Customer Question
Regarding my Maytag Brovos...

Regarding my Maytag Brovos top-loading HE washer: When I do a load of dark items, some of them end up with white residue. Not every item. I can rinse them by hand in plain water and the residue goes away. It is not from any tissue or other paper. I have cleaned the washer with AFresh recently, and use ALL HE detergent. I am not adding any softener or bleach to these dark loads. Any suggestions? The machine is not old, but I did not purchase it. It came with the home.

Contractor's Assistant: Can you guesstimate how old your Maytag is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?

Not sure of the age - possibly 3 or 4 years. Model No: MVWX700XW2

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

No!!!

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

That seems to be the only problem with the machine.

Hello, I am sorry nobody has gotten back to you yet. This is a common problem with these HE machines. It will require the top tub cover (number 4 at the link below) be removed so a long brush may be used to clean the area in between the tubs. If you would like instruction on how to do this, please let me know!
