Have found small puddles of gold colored oil around the front legs of the top load washer, smells like gear oil, but everything seems to be working alright, no grinding noises etc. Has only happened twice in 6 months. The unit is approx 6-7 years old.

The only thing that could have leaked oil out is the actual transmission of the unit. You are going to need to consult a professional technician for further repair and assistance. You might want to get a repair estimate and weigh your options of repairing versus purchasing a new Frigidaire unit with a manufacturer's warranty.
the most likely cause if the oil looks like motor oil that you put in your car but only thicker,is that it is leaking from the transmission which is very common in ge washers the oil is in the transmission to lube the gears which make the machine agitate to be sure you could remove the front panel and would see alot of oil in the base frame to remove the panel place a screwdriver between the panel and top and feel around and find 2 clips (one on each side) press on those clips while pulling the panel out
The smell of rotten eggs normally means you have some water that has been sitting arround awhile and has gone bad. You may have to unplug your machine and remove the front cover to take a look arround the inside of your machine to see if any water has leaked out and has puddled up. You may also have something caught in the drain pump's filter, which may have gone rotten from sitting around too long. This filter is easy to unscrew and gain access to once you have the front cover off. Make sure you have lots of towels or a wet vac handy when you unscrew the filter cover.
