Samsung WF337AR front load washer

When using bleach, it takes about 2 more cycles for all the bleach to get out of the system. We have already ruined many clothes due to this. Any suggestions?

We have Samsung WF448AAW steam, silver care washer. This problem only occurs on towel cycle. When we wash colored cotton terry bath towels and wash cloths there area areas about the size of your hand or...


This type of issues usually occur when the washer is unable to drain water completely, you can run your washer at its hottest temperature setting with 2 cups of vinegar inside the unit. After this take off the bottom front panel and clean it completely, also clean the drain hose and drain pump filter, the bleach marks should disappear after doing all this. Hope this helps...please post back for further assistance.

My Samsung front load washer, which is about 1 1/2 old, smells like mildew. I've read that people put bleach in the drum and run it on a maintanence cycle and I'm wondering how I do that. ...

I had this problem too---same washer. The rubber door seal often harbours moisture and it's hard to clean just by running a cycle. You'll have to scrub away the mildew by hand.

Get a pair of gloves, a soft sponge, and a bucket of hot water with soap and bleach. Open the door. Press the sponge into the folds of rubber where the moisture is trapped. Work your way around the circumference of the seal. Repeat until the black goo is gone. Finally run a rinse cycle with some bleach.

Avoid this in the future by leaving the door ajar when not in use. Tuck an old towel into the seal to wick away the water.

Let us know if the smell is still there.

Bleached out streaks on my clothing. After running a bleach cycle, the next load of clothing has bleach streaks...thus ruining the clothes. I have even tried running a water cycle only after a bleach...

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France @ 16:16 Mon afternoon.

Yes- I have a POSSIBLE solution but it depends on some answers-
I do not know your exact model- does it have a specific container for bleach or is the bleach poured into one of the powder/fluid/ conditioner trays?
If the latter, have you removed the tray and thoroughly cleaned it? If not it is possible that not all of the bleach is siphoning out properly because of a (partial) blockage. A similar thing happens to many people with the conditioner/softener tray. Because it is liquid the tray cannot have a simple open rear end else the conditioner would just pour in straight away so it uses a 'tube' down which the conditioner siphons/pours- providing that the tube is clear.
Trays are removed in a few different ways- pressing down on a plastic lip at the rear centre, pressing up on a catch underneath the tray OR by pulling then finally lifting the tray out.
Even if a blocked tray is not the answer, it is still worthwhile taking it out and cleaning on a regular basis. In the same way, particularly if you live in a 'hard' water area i.e. lots of calcium, it is well worthwhile running a sachet of proprietary anticalc powder/liquid through the machine- say every 3 months as I do!

I really hope the problem is the tray- though that might be too simple!
Best of luck,

After each load the "fill bleach cup" is filled with water. I have to take the whole tray out and flip it up-side-down to empty the water. I cannot find where the thing can be clogged. I can't use bleach...

Bleach & fabric conditioners "syphon away" into machine... try adding 1/2 lt water to the bleach compartment, if it then syphons away your syphon is not blocked. If it does not drain you will need to find the syphon cap - genarally just a tube, most manufacturers will make the tube a different colour to the rest of the draw.
If it did drain when water added you may have issues with bleach not being a part of that particular cycle, delicates for example...

Samsung Front Load washer has odour

IMPORTANT: Read thoroughly. DO NOT add detergent or other laundry products to this cycle.
1. Remove all items from the washer.
2. Open the dispenser drawer and 2/3 cup (160 mL) of liquid chlorine bleach to the bleach compartment. DO NOT use more than 2/3 cup (160mL) of bleach per cycle as this will lead to product damage.
3. Close the washer door and dispenser drawer.
4. Select the Clean Washer cycle or a full wash cotton 104 F wash (40 C). DO NOT use any higher temperature as this will cause unnecessary fumes
5. Press Start and allow cycle to complete.
6. If the bad odour persists, repeat the procedure 1 or 2 more times. This may be necessary if this is the first time you have run this cycle.
7. After the cycle is complete, leave the door open slightly to allow ventilation and drying of the washer interior.
8. Repeat the cleaning procedure monthly.
To maintain the washer freshness:
1. Use only HE High Efficiency detergent.
2. Leave the door open after each cycle to for better ventilation and drying of the washer interior.
3. Use warm / hot water in your machine unless the fabric you are washing requires cold.
4. Use the correct amount of fabric softener.
5. If your laundry room is damp, use a dehumidifier.
6. Clean the door seal of visible residue.

Clothes picking up residual dyes & bleach spots

I dont think the washing machine is designed to put bleach in??
Remember a washing machine is never really empty of water.
It holds about 1 litre of water in the tub after each cycle.
Thats the way they are designed.
The same as front loader.
I would put clothing in the tub to bleach,then rinse them in the tub with cold water ,then wash them?? cheers

Liquid Bleach dispenser doesn't work correctly

This may not be relevant, but by design, bleach does NOT dispense in the Buly/Bedding, Kids Wear, and Silk/Ultra Delicate cycles. If you try to use it, it remains in the dispenser.

As for the yucky smell, leave the door open when not in use.
