White streaks of fine powder left from undissolved detergent or soap powder at the end of the washing machine wash cycle.
This problem is not caused by your washign machine and no serice visit will be able to resolve the issue as it is down to use and not a mechanical failure.
Re-wash the effected garments with no detergent making sure they are part of a small load.
Cause & Prevention
The washing machine is overloaded leaving insufficient space for the powder to dissolve properly.
Ensure a good turnover of clothes by not overloading the machine - load the machine correctly and do not overload
The dosing device is placed into the machine in such a way that it is covered by clothes and the powder cannot disperse properly.
Place the dosing ball upright on top of the wash load towards the back of the machine.
Insufficient detergent is used.
Some powder detergents react with the minerals in hard water, forming a whitish residue that can be mistaken for undissolved detergent. The film can be avoided by using the recommended amount of detergent.
Low water pressure in the home may mean that some of the detergent has not been flushed into the machine during the wash fill process. This would leave detergent in the drawer which could be flushed into the machine during rinsing.
Make sure all detergent is flushed into the drum during the wash fill.
