Kitchen Aid washing machine

Suddenly, our 10 year old washing machine is leaving white undershirts with a blue-green stain around "sweaty" areas, heck and upper back. Is the problem more likely from the municipal water, or the washing machine? If it's Copper, how do you clean the washer?

If its only around one area, that sounds like some sort of chemical reaction with saline, otherwise known as Salt, which sweat would leave on clothing more in those specific areas. Try changing your detergent, first off, as that might help out. If the problem persists, do a spot check with the municipal water from another faucet as compared to the water from the washer(run it without detergent), to see if its only changing due to that faucet. I've not really seen this problem before, and have to say it sounds odd, but it does sound like a detergent problem. On the offchance that its not, check the water, then if possible, take the clothing to a laundromat, to see if the same thing happens there, locally. At least then you'll know if the pipes or washer are doing this specifically.

How do I get the mold on the rubber at the front of the washer off?

You can try with some propriety mould and mildew products from a hardware store like wilkinsons.but rinse machine thoroughly before attempting a normal wash.It is very difficult to completely remove these stains if the machine is old.it is likely your machine is not rinsing properly due to overfilling with clothes.try putting less in and after use wipe inside rubber with cleaner and leave door slightly open to allow it to dry out after use.Try using calgon to remove calcium buildup if you live in hard water area as this can aid the buildup of mildew.if you have children then obviously you can't leave it open.

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.

Stains on clothes

Check the fit of the agitator to the bottom of the drum. After this many years, it may have warped up to make a gap. Run a rag around the joint to see if it marks.

My whites are not comming clean and are not a bright white

I don't know if this is a solution to your particular problem but when we wash whites, first, we wash them twice,with hot water, second, we dont use bleach!!! (this will eventually yellow them). Third, we dont use liquid softner. For the whites we use a softner sheet in the dryer. Since we started to use this procedure I have noticed a marked decrease in areas such as under arm stains in white under shirts. I have some that are 2 years old and have no stains or yellowing like this. Hope this helps

Front loading washer leaves stains

This often is called "lint" but is really a "whiting" left by un-dissolved soap and can be seen at it's worst on dark colored clothes. This is made worse in a colder climate where the cold water entering the washer is much colder than normal. Things that can effect the quality of the finished washed products.
Too much soap: ( we have a test for this further down the page ) If you follow the manufactures instructions on the box, then chances are you ARE using too much soap. They like to sell you their product, I find cutting usage in 1/2 of what the box says will still wash good and also cut your chances of getting "whiting" on your clothes.

Rusty stains on all white clothes washed

I don't think the washer is at fault; the clue is 'Used very little.' I think the rust is originating in the water pipes serving the washer. The only help there is to run one machine with no clothes in it (wasting water) or putting splitters on the faucets and flushing the lines into a sink or other drain. To remove rust stains from WHITE (!) clothing and many synthetics, buy a product named 'Whink.' It is available in many drug stores, super markets, etc. in the area where one finds other laundry items.  It is fairly safe to use (with precautions) but keep out of reach of kids.

Wasing machine leaves rust spots on clothes.

check the basket of the machine for rust spots on the basket if thats the case the basket should have a 10 year warranty depending on the age marks are either caused from that or the dryer. if its frigidaire the dryer then the front seals probably need to be changed make sure to find out exactly which machine its coming from
