machine is supposed to keep your clothes looking clean and
smelling great, yet if a washing machine is not functioning well, it
can do the opposite. Sometimes it starts by seeming as though there
is a marker stuck in the wash that is marking up the clothing. If it
continues then, it could be that there is an issue with the machine
itself. You can check below to learn about some of the potential
causes, or you can call American Appliance Repair for appliance
assessment at 800-640-9934.
You Might Be Loading Your Machine Too Full
Many people assume that the issue with
overloading is that the water and soap cannot get to the clothing.
This is not the issue. The issue is that the detergent cannot
circulate well after it is on the clothing. This could lead to stains
caused by the detergent. This is a more common issue with powder
detergent than with liquid, though either can cause issues.
You Are Using Too Much Fabric Softener
If you have ever gotten liquid fabric
softener on your hands, you know that it has a sort of waxy
consistency. Why? Because it coats the fibers of your clothing with a
nice-smelling wax. However, it only works if it is dissolving into
the water correctly. If the machine is too full, or if there is much
too much fabric softener, then it can leave behind visible residue.
Your Washing Machine’s Door Seal is Moldy
If the issue is black streaks after
your clothing comes out of the washer, then you should take a look at
the gasket on your washer. This is more often a problem on front-load
washers. If you see mold in there, then that is what is leaving
stains on your shirt. This mold is allowed to grow because the water
is not drying quickly enough because the seal is not tight enough.
The first step to fix this issue is to
clean away the mold with white vinegar or your favorite cleaner. You
can then think about replacing the entire seal. You can talk to us to
find out if this is the best option.
Your Washer Has a Damaged Drive Belt
The drive belt is the piece of the
dryer that physically moves the drum. When it is moving, the fabric
softener and detergent are able to evenly distribute over the
clothing. If it is not working well, then the detergent and fabric
softener can drop on one spot of your laundry and cause stains.
Whether you are having one of the above
issues with your washing machine or something else entirely, you can
contact American Appliance Repair now at 800-640-9934 for help.
