Question about Maytag Washing Machines
This machine has no oil in the tub assembly. Over a period of time and using cold water washes body oil, dirt and undissolved detergents and fabric softener will accumulate at the water line on the inner wall of the outer tub. After the gunk builds up thick enough parts of it will break loose at times when using hot water and then get on the clothes.

IT SOUNDS LIKE YOU MAY HAVE A TRANSMISSION LEAK. AND THERE IS OIL BEING LOST FROM A SEAL. IF THIS IS THE CASE IT CAN BE QUITE COSTLY TO REPLACE, BUT THERE IS PLACES THAT CAN HAVE REBUILT ONES FOR YOUR MODEL. AS THEY OFFER A CORE CHARGE FOR YOUR OLD ONE THIS CAN BE SLIGHTLY OR SOMETIMES A LOT CHEAPER ROUTE TO GO. AS FOR THE LABOUR IT CAN TAKE ANYWHERE FROM 1 HOUR TO 2 1/2 HOURS. YOU CAN CHECK FOR MORE OIL BY LOOKING AT THE INSIDE OF THE CABINET TO SEE IF ANY MORE OIL HAS BEEN LOST. CHANCES ARE THAT THERE WILL BE. HOPE THIS HELPS

This sounds like the drum bearings are starting to wear and allowing grease to infiltrate through the inner seal.Does it sound noisy on the spin cycle.

The only place where oil can enter the wash would be if the bearing seals have failed. It's a major repair, and the entire machine has to be taken apart to replace the bearing and seal.

SOURCE: HAVE BROWN SPOTS ON CLOTHING
This is from not enough HOT loads.
Fatty deposits gather between the basket and tub during COLD washes.
Then they are being released in large numbers when you do your whites on HOT.
It is recommended to do 1 HOT load per week.
Do an empty load with some degreaser added (like Goo-Gone) on the fullest/hottest setting you have.
