    I have a top load Samsung washer. When we wash t-shirt jogging pant material items. The washer leaves white stains on the cloths. Somethimes it looks like detergent thats not washing off are lint. There’s no drain pump filter on my unit. We’ve tried changing detergents we’ve cleaned the washer out multiple times. Any help would be helpful. Thanks in advance

    Sometimes it looks like detergent thats not washing off are lint.
    Is it lint you can brush off with a lint brush?

    Or is it permanent?

    It’s not permanent. If we do an extra rense cycle it goes away. And some can come off with a lint brush. Just to much easier to re rense

    I've noticed you posted the age of your washer 6-10 years old. Did this just start happening out of the blue?

    We received it second hand. When we first got it we did not have this problem.

    Ok, then I really don't know what's causing it.

    Hopefully another tech. thats seen and solved this problem will come here and shed some light on this for us.
