Did you dry them in the dryer? if you did then the stain is set, and it wont come out.

If they where line dried or ? Start by washing them again, with the hottest setting they can take, using detergent. It may just wash out.

If not Rit dye has a colorant remover available, try that.

Good Luck.

Whirlpool Cabrio gets unbalanced load at 7 minutes


Make sure load is properly sorted with like materials and paired up, do not mix things like towels with pants or shirts all together as different items absorb more water then others and can create unbalance when trying to enter final spin. If issue continues, it is very possible and item of clothing may have found itself stuck between spin basket and outer tub. This is very likely scenario due to design of this washer. If that is the case, spin basket must be removed then remove clothing to resolve issues.

Black ink spill to my pants,.how can i remove the ink?so that i can still use my pants..


Hi from FixYa,

Sorry but this forum is to assist people in diagnosing problems and faults in washing machines rather than how to remove stains from clothes. Have a look at the label to see if that might help- and it depends on the colour of the pants. Otherwise I fear that the pants may have to be consigned to the bin ;-0(

Yellow stains after machine washing


Sounds like rust stains, coming off the inside of the drum, you will need to find the source of the rust. Maybe a loose screw or something metal stuck inside the drum. Carefully run your hand around the inside of the drum and check for rough jagged edges to identify anything that should not be in there.

My cloths don't come clean.....whites are dingy even with bleach. Normal stains on regular colors don't come out. If you put more than one pair of pants or two long sleeved shirts in a load they come out...


First I would start by cleaning your washer system with vinegar. Ran your machine like you would without clothes and pour a cup of vinegar like you would with the soap for a whole cycle. If this doesn't work chances are your drain is clog or your pump isn't working properly.

Washing machine stains clothes


You can pull the agitator straight up and off to check if there is any grease / oil on the bottom of it. You may have to use a belt or similar item to slip under the agitator and attach the other end to a broom handle to pull up if it is difficult to remove. If there is grease / oil, it is not very easy or inexpensive to repair. The average life of a washer is about 9 years, so this one doesn't owe you anything. I'd look into a new front load unit which uses much less water and spins clothes out at 2X or more the RPM's of your current machine. Please don't rate this solution as anything but a FixYa rating will lower my overall score. Thanks.

How can I get permanent black ink out of a white pair of pants?


Try spraying with hair spray or another spray product that won't stain. You are not using the product. The propellant is a good solvent. Hair spray and Lysol are my favorites as they don't seem to stain. RIT dye color remover may also work. If it is a large area your are probably out of luck.
