Hi.
Your machine has a wringer? Two rollers wthat squeeze the water out as the clothes go between them? I haven't seen one of those for forty years!

Anyway, the most likely source of dirty spots is a failing bearing seal which is allowing the grease from the bearings into the washing drum. If it isn't fixed the bearings will soon fail and that will be serious :-(

If I haven't understood your problem correctly please use the "add a comment" box and tell me again. Thanks, Dicky.

How to clean washing machine


Put the machine on a 90 degree wash with nothing in it, wait until it has filled and then pour three quarters of a cup of neat thick bleach into the soap drawer.

Put an old towel under the machine. The bleach will foam up and foam will come through the soap dispenser and all over the floor like a scene from a 1950's "The Blob" movie (The foam will also coat the entire inside of the machine as a result and kill any smelly bacteria).
Once the cycle has finished, throw 4 dishwasher tablets into the drum and put it onto ANOTHER 90 degree wash. At the end of these treatments, you should be a lot closer to a clean machine

HOW DO U YOU CLEAN IT


When the washer is not in use you should leave the door open at least a crack to let the washer air out. About once a month, pour about a cup of bleach, white vinegar or washer magic in the tub and turn the washer onto the clean cycle or just a hot cycle if clean cycle is not available with no clothes in the washer. washer the inside glass door especially near the bottom of the door. This is where alot of dirt and hair accumulates. Make sure that you are using HE soapl

What makes a series III washer stink like stagnant water?


J. Garber:
ALL washing machines will build up deposits of gunk in places that you cannot see or readily access. In top loaders, the typical place is underneath the agitator and on the inside of the wash tub (part that holds water). This "gunk" typically consists of body oils, detergent deposits, calcium deposits, hair, dust, dirt, etc. This stuff gets and stays wet. Wet and warm plus "gunk" equals smells. Top loaders can easily solve this problem by removing and cleaning the center column and agitator, then super chlorinating a batch of wash water (no clothes). Fill the washer, putting in three or so cups of bleach, let sit for an hour or so. This should clean the tub. Leaving the top cover open will also help as well as washing smaller batches of clothes more frequently. I have also found that infrequent use of a washer will frequently cause the the residual wash water in the pump(s) to go stagnant. Running a quick small rinse before washing clothes will solve this problem. Front loading washing machines typically have a cleaning cycle and specific instructions as to how, as well as how often, to clean the machine. Have you read the operating manual? I find that leaving the door open and running a fan that blows air inside the machine for an hour or so after washing also helps dry out the machine and keeps mold and bacterial action down by drying out the machine quickly. Keep the door open if at all possible. Removing and drying the detergent dispensers as well as the detergent dispenser opening also helps. Changing detergent may also help. Most front loaders recommend HE detergent. Use the absolute minimum amount of detergent necessary to get your clothes clean which is often a couple of ounces or less. There are also products that claim to clean your machine and eliminate odors, but I have no experience with them. Keep it dry. Keep the door open. Use a fan to blow air around and dry the machine out. Run the cleaning cycle as often as neccesary.

Dirt in rinse cycle causes clean clothes to come out with dirt all over them and inside of the washing tub has dirt everywhere!


Several things could be happening...The machine is NOT "spitting" all the water out and there is STILL some dirty h2o (water) in the wash. You could be putting in dirty WELL water ? If you have HARD water and your "hard water filter, cleaner not working. Your cloths could be SOOOOOOOOO dirty ( no offence !!! because there are many D I R T Y jobs that could take two(2) washings ) that they are not getting clean.

How to clean the inside of the machine


Go to the store and buy a bottle of CLR. Run a few cycles of it (without the clothes in there, of course!). Make sure you run a few cycles of just straight water before you attempt to wash clothes. That should do it. I've also heard of people using powdered lemonade to clean the inside of dishwashers, too. Maybe try the powdered lemonade first if you're squeamish about damaging something.

Kenmore Elite calypso 21086 leaves dirt streaks on clothes


Run the hottest & fullest cycle possible - without a load - and add a grease remover - like goo-gone. Fatty tissues build up inside the tub - and can be released on hot cycles if HOT wasn't used very often.

It is recommended to run a HOT load every 2 weeks or so to avoid these buildups and staining of clothes.

Apron caught under wringer


Hi Karen,
That is a real pain when that happens, but let me see if I can help.
First on the top of the agitator or wringer you will see a small cover. You will need to pop that off to reveal the screw hidden underneath. Remove the screw and then the agitator will pull upward and off. The agitator on the hotpoint washing machine is really hard to pull off so you will really have to pull. When the agitator comes loose you will ofter be pulling so hard that you could hurt your arm on the top of the tub so be extra careful or get some guy to get hurt for you. Once removed I am sure the apron can be easily removed and all will be well again. Good luck to you and please dont forget to rate me. Have a nice day.

Flakes of dirt on washing


Is this perhaps a second hand machine or it has possibily been stored away for some time? When a washer dries out inside ( behind the washer bowl ) and is then put back in service, dirt from years of use caked on insides flakes away ( like a dry leaf crumbles) and re-enters the wash and can end up on washed clothing. The only way to stop this is complete removal of washer bowl , scrub and clean insides to remove caked on dirt - reassembly. problem fixed !
