Question about Admiral AW22 Top Load Washer
Remove the hoses from the water inlet at the taps and/or at the back of the washer and check the filters in the hoses for the same flecks trapped in the screens.
If yes....the flecks are coming into the washer from the water supply.
If no.....run a empty load with a full water level with a product to remove rust,calcium and lime.
Make it strong.
Run the same full level wash cycle again with bleach.(strong)
Is the drain hose clear....does the machine quickly drain well?
If the flecks continue......you may have to use your warranty to correct the problem of a defective tub and or agitator.
Save some of the flakes for the repair people if you have to use the warranty.

Hard to tell what the spots are without
seeing them... But... If they're black greasy spots they could have
been caused by the washer. As for the clothes, I'd suggest
wetting the spots with liquid detergent, rub it in and wash them
again... Now then, if the spots are lighter it may have been the
detergent or fabric softener
You need to try a process of elimination to figure this one out. It could be the detergent which should be put in before the clothing or diluted with water. It could be dryer sheets or liquid fabric softner and yes even the body spray. Change one of the things at a time untill you can figure it out.
fill your washer with water then add a couple of cups of white vinegar and then run it through the cycle without any clothes in it , the vinegar will rid your machine of any deposits that should not be there
My first guess is that it's rust coming from your washer,if you eliminated most of the other possibilities already.
However, there's one thing that may be different: do you use different temperature water on dark clothing from what you use on light colored clothing? If so, whatever is causing the stains could be coming from your water heater and it's simply more noticeable on dark clothes.
Obviously your water is an issue, but it doesn't fully explain the mystery. The above are guesses, but I hope they might lead you to a solution.... but it would be just guesses like this unless the machine is opened and checked ..... since your unit is under warranty (only 9 months old)..... you cannot do this as it would void your warranty if you open the unit.....
if you have tried all the above possibilities and still you get them..... something is rusting away inside.... i would advice you not to waste anymore time and call the manufacturer at the earliest.... sometimes allowing the machine to function with a defect could make it even worse...

Try to clean your washing machine .Every now and then grime bulids up in the machine after constant washing .So we need to clean them out every now and then. Run a warm to hot cycle on a medium size wash 1 cup of vinegar and a cup of cloudy ammonia,with out any clothes.Let the cycle run through out the end.If you are able to change the rpm spinning speed on the machine,then do so when cleaning it, to the lowest speed.
Hope this helps
