Why will my washing machine not clean clothes properly!?
Question by Rachyyyy: Why will my washing machine not clean clothes properly!?
I have a Beko washer, I clean the clothes at 40 or 30 degrees with a biological powder, it is over a year old however not over 2 years. Recently it has started to not get marks out of the clothes when I wash them, ie. i will get a top out and it still has marks on however the marks can be rubbed off with my nail however the washer will not remove them even after 2 or 3 washes. I have also noticed that the hole under the drawer of the washer where the water goes through is coated with some sort of black waxy substance! I have tried using bleach powder on a 90 wash with no avail. Please help me!

First of all you are using a powder soap with cold water. Powdered soap does not dissolve well in cold water and is building up in the hole. You will have to remove this soap buildup with a knofe or other suitable instrument. I would run the washing machine completely empty of clothing on its ‘Large Load’ setting, or the largest setting it has. Put 4 cups of bleach and an entire bottle of vinegar in with the cycle. Run using HOT water NOT cold. And run the rinse cycle twice. Find some liquid detergent to use instead of powder from now on if you are going to use only cold water. I am assuming that your machine is a top loader. Make sure the agitator is working properly.
