Does your washer smell? Is your rubber door seal gungy too?

If so then use 1/2 cup of Washing Soda Crystals (50p for a 1kg bag from most supermarkets)
set washer to 60 degree wash and run machine for full hot cycle with no clothes in it... just the Washing Soda.
I did this with my washer which literally reeked, and my friends have since done theirs and the results are amazing...
Go and check your drain when you finish too... mine sparkles now and it was gunged up before.. I now add a desertspoon of Washing Soda to every wash.... I place it in the crease of the door seal and little by little all the mould is disappearing, even though the hot wash cleaned the gunge the black spots remained. My washer smells so clean now and no more black flecks on the clothes either... (these are loose gunge from the outer drum, right inside the works of your machine...)

All the best
Sue

Leaving dirty marks after washing


grease or rust ?? if its rust then you most likely have an exposed metal part that has rusted (look with flashlight and mirror at edge of agitator) if its grease then you can try washing it out with a little bit of grease cutter and many non clothes washes afterward

Bad smell in washing machine...clothes smell bad after wash


hi there is a build up of lime and old dirt in the inside of your drum the best thing to get rid of the smell is put a very small amount of bleach in the drum and put your machine on a very hot wash it will help in your hand book it will tell you to use your hot wash with a bit of powder and no cloths at leased once a month i dont know if you use your hottest wash most people dont these days because of the low temp powders, also the best product to use is lim away but you can only get it on usa bases or from the usa you might find someone on line that sells it that will get rid of all the lime thats been built up in your machine if you cant just use a bit of thick bleach hope this was helpful

Hi can you tell me which programme is the short wash and spin please


I think I have the same type of washing machine as you do. Wash is when all the clothes get agitated or mixed with soap and water (ever look in there when its washing? the water can get pretty gross looking!) So in my washer, the rinse cycle is when all that gross water is drained, and the washer spins while spraying clean water over the clothes to get rid of the dirty water and soap. I think mine does this 5 or 6 times in the cycle. Next is the spin cycle, which is when the washer spins REALLY fast to **** as much water out of the clothes as possible, so that the clothes aren't sopping wet when you put them in the dryer.

It sounds like your mom has a newer washing machine, probably a front load one, and they do seem to keep using clean water, instead of just agitating the clothes in dirty water.

Hotpoint Aquarius WF740 My washing is coming out with dirty marks and bits of slimy dirt. I wonder if it is from the door seal as this is dirty or could it be something else? I used the persil gel filled...


Your pipe to the water pump exit is probably blocked with bits of old fluff or missing sock, i found that the clothes had slimy bits on mine, i tilted it up and removed the rubber water exit pipe from under neath, cleaned out all the rubbish and works a treat now.

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.
