Whirpool Duet Front Load Washer

I've been getting stains mostly on cotton t-shirts (coloured). The stains dis-colour the fabric like oil would. They are random and in various patterns. There is no odor that comes from the machine. I have been advised to use Affresh to clean the unit and this should help. This has happened from day one. I have lost enough good shirts that either I try to solve the problem or toss the machine out. I'm pretty handy can anyone suggest a troubleshooting procedure.

    I have the same problem with oil like stains after the wash is complete. I use the Whirlpool Duet. We normally wash the shirts again. It does not happen all of the time. It is very annoying.

It may be the same problem we have, that the fabric softener is leaking before it's supposed to in the cycle.
If there is water left in the tray, the suction is not broken, and the fabric softener will immediately start leaking into the drum.  To stop this, we lift the fabric softener/bleach cup up out of that water to break the seal.  Leave it up for a few seconds.  
That seems to do the trick.  Although, in my opinion, it should not happen to begin with.

I have a jacket that was washed & the fabric stained from the detergent


Probably oxyclean? It has bleach in it and the jacket may not have been "colorfast". Or you may have had left over bleach getting into the wash. Or a bleach dispenser leaking?

Brown streaks on white cloths?


Hi Ralph,
It may be important to have an idea as to what caused the stain/discoloration. Carbona (http://www.carbona.com/home.php) has different products specific to the various reasons for the problem. You may be able to use bleach, depending on the fabric affected. Some white material turn yellow with bleach
Hope this helps ~ Good luck!

My Frigidaire FTF530FS Front Load Washer appears to be leaking oil and it is getting on my clothes


Hello Loree Grudem - This can be the result of the shaft bearing and seal. They may have become worn and the transmission oil is creeping up to get in your water. Once this happens, it gets on your clothes to cause staining. Or possibly you have a buildup of fabric softener that comes loose and puts a greasy like substance in your water and on your clothing. Once you put your clothes in the dryer and the old fabric softener melts you will see these spots. I suggest contacting a professional to move forward accurately.

Clothes coming out with stains they didn't have - looks like oil/grease


Front load greasy residue ,

Due usually to much detergent in each load, use smaller amounts.
To much detergent degrades the rubber seals and gaskets and rubber seal also in some front loaders around the door too!

Over the life of a front loading washer the seal/gasket degrades
largely due to the chemicals in the detergent as well as bleach.

Most gaskets/seals get hard and brittle therefore the over the life of a front loading washer
the seal/gasket degrades largely due to the chemicals in the detergent as well as bleach.

Mile 864 front loader - clothes come out with new grease marks


Problem will be the use of fabric softner or too much detergent. The stain you are seeing is generally to animal fat that is present in fabric softner, Best solution is to cut back on the amount of softner being used, same with powder.
