What should I do to stop washer from putting grease on clothes?


Good Afternoon Bernard,

I understand the washer of your Frigidaire laundry center, model# GLEH1642F, is leaving grease in your clothes. I also see that you noticed the grease in the detergent cup. I suggest contacting your local authorized technician for further assistance. They will be able to diagnose your washer and determine where the grease is coming from to be able to repair your appliance. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

Black streaks on my laundry


Marks on clothing in a washer are usually caused by a reaction between detergents and fabric softeners, especially cheaper bargain brands.
If you are sure that the black streaks are getting on the clothing in the washer versus the dryer, it could also be oil from the transmission getting into the washer tub. See if the spots will come out using a petroleum distillate of some kind. (paint thinner, etc). If a petroleum distillate will remove the marks, it is most likely something petroleum based that is making the marks.
This is a rare occurrence, and most marks on laundry are caused by the dryer. Typically, the drum rollers wear out and rubber and metal filings can get into the dryer and mark/streak clothing. Hope this helped and sorry for the problem you are having. Best wishes.

Leaving brown/black smudges


This is most likely caused by laundry getting stuck in the front seal of the washer.

Dirt streaks appear after laundering


Grease seal for the bearings need to be replace. Unless you are a DIYer this is an expensive repair. Labor to install a new grease seal is about 400 to 500 dollars depending on the area. Parts will run about 100 to 150 dollars. The grease seal is cheap about a $10.00 part, but since ypou have the washer torn apart, and the grease seal has fail, you should also replace the bearings.

Water comes up into our tub when washer drains


The washer puts out a lot of water when spinning/ draining, sounds like the house drains are not of sufficient size or possibly blocked causing water to backup into your tub, check house drains for blockage or install seperate drain for washer into main drain that your tub goes into.

Fisher Paykel washer GWL15


I have noticed this same problem and wonder if it because my FP washer wasn't draining properly and dirty water couldn't get out. See my post on "eco smart won't drain, smells hot". I found one of my husband's socks when I removed the black motor/white plastic housing on bottom of washer. tip washer back and you'll see this electric motor. My post tells how to remove it. then you can look into that small space and see if there is something plugging it.

I am waiting on my replacemt motor, and hoping all the dirty streaks are gone. the water I drained out after i removed the sock was really grimy and gritty with dirt. I'm sure the sock has been holding a lot of junk in the bottom of the tub and it would end up on clothes during spin cycle. My issue has been going on for a few weeks and then the motor finally smoked which led to the sock discovery!
