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.

SOURCE: have a speed queen washing machine that is

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

THANKS

SOURCE: grease /oil spots on clothes coming from washer

Hello,
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.

My Maytag Atlantis dryer is vibrating and shaking terribly. It is still drying the clothes though. What can I do to fix this problem?


ALWAYS UNPLUG YOUR DRYER BEFORE STARTING ANY REPAIRS
Your problem sounds like drum rollers have flat spots on them or in need of lubrication.
Check your drum rollers for flat spots or wear, if they have flat spots or wear on them replace them. If the drum rollers don't have flat spots or wear on them then they probably only need lubrication. Lubricate the shaft of the rollers with a good grade of machine oil such as 3 in One oil. Reassemble the dryer, plug back in. This should solve your noise problem. I will include these two websites for parts and further help: http://www.partselect.com/ http://www.appliancepartspros.com/index.aspx Both also have chat assistance 24/7.

Washer is leaving huge brown spots on clothing


Re-wash the clothing a couple of times , and see if the spots come out . If they do , that means you are using a liquid fabric softener , and the softener is not completely dissolving .Either set the wash for a longer period of time and use warm or hot water , or , use softener sheets in the dryer .
If the spots are oil , they probably cannot be removed , and replaceing the washer , would be the suggestion .

Frigidaire FSGC747GE gas dryer is causing spots


you may need to replace the upper and lower drum felts, if they are worn, some of the clothing may be getting caught agains the drum and getting a mark on them. if the mark is like a pencil line mark it will be from the dryer, if it is more like an oil spot it will be from your washer. take a look at #20 & 21 in this picture.you may also need to replace the rear bearing which is #12 in this other picture. hope these help you.

Brown spots on clean white clothes


The drum seal is bad in your dryer. Those brown spots are burn marks. It's actually burning your clothes. Unfortunately this is not an easy fix. The same thing happened to my wife and I. I can fix many things, but I decided this wasn't worth fixing since I'd have to take apart the whole dryer to fix it. It would've been very time consuming and you'd have to have the technical ability to tackle the job. We just bought a new dryer.

I have a Maytag Dryer MDE9806AYW Intelli Dry SQUEALS


Yes its worth repairing, it sounds like a simple fix, could be pulley, or seal replacement but for the price of some machine oil, or part, well worth it. The intelli dry pulls apart from front, with the door and top is hinged. A little time consumeing but I think still worth it.

Loud noise in spin mode and black spots


This is joyce
How old is this unit?
this can be costly to fix, it may not be worth the cost, may just replace, the barrons in drum sounds like they are shot and the oil is from the inside gasket, my friend at work had the manufacture to replace her dryer because of this. you may want to call them if your unit is not to old, they also may have recall on your unit so call and make sure of this before you discard unit. go to webb site I have never heard of your unit so I am not familar with who makes this unit.
thanks
please grade me at end of session

Oil Like Stains on dark cotton Clothes - Whirlpool duet


Problem Solved !!!
Ok, I had to stop and tell everyone about my latest experience. When we moved here we bought the nice Whirlpool front load washer and dryer set. I Love them....still don't understand how my clothes get clean with so little water, but love them. ..................That is until lately. I was really upset about a total of 4 white blouses that looked to have some kind of light splattered stains on them after washing. I would try to wash them again with a stain remover sprayed or scrubbed on the spots, but they wouldn't come clean. I gave up and considered the blouses ruined. I told William what was happening and he called the repair man out because he thought it might be some kind of part in the machine that was leaking oil onto the clothes when they were washing. The guy came out and told William that there wasn't anything that could go into the washer tub and get onto the clothes. He then looked around in the washer and at the little detergent dispenser drawer. He suggested that we use 1 cup of Clorox and 1/4 cup of dish washer detergent (cascade with dawn degreaser crystals) on a hot to medium water temperature and turn it on a complete wash cycle to make sure that we didn't have mold and mildew setting up in our machine. After he left, I proceeded to do what he told us. I though.....the blouses are probably ruined anyway. I had tried to get out all the spots to no avail, so what the heck......I threw them into the mix too! Would you believe they came out clean, very bright white (instead of yellowed or dingy from continued wear) and the washer smells as sweet as it did when it was new. Why didn't they tell me about this when I bought it ??????????? I plan on putting the detergent mix in the washer every couple of months and throwing in all the whites that I can find to take advantage of the cleaning effect on the whites. (I thought that maybe some of you had gotten stains on white clothes that you would like to get out too)
