I have grey/black slime on my washing when it comes out of the machine

My machine seems to often get a build up of grey/black gunge/slime which ends up all over the washing. I clean round the drum and rubber after each use but it still seems to happen. Can I get the rubber replaced? would this maybe solve the problem? I have also cleaned the filter so it is not this.

SOURCE: Slime buildup in my washing machine

The slime is almost certainly the enzymes in the washing powder that are there to digest the dirt getting left behind.

3 things you can try:

  1. As a one off to help clear out the slime, throw a couple of DISHWASHER tablets into the machine and run it through the hottest cycle it has. This may help get rid of the problem, but it will of course come back.
  2. Reduce the amount of washing powder you are using and keep cutting back until you get to the point where the clothes arent getting clean (This has the advantage of cutting the cost of your powder purchases too!). This should allow the machine to more effectively purge the drum when it rinses.
  3. Finally, change your powder, if for no other reason than a test, go try a pack of NON-BIO washing powder and see if that helps. If it does, either stick with it or experiment with other powders until you find one that helps and you like.
A combination of 2 and 3 above should eventually get you where you need to be.

SOURCE: I have a dirty rubber inner Bosch Maxx 1200 Front Loading Washing

First clean around the rubber with some mould and mildew cleaner for bathrooms - available from most supermarkets.

This is a natural accumulation of waste detergent, fabric softener, fibres and dirt build up that is being attacked by bacteria and eventually decomposes into a sludge / goo and then eventually starts smelling bad as well.

To keep the machine clean of waste build up and to keep any bad odours away:

1. Remove all items from the washer.
2. Open the dispenser drawer and 2/3 cup (160 mL) of liquid chlorine bleach to the bleach compartment. DO NOT use more than 2/3 cup (160mL) of bleach per cycle as this will lead to product damage.
3. Close the washer door and dispenser drawer.
4. Select the Clean Washer cycle or a full wash cotton 104 F wash (40 C). DO NOT use any higher temperature as this will cause unnecessary fumes
5. Press Start and allow cycle to complete.
6. After the cycle is complete, leave the door open slightly to allow ventilation and drying of the washer interior.
7. Repeat the cleaning procedure monthly

Washing machine does not wash clothes


You are possibly washing at the wrong temp, or not using sufficient powder or detergent.
The m/c is not rinsing properly, check that it is pumping o/k.
If there is a build up off slime and mould on your door seal, then you are definately washing at too low temp.
At least every 4 to 6 weeks, do a high temp wash with powder in but no clothes.
This is called a maintenance wash and helps to keep the inside parts clean..
If your door seal is stained, clean as best you can with a scourer pad or similar. You will not hurt the seal.
plz rate my solution .
Thanks.

Dirty washing


Does your washer smell? Is your rubber door seal gungy too?

If so then use 1/2 cup of Washing Soda Crystals (50p for a 1kg bag from most supermarkets)
set washer to 60 degree wash and run machine for full hot cycle with no clothes in it... just the Washing Soda.
I did this with my washer which literally reeked, and my friends have since done theirs and the results are amazing...
Go and check your drain when you finish too... mine sparkles now and it was gunged up before.. I now add a desertspoon of Washing Soda to every wash.... I place it in the crease of the door seal and little by little all the mould is disappearing, even though the hot wash cleaned the gunge the black spots remained. My washer smells so clean now and no more black flecks on the clothes either... (these are loose gunge from the outer drum, right inside the works of your machine...)

All the best

Stains on clothes


Have you tried Calgon to get rid of limescale deposits? Also have you used any laundry bleach at any point, because it stays in the machine for ages and clothes come out with faded patches and bleach marks for weeks afterwards.
