I do this once a month diligently and have only had my washing machine for less than 2 years. Just a couple of months ago, I started noticing the same brown flaky stuff after washing my clothes with my Samsung washing machine. And it has been there ever since. However, it's no longer under warranty and I need to pay approximately rm100 just for a technician to come and look at my item. A technician who will obviously not be able to provide a solution as I can see via the comments here and hence I have decided not to spend that money on a faulty item. Samsung should own up to their faults and do something about it. It's utterly disappointing to what Samsung as a brand has become. I have been for years supporting the brand and your new items now I.e. phone and washing machine has been thoroughly disappointing. Mostly I hear that everyone complains about the same thing but obviously Samsung is not providing proper and long term solution to your customers.
