Question about Hotpoint Washing Machines
Thanks for using FixYa. You have not provided the model # or stated whether it is front or top load. Therefore, I am providing you both the solutions. Please check the edge of the door seal, see if there is a lot of "gunk" there, this would cause grey marks on laundry and make it dirty. If it is a front load washer then try these steps--
You'll have to do a few maintenance washes to clear it out of the tub. Try these steps to remove the dirt, debris and odor from the washer—
This will clean your machine and get rid of the odor.
And, if it’s a top load washer then try these steps—
Remove the dispenser and spray with white vinegar. Then spray the agitator with it too. You can pretty much wipe it right out. Vinegar dissolves softener very quickly. The dispenser just wash out with warm water after the vinegar sits on it for a minute, and you hardly have to wipe at it at all. try adding bleach to the dispenser and clean it with a small brush. The dispenser will pull off from the agitator and you can run hot water in it from the sink. The agitator is not as easy but has a 1/2" bolt holding it to the shaft. Remove the bolt and pull up. But you can clean the whole washer with a cup of bleach and that will also clean the agitator. Now run a full tub of hot water and then add a cup of bleach with no soap. After the washer has filled up, then add another gallon of hot water and that will help to rinse out the residues that cause odors. then after that dont use too much soap and you wont have residue build up. Only use the smallest amount of soap that the cup has marked in it.
Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.
