Your lip seal is leaking and the bearings are getting water in them,you need to get this fixed soon,because they can lock up if left too long like this and it will only get noisier and not better with time

Is there a filter in the machine that \i should be cleaning as i keep getting black bits on the clothes?


The black bits are scum flaking off from between the inner & outer bowls, usually more common with cold water wash. Place old towel in washer, fill washer to high level with hot water, add washing soda & or vinegar, let washer run to end of wash cycle, turn off & let it soak for around an hour, turn back on & let it go through cycle. Commercial washing machine cleaning products should also be availably in your supermarket / hardware stores. You may need to repeat process until no more gunk comes out.

When doing black clothing they come out with white stains all the time. I am not using fabric softener, also using liquid detergent. help


What you probably have is a build-up of scrud in the machine as a result of an interaction between the fabric softener and the detergent. This flakes off and marks the clothing.
Buy a commercially available cleaner for your machine for this purpose of do one or two cycles using a bottle of white vinegar in the tub without detergent. Clean the machine out doing another cycle using baking soda directly in the drum. Repeat this process if there are still any indications of scrud.
Take care that you use the correct amount of detergent in your machine according to load and water level and do a cleaning run about every 25 wash cycles to clear away any excess detergent that was not caught by the rinse.

Hi. I have a Kenmore Elite top-loading washer and in every wash load there are flakes of brown stuff, not rust but more like leaves. There does not seem to be anything wrong with the outflow. Thanks!


Run a few washes of rags or towels with plenty of BLEACH & VINEGAR (two quarts of white) a couple of times to remove most bacterial debris from your machine. There is no part of the machine that "creates" brown flakes, so it is either in the water inflow (check the water) and the way to see what is coming into the machine is to do a "load" without any clothes! Just have the tub fill and look at what fills.....Sounds like something under the tubs upper lip that's coming-off and into your tub during the wash and agitation cycles.

My lg Washing Machine WF-T853A is putting black rubbery chunks and flakes through every wash.. This has been happening for about 12 mths and is getting worse to the point where half the lint bags are full...


sorry to ask you this but are you sure the flakes are rubber? usually the black flakes are lint from the clothes. to help combat this problem try this.1- buy 2 pkts of bicarb of soda or baking soda, 2- select high water fill. 3- select hot water fill.4- pour soda into an empty machine. 5- shut the lid and push the start button. 6- let it fill and wash, let it wash for about 5 to 10 min"s , do not let the water drain.7- turn machine off after letting it wash for 5 to 10 min"s , and leave the water sit in the bowl overnight . 8- in the morning start cycle again and let it go thru complete cycle. this should get rid of most of the lint. you might have to do this twice depending on how dirty the plastic tank is. please reply 4 more help and good luck.

Flakes of dirt on washing


Is this perhaps a second hand machine or it has possibily been stored away for some time? When a washer dries out inside ( behind the washer bowl ) and is then put back in service, dirt from years of use caked on insides flakes away ( like a dry leaf crumbles) and re-enters the wash and can end up on washed clothing. The only way to stop this is complete removal of washer bowl , scrub and clean insides to remove caked on dirt - reassembly. problem fixed !
