Question about AEG Washing Machines

Open Question

My Lavamat 52435 has started to stain clothes, leaving brown/black marks which won't wash out. Perhaps it's dirty where I can't see - the inside where I can see is clean. What should I do? Is there a simple solution? Mike Lunan

Grease will not come from the interior of the washer, as the machine ages build up deposits under the basket and it is oily, greasy and full of mildew. If can get a spanner wrench from a appliance parts house and remove the basket you will see on machines older than three years a build up starting. I pulled 15 lbs from a 25 year old machine and I had to go get sick outside, it was bad.

SOURCE: leaving dirty marks on clothing

What kind of washer is it? Most of the time spots are caused by a reaction between a detergent and a fabric softener. Try hand washing a spotted garment in warm soapy water. If the spot comes off, they were caused by fabric softener/detergent interaction.

A common problem with older GE/Hotpoint washers was that they would let transmission oil leak back into the tub. (Which is why I asked what kind of washer it was.) Sure hope this helps you find a resolution to your problem. Best wishes.

The only oil would come from your rear bearing assy. Its a very expensive repair. I know the units not that old but I wouldnt waste a service call on it unless they are giving free estimates (which most co.s are not). Its gonna need the rear bearing and back half of the tub. Low end estimate will probably well over half the cost of the unit. Hope this helps _MJ_

Large dark brown spots appearing after washing


Normally a washer does not cause a staining problem, but If something inside the washer has rusted, it could. I would check your water tank. Drain water from the drain cock at the bottom of the tank, and see how dirty it is. If it is dirty, you need to drain the water until it is almost clear.

Check the conditions inside the drum.

Sand away any rust and paint over with high temp paint.

Why is my washer leaving black stains on my clothes


It sounds like it might be leaving mold deposits. Try running a cycle with no clothes in it, hot, with a cup of bleach. If the stains are more brown than black, though, that would be rust in the pipes.

My washer leaves black marks on my clothes. I do not use fabric softners


Do you mean Black, really black marks? Perhaps dark brown.

Some marks comes from moldy seals, other marks comes from leaking gears from the machine. Examine the marks, check if those marks are oily or not.

Starting to leave brown oily like stain on clothes


The first place that I'd check would be the small metal screens inside the openings on the water inlet valve. They can get really rusted, epecially in areas with hard water, so I would recommend removing the water supply hoses and take a gander at the screens. They can sometimes release the iron oxide into the wash water and cause brown stains or blotches on clothing. Hope this helped and best wishes.

My clothes are being stained by brown/black marks. I think it is an oil leak into the drum. Is it a seal and is it easy to fix? Frigidaire Gallery Model # FWT647GHSO


Spots on clothing in a washer are usually caused by a reaction between detergent and fabric softeners, but to check and see if these spots are petroleum based (oil), try removing the spots with solvent. If the spots will come out with solvent, but not with soap and water, then it could be transmission oil that is leaking into the tub and this is very bad news. This was a common problem on the older GE and Hotpoint washers. Sorry to hear about the problem that you are having and I hope this helped. Best wishes.

Turn water off. Remove hoses and clean the rust out of the strainers at hose end. If they are clogged they will sound funny when water goes through them.

I had the same problem, and it turns out that it is NOT the seal. It is the liquid fabric softener. The fabric softener dispenser needs to be cleaned periodically or it gets a black waxy, goopy, build up. It is this same buildup that ends up staining your clothes with dark brown or black stains. Just remove the dispenser and wash it our very well and the problem will be gone.
