SOURCE: residue left in washer after rinse and on clothes

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
Yes, I would gently suggest as a first step that you clean the drain motor lint tray/filter. So many 'faults' are caused by blocked filters and many machines will not even go to spin or release the door lock if there is any water still left inside.
Here are my complete guidance notes for checking both the drain motor filter and the drain motor ;-0)
-------------------------------------

If you are unsure where the filter is, it is often behind the front lower (kick) panel (or in some machines at the rear in an awkward position!) and most are held in by a round cover/knob. Sometimes the filter will not come out with the cover and you will have to persuade it to come out to play!

REMOVE POWER AND ENSURE YOU HAVE A WATER RECEPTACLE/RAGS TO SOAK UP THE WATER WHICH IS BOUND TO POUR OUT!
It's surprising what people have found in theirs! It is always worthwhile checking it on a regular basis.
Now- whilst the filter is removed it is normally possible to see the drain motor and ensure it is not jammed by a foreign object such as a needle or a toothpick. It should be able to be turned by hand/finger- the power IS OFF!
At this point it is also possible to test if the motor works. No clothes or water in the machine, select a spin cycle and put the power back on. You should be able to see the motor turning at some point, possibly straight away. If it doesn't work then the motor is malfunctioning!

Hope the filter is the problem and good luck!

My Tromm washer is leaving residue on my clothes


Make sure you are using the correct soap. (Front load soap powder) Also use a bit less than suggested on the packet. If you are often using cold or low temp wash cycles, dirt and build-up in the machine will be common and come off on your clothes. Use a very hot wash at least once a month to clean it out and stop using fabric softener. It sticks to everything and any dirt in the water gets stuck on and then comes off in later wash cycles.

Sandy residue


Are you on public water or a well? If you are on a well, you may need to replace the screen on the well point.

Hi i was just wondering how to clean the filter on a fisher and paykel washing machine. when washing clothes the washer doesnt seem to be getting them as clean as they could be and there is always debree...


There is no filter to clean on GWL11. There is an optional lit filter that can be installed that goes in-place of the fabric softener cup. I would guess that the reason debree is being left behind is possible due to the over use of soap... This is a high efficiency machine and if you are using the auto water level option it may not be using as much water as you believe it should (or would). The debree get suspended in the soap suds as the should however, there is too many of them and they are not all being rinsed out. You could try using the fabric softener rinse option even if your not using fabric softener this gives it a more traditional rinse like most other top load washers use.

For really soiled clothes like sand and dries mud etc. shake the clothes out first.

I hope this helps.

P.S. I actually have this exact washer myself.

My whirlpool washer has sand in it after the rinse cycle.Is there a filter I need to clean? If so where?


There is no filter Its been a long time since I heard this one. I live in a coal mine area.
we used to have to take the tub out and chip the hardered coal dust from the washers. I comes from the clothes and tennis shoes. No cure i know.

Residue on clothes


For low water volume - or "Trickling" effect...

1. Turn off the water supply to both hoses.
2. Remove hoses (one at a time so you don't get them confused)
3. On the washer side - look for a removeable screen inside wher you just removed the hose.
4. Using a small screwdriver - pop out the screen and reverse-flush it/clean it. It will likely be full of sediment and calcium deposits from your pipes.
5. Replace the inlet screens.
6. Re-fit the hose to the machine.
7. Turn on water supply valves.
8. re-try.

Washer not cleaning clothes


The filter on your pump is probably clogged with lint and stuff. You have to remove the bottom front panel, 3 torx screws underneath. The panel will drop and come off. Drain off the excess water from the drain pipe you see. The white filter cover is right in front. Get yourself a good plastic bag to collect water. Unscrew the filter cover and twist the filter out. Clean out all the stuff and put it back in carefully.
On some models the filter is located ‘inside’ the big hose from the bottom of the tub. This takes more time to clean.

Next run your washer with 2 cups of bleach, hot water. After it starts agitating stop the washer & let it remain for 2 hours. Then continue the wash.
Try using powders for 'front loaders'

Dark dirty spots on some clothing items appears on every load.


what you are seeing is suds getting back onto the clothes. make sure you are using HE type soap and not using too much of it.
if you are seeing suds inside the unit, when it is running, then it will "re-deposite" dirty soap residues back onto the clothes.
you need to run a rinse and spin cycle or even a heavy duty cycle with hot water to rinse out any soap that is left in the unit.
not a major problem, just use it differently and it will be ok.

My washer has a really bad smell like musty if i leave the doors closed or if I leave clothes in for a couple of hours is this a probem with them


hi there,

the musty smell is from the door boot or gasket. deposit from clothes and detergent get trapped in there and have nowhere else to go. i would recommend purchasing Washerfresh tables to get rid of the deposits. they are available all over.

I have a Samsung SW60ASP toploader and it continues to deposit black 'bits' in the washing machine after use, staining clothes and I have to wash everything again. I have had the drum cleaned, but the...


To overcome the problem, try using hand hot water for your wash once or twice each month, the hot water keeps the inside of the machine clean by not allowing the oily residue from body oils that adhere to your clothes from sticking to the hose etc, also there is always some water left over in the bottom of the bowl (you can't see this water) which has left over scum that has not rinsed away still sitting in this water. GIVE YOUR WASH AN EXTRA DEEP RINSE WHEN THE CYCLE FINISHES.(just turn your dial to where it says RINSE) that way your clothes will be much cleaner and the washer will have removed any left over gung etc from your clothes and bowl etc.. Hope this helps..
