I have an old Kenmore washer that is working fine,but every now and then we get these dark gray/black smudges on the sides of the tub. We'll see them after we take a load of clothes out. It's not grease, becauyse it comes off my fingers fairly easy, but it feels kind of slimy and a little gritty. I actually think it's something coming into the tub through the holes in the tub, but I'm just guessing.I could have swore that I heard the tub has to be taken out sometimes and something cleaned underneath, or something of that nature, but I can't remember exactly. Any feedback greatly appreciated.

Sounds like it's time to clean the gookus out of the "magic filter."

O.k. thanks. Obviously, I have to get the tub out,and haven't got that far into this washer yet with previous repairs, so any advice or link(s)that can help me get the tub out and get to this filter? Thanks!

Oh, is this actually a filter that can be replaced, or???

Can anyone point me to some sort of guide that will help me get to what is pictured above, so I can clean it? I'd really appreciate it. Thanks!

You'll need to remove the inner basket to get to that filter. This video should get you there...

O.k. thanks again! Is that spanner wrench something that is made specifically for washing machines, and can I get one at a hardware store or??? Also, when you say inner basket, you mean what they are calling the inner tub in the video, yes? :)
That being said, when I pull that inner basket/tub out, will it be pretty self explanatory at that point? This filter.......does it just need to be cleaned?
