Question about Fisher Paykel EcoSmart GWL15

1 Answer

GWL15 model sometimes leaves black marks on clothes

This usually only happens every other month or so. The last time I had washed flannel sheets, then a mattress cover, then some velour items. The velour items had black all over them. I have checked with the store, the 24 hour hotline, the factory and get a different answer every time. I have been using Gain HE liquid detergent, no fabric softner and only about a 1/2 inch of detergent in the cap (per their instruction). Then a month or so later, it will happen again! Have ruined several items because of this!

    I used mostly warm washes. It was still under warranty so the company swapped it out. Thank you for your help.

I have a fisher&paykel washing machine every time l wash my clothes it leaves Dirty marks on my clothes I have pulled out the barrel and cleaned it and put it back together and it still leaves marks


With no clothes in the machine, Do a long hot wash, add some bleach, stop using fabric softener. Cut down on soap usage. This should clean out the machine. If it happens again, there may be a mechanical problem which is allowing grease or oil into the machine.

IWL16 mildew or black specks on clothers


could just need a good clean. these machines remove dirt from clothes very well, but it can build up on the inside of the outer. disconnect power, remove top (two screws under covers under lid), remove top bowl ring (8 clips) remove agitator (1 screw deep inside) remove inner bowl. scrub it. also trying a hot wash with some cleaning product to flush the machine every couple months can stop this happening in the future.

Grease like stains on clothing after washing


You have to clean the filter once a month. Which located lower left. Do a tub cleanse. Rinse extra. That will clear your problem. I have had the same issue and many repairmen and that was the answer. As long as I clean it than grease marks

LG Washing machine leaks from the bottom when large items such as flannel sheets are placed in the machine. It does not leak at any other time but I had water all over the floor twice when I tried to wash...


Water may be working its way up and over the inner wash tub with the larger items. Ensure that you are not overloadinig the washer. You may want to contact an appliance service company.

My washer leaves black marks on my clothes. I do not use fabric softners


Do you mean Black, really black marks? Perhaps dark brown.

Some marks comes from moldy seals, other marks comes from leaking gears from the machine. Examine the marks, check if those marks are oily or not.

Clothes are left with a residue on them. I use


Do you use a liquid fabric softner also ? Marks are usually left on clothes from undisolved fabric softner . Try using dryer sheets instead of washer softner .

Black marks on clothes


I had a similar problem. We has placed the waste water hose into an old tub next the machine. The plug hole int he sink has become blocked with lint. When the washing maching was pumping water into the tub, the tub would fill with water, which would rise a level higher than the washing machine waste hose. What this appeared to do was cause the machine not to be able to properly pump out water, leaving this horrible back stuff in the wash which would end up all over the wash. Ensuring the plub hole in the tub was clear solved the problem immediately!
