Washer leaves stains on clothing


Many times when we cook in the kitchen, we get splattered with oils that aren't easily visible. Very often these oil spots pick up dirt from the wash water. These stains don't usually get noticed until after the clothes have been dried. The best thing to do is to rub detergent or stain remover right on these spots and let them sit about half an hour. Then rewash the clothes in as hot water as the material can take afterwards.

Im gettin 1/2 inch to 2 inch rust like streaks on my light clothing after drying. I took a wet white cloth and wiped them along the felt seals at the front and back of the dryer and got the same staining....


You are absolutely correct. Replacing the felt seals will definitely solve the problem and you have to look forward to replacing the same in another 4 years. The seals are sold as pair as you need to replace both but they are cheap and easy to replace. The only hard part is getting to the seals as you need to get the top and the front panels then the drum itself to get to the rear seal.

Brown stains in the drum of my whirlpool dryer


Apparently a common problem with 4-5 year old Kenmore and Whirlpool dryers. The paint is rubbed off the back panel by the felt seal attached to the rotating drum. The bare metal gets rusty from the damp clothes. The rust is rubbed off by the felt seal. The entire felt seal will turn brown. The stains are transfered to the clothes. The rust stains can generally be removed by additional cleaning.
I'm going to replace the felt seal on the drum, clean the rust off the back panel and see how long it lasts. Seal w/ adhesive is $30-40.
Some have suggested painting the back panel, but i don't think fresh paint is going to last long. The original paint was probably electrostatically applied and maybe baked on.

Starting to leave brown oily like stain on clothes


The first place that I'd check would be the small metal screens inside the openings on the water inlet valve. They can get really rusted, epecially in areas with hard water, so I would recommend removing the water supply hoses and take a gander at the screens. They can sometimes release the iron oxide into the wash water and cause brown stains or blotches on clothing. Hope this helped and best wishes.

My washer is leaving discolored stains on my clothes. it shows up most prominently on whites, they almost look like shadow stains, but they're getting worse. what is causing this?


If this is a top load machine, you have a bad tub bearing. This will cause your clothes to have what looks like rust stains on them. It's actually grease form the bearing. It can be replaced and I would rate it a 6 on a scale of 1 to 10, 10 being the hardest.
Please rate solution

My Frigidaire Washer Leaves Stains all over our clothes


Since this happened from day 1, your water may be the problem. Do you have well water? If so, get a softener system. This will get rid of the iron, which is responsible for rust stains. I really doubt that a new machine would cause rust or grease.

Why didn't you do something five years ago when you first noticed this? It will be much more difficult to get a resolution from the manufacturer after5 years.

Clothes dryer


It could be rust stains coming from the tub of the dryer during the drying cycle. The only concern is that rust stains are usually brown streaks on the clothes. I'd check the to make sure there are no rust stains on the tub, check the seal of the door to make sure its still in good condition. The last possibilty could be a good cleaning of the dryer (removing lint from the lint screen compartment and the tub of the dryer).

A schematic of your dryer can be found on www3.sears.com and should show how to get into your lint screen compartment and your tub.

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
