Why does the water in my washer turn green after a cycle?

Hello 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? Sears model Kenmore (whirlpool) -- Kenmore_110.92273100 bought 2000 used to 2004 not used 2004 to 2010 started back in use 2010 to 2012. I have the repair manual and parts source from sears Thanks for your input it is appreciated.

There are some metal parts inside that washer tub that could be corroding due to exposure to the well water. You can pull the components out of that tub using the procedure shown in this repair video: Washing Machine Drive Tub Seal Replacement . You can also check for residue inside the tub or on the bottom of the spin basket. If you need to replace some parts, you can order them from this page: Kenmore Washer 110.92273100 Parts . Be sure that you unplug the washer before accessing and replacing internal components.

A problem with the well water supply could be causing this problem to occur according to your details. I recommend that you have the well water tested. You can visit Kenmore Water.com to view solutions for well water problems.
