SOURCE: oil-like stains on wahsed clothing.

Around the white plastic rim right above the steel tub, link gets caught. I have only been able to remove it with my fingers every week or so and this seems to stop the "spotting/striping" of stains on my cloths. I would also like to know the RIGHT answer to this one. Thanks

My washing has yellow stains on white items especially around collars and cuffs Also bed linen


Since I do not know the style or type I may not answer your question but from experience it sounds like water is leaking into the transmission causing the oil to come past the seal into the wash causing the stains. Try these links and see if they help.

Gunk gets on clothes-stains them,i pulled agitator out and cleaned it off ran bleach thru-its better but still getting on clothes


The problem may be the seal on the transmission failing. If this happens, grease from the transmission (necessary for it to function) will leak and float (recall from science class that oil is less dense that water) up into the washer. As the grease enters the tub, it stains your clothes.

My LG Front Load washing machine is leaving black streaks and smudges on my clothing. These streaks and smudges are ruining my clothes!


Hi,

There can be several things that can cause this problem. The most common are:

1. Fabric softener - did you switch brands lately?

2. Chlorine bleach - if added at the wrong time

3. A mechanical problem with the washer, like a leaky transmission leaking oil.

4. Rust staining, sometimes caused by the water being used in the machine.

Here is a link to a site that discusses this issue more in depth:

My Kenmore Elite Top-Load Series 700 Washer leaves streaks on clothing. It looks like dusty powder. I use liquid HE detergent. It was a normal cycle of dark clothes, not heavily soiled or dirty. Also


THE stains on your clothing especially on whites are most likely due to a top seal failure on your transmission. transmission leaking oil. if the clothing affected or the stain can be removed with a solvent like gas, kerosene, paint thinner repair on washer will exed the value .... if the streaks or stains can be removed with a water soluble detergent then the stains are caused by the soap and or hard water deposits in your washer . then the solution to cut way down on soap usage in your washer and or running an acid wash (soap is alkaline acid will dissolve it . make sure not to over solvent your clothes and to rinse all solvents out completely . be careful !!!! a solvent soaked t-shirt bunched up and left in tightly sealed plastic bag WILL CATCH ON FIRE!!!!

CLOTHES COMING OUT OF WASHER WITH DARK STAINS


Hi Lynn, this is AP.

I understand you are seeing stains and lint on your clothes once removed from your top load washer, model FWS833A. There could be several culprits causing this to happen. To confirm, are the stains not being removed during cycle or do you believe the washer is the cause of the stains? If you believe the stains are being caused from the washer it could possibly be undiluted liquid fabric softener poured directly on fabric. Something more serious could be a broken transmission causing oil to leak in the tub.

There are some basic troubleshooting tips for lint to check such as undissolved detergent can leave residue on clothing. Separate clothing items which shed lint from items which attract lint. Permanent press, synthetic, knit and corduroy items will pick up lint from towels, rugs and chenille bedspreads. Make sure to Use correct amount of detergent, water temperature and water level.

There are some simple troubleshooting tips listed above and in your owner's manual, if you find they do not resolve your concern I would recommend contacting a local authorized technician to inspect the washer.

Thanks,

Grease inside washer


"When the seal starts to fail, this oil floats up into the wash water in the form of small black drops. The stains are almost impossible to remove from clothing. Also, as the oil is leaking up, hot soapy water is leaking down into the transmission, which will eventually cause it to fail. As I recall, the seal wasn't difficult to replace, but to get access to it,you basically have to disassemble the whole machine.

Dark greasy stains after washing


When the seal starts to fail, this oil floats up into the wash water
in the form of small black drops. The stains are almost impossible
to remove from clothing. Also, as the oil is leaking up, hot soapy
water is leaking down into the transmission, which will eventually
cause it to fail.

The seal wont be difficult to replace,but to get access to it you have to
basically disassemble the whole machine. The hardest part was pulling the agitator off the shaft - I
use a slide hammer puller. I'd start by pulling the agitator off and
see if you can access the transmission seal that way - perhaps yours
will be easier than mine was.

Hi! GE top load washer model number wwse5240 is leaving grease stains inside the machine after laundering and of course on clothes. Not sure how old this machine is.


Your transmission is leaking oil. It's probably 10 to 15 years old for the transmission to be leaking. It can be replaced but it's not a small job. Part 320 in this diagram is your transmission. http://www.appliancepartspros.com/partsearch/model.aspx?model_id=5224109&diagram_id=22255027#d22255027

My clothes are being stained by brown/black marks. I think it is an oil leak into the drum. Is it a seal and is it easy to fix? Frigidaire Gallery Model # FWT647GHSO


Spots on clothing in a washer are usually caused by a reaction between detergent and fabric softeners, but to check and see if these spots are petroleum based (oil), try removing the spots with solvent. If the spots will come out with solvent, but not with soap and water, then it could be transmission oil that is leaking into the tub and this is very bad news. This was a common problem on the older GE and Hotpoint washers. Sorry to hear about the problem that you are having and I hope this helped. Best wishes.
