Grey, greasy particles cling to washed laundry.
Insufficient amounts of detergent were used to break down the particles of grease in heavily soiled laundry.
– Add more detergent.
– Before washing the next
load run a Cottons 95°C
program with powder
detergent but without a load.

I want to know what causes the white spots on my colored clothes? It looks patchy on them


It's probably old power residue this will be washed of from around the drum where you can't see and will be more noticable on darks clothes than whites. Although on whites it can sometimes appear as grey marks. Best solution would be a washer cleaner and then soda chrystals once a month to keep it in tip top condition.

Grey spots on our white clothes after wash


do you use affresh to clean your front loader? deposits of soap and other such things can be stuck around the inside tub of your washer. try this porduct out it works great on all front loaders use hot water with the affresh pellet with no clothes and run the machine through a cycle this also helps with any stagnant water smells also have you cleaned out your pump lately. * note remeber to put the pellet on the inside of the machine not in the soap dispenser

Clothes come out of washer and have been getting progressively dingier and the whites are now grey..this is on a community well with potable water


If your neighbors are having the same problems, then you may be dealing with hard water deposits--the usual fix is to install a water softener, use proper bleaches, and hot water. It may help to run a cycle without clothes, and use detergent, hot water, and white vinegar. Hope this helps!

Clothes are grey not white at 95 degrees


never do a 95 degrees white wash after a dark wash!!

The discolouration comes from the fact that water is never completely drained from the machine, and as such if there is any dye from a previous 'dark wash' you will be unintentionally washing dye into your whites.

Use colour catching or whitening products to reduce/ eleminate this

Clothes come out with stains on them


I had a similar problem with my Kenmore front loader. Turned out that the rubber lining around the door was trapping dirty, soapy water causing a nasty residue to collect. That residue got onto the clothes. I cleaned the rubber liner and now keep the washer door open between uses. I still occasionally wipe down the rubber liner with a wet rag. Problem seems to have been solved.

Maytag Nepturn TL FAV6800 Grey spots/debris on clothing


Hello davidsonrepl,

I was waiting with someone with more experience to post back on your issue. I haven't experienced this issue it but I would not rule out a transmission seal failure causing your oily grey substance in the wash tub. If you want to investigate further you can get the Service Manual from here

http://www.fixya.com/support/r1655507-found_service_manual_neptune_top_load

take a look at page 38 and on and see if you feel OK with a tear down to the transmission.

Washer is turning my white clothes gray


Oil from transmission is a good possibility. The machine is still young but sounds like you do a lot with the washer. Better have a friend that don't mind looking it over, make sure that's oil and go from there!

Old washing machine is starting to leave grey streaks on clothing


hmmm..let's see..sounds like you have some residue accumulating from something possibly seeping into the tub. That can be old rubber, a metal sheath, or even an leak of lubricant. Like an old car, there are parts of every mechanical device that need to be attended to.

I'd recommend you find the most seasoned person that works on older machines, to come by and assess what is 'leaking' on your clothing. Grey comes from something metallic or rubber/plastic.

Hope you can solve this one, and keep that old machine happy.
