Debrie found on clothes after washing

Lately, when I wash I have noticed small pieces of debrie found on clothes, especially when I wash white clothes. I have thoroughly cleaned the drum, dispenser, and the rim around the basket and it still continues. I have also checked and there is nothing on the clothes or in the pockets before washing. Where is this stuff coming from?

    it likely around the internal rim of the door of the dryer. But I do not know how to fix it back.

This is sometimes caused by grease coming from the drum bearing through a failing seal. If this isn't checked and repaired as necessary, the drum bearing will fail pretty soon and then the machine will make a nasty grinding noise and that will be the end of it. I hope you have some other cause in your case! Do make sure the filter is cleaned and then run the machine on a hot cycle with no clothes in it to give it a really good clean.

Hope this helps. D.

It's just a build up of residue. To clean out your drum, run a hot cycle (obviously with no clothes in the machine) with half a cup of vinegar then when the cycle is finished, wipe out all the residue, and trust me there will be alot. I do this every 3 months to give the drum a good clean out.

There is a separate pump for the circulation. Either the pump or the hose between the pump and the top of the bellows get clogged. Try carefully to clean with a wire or similar, without puncturing anywhere. Washing effect is reduced when this circulation is hampered.

Maytag Nepturn TL FAV6800 Grey spots/debris on clothing

Hello davidsonrepl,

I was waiting with someone with more experience to post back on your issue. I haven't experienced this issue it but I would not rule out a transmission seal failure causing your oily grey substance in the wash tub. If you want to investigate further you can get the Service Manual from here

take a look at page 38 and on and see if you feel OK with a tear down to the transmission.

Marks on clothes

Hi. Souds like an Effect called ****. Usually caused by not using enough powder, or washing at too low a temperature. You should do a boil wash at least once a month with powder in but no clothes in. It is called maintenance wash. Always wash at the recommended temp on the wash care label. Good luck

My Whirlpool Duet is eating small articles of clothing!

Okay...first of all, the "F02" error code is a Long Drain error. This is usually caused by debris clogging the drain pump. There is a drain reservoir that needs to be cleaned out periodically. The following link explains:

Keep in mind, it does not take much to damage these small drain pumps. If anything has been left in the pump for a significant period of time, it can damage the pump motor or impeller. The result: a drain pump that "appears" to be running, but may not be pumping anything. If the error code returns, you may have to replace the drain pump.

The socks getting lodged in the rubber door boot can be a common problem. Well...I should say, its not uncommon for this to happen. Due to the design of the rubber folds in the door boot, it can often collect small items. Sixteen socks is not a new record. I found over 20 one time! This rubber door boot must be inspected after EACH wash load to ensure items do not get stuck there. This can result in articles of clothing beginning to mildew and smell over a period of time as well. There are also small drain holes in the folds that help drain away some of the residual water. If these holes become clogged, water will stand in this area and begin to smell. The following link explains the recommended steps to keep this area clean:

In addition, it is not unheard of to have small articles of clothing (such as socks, underwear and wash cloths) to manage to work their way between the inner spin basket (stainless steel tub) and the outer tub shell and get lodged in the drain hose. I would recommend you inspect the drain hose that runs from the bottom of the wash tub to the inlet side of the drain pump for obstructions as well. I have found wash cloths stuck in this hose that prevented the tub from draining. For future reference, use garment bags for washing small items. This will prevent some of the problems from reoccuring.

I hope you find this information helpful. Let me know if you require additional assistance.

If there is oil leaking out, you may have a leaking gearbox.
There is nothing you can do about that but replace the gearbox.
Here is a website link for parts.

you can copy and paste this in your web search window
