White Clothes even with bleach and hot water don't get clean???
Any suggestions as to why our new LGWM1814C wont get whites clean even with bleach? We use Tide High Effeciency Detergent and Clorox bleah but the stains remain in towels and wash cloths and tee shirts!
I do not have a solution either really, but I've been adding some watered down bleach in with my liquid detergent, and ALSO putting bleach into the "bleach dispenser". My whites are still not coming out as white as they did with my top loader. I like everything else about this machine, but am really disappointed with this one aspect.
I also am disappointed with how my whites come out with my frontload washer. I had a topload washer for 10 years and bought the LG front load. I LOVE everything about the washer except that I can't find a good way to get my whites as white as with my topload. Currently I wash my whites in 2 steps: I "presoak" with warm water and Clorox II on the Delicates cycle. Then I wash in hot with detergent and liquid bleach on the Cotton/Normal cycle. This still doesn't get my clothes bright white like my topload did, but is better than just one cycle. I hope someone else has a better option because I've read the owners manual front to back and can't see a better way.
I have used everything to solve this exact problem! I have to say the best detergent or bleach i have used in the lg..is the purex with bleach for colours it seems to work better than anything ive used...spent a fortune to have to soak my whites before putting them in this washer. I must say im disappointed..

If the machine has a "clean washer" setting, run that with 2/3 cup bleach only (no soap). If it doesn't have a specific setting to clean the machine, run a small load with hot water and use 2/3 cup bleach, no soap.
If you're asking how to avoid the problem altogether, you'd most likely need to install a water softener, or water filter.
Sounds as tho there is an excess of fabric softener build up on the inside of the outter tub. Try Filling with Hot water and bleach and let set for an evening and then turn back on and e tcontinue washing thru cycle.
You have probably left some clothes inside overnight and need to clean your washer.
There are some tablets you can buy at most home improvement and discount department stores that will do the job, but you can also run a load through with white clothes, hot water, and a bit of extra bleach. You could also run a load with just bleach and soap.
Don't go overboard with the bleach, a little goes a long way. If you double the amount you might normally use that will be plenty. No more than a half cup.
But also keep in mind that if you leave clothes in overnight, there will be a smell when you take them out. Wet fabric in the dark is one of the best places around for mildew to grow.
This is classic bad design actually.
Some washers are worse than others for this.
Use an oxygen based bleach in a trigger spray, and remove the detergent drawer. Use the spray everywhere in there - and remove the drawer completely to wash it in a mild bleach solution.
Use a small brush to remove the mould in there - and flush it down the pipe with more spray.
If you an get a foaming cleanser down there - then even better - or an alcohol based sanitiser spray.
Also wipe over the door seal rubber - as this sometimes collects stagnant water in the folds.
Reassemble, and do a hot wash with a few white hand towels to remove all the bleach.
You may need to do this every month.
Doing hot washes helps - maybe with a cap of bleach.
(I think the manufacturers do this on purpose - so you wash more often - breaks machines - you buy a new one etc.)
You sad,My clothes get dingier ever week from using my washer especially the towels. They are now Grey and not white
1.Here are some ideas and INFO! 2.How old is your MAH5500B washer and did you buy it new? 3.Do you use HE High Efficient detergent? 4.Do you ONLY put the proper amount of detergent directed to be used by the manufacturer? 5.Using to much detergent will degrade the seal and eventually destroy the bearings. Which will cause oil to leak out on your clothes and sometimes make gray stains on them ! 6.Is there tiny gray oily pieces in the wash and on clothes? 7.Look closely at your rubber seal around the opening. Is this worn or deteriorating away slowly due to bleach or detergent? Is it a gray or black rubber?
Please have patients and bear with me, with all these questions I propose to you here! "I am searching withyour eyes for things I have seen in the past about this model"
Here are some reasons this may also happen! How large of a load can I wash in my Maytag Neptune washer? * The tub can be loaded completely full with dry, unfolded clothes. However, do not pack the tub tightly. If the load is heavily soiled it is very important not to overload the washer.
My whites are not as white as I’d like.What can I do? * Wash white loads using the cotton/sturdy fabric selection. Select the hot wash/cold rinse temperature setting and put 3/4 cup of chlorine bleach in the bleach dispenser. The bleach will be dispensed in the final minutes of the wash providing for optimal whitening. Maytag recommends a hot water wash temperature of 120-140° F (49°- 60° C).
Also: *The lint filter in side the machine may be clogging with dirty lint! *Which means you needed service!
I hope one of these solutions is the reason! Let me know how you do! Huuum Please remember to leave a rating for me!
Peace, ngafm at your service! You may have a small amount of water or lint lift in the machine somewhere that is not completely dumping out ! This is sometimes common on front loaders! Or the pump is weak! I tell my customers to try running the washer without clothes once a week with hot water and a 1/4 cup of bleach! . BUT the first load you do after this must be white in case there is a drop of bleach left in the system, that it does not spot bleach a white spot on your colored clothes!
If not this does not remedy the situation you will need hands on service! please rate me here at our site before you sign off! Thank You!
Try washing out you unit, use www.affresh.com on the tub clean cycle, put the tablet right in the unit. Make sure you are also using the hot cycles on your whites. Cut back on the fabric softener as well.
Check to make sure your soap is not sudsing up if you see alot of foaming in the machine when in use switch brands. also i reccommed running the machine a few times until all suds are gone. Most users of frontloaders put way to much soap and bleach in these machines they use alot less water so you can use alot less cleaning products. Also these machines will sometimes give you a faut code if this comes across the led write it down and let me know what code came out.
