Ken more washer leaves dirty marks on clothes


Pull the agitator out and clean the inside of it and the area of the tub that it covers. A buildup of crud won't be removed by simply washing out the machine. Rinsing out a frying pan will get a lot of the dirt out but, it must be properly washed to get it all.

My 4 year old roper washer leaves grease on clothes. On spin cycle the machine makes a screaching noise, and the clothes don't spin dry.


Possible that the belt is slipping and also there is some issue with the agitator as the gaps within seems to bring up the dirt or grease mix to the clothes.
So it is important to remove the panel and check the play on the belt, replace if the play is high and check if the agitator bearings are worn out. If so the agitator assembly must be taken out and checked.

After theclothes are washed, there are large black stains all over the clothes. Like large blotchy oil stains.


Possible that the machine needs a clean up or there is some dirt which can be flushed back from the drain or the washer agitators. So best is to try for a full clean up on the machine and check again.

My maytag washer is throwing off a musty stentch. What should I do about this? It is stinking up my laundry room and the entrance to my condo.


There is a soap buildup underneath your agitator. Look for a screw on the outside of your agitator just above the lower large part with the agitatotr blades. Memory is fading but it is either a 5/16 or 1/4 ince socket that will be required to remove the screw. Once the screw is removed simply lift the agitator out then begin cleaning the tub with PLASTIC bladed putty knife. As for the agitator use something like Mr Muscle or Eliminate to clean the botttom and inside of the agitator itself. (any product that will remove soap or calcium buildup) \You can also use those same products to clean what is still on the top face of the inside bottom of your wash tub. Once you finish cleaning simply align the splines on the agitator and re-install the screw. You will NOT damage your machine running it empty. Make sure you run at least a full rinse cycle before washing clothes again as there will be some residue that will need to be washed out of your machine. Once you install the agitator push the tub stiffly in 90 deg quadrants and look at the top of your wash tub cover. Soap build up in that area can also result in an odor. The is something you can do yourself. Good Luck.

Dirt left in creases after washing clothes. Clothes never look clean


Too many clothes in the load , if it says 5lb then that is the maximum you should fill it with otherwise the clothes do not seperate as they are being agitated

Also

Not enough detergent (Try the old powder types)

Hard Water area (Use a small amount of Washing Soda)

Water level too low , use add water button if fitted

My kenmore washer leaves fleece and dirt on my clothes always


Nwanne,
It truly sounds like you have something in the washer that may be trapped.
I would remove the lint trap and make certain it is cleaned. Then check under the rim of the washer between the upper tub and the upper seal area. And lastly, check between the agitator bottom and the tub.
There really isn't any part of the washing machine that will produce "fleece" so I believe you have an article of clothing that is trapped.
Good luck and let me know.
Regards

My Whirlpool Calypso top loading washer (purchased in June of 2002) is starting to leave brown or dirt colored marks on clothing and sheets (I think they are permanent!) - I don't see any obvious place...


Run the washer empty with vinegar on the hottest, longest cycle. Usually this is caused from fabric softener and liquid detergent build up. Use powder detergent only and don't use cold water to wash in all the time. Only use cold water for your bright, finer cloths. Cold water use causes detergent build up.

You can go to www.shop.washermd.com and there is a downloadable tutorial for removing the agitator. You also may need to replace the agitator dogs. Dave

Agitator - is it working right?


there is slipping in the transmission. older machines used a pair of electrical solenoids to shift between spin and agitate. newer machines use the motor direction to engage the transmission for agitate and reverses for empty and spin. GE service phone: 1-800-848-7620
