Try aerosol hair spray. It removes dried ink from clothes, may also work for your dryer. If not, try paint thinner or mineral spirits, available at any hardware store.

Forgot to put the lint trap back into LG Ventless Dryer DLEC855W. Clothing might have gotten stuck inside. Dryer now making grinding noise and drum is moving slowly. Is it time to call a repairman?


The filter simply allows the dryer air to pass through and trap the lint so it will not collect in the exit tube or on the outer vent parts. If anything, the clothes inside the bin will just spin around and be there when you finish. The noise inside the dryer could be from something that was in the pant or shirt pocket and was floating around.

Hotpoint WD 640. The machine is not fully draining after washing or drying. Any help?


The reason for this is almost certainly because the empty pump filter is partially blocked. Unfortunately, our loving friends at Hotpoint put the filter UNDER the drum and it can only be got to by drgging the machine out and attacking from the rear. The filter is the size of a large coffee mug, covered in rubber, directly below the cetre of the drum and held in place by a large jubilee clip. Remove the clip, pull off the rubber boot and inside is a white conical "pot" with a ping pong ball in it. You will probably find lint, coins and junk inside. Clean, replace the ball, reassemble. All should be ok

Why does my washing comes out with stains on it.... they weren't there when it went into the wash...


yes sometimes ink pens can be washed when we are not aware it was in someones pocket. I use straight ammonia and a cloth to clean my washing machine drum a couple times a year because these things have happened to me before. The ammonia will cut the grime and pen stains out of the drum. Then take a squirt bottle and fill it with white vinegar and squirt all around inside the drum of the machine. Run a wash without any clothes with the hottest water to clean the drum and clear out the stains. Do this to the dryer also and clean out the filters. Take the dispensers out from the washing machine and clean those too and your cleaning is done for a while. Apparently the ink has been in the drum of your washing machine and putting the color into your clothes. You can bleach out the white clothes that turned blue. Use the stain remover for colored clothes. Hope this will help you.

I get black marks like a crayon or ink line on certain light colored shirts after washing my clothes. Not sure if it's coming from washer or dryer. I use a stain remover and it's not coming out completely.


is the black marks grease look under the bottom of the machine and look on the side walls of the machine if u have a line of grease around both sides then you would need to change the transimission on the machine if it is not grease and you determine that is pen u might try looking in between the two baskets.And lastly ihave seen pen cartriges enlodge inside the pump which does cause the pen to leak hope this helps

Dry-spin doesn't work, because after rinsing the clothes are still wet. MOD- VBXR1070WOWW SER-SZ107967H


I'm assuming this is a G.E. brand because of the model number. Take the four screws off the very bottom panel of the front of the washer. Inside you will see a twist off rubber cap. Place a pan under it big enough to hold 2 quarts, and twist the cap open. When the water comes out and it is empty remove any accumulation of lint, loose change, etc. This should be done monthly to help the washer discharge the water on spin cycles.

Also, inside the door is a flat rubber ring. At the bottom pull the flap back. There are small holes there for the water to drain out. Lots of stuff accumulates there too, even as large as a pocket knife or ball point pen. Check that daily when washing.

WASHER DOES NOT TURN


Sounds like the motor has frozen. Try to work the drum loose from the bottom (empty and unplugged) it just might be jammed from a pen or similar item lodged inside (someone not emptying their pockets). Since its buzzing (its the motor TRYING to move the drum) it has to be jammed from something. Rarely it could be a bearing locked up in either the drum or the motor itself though its unlikely.

Black marks on clothes


Use your tub clean feature and throw in some affresh www.affresh.com to see it that will clean out your unit. Check your button trap to see if anything is there. Insure you use HE branded detergent and cut back detergent and on your fabric softener, only tablespoon or 2 will do. Only use enough to satisfy your requirements and you will save money in the process.
With your roller balls, you can check it out, use a phillips screwdriver. On the baffle itself there is one screw and then it slide out. Maybe something is caught there.
I can't think of anything else that might be causing it. One thing, do you notice it on the clothes when you take them from the washer, or from the dryer. If it is when they are dry, check the felt inside your dryer, they have been known to get black and transfer onto the clothes. Sometimes they put too much grease in there or it could be from the rollers in the dryer as well.

Black marks on clothes


My wife complained that we were having similar problems recently. After investigation I located the remains of a pen entering the filter and removed this and did a few empty boil washes to remove any remains of ink and this worked for us. Check the filter and hose between the drum and filter.
