This is usually an indication that the rear tub bearing is starting to go bad. The bearing is located in the rear shell of the wash tub and cannot be replaced. In order to repair, you would have to replace the entire rear shell because the bearing is actually molded into the plastic. This is common with front loader washing machines. Another possibility could be items getting caught in the rubber door boot and leaving rubber marks. However, normally this will be associated with a leak somewhere. Inspect the entire door boot and clean in behind the rubber. Inspect for any rips, tears, or places where clothes can get caught. I have experienced clothing getting snagged and actually pulling the door boot off. If the marks continue to show up on your clothes (they may even turn a brownish color) I would look into an estimate on how much it would cost to have the tub bearing replaced. It is not an easy repair, and it is not cheap. The cost usually runs around $500. I hope this helps.

First of all relax alright, you are in safe hands.
See every washing machine has a turbine at the bottom f the washing bowl and below that there is a motor. And there wud be a safety valve or (washer ) which basically looks like a ring made out rubber or plastic and when this ring gets outdated or torn it stops controlling the oil flow and thats the reason y ur clothes have the oil stains ,so once it is replaced you will not have this issue.
This would surely help you in getting the clothes clean and tidy.!!!!!!!!!!!!
Have a great day!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The belt could be broken, if not. Unplug washer for 2 minutes, plug back in, open and close lid 7 times, this should reset electronic motor.

I have this problem on my front loading washer too, but only when washing white clothes. I have just read that perhaps the inlet hose is disintegrating from the hot water being too hot. The hose disintergration can cause black greasy stains on the clothes. I am going to check out the inlet hose when I get home. Hopefully this is the problem... I am sure a new inlet hose is a lot cheaper than a new transmission or new bearings. BTW, my washer in only 18 months old.
