rumbling noise

DRUM BEARINGS sorry

SOURCE: dark dirty spots on some clothing items appears on every load.

what you are seeing is suds getting back onto the clothes. make sure you are using HE type soap and not using too much of it.
if you are seeing suds inside the unit, when it is running, then it will "re-deposite" dirty soap residues back onto the clothes.
you need to run a rinse and spin cycle or even a heavy duty cycle with hot water to rinse out any soap that is left in the unit.
not a major problem, just use it differently and it will be ok.

SOURCE: my clothes is wrinkles by my front loader washer

The previous poster was right, the spin speeds on front loaders are incredible. You almost don't have to dry! This is most noticable with heavier clothes, like jeans, especially new ones! This will help a lot: When you take your clothes out of the washer, pop, shake or fluff the wrinkled garment pretty good before you toss it in the dryer. Using a dryer softener sheet will lessen the effect as well. You can also select a lower spin speed, and make up the moisture difference in the dryer. Try shaking the clothes first as this is less expensive than operating the dryer, then back off of the spin speeds as your pocketbook allows!

If you use fabric softener it may be from the softener. Dilute your softener 50% before pouring it in.

I have owned our washer for seven years Why doesn't the bleach dispenser empty?


is it a front loader or top loader? what is the model number? normally you have 3 or more water inlet valves 1 for cold water, 1 for hot water and one for either fabric softener and or bleach, id say (without any specific info) that it is simply a jammed/faulty water inlet valve, or if its a front loader you often get this problem if the water pressure isn't high enough to create the siphon in the dispenser, i dont know why they set up the softener dispenser on front loaders as a siphon when the pre and main wash just wash through normally

I have a top loader Speed Queen and I had it just serviced. I use Bio Classic Soap and Softner. I wash my dark clothes inside out but the white spots still appear on my dark clothes. Ihave diluted the...


Vinegar is good for cleaning scale off of appliances. I would us more then 10 ml. It won't hurt anything. Have you always used the Bio Classic Soap without any problem. You may want to try another kind or dissolve it in hot water before adding the clothes and switching to the water temp you normally use. Do neighbors also have this problem with the lime water.

Grey spots on our white clothes after wash


do you use affresh to clean your front loader? deposits of soap and other such things can be stuck around the inside tub of your washer. try this porduct out it works great on all front loaders use hot water with the affresh pellet with no clothes and run the machine through a cycle this also helps with any stagnant water smells also have you cleaned out your pump lately. * note remeber to put the pellet on the inside of the machine not in the soap dispenser

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.

Grease/dark spots on 'clean' clothes


This is a cronic problem of front loader machines. The two bearings that hold the wash drum are dried out and then they over heat. The heat build up weakens the seal that keeps water in and grease out starts to leak and the problem just becomes worse with every load. A service repair man will charge you the cost of a new machine to fix the unit. You can replace the bearings and seal with parts from a bearing supply store and if you do, only use bearings from Japan or Germany. Your machine came with ones from China and that is why these machines are failing after 4 years.

Clothes come out oily after wash


Hello
Welcome to fixya.
I'm Huuum and happy to assist you,

You said,you have a Eurotech front loader. Lately you have observed that your cotton materials come out with oily spots after wash. What can one use to address this problem.

In most front loaders when this happens it is usually either of two things.
1.Front loaders must have HE detergent for their use and if you do not use HE detergent you must cut your detergent and bleach in half.
Because to much detergent destroys your seal and eventually your bearings! And any other rubber seals like the rubber door seal in the front opening.
These degrade and get into the wash and depending on the color of the rubber (Black or gray) are found to stain your clothing or leave a residue in those colors.!
Those washers with Grey rubber like Maytag's have gray stains and or residues!
I have people asking me about this problem every day!

Call the manufacturer and ask if they have any cleaner that you can run once with out clothes to put an end to this!
And then use HE detergent and or half the dose of bleach form now on!

I hope this brings some lihgt to your problem. Please let me know what the Eurotech proplr tell you to use to clean it out of your washer!

Please remember to leave a rating before you go!
Thank you
