How to remove black particles on clothes from Samsung Washing Machine?

Last Update Date : Apr 20. 2018

Black particles can accumulate on the walls of the inner bowl when you are using cold wash and/or hot water tap is running on low pressure.

During washing cycle, the particles will sometime disconnect themselves from the bowl and contaminate the clothing. 

To remove black particles, follow these steps to clean the Washing Machine:

1 Fill the Washing Machine with 3/4 of water
2 Add 1 to 2 litres of Clorox/Bleach
3 Leave it overnight
4 On the next day, do a clean tub or quick wash to wash away the molds (do not put in any clothing). You may want to wash the tub a few time to remove the Clorox smell

Alternatively, you can also follow these tips to resolve the issue:

1 Start a washing cycle by setting the washing machine to its hottest temperature, highest capacity and longest available cycle
2 Add four cups of white vinegar to the hot water, close the lid and allow it to agitate for several minutes
3 Open the lid to stop the machine and allow it to sit for an hour so that the vinegar can perform its job and get rid of the bacteria hiding in area such as nooks, crannies and hoses of the machine

After running a full cycle with the vinegar, you can stop or repeat the process if the washing machine is still dirty.

The vinegar does a fantastic job of removing any mineral buildup and it also soften any soap scum and other residues that may be building up within the washer and hoses.
