I originally noticed some small brown spots on our clothes after they were washed. They seemed to come out dirtier than they went into the washing machine. I then did every self cleaning imaginable. I did this several times and still found the small black spots. I cleaned every nook and cranny I could find. Still spotsThen I did more research and found a community of people with the same issue! Could this mold/mildew be the cause of my husbands breathing problems? I’m completely sickened by this. I’ve always done any regular maintenance of the machine that is recommended. I never use too much detergent. I’m mad that I let this happen without knowing but really how could I have known it was like that? So disgusted by Samsung as it seems according to the community on their website that they do not back their products and blame the consumer for improper care. I just want them to take responsibility for this issue as it is not a consumer problem but a flaw in the design of their product. There are numerous complaints regarding Samsung Top Load Washer.
