Question about Frigidaire Washing Machines

1 Answer

I notice when I iron my shirts that there are oil spots on my clothing. It's a clear oil which can't seemed to be removed. Is something like the transmission leaking in the washer? I don't see where anything could leak in the dryer. Also nothing went through the machine like Chapstick as this appears to be an ongoing problem.

My Frigidaire FTF530FS Front Load Washer appears to be leaking oil and it is getting on my clothes


Hello Loree Grudem - This can be the result of the shaft bearing and seal. They may have become worn and the transmission oil is creeping up to get in your water. Once this happens, it gets on your clothes to cause staining. Or possibly you have a buildup of fabric softener that comes loose and puts a greasy like substance in your water and on your clothing. Once you put your clothes in the dryer and the old fabric softener melts you will see these spots. I suggest contacting a professional to move forward accurately.

Hi, can you teach me on how to use jobos dye. Appreciate if you could the complete step by step... Thanks


For this project, we will be making a basic sunburst design on a t-shirt.

  1. First, wash the -shirt in order to remove any possible dirt and prepare it for dye absorption. Tie-dying is best done on damp fabric.
  2. Cover our work area with newspaper to protect it from any spills, and assemble all your tools.
  3. Wear rubber gloves to prepare the dye. Carefully follow the manufacturer's instructions provided on the package.
  4. Our particular fabric dye, Venus, for example, calls for the powder to be dissolved in boiling water to get the best, fastest results possible. So fill the large container with lukewarm water, bring to boil, and pour in the dye, starting with the lightest color if you are using more than one color.
  5. While the water is coming on a boil, lay the t-shirt flat on your work area. Grab the center of the t-shirt with your thumb and index finger, and lift it up. Run your other hand down the cloth, twisting the fabric as you gather it together tightly.
  6. Wrap one rubber band around the gathered t-shirt, right below the spot where you lifted. Then, wrap a few more rubber bands, about one to two inches apart from each other. Feel free to make up your own spacing.
  7. Once you're satisfied with the rubber band placement, immerse the entire t-shirt in the first color dye. Boil the t-shirt for 10 minutes , stirring constantly. Then, stir 4 level tablespoons of salt into the mixture for each gallon of water used. Boil for another 20 minutes, stirring constantly.
  8. Remove the t-shirt and rinse in cold running water. Wring out the garment until water runs almost clear.
  9. For designs requiring more than one color, repeat steps 3 to 8, using colors in order from lightest to darkest.
  10. When you have finished dying the garment, remove rubber bands and lay t-shirt flat on your workspace. Place a towel over the still-damp garment, and iron it flat.

6 years old hoover washer dryer. Not all, but some light colored tee shirts coming out with what appears to be oily spots. Tried bleach and dishwater tablet as suggested by another forum, but to no avail....


Hi there monobloc,

I've gone through this too. Dishwashing liquid soap, specifically with grease cutting properties. It does take a few cycles to clean it all out though.

Irons will not heat properly


This may sound weird, but try them at someone else's house, it could be possible that your wiring is not allowing them the amperage they need to heat properly.
