DARK CLOTHES END UP WITH BLEACH DOT STAINS
Hi, I have a top loading Kenmore Elite washer (don't know model #) from
the year 2002. It has the automatic bleach dispenser. The problem is
that if someone has washed clothes with bleach sometime during the day
and someone else comes along and washes dark clothes, the clothes get
ruined with dot bleach stains. It appears that the bleach remains in
the washer. Any tips or do I need to buy a new washer? Any help would
be greatly appreciated. Thank you
V.C.My problem is similar to that which VCasabona
is having. Not just dots occur but often big splotches. It may not even
be just a colored load following whites on the same day but, on
occasion, it occurs on the next laundry day, a week later with the
first load that is not the whites with bleach. Also, my wife adds the
bleach to the filled washer (old school, I guess), rather than pouring
into the dispenser. My water pressure, which is not at issue, is not
what I need to address to remedy the situation. I have noted that the
ledge that is part of the floating tub had some build-up of deposits,
some of which may have been bleach. These I've reached in with damp
cloths and removed as best I can. I've run full, empty loads through
hoping this would flush out any lingering bleach. Because the occurrences run intermittently
from infrequently to frequently I cannot be sure if any of my attempts
to remedy the problem are having any effect. I've guessed at the model
# of the Kenmore top load washer we own since Dec of 1999
Sounds like some water is remaining in the tub after the pump gets done emptying the washer.
So its the pump!
The Kenmore Elite is a good washer and I believe worth fixing!
Unless the cost is half the price of the cost of a replacement.
Please write me a good rating before you sign off.
