I have a fisher&paykel washing machine every time l wash my clothes it leaves Dirty marks on my clothes I have pulled out the barrel and cleaned it and put it back together and it still leaves marks


With no clothes in the machine, Do a long hot wash, add some bleach, stop using fabric softener. Cut down on soap usage. This should clean out the machine. If it happens again, there may be a mechanical problem which is allowing grease or oil into the machine.

How to start clean me cycle ?


Switch to Powdered Detergent and you wont have to clean your washer. Liquids leave a smelly, corrosive residue on the inside of the machine, use only Powder and leave the lid up when not in use to defeat the slime!

Fisher and paykel does Epsom salts work in the rinse water


Hi! Have you completed a "Clean Up" cycle? It should prompt you every 100 washes to do a clean up - it should be under the "Lifestyle" menu. When you do it, I suggest you use OXY soaker (1 whole Cup) instead of normal detergent and make sure it is all HOT water. It soaks for 4 hours, but is very good at cleaning the bowl and workings to stop brown marks on your clothes and towels

these also need replacing at the same time.

My Fisher and Paykel Aquasmart is leaving white marks on my clothes. I am using the correct washing liquid, so how can I fix this? I am sick of re-washing half of my clothes


WASH PERFORMANCE INFORMATION
12.1 Creasing
Creasing can be caused by over loading SmartDrive or the dryer. Permanent Press or Delicate
cycles have been designed to minimise creasing as they use a lower spin speed. Do not leave wet
clothes to sit in the washer or laundry basket.
12.2 Soiling
Soiling is the result of insufficient detergent for the load. White clothes are better washed
separately. Separate lightly and heavily soiled items, as clothes can pick up soil from dirty wash
water. Cold water below 20oC does not wash effectively. Select the wash temperature according
to soil type. For example, blood and mud are better washed in cold water, while sweat and oil
based soil wash better in warmer water. Loads made up of articles of varying sizes will wash
better (e.g. full loads of sheets may not wash that well). Hard water requires more detergent than
soft water.
12.3 Linting
Wash lint givers (eg. towels, flannelette sheets) separately from lint collectors (eg. synthetic
fabrics). Over loading SmartDrive can increase the likelihood of linting. Insufficient detergent for
the load can increase linting as there will not be enough detergent to hold the lint in suspension.
Over drying synthetic fabrics in a dryer can cause a build-up of static electricity and result in the
fabrics attracting lint.
12.4 Detergent Residue
Over loading SmartDrive can result in detergent residue being caught in the creases of the
fabrics. If this occurs, decrease the load size. Some detergents need to be pre-dissolved. Check
the instructions for the detergent. Cold ambient temperatures, cold washes or short agitation times
may not let the detergent dissolve properly. In these cases pre-dissolve the detergent.
Overdosing of detergent can also cause residue when foam breaks down and will show as white
specs on the clothing. Poor quality detergents can result in residue.
12.5 Black Marks on Clothes
A build up caused by the interaction of fabric softener and detergent (scrud) can flake off and mark
clothes. Do not use too much fabric softener, maximum 75cc. If this is a problem, it is
recommended that SmartDrive is periodically filled with hot water, plus 1-2 cups of dishwasher
powder and left to soak.
12.6 Grey Marks on Clothes
Not enough detergent for the amount of soil on the clothes can result in grey marks on clothes. If
this is a problem it is recommended that SmartDrive is periodically filled with hot water, plus
detergent and left to soak.
12.7 Dye Transfer
Wash and dry non-colourfast clothes separately. Non colourfast clothes left sitting in a washer or
laundry basket can transfer dye to other clothes.
12.8 Tangling
Washing with too much water (i.e. under loading) can cause the clothes to tangle around each
other. Do not load SmartDrive by wrapping clothes around the agitator.

My washer leaves black marks on my clothes. I do not use fabric softners


Do you mean Black, really black marks? Perhaps dark brown.

Some marks comes from moldy seals, other marks comes from leaking gears from the machine. Examine the marks, check if those marks are oily or not.
