Question about Washing Machines
Can you please tell me what I must do to get black gungy stuff out of my washing machine. We have run it on the hot cycle about 3 times, and still the little pieces of black bits keep coming back. They are not smelly, but seems to be something made up of dirt from the washing. It is a Samsung Toploader SW61ASP
I ran a hot wash, full cycle and added Domestos to the water. This really loosened it. It is less now and machine looks and smells alot cleaner. I have just run a wash containing CLR which I purchased in the supermarket cleaning isle - it is a scale remover. I followed the directions on the bottle for washing machines. Machine looks even better now. There are less gunky bits (virtually none in fact) in the barrel and I am hoping next wash will see virtually none on my washing! The black stuff is really revolting and I agree it is alot like very thin rubber but I am quite sure it is buildup. I have been using lots of fabric softener and this is when my probs began! I am going to cease using it altogether!

I have this problem too and my machine is only 10 months old. Phoned Samsung and they say it is a build up from the fabric softner and was told to fill my machine with hot water and then put citric acid in the machine over night. They say I have to do this several times before it will be fully cleared.

Thanks. We got really desperate and ran a very hot wash about 5 times, and finally got rid of it. I will remember the vinegar and Napisan trick if it ever happens again.
