Use an oxygen-based bleach first--if not much better, try a chlorine-based bleach. Hot water works better than cold water. Try using a different detergent as well. Do these things one at a time to find which produces superior results. Hope this helps!

All our whites are now greys washing with our GE WCVH6260


graying of clothes is usualy caused by / serveral things . too much soap / washer not rinsing properly / and gas dryers. change your dergt. use one with a bleach in it . and use 2nd rinse ( cold water ) make sure washer drains wash water completly . do this by cking the drain pump clean out .. if cloged it will slow the drain cycle and you will be rinsing with the wash water . also use H E dergt. . if dergt is still in clothes when drying this turns nylon yellow and whites gray .. .also seperate colors . and whites .. **** ..

Whites don't get clean in front loading washing machine


I have the same problem and I'm really aggrevated that I paid alot of $$ for something that doesn't do the job it was purchased to do! I'm going to look at replacing it with a top loader. I think LG should take responsibility for selling a bad product.

Clothes come out with stains on them


I had a similar problem with my Kenmore front loader. Turned out that the rubber lining around the door was trapping dirty, soapy water causing a nasty residue to collect. That residue got onto the clothes. I cleaned the rubber liner and now keep the washer door open between uses. I still occasionally wipe down the rubber liner with a wet rag. Problem seems to have been solved.

Whites are not white


This is from not enough HOT loads.

Fatty deposits gather between the basket and tub during COLD washes.

Then they are being released in large numbers when you do your whites on HOT.

It is recommended to do 1 HOT load per week.

Do an empty load with some degreaser added (like Goo-Gone) on the fullest/hottest setting you have.

Clothes are not clean How can I take washer aprt to clean soap dispenser???


Make sure you are washing at the correct temp, and that you have the correct prog selected for what you are washing. and that you have suficient powder and or detergent in. Check to see if the water is getting hot, because if it is not , then the heater may not be working, and then your clothes will not be clean.
Hope this helps with your prob.
Plz rate my solution.
Thanks.

LG washer (WM0532HW) whites turning dingy grey


I too have a front load washer. The problem is that it's not washing off all the soap suds. Try this. After a complete cycle, soak the clean clothes in a container w/ water and you'll see there's still soap suds coming out of the clothes. I tried running it several wash cycles and there was still soap left on the clothes. I think, it's mfg defect. We should all complain to the maker of the machines.

Yellowing Whites!


Have you checked your water? It may be hard water minerals. You should call your water company. Let them know whats going on and have them come test your water.
