Dark Spots on clothes

Recently after washing clothes dark spots are appearing. The spots match up with the holes from the drum. Before this we washed a bath mat that was starting to breakup before washing. During the washing the bath mat shreded. My wife was pulling pieces of the mat out of the washer.

There may be some pieces of mat stuck between the inner and outer drums. The quickest way to remove this is to remove the drain hose that leads from the drum to the pump and feel around the bottom of the outer drum and remove any foreign objects that may be stuck in there.

My dark clothes come out of the washer covered in lint. What's up with that?


The lint may be that a particular garment should not be washed in a machine. Don't wash clothes with something like a bath rug.Be sure pockets are empty and that you are getting disolved paper on your clothes. The color of the,lint might give you a clue about it's source. I have often wondered why lint in my belly button never matches my clothes, so lint can be mysterious stuff. good luck.

If your bath mat has a rubber backing, that would prevent the water from being centrifuged out of the mat. Even if you laid the mat in the drum with the wet side outwards, it would still only have a limited effect on removing the water.

Washer making holes in clothes


Feel the drum inside for any sharp object example a pin that is sticking sideways in a hole or the the drum spot-weld spots that came lose making a high spot.
I did find the same kind of a problem with a Defy front Loader machine. You can also check the gap between the door and the drum lip.
Hope this will solve your problem and save yourself from spending big bucks on new clothes.

Black, tar-like spots on some clothes after wash


Hi
Its probably coming from the outer drum of your machine. That's what holds the water. Your inner drum, what you see, is full of holes and allows the water to pass through in the drum and wash the clothes. that outer drum gets crud in it which then passes through the holes onto your clothes. the easiest way to get rid of it is to get a product called "affresh" from W mart or the big Hardware chains and follow the directions. Good Luck

Spots on clothes


By spots I'm guessing that this is a permanent mark on the cloth. If that's the case, you are possibly putting concentrated liquid bleach into the machine...it is being added and causing the spots. Solution is to dilute the bleach or other concentrated cleaner. If you're adding it manually through a hopper...add it later in the cycle.

If the spots are black...you may have a bearing leak into the machine. Repair is a big job.
