Whirlpool Washer is Leaving Clothes Discolored or with Dye Transfer

Are the load items discolored?

Dye transfer can occur when mixing colors in a load. Use the following tips to help prevent dye transfer:

  • Sort loads before laundering.
  • Separate dark load items from lights and whites.
  • Mixing different colors may result in dye transferring to the lighter color items, giving them a dingy appearance.
  • Always use HE Detergent and follow the detergent manufacturer's recommended amount.

Refer to your Use & Care Guide for other questions regarding your model.
