SOURCE: slimy - stinky - brown residue on my clothes after wash

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.

Follow these steps to replace your door seal:

For all Free appliance repair videos visit our VIDEO TUTORIALS
Disconnect all power to the machine first!!

1 Locate the outer clamp band securing the seal to the door rim on the washing machine and examine it carefully for holes or tears. Many can be prised off with a flat-bladed screwdriver they have a spring system holding them, but some have a tensioning arrangement that has to be loosened.
2 After removing the outer clamp band, locate the inner one securing the seal to the drum and establish how this is secured. It may be necessary to loosen a clip, or you may be able to prise the band off with a flat-bladed screwdriver. Some are like very large Jubilee clips that you have to undo usually from the top.
3 Once the clamp bands have been removed, use both hands to pull the seal away from the inner drum rim. Some machines have a water spout holes that will have to be lined up. Others have a drain holes.
4 Rubbing a drop of washing up liquid into the groove on the door seal/gasket that locates on the drum makes fitting the new seal easier.
5 the new washing machine door seal should be fitted by locating the drain holes at the bottom of the seal first then push it on with both hands working opposite directions towards the top. This is quite hard if you have never done it before.
6 refit the inner band remembering this must be tensioned correctly for it to be water tight.
7 now fit the outer band and the test the machine for any leaks,

SOURCE: grey scum marking clothes

Power off the mains. The filter is located behind the silver plate at the back of the machine at the bottom. Four screws hold it on. Drain out all the water. The filter is inside the big black rubber hose attached between the pump and the main drum. Remove the plastic clip holding it to the pump unit and then the metal cir clip holding it to the main drum. Inside is a white molded cone and a big white ball which floats. You will find a lot of junk here, clean out thoroughly. To refit put white cone back inside just as you found it, at the bottom, fit ball back into the cone. Attach to the bottom to the drum and re-fasten the cir clip. Finally reconnect the gator to the pump unit and tighten the plastic clip. Check out the pump too before reconnecting.

And rate me nice pl for the free help!

Were there recalls on any of ghese models


The problem of residual water in front load washers is an on going problem. Some companies had put in a small drain hose in their units to alleviate the problem. Your washer is actually built by Whirlpool. There is no available auxiliary drain for these models. These are the suggested solutions to alleviate for your particular machine.

1. Leave the door open after wash completed. This will help to evaporate the residual water. If in an area where the door cannot be left fully open then place a towel over the top of the door to keep it from closing and that will help by keeping the door open a small amount.

2. To alleviate odor, pour one cup of bleach in the drum... DO NOT PUT ANY CLOTHES IN THE MACHINE! Put the washer through a wash cycle... some models had a clean cycle if your has this then use this cycle. Once this has completed remember to do a white load following this procedure to assure that if there is any bleach residual then it wont cause problems with colors.

3. Dry the door seal after each use... this will eliminate mold from developing on the door seal. If you see mold then use a bathroom cleanser for mold removal to clean the seal... DO NOT USE A SOLUTION OF VINEGAR... THIS COULD DRY OUT THE SEAL CAUSING IT TO CRACK THUS REQUIRING REPLACEMENT.

FYI: The Maytag Company went bankrupt sometime ago, the name Maytag wash purchased by Whirlpool and appears on products to secure the business of faithful Maytag users...

Hidden Gunk in Your Dishwasher


<span><span>You may be surprised to know you probably have "gunk" around the door seal and on the inside bottom of the door of your dishwasher. Using an old toothbrush or a soft cloth and some <a href="/#">white vinegar</a> or a mild cleaning product, rub around the door gasket and the edge of the door. You'll probably be amazed at the residue that you remove. You may have to wipe and wash several times to get off all the accumulation.<br />The reason this debris accumulates is that the water and <a href="/#">soil</a> seep under the seal but are not rinsed away. Because we can't see the <a href="/#">soil</a>, it hardens and the next time the machine is run, more soil is deposited. Eventually, the soil begins to spoil and an unpleasant odor develops. </span></span><br /> <span><span>Another trick is to GENTLY rub just under the gasket with a wooden toothpick. This will remove debris lodged under the gasket.</span></span><br /> <span><span>Cleaning the bottom and edges of the door will help to prevent unpleasant odors coming from your dishwasher.</span></span>

My GE washer is leaving a brown oily residue inside the drum after washes.


I amj thinking that you use soap powder in your washing machine. If that is the case what you are expericing is the accumulated powder residue under the agitator breaking away and marking the clothes. Re move the agitator and clead all the gunk out of the machine including a water recycling(saver ) hoses. Washing powder is 90% clay that is used to carry the active ingredaient and is never completely flushed in the rinse cycle. Ity also cause a deteriation of the hoses and pumpseal. When you have cleaned out the machine I recommend you only use liquid detergents as they are more effective and don't leave the residue.

Odor


You probably have "gunk" around the door seal and on the inside bottom of the door. Using an old toothbrush or a soft cloth and some white vinegar, rub around the door gasket and the edge of the door. You'll probably be amazed at the residue that you remove. You may have to wipe and wash several times to get all the accumulation off.
The reason this debris accumulates is that the water and soil seep under the seal but are not rinsed away. Because we can't see the soil, it hardens and the next time the machine is run, more of the soil is deposited. Eventually, the soil begins to spoil and an unpleasant odor develops. Try the door cleaning first and then run a cycle when the dishwasher is empty, using about 1/4 cup of white vinegar. This should be all you need to do.
I hope this helps with your "stinky" problem. If it does, please let Fixya know by rating my solution!
Good luck

My Hotpoint hvl211 has a lot of build up of 'residue' - basically gunk that gets stuck around the seal and between the seal and drum. It's really awkward to clean between washes but it I don't the residue...


The build up of residue as you refe to it, is due to doimn too many low temp washes.
you should do a boilok wash at least once a month, even if you do not put clothes in it, use the powder as normal with or with out clothes.
It is called a mintenance wash, and helps to stop buildup of grease and residue.

Dirt is accumulating between drum and rubber seal and leaves stains on the clothes.


Clean the door boot with a 50/50 solution of bleach and water with a rag. This should be done regularly. It will help keep the mildew off boot as well.
