Hi there I wonder why "dark streaks" on white towels. I presume that you have made sure that there is no dirt flying around in the machine. Try to let the machine go a circle -without any washing in it- just to see if the water takes color. There are also in the shops washing powder that remove stains of different types. Also powder for "only whites" good luck Kolbrun
This washer is known to eat some clothes. I found a great big silk pillow case between tubs once:
Most of the damage is done in the beginning of the cycle directly after the brain has re-destributed the clothes. Any items of clothing with strings need not be washed in this machine or the strings will get into the pump:
the calypso washer is much older then 2 years. they stopped making them quite a few years ago. what you are seeing is how towels will come apart when washed with an aggressive washer. even expensive towels can be poorly sewn and will come apart when washed too hard. i might suggest you use the light cycle as it has a slower washing cycle speed. if you check your older and "better" towels are not doing the same thing as your new towels. i know its not fair but it is the way towels are now. you can try to remove the threads that are coming off your newer towels and then all should be ok, but there is nothing wrong with your washer just the way towels are now.
This could be an out of balance condition. When its happened to my washer, I rearrange the load if its large enough, and if its not, I find other items of like weight and add them to the load and start over. Calypso's are sensitive to fabric weight, so If you're washing towels, wash only towels and wash cloths. Make sure you put small items, like bras, panties, nighties, etc., in mesh bags and combine them with other light weight fabrics.
Although the Calypso was a nightmare machine, for the consumer as well as us techs, whirlpool, i feel, still makes best laundry product. The Duet is a nice model, me personnally am a fan of the regular regular mid range top loader, nothin fancy but reliable
Have you checked the agitator? There may be sharp edges on the agitator blades. OR the towels may be getting stuck under the agitator and tub bottom. The agitator is supposed to suck the clothing down in the center and forcibly throw the clothing outwards against the tub. The cycle then repeats.
