Slime from clothes on inner drum

Recommended Posts


Every time i wash my bed sheets the film of oil etc from the sheets sticks all over the washing machines inner drum leaving a stickiness same goes for towels as well.


I have to do a couple of washes with vinegar afterwards to make it shine again. Is this an issue with the washing machine not cleaning correctly?

Hi. Is there something that's getting onto the sheets other than normal skin? It could be to do with overloading and/or not using enough quality detergent, or not washing on the correct wash cycle. Maybe even a combination of them all. It is also possible that there is a fault somewhere on the machine, but that's much less likely if it otherwise appears to be working as normal.

Go through my causes of poor quality washing results article here - why is my laundry not getting cleaned properly in washing machine?
