Question about Washing Machines
Leaking oil into the washer drum, ruining clothes.
The oil is coming from the transmission and it means the transmission assembly must be changed. There is no way to fix it other than replacement. Sorry. It's a big job, but there are plenty of videos on line now that show step by step how it's done. Let me know if you are interested in doing it yourself.

This washer is a top loader, Right!
I believe it calls for HE ( High Efficient) laundry detergent.
If we use to much of either it will cause this !
This usually happens due to using to much detergent or bleach.
You said, Black oil like residue discharged from washer during use. Stain clothes, almost impossible to remove. Loosened nut on agitator but it will not budge, and am afraid of damage if I try to pry between agitator and bottom of drum.

SOURCE: clothes stuck under the agitator
The clothes do not go under the plate they spin out of the top and fall over the side, this is because socks and underwear are either overloaded or spun out, this can be solved by reducing the load size and also spinning small clothing items on lower speeds, but the solution above is very helpful for getting the clothes out, but you will need a long pair of needle nose pliars to pull the clother out of the bottom of the tub. This problem presented itself by a "LD" error (long drain) Thanks tzweeb and I hope this helps others

Pull the agitator out and check the drive collar splines.If you have the model I think you have just pull straight up on the agitator. Once removed you will see the drive collar with a 7/16 head bolt,remove it and pull off the collar.First before pulling it off spin it if splines are stripped it will spin freely.
