Washing aluminum insert - turning water black

When we wash our aluminum insert... the aluminum is seaking into the water turning it black! this can't be good. should we be using a different type of insert? Is it safe? Should we order a new one or just a different material all together?

There comes black stuff out of the washer when i spin. Isit the stasoft?


Fill your machine with hot water (if you only have cold water connected, then add hot water with a bucket) until the machine is filled to the top mark. Add a cup of dishwasher powder and stir it to dissolve. You can also let you machine run a short while, but be carefull that the water is not pumped out. Turn the machine off and let it stand overnight. Then turn it on the next morning and let it wash a complete cycle. You don't have to let the rinse part of the cycle complete. Just turn the machine off when the first water has been pumped out.

What this does: The machine builds of a residue between the drum and outer housing which is not removed in the normal wash cycle, especially if you don't wash with hot water. LG recommends that the machine is cleaned in the above way once "fluff" or black residue is starting to show in clothes after washing.

Is there a filter in the machine that \i should be cleaning as i keep getting black bits on the clothes?


The black bits are scum flaking off from between the inner & outer bowls, usually more common with cold water wash. Place old towel in washer, fill washer to high level with hot water, add washing soda & or vinegar, let washer run to end of wash cycle, turn off & let it soak for around an hour, turn back on & let it go through cycle. Commercial washing machine cleaning products should also be availably in your supermarket / hardware stores. You may need to repeat process until no more gunk comes out.

My lg Washing Machine WF-T853A is putting black rubbery chunks and flakes through every wash.. This has been happening for about 12 mths and is getting worse to the point where half the lint bags are full...


sorry to ask you this but are you sure the flakes are rubber? usually the black flakes are lint from the clothes. to help combat this problem try this.1- buy 2 pkts of bicarb of soda or baking soda, 2- select high water fill. 3- select hot water fill.4- pour soda into an empty machine. 5- shut the lid and push the start button. 6- let it fill and wash, let it wash for about 5 to 10 min"s , do not let the water drain.7- turn machine off after letting it wash for 5 to 10 min"s , and leave the water sit in the bowl overnight . 8- in the morning start cycle again and let it go thru complete cycle. this should get rid of most of the lint. you might have to do this twice depending on how dirty the plastic tank is. please reply 4 more help and good luck.

You cannot wash aluminum items in a diswasher with phosphate based detergent. You'll corrode the aluminum. Best practice is to handwash any aluminum items. Phosphate over time will also etch your glasses, so I suggest always using a non-phosphate detergent - look for Seventh Generation or similar "Eco-friendly" detergents - it will save your glassware too.

My lg front load washer will not turn on when i press the start button, i used it several times already today?


Had the same problem today. On the front bottom left hand side there is a small door. Open the door and unplug the black rubber hose, this will allow the water to drain (make sure you have a small bucket to drain the water into.) After the water has drained, unscrew the black filter. Wash the filter and insert it back into the washer. Turn the filter until it will not turn any further. Plug the black water hose and close the door. If you had the same problem I did then it should work.

LG recommends that the filter be cleaned twice a month.

Looking for help with the Whirlpool GR2SHK-XKQ00, top mount refrigerator. Water is coming into the refrigerator from the freezer, possibly linked to self-defrost cycle, def. not ice maker. Drain pan is...


Remove the lower freezer panel end then remove the rear panel . Remove the ice under bottom panel . Useing a hair dryer , heat the aluminum tray under the coils until you see the black drain hole . Continue defrosting the hole until free of ice . Could help useing a small screwdriver into hole . Even hot water into hole could help to clear . Once water will drain into hole , use a small hose inserted into hole and blow thru it to clear and obstruction in the line (line is inside the cabinet , unaccessable ) , Then find about a 14-16 gauge aluminum wire , aluminum fence post tie , aluminum ground wire , and insert it into the hole until resistence is felt . Wrap the top portion about 1 turn around the calrod (black) heating element and cut off the rest of the aluminum wire . The element will transfer heat to the wire during defrost , to keep the drain hole clear of ice .

I have no idea if this will actually work, I have never tried it myself, but a guy I worked with on washing machines years ago used to swear by putting 3 DISHWASHER tablets in the drum and then running the hottest cycle that the machine would run (White cottons 90 degrees if you have it).

Any of you have a dishwasher and want to try throwing 3 tablets into the washing machine and reporting back on the result?
