Hello! I have the same model and I’m getting the brown spots recently too! My model of Samsung washer is WA48J7700AW/A2. I bought it about 3 years ago from Home Depot. I noticed the brown flaky soft residue a few months ago but I wiped it up and it was ok for awhile until recently I was washing whites and noticed the brown soft flakes on some of my white clothing at the bottom of the drum after the wash cycle was finished. It stained some of my white clothing and sheets. I wiped it up again and decided to run the self clean cycle with hot water... and found a lot more flakes on the bottom of drum . Ran it another time with baking soda and found less flakes. So, I’m now running it again with vinegar and baking soda. Hopefully it will be gone. Samsung ... you guys have a solution for this??? Seems like this is a ongoing prob with this type of washer and from all reviewers on this forum, it seems it’s from about 2-3 years old Samsung toploading washers. Similar model types. What is this stuff? Dead skin? Mildew? Please respond at your earliest convenience!
