Contractor's Assistant: What's the make and model of your washing machine? And can you guesstimate how old it is?

Can you see the above message?

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

I just want to know what is happening, it's an 11/2016 top loading High Efficency Low Water Washer, and is now leaving blotches on my clothes,

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

It has happened in the last 3 loads both with and without fabric softner. I haave 4 ruined garments.

Can I please have the Full model number of the unit to better assist you ?

The model number is ***** the lid at the rear of the opening on top loaders .If you open the washer lid ,
the model /serial tag is at the rear of the opening on the washer itself.
And just inside the door on the face frame after the door is opened on front loaders.

If it is leaving marks on the clothes that would typically be from a foreign substance in the machine. That machine does not use oil in a transmission or anything like that and the outer tub is just plastic so it would have to be something in the machine itself. You may want to remove the inner tub to check it and check the outer tub for anything that is in the machine. This would not be comng from the machine itself. Here is a video of how to remove the basket...CLICK HERE

All I ask is...Please remember to use the RATING LINK ON YOUR PAGE by selecting a star at the top or bottom of the screen before you leave today. Even though you paid the site they will not disburse any part of it to me until you supply a good rating. If you need anything else, just let me know. You can continue asking follow-up questions at no additional charge after rating my service if you still need assistance.
