Grease seal for the bearings need to be replace. Unless you are a DIYer this is an expensive repair. Labor to install a new grease seal is about 400 to 500 dollars depending on the area. Parts will run about 100 to 150 dollars. The grease seal is cheap about a $10.00 part, but since ypou have the washer torn apart, and the grease seal has fail, you should also replace the bearings.

Lg washer leaving black greasy marks on clothes


This is usually to do with fabric softener. Dilute it with more water. The fabric softener makes clots, and these make the marks on your clothing.

Hope it helps

My (gallery) front load is making my load dirty after the wash. I noticed that if I wash in cold water is not as bad as when I wash with warm/hot water.


Sounds like deposits or dirt coming from hot water tank or line running to washer.Turn off water supplies to washer and remove the hoses from the back to see if the filters/strainers in each port are dirty.If not add a little CLR to the washer and let it run a cycle.Hope this helps.Wouldnt hurt to check the drain strainer either on the bottom of the wassher if you remove the little access panel, might be something in there making water dirty

Clothes are dirtier after washing...


The problem with your front load washer is a broken rear bearing. If you remove the rear panel, you will see brown "gunk" all over.
If you want to repair it on your own, order this:
