Question about Frigidaire FGX831C Top Load Stacked Washer / Dryer
I have read that if the pump is not draining the tub completely, there is an interlock that prevents the high speed spin from engagin. I have had debris caught in my pump several times (kids!!) with similar issues. There is a trap on the line leading from the tub to the pump which is "supposed" to capture debris, but it doesn't work all that well. Check your pump.....

Do you use Fabric softener sheets??If so, than look in the dryer foe one to be caught in there and as it makes contact with the clothes it will actually mark them.If you dont use them than take a long look inside of your washer ,look for something stuck in the tub or around the top clothes gaurd that sits above the edges of the tub.Also ,are you sure its not oil?Oil will leave a distinctive mark that is almost impossible to remove.Most likely it is a item stuck in the Dryer and not the washer.I'll be happy to guide you through this at any time .

i tell customers to remove the drain hose from the stand pipe and vacuum the water out of the washer from the drain hose but because of the pillow this might not work in your case. Now remove the two screws on the front lower panel and pull the panel
in side you will see the drain pump if you did not have a shop vac go to the auto parts store and buy a pair of radiator hose clamps and clamp the hose line as close to the washer as possible.(but put down some towels as water always stays there) then pull the tub to pump hose by depressing the squeeze clamp(now while your at the auto parts id get a screw clamp to replace the spring clamp it makes putting the hose back on a lot easier)pull the hose off.Then pull the pump to drain hose off .Remove the two 5/16 in screws securing the pump to the washer base.Unplug the connector and remove the pump inspect the pump for foreign objects,broken or stripped impeller blades . if the impeller are stripped you will have to replace the pump then form the front of the washer take a piece of water hose with one end cut off and run it down the pump to drain end of the drain and reassemble the unit

I use 2 Tablespoons of Liquid Detergent and a 1/2 to 3/4 scoop of Oxyclean and I have had good results in my Front Loader. Clothes come out very clean and there is no residue on the inside of my washer.

The problem with your front load washer is a broken rear bearing. If you remove the rear panel, you will see brown "gunk" all over.
If you want to repair it on your own, order this:

Suggests that motor not not tuning heavy loads due to worn belt or motor.. you could check if Carbon Brushes are worn if they are fitted some motors dont use them..good luck
