I am experiencing the same problem and someone just told me it is a leaky transmission and some models have replaceable seals otherwise you would have to replace the entire transmission. I'm not sure what would be more cost effective if you can't replace the seals. Good Luck!

Tips to clean sink mats


Usually sink mats get easily stained by tomatoe-based foods or oils, and the removal of those stains and greasiness is quite unpleasant.
Here are some tips to easily get your mats back to shape.

- One option is cleaning the mats with bleach. This process should remove about 90% of the stains, but will leave the mats a bit stiff. It also should always be done while wearing rubber gloves and in a well ventilated area.

- Another option is soaking the mats for 10 minutes in very hot water and dish soap and then scrubbing them clean.

- Putting them into the dishwasher with anti-stain or anti-grease soaps is also a good solution, and should work almost as well as the previous solution. They can also both be done, making the result even more satisfying.

- In addition to these methods, you can also make a paste of baking soda and white vinegar and use it as "soap" to scrub the stains. You can also let the paste sit on the stain for a bit, it should make it easier to remove the stain after.

Bleach stains on black jeans


Bleach doesn't stain ! it removes the dye from the fabric.
I would suggest trying to re dye the fabric with a black dye as Jeans material might be more successful .

Synthetic fabric is not as easy to re dye end up using a permanent black marker on Synthetic Shirt that I got bleach on. .

Washer has serious stink. It is a top loader and I do not see a lint trap.


Washer smells foul...this is often a build up of soap, water, too many chemicals and this has left a residue, and the mildew moves right in and it stinks. This builds up is often on the inside of the outer tank - picture help
Many times that this happens is when people use to much soap and then they only do laundry once a week.
One good solution to help your odor problem...it works well...in a top loader I recommend 2 cups of cascade and 2 cups of bleach, fill your machine with hot water and let it agitate. At the end of the agitation/wash cycle, let the machine sit and soak for about 10-15 minutes to work on your scum, then close the lid and let it complete. Next load run whites to be safe all bleach is out. This should help.
On some really bad odor problems, you may have to remove the inner basket to scrap off the build up from the inside of the outer tank. You may will need special tools to remove the inner basket. 
Fabric softener is also nasty for building up inside and under the agitator
It is recommended to use half to a quarter of the detergent that the package  recommends.
Other things that may help, leave the washer lid open between laundry days. Never cover your washing machine with those plastic covers. 
 
ODORS IN DUET HE3 & HE4 WASHERS CLEAN OUT PROCEDURE
NOTE: Make sure that you read these instructions completely before beginning the clean out process.
1. Open the washer door and remove any clothing or items from the washer.
2. Inspect the gray colored seal/bellow between the door opening and the basket for stained areas. Pull back the seal/bellow to inspect areas under the seal/bellow.
3. If stained areas are found, wipe down these areas of the bellows using the following procedure:
a) Mix a dilute solution of liquid chlorine bleach and water (3/4-cup bleach in
1 gallon of warm tap water).
b) Wipe the seal/bellow area with the dilute solution.
c) Let stand 5 minutes.
d) Wipe down area thoroughly with a dry cloth and let the washer interior air dry.
e) Please note:
- Do not use bleach at full strength for cleaning surfaces.
- The use of rubber gloves is recommended when cleaning for prolonged periods.
4. To begin the clean out cycle, do the following:
a) Open the washer door and remove any clothing or items from the washer.
b) Be sure door is closed.
c) Open the dispenser drawer and remove the detergent divider from the main wash detergent compartment. See the Use and Care Guide for instructions. No additives will be added at this time. You will be required to add them at a later step.
- For Whirlpool Duet, select the �Power� button.
- For Kenmore Elite HE products, move to the next step.
d) Select the �Normal� wash cycle.
e) Select the hottest wash water temperature available, (not all temperatures will be available).
f) Select the highest spin speed available.
g) Select the additional or 2nd Rinse option (if available).
h) Press and hold the �Start� key for 2 seconds. The door will lock and filling will begin. NOTE: The water will dispense for a moment, then the door will unlock and re-lock and the cycle will continue.
i) Once the filling has begun again, open the dispenser drawer and immediately add 1 cup liquid chlorine bleach to the main wash detergent compartment.
The liquid chlorine bleach should immediately flow through the dispenser.
NOTE: Do not add any detergent to this clean out cycle. Use of more than 1 cup of bleach per month will cause product damage over time. Addition of bleach without immediately starting the cycle will cause product damage over time.

Stains in my thermocast sink


Rinse after every use. Sanatize with Bleach once a month. Use a soft cloth or sponge and liquid soap to remove residue. Scratches can be buffed and polished with a liquid based auto polish to maintain High Gloss finish. Do not use abrasive cleaners which will dull the finish. If you have used the sink in a non-normal usage and stained it, it can not be repaired under most circumstances. If you have not voided the warranty, you may be eligible for a replacement from the company.

My whites are not comming clean and are not a bright white


I don't know if this is a solution to your particular problem but when we wash whites, first, we wash them twice,with hot water, second, we dont use bleach!!! (this will eventually yellow them). Third, we dont use liquid softner. For the whites we use a softner sheet in the dryer. Since we started to use this procedure I have noticed a marked decrease in areas such as under arm stains in white under shirts. I have some that are 2 years old and have no stains or yellowing like this. Hope this helps
