LG WFT851 - Flakes of dirt problem

I have a 6 year old LG WFT851 Top Load Washing Machine. Each time I wash there are a lot of dirt flakes that are left on the clothes and also in the tub. I have cleaned the filters but it still happens each wash. Does any one know what is causing this and how I can stop it from happening.

    I'm having the same problem as describe by chen1702. My model is WF-T708TC, 5 years old machine. Problem started after few months the machine was bought. The flakes like dirt are found at the bottom of the drum. It stick to the clothes located at the bottom part and I have to handwash those stained clothes since the 2nd rinse will not help at all. Please help, tks.

Try putting some milton or baby bleach into the machine with the hottest possible wash with no clothes with the highest water level

I Have the same problem. I found that the sponge seals in the drum were breaking down. I repaired this with silicone only to have the same problem again two months later. I am busy striping the drum to see what else is breaking down. [email protected]

I was given a new model LG washing machine recently, it works as it should however the original owner was a builder and whatever he was washing off his clothes has caked onto the sides of the outer drum.

I have pulled the top off the washer and can see that the outer drum is literally covered with a fulll layer of this thick, black muddy greasy clay like substance. I need to pull the inner drum out in order to be able to get the outer drum but haven't managed to figure it out as of yet.

I've tried dissolving portions of the gunk with detergent, acetone, cleaning vinegar, methylated spirits, paint thinner, auto degreaser and mineral turpentine, of all these agents turps is the only one that seems to have an effect however it's ability to dissolve the stuff is minimal.

My LG WF-T708TC works fine except that the water flow is very little despite the good water pressure from the main tap. The water does not seem to flow from the top of the detergent box but from the back side and under the detergent box. Please help.

After wash there are lots of fibrics left on the clothes


Try gentle cycle. MORE water to flush out fabric threads and dirt from clothes. Add water to wash is it's a :load sensor" type. a gallon should do it.

I suggest a "**** trap" on the waste water hose,as well. Sears has them.

Dirt after washing


WASH PERFORMANCE INFORMATION
12.1 Creasing
Creasing can be caused by over loading SmartDrive or the dryer. Permanent Press or Delicate
cycles have been designed to minimise creasing as they use a lower spin speed. Do not leave wet
clothes to sit in the washer or laundry basket.
12.2 Soiling
Soiling is the result of insufficient detergent for the load. White clothes are better washed
separately. Separate lightly and heavily soiled items, as clothes can pick up soil from dirty wash
water. Cold water below 20oC does not wash effectively. Select the wash temperature according
to soil type. For example, blood and mud are better washed in cold water, while sweat and oil
based soil wash better in warmer water. Loads made up of articles of varying sizes will wash
better (e.g. full loads of sheets may not wash that well). Hard water requires more detergent than
soft water.
12.3 Linting
Wash lint givers (eg. towels, flannelette sheets) separately from lint collectors (eg. synthetic
fabrics). Over loading SmartDrive can increase the likelihood of linting. Insufficient detergent for
the load can increase linting as there will not be enough detergent to hold the lint in suspension.
Over drying synthetic fabrics in a dryer can cause a build-up of static electricity and result in the
fabrics attracting lint.
12.4 Detergent Residue
Over loading SmartDrive can result in detergent residue being caught in the creases of the
fabrics. If this occurs, decrease the load size. Some detergents need to be pre-dissolved. Check
the instructions for the detergent. Cold ambient temperatures, cold washes or short agitation times
may not let the detergent dissolve properly. In these cases pre-dissolve the detergent.
Overdosing of detergent can also cause residue when foam breaks down and will show as white
specs on the clothing. Poor quality detergents can result in residue.
12.5 Black Marks on Clothes
A build up caused by the interaction of fabric softener and detergent (scrud) can flake off and mark
clothes. Do not use too much fabric softener, maximum 75cc. If this is a problem, it is
recommended that SmartDrive is periodically filled with hot water, plus 1-2 cups of dishwasher
powder and left to soak.
12.6 Grey Marks on Clothes
Not enough detergent for the amount of soil on the clothes can result in grey marks on clothes. If
this is a problem it is recommended that SmartDrive is periodically filled with hot water, plus
detergent and left to soak.
12.7 Dye Transfer
Wash and dry non-colourfast clothes separately. Non colourfast clothes left sitting in a washer or
laundry basket can transfer dye to other clothes.
12.8 Tangling
Washing with too much water (i.e. under loading) can cause the clothes to tangle around each
other. Do not load SmartDrive by wrapping clothes around the agitator.

Front loader has gotten really really loud and shakes the whole floor when it spins properly. Today it left a lot of water in the clothes. It used to make a weird whining noise when it didn't spin out...

Dirt left in creases after washing clothes. Clothes never look clean


Too many clothes in the load , if it says 5lb then that is the maximum you should fill it with otherwise the clothes do not seperate as they are being agitated

Also

Not enough detergent (Try the old powder types)

Hard Water area (Use a small amount of Washing Soda)

Water level too low , use add water button if fitted

Dirt around the rubber insert!!


Your washing machine probably just has a build up of dirt in the basket. When you look inside the basket you see all those holes that are all over it. Dirt will stick inside there and after time will start coming out during washes. A simple thing that you can do to fix this is run some vinegar through the wash. Pour it in the basket, the soap, fabric softener, and bleach dispensers. Wash on hot and extra large load. Make sure no clothes are in it of course. This is something you can do every few months or so. Not only will it clean out the machine but it will clean out all the hoses and any hard water deposits. Your clothes will start smelling better and looking cleaner. Give that a try though. If your machine is 8 years old chances are this is the problem. Let me know if you have any other questions and let me know if this is helpful to you. Good luck and I am always happy to help out.

It sounds like the porcelein on the inner or outer tub is damaged allowing rust to form.
Another possibility is that there are iron deposits in the internal hoses that are loosening.
I would (assuming you can afford the water wastage) run the machine on 'full load' and 'hot' several times with no clothes in it to see if it will flush out.

Flakes of dirt on washing


Is this perhaps a second hand machine or it has possibily been stored away for some time? When a washer dries out inside ( behind the washer bowl ) and is then put back in service, dirt from years of use caked on insides flakes away ( like a dry leaf crumbles) and re-enters the wash and can end up on washed clothing. The only way to stop this is complete removal of washer bowl , scrub and clean insides to remove caked on dirt - reassembly. problem fixed !
