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.

Hi. I have a Kenmore Elite top-loading washer and in every wash load there are flakes of brown stuff, not rust but more like leaves. There does not seem to be anything wrong with the outflow. Thanks!


Run a few washes of rags or towels with plenty of BLEACH & VINEGAR (two quarts of white) a couple of times to remove most bacterial debris from your machine. There is no part of the machine that "creates" brown flakes, so it is either in the water inflow (check the water) and the way to see what is coming into the machine is to do a "load" without any clothes! Just have the tub fill and look at what fills.....Sounds like something under the tubs upper lip that's coming-off and into your tub during the wash and agitation cycles.

My lg Washing Machine WF-T853A is putting black rubbery chunks and flakes through every wash.. This has been happening for about 12 mths and is getting worse to the point where half the lint bags are full...


sorry to ask you this but are you sure the flakes are rubber? usually the black flakes are lint from the clothes. to help combat this problem try this.1- buy 2 pkts of bicarb of soda or baking soda, 2- select high water fill. 3- select hot water fill.4- pour soda into an empty machine. 5- shut the lid and push the start button. 6- let it fill and wash, let it wash for about 5 to 10 min"s , do not let the water drain.7- turn machine off after letting it wash for 5 to 10 min"s , and leave the water sit in the bowl overnight . 8- in the morning start cycle again and let it go thru complete cycle. this should get rid of most of the lint. you might have to do this twice depending on how dirty the plastic tank is. please reply 4 more help and good luck.
