You have to clean the filter once a month. Which located lower left. Do a tub cleanse. Rinse extra. That will clear your problem. I have had the same issue and many repairmen and that was the answer. As long as I clean it than grease marks

SOURCE: stains

This problem is caused from fabric softner, building up in the system and pipes. IT takes alot of flushing to get rid of this to remove it.  It will also be in the outley pipe.  Also there should be a draining plug undo this and then flush out the washing machine with a hose you will notice black gunk coming out.  Also remove the draining pipe and clean it out under a bath tape it will take many goes to clean it or just buy a new pipe.   Nonetheless a bit of elbow grease will fix it.  Good Luck  Kylie

SOURCE: Clear greasy stains appearing on clothes from brand new LG front loading washer

the grease i'm sure would be coming from the machine. look at the water solenoids, detergent dispenser, dispenser solenoids, everything with rubber hoses.

they do put a clear grease just to insert the hose easier in the plant. and if it was not removed during QC, then it would come out now as you uses it.

tnx 4 using fixya,

SOURCE: Black marks on clothes

My wife complained that we were having similar problems recently. After investigation I located the remains of a pen entering the filter and removed this and did a few empty boil washes to remove any remains of ink and this worked for us. Check the filter and hose between the drum and filter.

SOURCE: oily spots on clothes after washing, no oil or

sounds like the seal at the base of the tub is allowing oil to leak from the bearing (that is allowing the tub to spin on the motor shaft.
Not much to do unless you are good with tools and can remove the tub and replace the seal. (This is sorta like the seal between the transmission and engine on a car, or around the main motor bearing)

SOURCE: grease stains on clothes from LG washer (tromm 2688)

I have the exact same problem and I have NEVER used fabric softner. My washer is less than a year old. It is wiped down after each use, the door is left open, and we clean the trap out at least monthly.

Gunk gets on clothes-stains them,i pulled agitator out and cleaned it off ran bleach thru-its better but still getting on clothes


The problem may be the seal on the transmission failing. If this happens, grease from the transmission (necessary for it to function) will leak and float (recall from science class that oil is less dense that water) up into the washer. As the grease enters the tub, it stains your clothes.

OIL STAIN ON A CLOTHES out of washing machine E12477


Are they getting the oil stain from the washing machine? If so, you need to get a tech out to inspect your washing machine. If you are putting oily clothes into the washing machine hoping it will come out, it's too late, you need to pre-wash with Shout or Tide to remove oils and grease. The more you wash and dry it the deeper the stain will set. Sounds like you need to throw those clothes away.

2nd time I have oil stains on my clothes from Whirlpool LSR9434PQ1 and nothing gets them out. Need to know how to get the stains out and what kind of washing machine is better so that I can replace. Spent...


You can try Lestoil to get the grease out, it has surfactants that will help break up the grease, if they aren't set too deeply. This seems to me to have a leaking transmission if you are constantly getting grease on the clothes. A better machine is anything newer that you can afford, quite honestly, there is only your preference to what you want/need for your usage.
Hope this helps, please rate service and comment, Thank You,
Joe

how old is the machine... 9 times out of 10 when there is grease deposits, the tranny is starting to go, and throwing grease in the machine. Happens with all washers near the end of their life.

Grease spots and stains


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
