  • That does not sound good at all! How old is your machine? Might be time to call in the pros to diagnose, I just can't imagine why that would be happening.

    Probably mold. Leave the washer door open and also the soap dispenser open.

    Sounds like time for the repair man.

    always leave your washer lid open, Because if you close it it will get mold. Try running an empty wash with just baking soda in it. That should help you. Do that every so often. Maybe once every 6 wks or so. But leave lid open

    Do you have a filter screen on each of the water hoses that flow into your washer?

    First thing I'd check on is what the black bits are. Do they mush when touched like mold would. Are they hard like plastic or rubber? If it's hard or rubbery you need to find out where it's coming from. It could be old tubing, pieces of pump or what not. If you're a DIY you could look up the manual on line for your model and see if there is something in your washer that might rub or grind. The agitator would be my first thought although ours would be white. Good luck
