Mile 864 front loader - clothes come out with new grease marks
my Miele has started turning out shirts with grease stains on cuffs and collars (no ,arks ar they go in)
On the underside of the rubber seal, there was a slimmy/dirt/oil all way around teh cylinder. Cleaned this off, buit still getting spots
Does anyonne have any ideas where the dirt build up is and how to get rid.
PS we have tried running through a hot cycle with powder and no clothes
Re: Mile 864 front loader - clothes come out with new...
Problem will be the use of fabric softner or too much detergent. The stain you are seeing is generally to animal fat that is present in fabric softner, Best solution is to cut back on the amount of softner being used, same with powder.

If you are sewing a new collar, turning is done after you've sewn three edges together and then you turn the item so the right sides are out and the raw seams are enclosed inside the collar. Then the collar is attached to the garment using the fourth (unsewn) edge. https://www.craftsy.com/blog/2013/12/sewing-perfect-collar-points
Or turning on an old, worn garment is when the collar or cuff is unstitched from the shirt and then flipping it over so the worn part is on the underside and the fresh, clean part is facing up (as against the neck edge or, in the case of a cuff, against the arm). This is an idea from the depression era when people wanted to get more use out of an item that was showing wear. Turn shirt collar

Don't know if this is a front or top loader since you did not supply the model number. But if the stains are grease, it could only mean that the bearing seal has been compromised. Water is getting into the bearings and the bearing grease is what is on your clothes. You need to have the bearing and the seal replaced on your machine.
It is not to bad on a top loader in terms of cost to repair. But, if you have a front loader, that is a different story, since the entire machine needs to be torn apart to get to the bearings and the replacement parts and labor can be as much as a new washer. In either case, get a few estimates before deciding whether to repair or replace the washer. Hope this helps you.
The rollers, guides, or wheels that are used to support the clothes drum may be worn out. When this happens, it may cause the drum to drop down slightly in the front or rear. Clothes can get caught between the front or rear of the drum and the dryer interior. This can cause clothing to have marks and/or tears. Check out the rollers, guides, and wheels for excessive wear or damage. Sure hope this helped ya!
Hi! I am a habitual cleaning type person and clean clothes rate at the top of my list. I have 4 recommendations that SHOULD help tremendously for ALL your clothes but is most evident in your whites.
#1 is the right washer. I NEVER knew how clean my clothes could come out till the past year and a half I finally bought front loader. And let me tell you was I ever surprised at how clean and soft they were, LIKE NEW! Those old top loaders,even the new ones are no comparison to the front loading systems. BUT expensive if you have to go out and buy a new one BUT also a GOOD excuse to tell hubby you need a new one...LOL
#2 Always use liquid detergents, they seem to wash and rinse out so much better than any powder
#3 A HUGE helping hand I discovered some 30 years back that I STILL have not found that can be beat is "BIZ" bleach. It's miraculous! It's a great pre-treater to soak badly needed whites in and helps to retain bright colors if used in non-white laundry. Actually I even use it in a powder form. AFter loading all my clothes in m y front loader I scoop out a cup and actually scatter it OVER my laundry. Then add the liquid detergent (Tide or the like, I get mine at Costco or Sam's club depending on what region you live in) and wash like normal.
#4 Last but not least, for whites and ALL colors I have found nothing better than DAWN dish washing liquid. Immediatelypre-treat ANY stain no matter the size with Dawn and just fold it over and toss it in the laundry. Best if washed within the same week at the latest.
GOOD LUCK to all you Domestic Goddesses! ;-)~
