Question about Frigidaire ATF6000ES Front Load Washer
My clothes keep coming out with black grease-like smears on them. Not every garment, but at least 3-5 items (especially towels).
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.
