Question about Whirlpool LSR7333 Top Load Washer

2 Answers

Leaves My washer works fine, but every other load or so I find a few stains that look like oil or coffee on only one piece of clothing in the load. There are usually two or three stains about an inch or two across, and grouped together. I've tried bleaching them out and used different stain removers, but nothing will remove the stain short of a pair of scissors. I also have a Whirlpool dryer m/n LGR4634PQ0, but I think the problem is oil based which points to the washer. (The stains were not there before washing.)

    I have the same problem with the Ge profile washer/dryer. Every other load comes out with a few peices of clothing with stains that look like oil or grease. There is nothing in my laundry that should cause such a stain. This continued problem has caused us to lose alot of money worth of nice clothing. I'm not sure if it's a washer problem or a dryer problem. Does anyone have this problem or know how to fix it?

There's a chance that clothes are getting under your agitator and rubbing on the shaft. It's dirty there. Feel under the agitator. If you can get fingers under it past one knuckle(guy's fingers), clothes just might get there too. The only fix is probably a new agitator. Compare the old one with a new one, see if the new one is lower. Agitators come off easy, a bolt is under the Downy dispenser, pull the plastic cover up. Check your agitator dogs while you're there. There's a site here where you can get new ones.

With the exeption of something you mistakenly left in your clothing and wound up in the washer, not likely stains are from there , most of the time they do come from the dryer, try grabbin an old white rag nad runnig it around hte fron of hte dryer drum and then tyr the rear where the drum meets the back bulkhead. usually leavs brownish streks smome what curved 2-3 inches log. its from hte felt hte supposed to seal the drum. its either wearing thin, or a glide has worn away causing the issue

OIL STAIN ON A CLOTHES out of washing machine E12477


Are they getting the oil stain from the washing machine? If so, you need to get a tech out to inspect your washing machine. If you are putting oily clothes into the washing machine hoping it will come out, it's too late, you need to pre-wash with Shout or Tide to remove oils and grease. The more you wash and dry it the deeper the stain will set. Sounds like you need to throw those clothes away.

Washer leaves stains on clothing


Many times when we cook in the kitchen, we get splattered with oils that aren't easily visible. Very often these oil spots pick up dirt from the wash water. These stains don't usually get noticed until after the clothes have been dried. The best thing to do is to rub detergent or stain remover right on these spots and let them sit about half an hour. Then rewash the clothes in as hot water as the material can take afterwards.

CLOTHES COMING OUT OF WASHER WITH DARK STAINS


Hi Lynn, this is AP.

I understand you are seeing stains and lint on your clothes once removed from your top load washer, model FWS833A. There could be several culprits causing this to happen. To confirm, are the stains not being removed during cycle or do you believe the washer is the cause of the stains? If you believe the stains are being caused from the washer it could possibly be undiluted liquid fabric softener poured directly on fabric. Something more serious could be a broken transmission causing oil to leak in the tub.

There are some basic troubleshooting tips for lint to check such as undissolved detergent can leave residue on clothing. Separate clothing items which shed lint from items which attract lint. Permanent press, synthetic, knit and corduroy items will pick up lint from towels, rugs and chenille bedspreads. Make sure to Use correct amount of detergent, water temperature and water level.

There are some simple troubleshooting tips listed above and in your owner's manual, if you find they do not resolve your concern I would recommend contacting a local authorized technician to inspect the washer.

Thanks,

Washer leaves brown stains on clothing, looks like some kind of oil stain or something not from clothing


The only oil would come from your rear bearing assy. Its a very expensive repair. I know the units not that old but I wouldnt waste a service call on it unless they are giving free estimates (which most co.s are not). Its gonna need the rear bearing and back half of the tub. Low end estimate will probably well over half the cost of the unit. Hope this helps _MJ_

OIl stains on clothes with front loading LG washer


ftr loader washers do not have any oil, my guess would be you are using fabric softner . that can stain clothes. dilute with water, they are very concentraded. or your dispenser may not be working properly and not releasing softner at the proper time.i would run a clean cycle through it. meaning set on a hot wash- regular cycle no clothes and run wirth bleach in bleach disenser. do this every other month to keep washer clean hope this helps. make sure its not happening in the dryer , the dryer has frt and rear seals that go bad and start leaving marks on clothes and catching them in beteween the tub.

My Frigidaire Washer Leaves Stains all over our clothes


Since this happened from day 1, your water may be the problem. Do you have well water? If so, get a softener system. This will get rid of the iron, which is responsible for rust stains. I really doubt that a new machine would cause rust or grease.

Why didn't you do something five years ago when you first noticed this? It will be much more difficult to get a resolution from the manufacturer after5 years.
