Question about Washing Machines
I think I've had my GE washer for a couple of years - no problems. All of a sudden I'm getting a brown-slimy-smelling residue on my clothes. It seems to be worse during the hot cycle. Any ideas? I also re-washed them in cold using bleach and could not get the gunk off my laundry. I also notice a brown ring on the walls of the drum.
Check the water inlet valve/ Remove the water supply hoses and check the small screens inside the water inlet valve. Make sure they are free of rust or debris. The small screens tend to get rusty due to elements in the water and can cause the type situation you describe. I will attach a photo for reference. Hope this helped and best wishes.
