Black or dark stains after towels are washed in your washing machine

  Appearance

This is another common type of staining that we will often have customers insist is the fault of the washing machine when it is not. There are virtually no faults with a washer than can cause this type of staining and, in almost all instances, it will be the reasons as set out in this article.

Black or dark marks, mainly on towels.

This is not a problem caused by your washing machine and no service or repair can resolve this issue. Please follow the directions below to resovle the problem.

  Treatment

None. The damage caused cannot be reversed.

Cause & Prevention

  Cause

Toiletry products such as hair preparations or mousses coming into contact with towels. One of the ingredients within these products acts like an adhesive attracting dirt and loose dyes onto the towels.

  Prevention

Always wash hands thoroughly between using toiletry products and towels.

Greasy grey marks on whites after washing - pre-existing stains gone -secon-hand washer
I did a full wash of whites, no problem. Came to do another yesterday, using a longer, more thorough wash to remove stains. All pre-wash stains gone, but grey, greasy smears on all items, and a similar residue at the back of the drum, which had been clean before washing. I can send photos if required.
