We purchased a Samsung washer (model # WA48J7770AP/A2) about 2 years ago. We started noticing black flakes of what looked like dirt on our clothes about 6 months after owning the washer. We have been doing the self-cleaning cycle once a week since purchasing the washer. Nothing seemed to help with the dirt showing up on our clothes. I eventually started taking my work clothes to a dry cleaning place and paying them $$ every week to clean my nice shirts. Today I decided to take apart the washer and figure out what was going on.
This is what the bottom of the tub looks like right after running a self-clean cycle
I removed the cap in the bottom of the tub and removed the bolt under the cap. I was able to remove the bottom part of the tub it just lifted off and to my surprise, it was full of mold!!! Yuck!!!
SAMSUNG, You need to fix this!!
