You have a chip in your inner tub where yor clothes are washing. Find the spot and get some porcelain repair at the hardware store and cover the chipped spot.

I purchased the Kenmore Elite washer approximately five years ago. I have had no problems with it operating. However, since purchasing this washer I have ruined almost everything white I owned and avoid...


There has been many reports of complaints regarding this problem and it was found out that the gray spots on white clothing are caused by the fabric softener. The Kenmore Elite is a "highly efficient" machine that it uses very minimal amount water when washing and rinsing. The minimal use of water results in the fabric softener not being diluted completely and eventually makes gray spots on white clothing. The ridiculous solution to this problem, as Sears "advised" is not using fabric softener for white clothing. But you may also try putting the fabric softener in a small plastic bowl just enough to hold it and place it inside the machine prior to the final rinse. Using only the suggested amount of detergent and avoiding the use of detergent powder with speckles reduces the possibility spot occurrences in your while clothing.

When I take the clothes out of the machine some of the items have brown dirty strips. What is the cause of this?


mold or rust in the lower portion of the unit?
Try filling the washer slightlyBEFORE putting the clothes in. I know some washers will lock out the door after filling so you will have to feel this one out.
Good luck and be careful!

Im getting spots on my clothes when they come out of the wash and they wont wash out. We dont have oily clothes and use the right about of detergent and softner. What would cause the oil looking spots...


Those spots are the results of undissolved soaps built up in the machine over a period of time. Very possibly to much soap is being used on each wash as well. It creates a thick film around the inner drum that eventually breaks away and deposits itself on the clothes in small quantities. To remove, that could be costly, so the next best thing to do would be to run at least 2 hot washes a day without clothes until soap eventually dissolves.It will take a period of time.until particles clear.

Rust in Kenmore washed clothes


Sounds like you have a bad drum bearing. I would guess that it's grees rather than rust although it will look like rust.

Spots on clothes


By spots I'm guessing that this is a permanent mark on the cloth. If that's the case, you are possibly putting concentrated liquid bleach into the machine...it is being added and causing the spots. Solution is to dilute the bleach or other concentrated cleaner. If you're adding it manually through a hopper...add it later in the cycle.

If the spots are black...you may have a bearing leak into the machine. Repair is a big job.

Wasing machine leaves rust spots on clothes.


check the basket of the machine for rust spots on the basket if thats the case the basket should have a 10 year warranty depending on the age marks are either caused from that or the dryer. if its frigidaire the dryer then the front seals probably need to be changed make sure to find out exactly which machine its coming from
