Maytagmaytag washer that leaves white residue on dark clothes

K Oct 05, 2019 Review updated:

I have a Maytag Washer Model MVW65555DWI purchased a year ago...My whole family only purchases Maytag Washer/Dryers...but, this one I'm not happy with. This is my first "no agitator" washer and I definitely don't think it cleans the clothes properly. My dark clothes come out with "white residue" that is very hard to get off. I use a cup of bleach and use the Clean cycle, but it doesn't help. I don't think I should have to purchase another product to clean a product that is suppose to clean in the first place. I use HE dertergent, but still have white on the darks. I've cleaned the dispenser tray, still "white residue". I've just about given up...Any suggestions????? The salesman at Lowe's strongly recommended this model, as I wanted an agitator machine. I thought Maytag proprobably came out with newer, smarter technology that improved the washers, but this is definitely a step backwards.

    The key is finding out what the white residue is. Using a full cup of bleach is easily too much. Along those same lines, you can also use considerably less detergent - - neither should be more than 1/3 of a cup.
