Question about Washing Machines
I followed the directions on the bottle, but the wash has left small bobbles of sticky grey jelly over the garments I put in the wash. Will rewashing them remove the residue? How do I prevent this happening again?

SOURCE: Lint or soap residue
Sounds more like a build-up of particles that may very well be in the water supply. There is something that you can try to get rid of these particles.
1. With the machine empty start it in normal eash mode and let it fill. Add 1/2 cup bleach to the water and let the machine run completely through the wash cycle. This will help remove any unseen stains or build-up.
2. When the machine drains and begins to refill on the next cycle, add 1/2-1 cup of white vinegar and again, let the machine finish its' cycle.
3. Run the machine through the wash cycle one more time to remove any vinegar that may have been left behind.
This is not a guaranteed method but I have had some success.

SOURCE: stinky laundry
Hi! I have Kenmore Elite 4t and had this same problem: Musty, Moldy smell in washer and on clothes. The Sears Technician suggested that I use a half a cup of Clorox Liquid Bleach and put it in the tub (not the dispenser). NO CLOTHES! Use the longest hottest setting and when it's done clean the inside (underneath rubber tire thingie) and the undernath part of the door with a papertowel. And to always leave the door open. I did what he said with the bleach and it worked. I didn't want to leave the door open because I have 2 cats & was afraid that they would want to go in it, but ended up repeating the bleach thing again because a few days later the horrible smell was back. I leave the door open all the time now and the cats never go in it. They've watched laundry spin around, so I guess they're smart enough to not want to go in it. I have not had this problem again since I always leave the door open and I did this over a month ago. I hope this helps!

ck drain hose end of drain hose should be at least 36 ins from floor also be sure drain hose fits loosely in drain water may be siphoning out resulting low water level to wash/rinse ..also recommend using liquid detergent dry doesn't dissolve good in cold water and even though it may be recommended for front load the lower water levels used may not be enough to dissolve it properly

I was waiting with someone with more experience to post back on your issue. I haven't experienced this issue it but I would not rule out a transmission seal failure causing your oily grey substance in the wash tub. If you want to investigate further you can get the Service Manual from here
take a look at page 38 and on and see if you feel OK with a tear down to the transmission.

The bottom left portion of the display gave
the error message:
Waste Toner Bottle 1 Almost Full. Please call service.
They were still able to print,
however this message would not go away.
Power down the printer using
the normal shutdown method.
Open the top front door.
Remove the cover directly below
the 4 toner cartridges.
The removable cover below the
toner cartridges is actually the Waste Toner Bottle.
Bring this to the dumpster.
There is a round, clear-plastic tab on the underside of the "bottle". Remove this.
Shake the bottle around over the dumpster.
Continue until all the toner has been removed.
Push the clear plastic tab back in place.
Wipe off all toner residue before putting it back into the printer.
Put the waste toner bottle back into place. Power on the Savin. Confirm the message no longer appears and that users are able to print.
