Question about Whirlpool Calypso GVW9959K Top Load Washer
When I wash dark colors in cold water, a white residue is left. I don't know whether is is soap or lint. But what is left on my white mattress cover looks like grey lint (after a hot water wash). The appliance salesman told me it is probably residue from the powdered detergent I used the first couple of months I had the machine and that the only solution is to take out and clean the drum, which is very expensive.
Sounds more like a build-up of particles that may very well be in the water supply. There is something that you can try to get rid of these particles.
1. With the machine empty start it in normal eash mode and let it fill. Add 1/2 cup bleach to the water and let the machine run completely through the wash cycle. This will help remove any unseen stains or build-up.
2. When the machine drains and begins to refill on the next cycle, add 1/2-1 cup of white vinegar and again, let the machine finish its' cycle.
3. Run the machine through the wash cycle one more time to remove any vinegar that may have been left behind.
This is not a guaranteed method but I have had some success.

My suggestion would be to get rid of the washer. I know it sound defeatist, but I have faced up to the fact that it is simply a bad product! I have had this Whirlpool Calypso for 5 years and its has been repaired over and over again, ruined hundred dolllars worth of clothing and caused me a lot of frustration. I actually have anxiety over whether I should trust the washer with my clothes.
