Question about Maytag Neptune FAV6800AW Top Load Washer
I first noticed small pieces/specks of a grey substance adhering to the interior stainless steel wash tub after completing a cycle. If I removed them with my fingernail while still moist, they would scrape off easily and had an oily texture when squeezed. If the grey substance was left to dry on the stainless tub, it would harden and I had to scrape and scratch to remove. The next load of whites I washed had these specks on all the clothes. Some I could scrape off while others left a grey mark on the clothing. I cleaned the tub as per manf. instructions and ran another load of whites only to find the grey substance on the clothing again. Has anyone experienced this? Any ideas on the source/cause?
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.

Tips for a great answer:
TO CLEAN MAYTAG STAINLESS STEEL REFRIGERATOR:
not use abrasive or harsh cleaners such as window sprays, scouring
cleansers, flammable fluids, cleaning waxes, concentrated detergents,
bleaches or cleansers containing petroleum products on plastic parts,
interior and door liners, or gaskets. Do not use paper towels,
scouring pads, or other harsh cleaning tools.
do I clean and care my stainless steel surfaces such as refrigerator
or any other stainless steel made appliance?
NOTE: Just because a cleaner is a liquid does not mean that it is nonabrasive. Many liquid cleaners designed to be gentle on tile and smooth surfaces still damage stainless steel.
