graying of clothes is usualy caused by / serveral things . too much soap / washer not rinsing properly / and gas dryers. change your dergt. use one with a bleach in it . and use 2nd rinse ( cold water ) make sure washer drains wash water completly . do this by cking the drain pump clean out .. if cloged it will slow the drain cycle and you will be rinsing with the wash water . also use H E dergt. . if dergt is still in clothes when drying this turns nylon yellow and whites gray .. .also seperate colors . and whites .. **** ..
are you on a well?? do you use bleach in with your whites?? some well water untreated can cause exceptionally stinky machines, especially if no or very little bleach is used during white washing.. usually if you use bleach in with your whites in normal amounts and leave the door open in between uses there should be very little stinky odor or mold growth. the mold growing on the gasket is a sign of to little bleach or none being used, and/or a really damp environment for the unit to reside in. they do make several cleaners designed just for stinky front loader washers.. they might help.. i've been using a front loader for 13 years, leave the door ajar between uses, and use bleach in every white load and have had no issues with stinky unless i or someone else doing wash forget and close the door for a couple days, then it gets stinky but goes away after white load with bleach and hot water.. hope this helps, best of luck, ttfn
Oil from transmission is a good possibility. The machine is still young but sounds like you do a lot with the washer. Better have a friend that don't mind looking it over, make sure that's oil and go from there!
I don't know if this is a solution to your particular problem but when we wash whites, first, we wash them twice,with hot water, second, we dont use bleach!!! (this will eventually yellow them). Third, we dont use liquid softner. For the whites we use a softner sheet in the dryer. Since we started to use this procedure I have noticed a marked decrease in areas such as under arm stains in white under shirts. I have some that are 2 years old and have no stains or yellowing like this. Hope this helps
did you dry any of this load in the dryer? If you did, the color is set you wont get it out.
If not rewash everything, Except the red t shirt! in the Hottest water the clothing can take. If its whites use a little bleach. you could also use a color safe bleach on colored items. You may want to divide up the load into similar items. Experiment what have you got to loose.
One time we washer a gray sweatshirt with a red sweatshirt, why the gray turned Pink! I dont know we line dried it and washed again, The pink came out.
i have used everything to solve this exact problem! I have to say the best detergent or bleach i have used in the lg..is the purex with bleach for colours it seems to work better than anything ive used...spent a fortune to have to soak my whites before putting them in this washer. I must say im disappointed..
