That is exactly what it is, grease. It is coming from the transmission past a worn or defective seal usually the transmission will have to be replaced.

Greasy marks on clothes in top loading washing machines can also be caused by...


90% of greasy marks on cloths is due to scum build in the outer bowl of your machine...top loaders being the most vulnerable. prevention is better than cure. At least one hot wash a week on high level. If your machine is an early model one or two with a good bleach subject to manufacturers instruction...bleach is very cost effective and works well.

Grease on clothes


If this is petroleum lubricating grease (not cooking oil / grease) use paper towels moistened with paint thinner to lightly dissolve/remove the grease stain, then wash as usual.

When we run the wash, black marks appear on some clothes. No pens or foreign objects are in the washer.


It can either be the rubber seal around the washer door or the bearings (normally sealed) for the tub may be leaking and getting grease into the tub. I think usually the bearing grease is brown in color. For some reason, as the rubber seals deteriorate, they tend to mark up clothes. At least that has been my experience. You may try wiping them down with some sort of cleaner (fantastic, greased lightening, etc) and see if that helps any.

Check and make sure the seal at the bottom of the washer is not wore out. Alot of times you will get grease from the bearins and drum assembly if this wears out.
