The rear seal and the rear waher drum bearing is defective, this allows grease to get into the washer and that is what is getting on the clothes

f you use cold water wash and rinses regularly it may have an accumulation of un-dissolved detergent, dirt/grime and body oils stuck on the inside wall of the outer tub. When washing whites I assume that you are using Hot water and it could be causing some of the accumulation to break loose in small clumps and re-depositing on the clothes.

Leaving brown stains on clothes, messing them up,


If it isn't rust, I suspect cotton can decompose if moist for a long time (in the laundry or machine), causing brown spots. In that case, the spots probably cannot be removed. Or can they?

Washer is leaving dirty spots on clothes


If you use fabric softener it may be from the softener. Dilute your softener 50% before pouring it in.

Brown dirt coming out of steam iron


You're seeing hard water deposits and maybe a little rust. Use some CLR and pour in the iron and let it sit with it off. Shake it a bit and let it clean it all out, then rinse with clean water. (Vinegar will work too)

Brown stains are likely from the felt seal. The adhesive used from the factory disintegrate over time, and when you replace the felt - use some silicone instead.

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.

Clothes are dirtier after washing...


The problem with your front load washer is a broken rear bearing. If you remove the rear panel, you will see brown "gunk" all over.
If you want to repair it on your own, order this:

6 years old hoover washer dryer. Not all, but some light colored tee shirts coming out with what appears to be oily spots. Tried bleach and dishwater tablet as suggested by another forum, but to no avail....


Hi there monobloc,

I've gone through this too. Dishwashing liquid soap, specifically with grease cutting properties. It does take a few cycles to clean it all out though.
