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,

Mold smell comming from duet washer


Try using bleach with hot water, run a cycle with hot water and bleach. Or spray bleach +water mixture on the seal. Run a cleaning cycle with hot water and bleach or vinegar at least once a month to reduce the growth of mold in other parts of the washer. You can also try using 1/2 a cup of Washing Soda or 4 cups of baking soda Crystals and run the machine with no clothes in it. This would remove all the debris, lint & mold growth from the drain pump and drain filter. This would clean the mold from the door seal as well. Hope this helps... Please post back if you need more information.

How do I get rid of a mildew odor in the Whirlpool Duet front loader?

bleach and bleach and bleach and bleach!!!!! also i notice more of a smell in washers when people only use liquid detergent and too much of it.
Tip: leave door open after every wash
clean with bleach and hot water regularly once a month
with no clothes on a normal cycle
alternate liquid detergent and powder (yes powder comes HE)
only use HE detergent
try these things and you will find your washer smelling like new again. but tthe trick is BLEACH and a lot of it. once you get a smell it takes a long time to get rid of it.
good luck and let me know if this helps

Spots on clothes

By spots I'm guessing that this is a permanent mark on the cloth. If that's the case, you are possibly putting concentrated liquid bleach into the is being added and causing the spots. Solution is to dilute the bleach or other concentrated cleaner. If you're adding it manually through a hopper...add it later in the cycle.

If the spots are may have a bearing leak into the machine. Repair is a big job.

Quenie, vinegar will not harm your washer at all. Place it in the detergent side of your dispenser and run a Hot wash cycle. Don't mix chemicals, though... if you choose to clean your machine with bleach, for instance, don't use additional cleaners along with it. Vinegar only, bleach only... you get the point.

You may want to run a "water only" Hot wash cycle with bleach (no clothing/towels) after your Son has finished his laundry. This may help alleviate your allergy problem.

For regular maintenance on your washer, you ought to try something like this. It'll keep your washer smelling great.

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.
