My clothes are coming out dirty with lint build up from the washing machine- kelvinator smart drive 053, have undone and cleaned centre- is there a trap underneath anywhere that may be full or blocked?


9 WASH PERFORMANCE INFORMATION
9.1 Creasing
Creasing can be caused by over loading the washer or the dryer. Permanent Press or Delicate
cycles have been designed to minimise creasing as they use a lower spin speed. Do not leave wet clothes to sit in the washer or laundry basket.
9.2 Soiling
Soiling is the result of insufficient detergent for the load. White clothes are better washed
separately. Separate lightly and heavily soiled items, as clothes can pick up soil from dirty wash water. Cold water below 68oF / 20 oC does not wash effectively. Select the wash temperature according to soil type. For example, blood and mud are better washed in cold water, while sweat and oil based soil wash better in warmer water. Loads made up of articles of varying sizes will wash better (e.g. full loads of sheets may not wash that well). Hard water requires more detergent than soft water.
9.3 Linting
Wash lint givers (eg. towels, flannelette sheets) separately from lint collectors (eg. synthetic
fabrics). Over loading the washer can increase the likelihood of linting. Insufficient detergent for the load can increase linting as there will not be enough detergent to hold the lint in suspension. Over drying synthetic fabrics in a dryer can cause a build-up of static electricity and result in the fabrics attracting lint.
9.4 Detergent Residue
Over loading the washer can result in detergent residue being caught in the creases of the fabrics.
If this occurs, decrease the load size. Some detergents need to be pre-dissolved. Check the instructions for the detergent. Cold ambient temperatures, cold washes or short agitation times may not let the detergent dissolve properly. In these cases pre-dissolve the detergent. Overdosing of detergent can also cause residue when foam breaks down and will show as white specs on the clothing. Poor quality detergents can result in residue.
9.5 Black Marks on Clothes
A build up caused by the interaction of fabric softener and detergent (scrud) can flake off and mark
clothes. Do not use too much fabric softener, maximum 75cc. If this is a problem, it is recommended that the machine is periodically filled with hot water, plus 1-2 cups of dishwasher powder and left to soak.
9.6 Grey Marks on Clothes
Not enough detergent for the amount of soil on the clothes can result in grey marks on clothes. If
this is a problem it is recommended that the machine be periodically filled with hot water, plus detergent and left to soak.
9.7 Dye Transfer
Wash and dry non-colorfast clothes separately. Non colorfast clothes left sitting in a washer or
laundry basket can transfer dye to other clothes.
9.8 Tangling
Washing with too much water (i.e. under loading) can cause the clothes to tangle around each
other. Do not load the machine by wrapping clothes around the agitator.

I have front loader washing machine and the rubber has got mould and having difficulty in removing the black mould


  • Saturate an old cloth with white vinegar. Alternatively, you might use petroleum jelly on the cloth to remove the mold.Pull the gasket out gently with your hands to reveal the mold and mildew buildup inside the folds of the gasket.Wipe the mold away from the gasket with the cloth. Continue working to wipe away all mold from the folds of the rubber gasket.Dry the folds of the gasket with a dry cloth when you finish removing the mold.Repeat this procedure at least once per month to prevent mold and mildew from forming. If you notice mold occurring more frequently, clean it off when you see it.


  • Tips for Preventing Mold & Smelly Problems:
    • Always leave the door and dispenser unit slightly ajar after the laundry is done. Front-load washers and the detergent/softener dispenser drawer must dry out.
    • Never leave a wet washload in the washer overnight; remove it when the washing cycle is complete and leave the door open.
    • After a load is done, always rotate the drum with your hand to see and remove all items. Some could be sticking to top or sides of the washer drum.
    • Use softener sheets in the dryer instead of liquid softeners in the washer.
    • Liquid detergents may leave less residue than powdered formulas which may not dissolve properly.
    • Use less than the recommended detergent level for your load. Too much detergent can cause a residue build up. Experiment until you find a minimum measurement that delivers a clean wash. This is also a money saver.
    • Occasionally wash some loads such as whites, linen and towels in warm or hot water to help flush out wash residue.
    • Always clean your washer as per your product manual. High efficiency front-load models have a cleaning cycle and it's imperative that you periodically run this cycle as directed.
    • Check the gasket just inside the door opening and remove any visible debris. You can also wipe it to speed the drying process.
    • Always use HE detergents with high efficiency front-load washers. Specially marked HE laundry detergent is low sudsing and is recommended for these low-water washers.
    • If this advice was helpful a vote with the thumbs up would be appreciated. Thanks.

    I want to know what causes the white spots on my colored clothes? It looks patchy on them


    It's probably old power residue this will be washed of from around the drum where you can't see and will be more noticable on darks clothes than whites. Although on whites it can sometimes appear as grey marks. Best solution would be a washer cleaner and then soda chrystals once a month to keep it in tip top condition.

    Clothes sometimes have a sour smell to them after a wash cycle, already checked for mold in and around door gasket and found none. any ideas?


    The bad news is that this is a fairly common problem for front load high efficiency washers. The good news is that there is a solution. First the facts. Using less water means you need to use less detergent. The new washers need to use HE detergent which is low sudsing. Use a very small amount and go by what is on the bottle or box of soap and even then reduce it a bit.

    A residue can build up hidden between the drum and the basket. This residue is a combination of lint, detergent any softeners etc.

    To remove the residue and odors that come with it, run a cycle with no clothes using the hottest water possible, usually a Whitest Whites or Heavy duty or something like that. In the tub put a pellet of 'Affresh' or a dose of 'Smelly Washer' both of these products are designed to remove the source of the odors. You can purchase these at most retailers like Target, Lowes, grocery stores etc near the laundry detergent. Do this once a month. If practical leave the washer door open when not in use, that will help air flow through there.

    Washer makes clothes smell like dog


    Hello there:
    please follow these simple steps
    Instructions Things You'll Need:
    1. Step 1 Balance your washing machine. Standing water breeds mildew and mold. A washing machine that isn't level to the ground stands a higher chance of not draining completely. Take a level and place it on the top of the machine along the front from side to side and then again along the side from front to back. If the machine is very off, you can adjust the feet to compensate or add something under one of the feet if it is not flat against the ground. Portable washing machines are especially prone to have standing water because they are moved around and not leveled each time.
    2. Step 2 Promptly remove your clothes at the end of a wash cycle. If you regularly leave the damp clothes in the washing machine for an extended period at the end of the cycle, you will have mildew in your clothes and your machine. The same is true if you put clean clothes in the dryer and they are not completely dry when the cycle ends and you don't go back for a few days to pull them out. Damp clothes in an enclosed space for days will mildew.
    3. Step 3 Leave your washing machine door open in between uses which gives the machine the opportunity to fully dry out.
    4. Step 4 Use white distilled vinegar in an empty machine. Run a load with only hot water and two cups of vinegar to clean out the machine and freshen the scent. Vinegar naturally eliminates odors and reduces the buildup of soap residue in the washer which contributes to mildew development. You can also add baking soda and/or bleach to the load for both their sanitizing properties as well as assisting in ridding the smell of mildew.
    5. Step 5 Regularly use vinegar when you wash your clothes. Add 1 cup of white distilled vinegar to the last rinse cycle. Vinegar has acidic properties but it is mild enough that it will not harm your fabric. It does dissolve alkalines in laundry detergent which makes for cleaner and softer clothes. The reduction of detergent buildup in your machine will help to also reduce the incidence of mildew.
    6. Step 6 If you have a front load washer, they are particularly prone to mildew and mold. Follow the manufacturers suggestion as to how much and what type of detergent should be used. It is generally less than the traditional top load washing machines. Once again, additional soap residue helps to breed mold and mildew. Also, pull the seals back from around the door and make sure there isn't a build up underneath them that needs to be cleaned out.
    7. Step 7 Finally, if you have done all of the above and nothing seems to work there are commercial products available that are recommended.

    Fine Gray Residue at End of Wash


    Probably residue that has built-up. There is now a front-load cleaner that is sold in most all stores; try it and see if that helps out. You use it just like detergent, but it is specifically for the washer insides. Thanks, please leave feedback or contact me again for more info if you need it.
