Hello. The darkening of aluminum pans is a natural occurrence known as oxidation. This is due to the chemical reaction between between metal and air and water. To remove this dark layer use an aluminum cleaner such as "Barkeeper's Friend". This product also works via a chemical reaction, I highly recommend it. J.

Large dark brown spots appearing after washing


Normally a washer does not cause a staining problem, but If something inside the washer has rusted, it could. I would check your water tank. Drain water from the drain cock at the bottom of the tank, and see how dirty it is. If it is dirty, you need to drain the water until it is almost clear.

My Kenmore Elite Top-Load Series 700 Washer leaves streaks on clothing. It looks like dusty powder. I use liquid HE detergent. It was a normal cycle of dark clothes, not heavily soiled or dirty. Also


THE stains on your clothing especially on whites are most likely due to a top seal failure on your transmission. transmission leaking oil. if the clothing affected or the stain can be removed with a solvent like gas, kerosene, paint thinner repair on washer will exed the value .... if the streaks or stains can be removed with a water soluble detergent then the stains are caused by the soap and or hard water deposits in your washer . then the solution to cut way down on soap usage in your washer and or running an acid wash (soap is alkaline acid will dissolve it . make sure not to over solvent your clothes and to rinse all solvents out completely . be careful !!!! a solvent soaked t-shirt bunched up and left in tightly sealed plastic bag WILL CATCH ON FIRE!!!!

Stains are one of those things that no two problems are every the same cause. Generally, if it an oily stain then you take a look at something like the transmission. If it is a rubber type of stain the the rubber washer sealing the shaft. Or if it is rusty colored then metal metal somewhere in the wash tub that is rusting.

Sorry, wish there was somehow to tell you where exactly to look, but there just isn't.

Aluminum pans come out stained with a dark residue.


The aluminium reacts with the solution being used. Change the detergent making sure it can be used with aluminium.

Dark greasy stains after washing


When the seal starts to fail, this oil floats up into the wash water
in the form of small black drops. The stains are almost impossible
to remove from clothing. Also, as the oil is leaking up, hot soapy
water is leaking down into the transmission, which will eventually
cause it to fail.

The seal wont be difficult to replace,but to get access to it you have to
basically disassemble the whole machine. The hardest part was pulling the agitator off the shaft - I
use a slide hammer puller. I'd start by pulling the agitator off and
see if you can access the transmission seal that way - perhaps yours
will be easier than mine was.

Try some hydrocarbon solvent like acetone (on the glass only).

This may be a burned carbon. It can occur from a pan bottom that has a little grease.

Another possibility is using an aluminum pan. If that MIGHT be the cause, use a mix of electric dishwasher detergent and water. WEAR RUBBER gloves as it is very caustic.

I am getting stains on my dark clothes that look like oil stains.


Check that the dispenser is clean, it may be gunged up with black gunge, use soda crystals and put machine on hottest wash. If all is clean it could be down to seal gone in drum letting grease into system. Good luck, let me know how it goes.

The washer is leaving a dark stain on all of my white clothes


the dark stains are caused by mold build up on the boot of the washer, the e70 may be a pump error. you need to wet a cloth with bleach and then wipe of the mold builldup on the boot, this should solve that problem.

I have a brown colored stain in the bottom of my white franke white fireclay sink (maybe coffee stain, not sure) I can't get it clean with regular hand soap which is what franke told me to clean the sink...


I used Cerama Bryte for the dark colored stain, I left it on for about 5 minutes and then rubbed it clean, the stain is gone. Now I tried it on the small aluminum scratch marks, no thank you, it couldn't help that problem. Still seeking a solution. Thanks

I had the same problem, and it turns out that it is NOT the seal. It is the liquid fabric softener. The fabric softener dispenser needs to be cleaned periodically or it gets a black waxy, goopy, build up. It is this same buildup that ends up staining your clothes with dark brown or black stains. Just remove the dispenser and wash it our very well and the problem will be gone.
