Kenmore_110.92273100 Green Tint in water fresh water clear. would bleach and detergent solidify on botton and create green tint? well water.

I am repairing the washer for Mr Organus that has a Kenmore_washer #110.92273100

Would something like corroded like parts or a combo
of detergent and bleach cause a residue that puts
green tint into water after a wash? Incoming water does
not make a cotton cloth become light green only after agitation in tub.

We clean washer and weeks later the green tint comes back to a cotton cloth.
The incoming water was taken and the cloth (100% cotton) was not tinted green.

Also at one point months ago the owner took bleach (Americas Choice) and detergent
(Brand: Extra) and put it into tub before adding water and we had rinsed it several times
and the water cleared up. Four months later it came back also the well water is a bit acidic.
Could a part get corroded and make green water in the tub?

For Dawn: On that Maytag Neptune washer, you likely have a problem with the tub seal and bearing. I recommend that you have a service technician examine and repair that type of problem. That repair will normally require special tools and expertise that go beyond a do-it-yourself project. You can schedule service through this link:
