Dirt Ring in My Washing Machine

Category Appliances

My washing machine leaves a ring of dirt after the wash is done, it also leaves dirt on the agitator and sometimes deposits scum back on the clothes. I have tried running a cycle with vinegar but it still does it. Any ideas?

try a cup of vinegar in the rinse cycle. you really won't smell it after it dries.

does your washer have any filters for lint or water filters that need cleaning. some of the older models had a lint filter and when it got full it caused problems. look under the rim for a plastic piece that pulls out. do you have the book that came with the washer? can you find one online?

hard water in some areas can do this too. the vinegar should help if thats all it is.

Could your drain hose possibly be clogged sending dirty water back into your washer?
