Cause & Prevention
The garment has metal zips/buttons.
Keep wash time short with suspect garments and ensure these garments are removed from the washing machine immediately after the wash finishes and dried in accordance with the fabric care label.
The water supply has a high copper content, or new copper piping has recently been installed.
Try and flush out standing water in pipes prior to running the washing machine.
