Washer leaves fabric softner stain on white clothes

Have noticed fabric softner stains on white clothes. Not sure how the fabric softner is dispensed in the water during the rinse cycle, so not sure where to look for solution.

Thanks for your help. (We have four children and a washer that is heavily used !)

Dispenser wholes are probably clogged and all the softener is not dumping when it is supposed to!. Top loaders usually have a little cup like place to add the softener in the top of the agitator!
Those the Manuel tells you to rinse with water occasionally!

If you can't figure it out, call service and get it done and over!
You will feel better!!!

You can try a few differnt things, staining is usually caused by not hot enough water to disolve or hard water issues. A Washer cleaning use one gallon white vingar fill up washer with hot HOT water let sit over night than run washer next day on HOT hot. Second try washing in warm to hot water dluting softner more breaks down better. Also dluting the softner more in the cup will help washing in cold causes alot of these issues, Make sure water heater turned up hot enough, make sure washer has hot water fill?

Kenmore 70 series, leaves browb lines on clothes. is there cleaning procedure for the washer?


It could be coming from your fabric softner. I know when I use liquid fabric softner I get oily looking stains on clothes. I no longer use liquid softner. I also use Dawn dish soap in my washer. I use Dawn instead of any other stain removers. Dawn dish soap works on everything.

OIl stains on clothes with front loading LG washer


ftr loader washers do not have any oil, my guess would be you are using fabric softner . that can stain clothes. dilute with water, they are very concentraded. or your dispenser may not be working properly and not releasing softner at the proper time.i would run a clean cycle through it. meaning set on a hot wash- regular cycle no clothes and run wirth bleach in bleach disenser. do this every other month to keep washer clean hope this helps. make sure its not happening in the dryer , the dryer has frt and rear seals that go bad and start leaving marks on clothes and catching them in beteween the tub.

My Frigidaire Washer Leaves Stains all over our clothes


Since this happened from day 1, your water may be the problem. Do you have well water? If so, get a softener system. This will get rid of the iron, which is responsible for rust stains. I really doubt that a new machine would cause rust or grease.

Why didn't you do something five years ago when you first noticed this? It will be much more difficult to get a resolution from the manufacturer after5 years.

"fabric softner staining the clothes"


make sure you delute it with water. yes fabric softner will start to stain your clothes if you use too much of it. I would recomend stop useing it for a while. so you can clean the washer out. There is a product called Washer magic or Affresh that cleans out residues built up in your washer. or you can just run several loads of HOT water and bleach to clean it out. The hot water will melt the left over fabric softner in your washer. Fabric softner is kind of like hardend bacon fat thats what it looks like in your washer after time and if you do not clean your washer it builds up and builds up.
Also i do recomend alternating liquid detergent and powdered detergent. The reason why is powder leaves a residue that liquid takes away and vise versa. try this and let me know how it goes

Washer and / or dryer causing stains


Better check the fabric softener dispenser because if at any time someone added undiluted softener it gum up and release at a later time especially on whites . The drum of dryer may have rust or paint missing inside or on the back , check this out . If drum is missing paint and wet clothing sets on that area long enough they will create rust .
