This means that the machine drum needs cleaning. A suggested method of doing so follows;

To keep the machine clean of waste build up and to keep any bad odours away

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. After the cycle is complete, leave the door open slightly to allow ventilation and drying of the washer interior.
7. Repeat the cleaning procedure monthly

Strange yellowish circle appearing on white shirts


i believe the stains are actually semi burn marks. If you are drying your whites try a lower heat setting. i had this problem with my kenmore dryer before too. Got bad especially with towels. Make sure your vent is not clogged and your filter is cleaned regularly to let the heat flow better. should help.

Our tumble action front-loader washer just recently started leaving black marks in the pattern of the holes on the inside of the washer drum- We ran it twice without anything in the washer, and it still...


Thanks for stopping by:

This is from not enough HOT loads.

Fatty deposits gather between the basket and tub during COLD washes.

Then they are being released in large numbers when you do your whites on HOT.

It is recommended to do 1 HOT load per week.

Do an empty load with some de-greaser added (like Goo-Gone) on the fullest/hottest setting you have.

Thanks for using FixYa!!

My white washing came out with black marks on why?


Hello, you have to fill your washer with water then add a couple of cups of white vinegar and then run it through the circle without any clothes in it, the vinegar will rid your machine of any deposit that should not be there...

Leaves white marks on coloured clothes


I'd try putting the machine on a hot fill wash, max water level put in half a cup of baking soda when the machine starts to washer turn it off and leave it to soak overnight, then let it finish the cycle the next day. Also make sure you tip some of the hot water down the beach dispenser and clean all around the top of the machine
