Samsung Washer WA45H700A (top load high efficiency machine) continuously leaves brown flakes/slime on clothes or in washer tube after running a load of laundry. Numerous people on the Samsung website forums are reporting the same issue. Water is being trapped internal to the machine and causing mold/mildew growth, which is then finding it's way into washing tub. I follow all owners manual recommendations - inlet filters are clean, Clean cycle is run when machine says it needs to be run, unit is left open after running laundry, use high efficiency detergent in minimal quantity.
