LG Fuzzy Logic Washing Machine / stains ruining all my clothes

1 South Africa Review updated:

I bought this machine 6 months ago from a lady leaving to go overseas therefore I have no idea which store it was bought from or if still under guarantee

Bottom line the machine is ruining all my clothes and bed linen and towels.

I have already thrown many away and at the end of my tether

I have cleaned the machine. I have done a load with no clothes in and some amonia and still no joy - its just ruined another of my expensive towels and ive had enough
what can be done

I also feel I should be compensated for loss of clothing bedding towels etc

My cell number is [protected] Your urgent response would be appreciated

    We had the same problem, with an LG toploader apparently fabric softner is the main culprit. After phoning around we were quoted R400 by LG and R250 from an independant repair shop. Decided to tackle the job myself, took out the drum and found black gunge on the drum and inside the tank, cleaned with high pressure spray assembled and seems to be fine. no normal rinsing with hot water or chemicals will remove this dirt it has to be scrubbed or sprayed. We suggest using a decent washing powder eg. SA 8 from Amway- the best washing powder in the world which will keep your machine clean once it has been cleaned.

    Hope this helps.

    Being a single 50 year old female, to do what was suggested in the above comment, a little difficult for me. Surely there must be some kind of other method one could do with out striping the machine, i to have lost clothes, linen and towels due to this thick black gunge that sticks to the machine. I have tried to clean the machine with coarse salt and hot water and i do use Bio Classic Products, as i was told to use only that as it does not build up soap residue, well not true.
    Please help.
