It looks like they have been splashed with mud. If you scratch across the spot it will come up but leave a light brown stain.

Answer: 
Try using Afresh washer cleaner or you may need to wipe the tub ring on the top. Sometimes dirt builds up on this rubber like surface and can transfer to the next loads.

Lucy,
I am unsure why you have spotting on your clothing. I apologize for that. If you feel that the washer isn't performing properly and is the cause of this, I would suggest that you call The Home Depot/ Whirlpool Hotline at 877.461.3376 Option 2, Option 1. The parts and service specialist would be able to assist you further. Thank you.

Should this model have a tub light? Manual says it should light when door is opened or when cycle signal button is held down. But there's no light.

Answer: 
Funny you ask that, I was reading a previous review and noticed they had mentioned a tub light - I do not have one. I don't see how it would have benefited me to have one though, the tub is so big I can't imagine not seeing a rogue sock left behind!

CUSTOMER REVIEWS

Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 1013 reviewers.
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Dirty clothes go in dirty clothes come out First off this washer isn't energy efficient to me because I have to wash everything on heavy bulky (73 minutes) just to get my clothes semi clean. It basically sprinkles water on your clothes while it turns. You would be better off to get someone to spin your clothes in the air while you poor two 20 oz bottles of water on them. I would suggest seeing this machine in action before you buy. The cheap washer I used in college with the agitator and high water level definitely out performs this. Your clothes never soak in water. There are lots of good washers out there this isn't one of them. October 29, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Washer! We love our Cabrio Platinum 4.8 CU Ft HE washer! It has worked great so far! March 3, 2015
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Leaves Clothes Dirty This washer seems to clean well EXCEPT for the fact that it leaves gray/white dust on the clothes after the cycle ends. Sometimes its out of control how much is left behind. You need a lint roller or a brush to get it off afterward. A blanket may be left completely covered in this stuff and you have to throw it back in a few times on the rinse cycle to help out. Using an extra rinse doesn't do the trick. Having to re-wash things is not economical either. If you leave the lid closed, a moldy mildew smell builds quickly, as does mold itself. You must use the Affresh cleaning tablets once or twice a month. It is fairly quiet which is nice. As someone else said it does wring the clothes very tightly and wrinkles them but gets a lot of water out. After a cycle in the drier they seem ok. In short, don't buy this - its a headache. The machine has also leaked onto the floor already and had to have a part replaced (under 1 year old). Attached is a photo of a sweatshirt hood with the dust on it. This is pretty typical. Although its been less common lately, blankets have been covered in this and dark clothes can often have this all over them or in big patches. Very irritating. Of course, whirlpool had nothing helpful to say. October 11, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by I bought this exact model, it has caused me a lot of stress. The first mishap was when the clear top separated from the lid, evidently because, the lid arrived broken from the manufacturer and now the entire lid has completely separated itself from the top of the machine. I thought I could live with that since it was at least $200.00 to replace a year old lid! What? Upon further scrutiny, I noticed the tub and light fixture (is completely rusted out, it's so bad I have pictures) and has been leaving RUST spots on my clothes....and that's if it isn't dripping bleach on my dark laundry!!! This machine twists laundry into the biggest mess....when it's taking a break from actual clothing destruction. It doesn't use enough water to wash the laundry; much less, rinse the laundry. I live for the day until I can AFFORD to throw this machine to the curb. This has been the longest 2 years of my life. Do NOT buy this machine. November 13, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by We love our new washer Gets clothes really clean, love all the features. Fits perfectly in our spot. I was a little surprised how long it take for a large load (50+ minutes). March 20, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great for families! We are a family of 5 so I wanted a large tub size to do extra large loads (like the kind I did in the triple size washer at the Laundromat). This machine does A LOT in one load and fits an adult sleeping bag very comfortably. In one load I fit 4 large (decorative) sofa cushions and was still able to put in some towels & clothes and still the tub was not filled to capacity! I love the bleach & softener dispensers. The cycle length times are quite long, I don't think any are under 44mins, but I get the less agitation therefore longer cycle thing. The clothes are not treated harshly at all, its all about gentle, longer washing time which I did worry about getting the clothes clean, but they do come out clean and I consider myself somewhat of a clean freak! I will say though in terms of the cycle times if you dry a load whilst washing a load it works out because drying takes about 50mins anyway.This fits my need for big basin to do less loads and therefore less time doing laundry!
