www.fixya.com/.../t14582529-maytag_washing_machine_gets_grease Oct 8, 2012 - Maytag washing machine gets grease on clothes occasionally. ... some of their clothes ruined by grease stains from their front loader Kenmore. .... remove the agitator from a Maytag washing machine Model A407 series 02?
Don't know if this is a front or top loader since you did not supply the model number. But if the stains are grease, it could only mean that the bearing seal has been compromised. Water is getting into the bearings and the bearing grease is what is on your clothes. You need to have the bearing and the seal replaced on your machine.
It is not to bad on a top loader in terms of cost to repair. But, if you have a front loader, that is a different story, since the entire machine needs to be torn apart to get to the bearings and the replacement parts and labor can be as much as a new washer. In either case, get a few estimates before deciding whether to repair or replace the washer. Hope this helps you.
hello. generally this mystery grease comes from an article of clothing placed in the machine, not the machine itself. Problem is once that grease gets in the machine it can stick to the tub and contaminate other clothes in later wash loads. Look for the grease and wipe it away with a product like 409 degreaser. Regards, Joe
hi. i can help. the grease is coming from one of two places. Either some item with grease on it got placed in the machine and the grease transferred to the tub where it will cause the problem until it is spotted and removed with a degreaser, or wears off.
OR the grease is coming from the washer itself. Perhaps some grease oozed out of the mechanicals related to the aggitator.
Either way I would get a strong flash light or trouble light and look carefully in the tub and around the aggitator for grease. Then remove it with a cloth and some degreaser, available at any auto parts store.
Yes you can.
Remember a front loader has no gearbox so no oil is coming from there?
fabric conditioner, washing powder,and oils from our bodys can build up on the tub walls.
All it needs is a good flush out.
You can use dishwashing powder.
Run it through with no clothes in you washing machine on a hot wash or a wash and hold a couple of times to flush it out. NZL
