Spotting on Towels and sheets

We have had this washer for a while, and it works well, but sometimes towels and sheets come out with white spots that look like bleach stains. We are not using bleach or liquid softener. Happens with both HE and normal Cheer and New Era. Anyone having a similar problem or can suggest a fix?

Cut down slightly on the amout ot detergent you are using.
Check the inside door window, that probably has a residue of detergent on it from a previous washing. I wipe my inner door off with a towel that is going into the wash cycle. For as long as I have been diligent in wiping off the inner door window my the spots on my clothing haven't returned.

Removing ink from dryer

After trying all the suggestions mentioned, I tried nail polish remover and it worked pretty well. I only had the non-acetone variety on hand. I'm guessing the acetone version would be quicker so I plan on keeping that around 'just in case'.

It took about an hour to an hour and a half to clean it all off, it was all over ever bit of the inside of the dryer so it was pretty bad. Be sure have good ventilation. Take a deep breath BEFORE sticking you head inside the dryer drum and try not to breathe once your in there.

Also, be sure you check the area close to the dryer opening, the ink seemed to 'hide' there. I went over every bit of it twice (I had brand new white sheets to dry and wasn't taking any chances!). Rinsed it thoroughly with a very wet towel, did that twice.

Then I tried the suggestion about the towels with Clorox. I put two very wet bath towels (white unless you have old ones you don't care about) and poured about a quarter cup of bleach onto the towels. Then turned on the dryer. Did that twice also. Almost every bit of ink is gone. There are some small stains on the enamel that may vanish in time but they posed no threat to the new sheets.

I dried the sheets and they came out perfectly clean with NO ink spots on them. Success!
. Expect to use some elbow grease, but it worked!
. Good Luck to you

Why is my kenmore washer shredding sheets?

Check the drum for any Sharpe edges or splits also check the activator for the same . Something in side may have a rough edge to cause this .

New Cannon towels are soft but totally nonabsorbant.label says 100% cotton 100 %aragon

Wash in cold water, and use fabric softener as well as dryer sheets when drying at low heat on dryer. To hot of water and to hot o drying will cause this.

My maytag neptune washer is spotting my laundry - especially light colored towels with possibly an oil spot - about the size of a dime or sometimes quarter. I tried running a cleaning disc thru it twice ,...

f you use cold water wash and rinses regularly it may have an accumulation of un-dissolved detergent, dirt/grime and body oils stuck on the inside wall of the outer tub. When washing whites I assume that you are using Hot water and it could be causing some of the accumulation to break loose in small clumps and re-depositing on the clothes.

Brown spots on clean white clothes

The drum seal is bad in your dryer. Those brown spots are burn marks. It's actually burning your clothes. Unfortunately this is not an easy fix. The same thing happened to my wife and I. I can fix many things, but I decided this wasn't worth fixing since I'd have to take apart the whole dryer to fix it. It would've been very time consuming and you'd have to have the technical ability to tackle the job. We just bought a new dryer.

Grease on white towels

This is from not enough HOT loads.

Fatty deposits gather between the basket and tub during COLD washes.

Then they are being released in large numbers when you do your whites on HOT.

It is recommended to do 1 HOT load per week.

Do an empty load with some degreaser added (like Goo-Gone) on the fullest/hottest setting you have.

Streaks in towels/sheets

From experience, Bleach will stay in the machine and bleach load after load (esp with an enamel or poly drum). Normally have to run a HOT empty cycle to clean it out.
