Question about Fisher and Paykel Fisher Paykel Intuitive Eco Washer IWL15
Over the 4 years that I have owned my Fisher & Paykel washer I have had numerous clothes that have come out ruined because of dye left from a previous load OR bleached areas after I ran a load with bleach. There is NO water or visible signs of anything left in the washer, except I finally realized that the bottom of the washer retained some red coloring after I washed my red bath rugs. I actually was able to rub the coloring off of the plastic that is at the botttom of the tub. These are not dyed rugs but just rugs that bleed colors. I can't tell you how many loads I have had to rewash or things that have been ruined b/c I didn't figure this out until recently that the plastic was actually absorbing the natural colorings/dyes from clothes and then depositing them on the next load. The same thing has happened with bleach spots/discolorations after I run a load with bleach (I only use 1/2 cup at a time) the next load will come out with discoloration/bleaching on the fabric. Virtually every towel I own bears witness to this phenomenon. I have owned 3 washers in my lifetime and have never had any problems like this, ever, with any other washer. Somehow when the load is over there is "leftover" coloring/bleach, etc. that is left even though you can't see anything in the bottom. When I finally put 2 and 2 together and figured this out, it made sense. It is so frustrating and something I view as a real defect with this washer.
You might want to check with the company on this one. You can email them at their web site. We've never run into this and I haven't heard of anyone else who has. Maybe your unit isn't pumping properly or maybe some of the water is siphoning back into the tub? I have heard about pumps becoming partially or fully clogged and in need of being cleaned out.
Keep us posted on this one?
