Front load greasy residue ,

Due usually to much detergent in each load, use smaller amounts.
To much detergent degrades the rubber seals and gaskets and rubber seal also in some front loaders around the door too!

Over the life of a front loading washer the seal/gasket degrades
largely due to the chemicals in the detergent as well as bleach.

Most gaskets/seals get hard and brittle therefore the over the life of a front loading washer

Grease will not come from the interior of the washer, as the machine ages build up deposits under the basket and it is oily, greasy and full of mildew. If can get a spanner wrench from a appliance parts house and remove the basket you will see on machines older than three years a build up starting. I pulled 15 lbs from a 25 year old machine and I had to go get sick outside, it was bad.

Remove agitator cap. Remove bolt underneath. lift off upper agitator and lower. Look for grease under agitator and on splined shaft and clean. Re-assemble be sure to put plastic thrust piece in between upper and lower agitator.

Since this happened from day 1, your water may be the problem. Do you have well water? If so, get a softener system. This will get rid of the iron, which is responsible for rust stains. I really doubt that a new machine would cause rust or grease.

Why didn't you do something five years ago when you first noticed this? It will be much more difficult to get a resolution from the manufacturer after5 years.

SOURCE: grease /oil spots on clothes coming from washer

Hello,
This sounds like the drum bearings are starting to wear and allowing grease to infiltrate through the inner seal.Does it sound noisy on the spin cycle.

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.

If it is grease that is in the tub then the trans is shot. Thats the only part that would result in this. Very pricy part but if you want to order it go to marcone.com with your model number and you can get the parts. I would not recommend fixing this, costs almost as much as new unit.

I have a GE washer model wcxh208aoww that makes a lot of noise on the spin cycle and is leaving stains - some drops of oil it appears and other straight lines of grease. Does this machine merit repair or...


I would advise you to save your repair money and look for another unit. It sounds like the seal and bearing have gone bad and you are seeing the bearing grease on your clothing. Sorry, but you need a priest rather than a doctor for this one..
Check out the whirlpool product line, pretty good and fairly priced as well.

What will cause black grease stains on clothes in a GE washer, when the clothes are not greasy going in. Agitator seems a little loose.


It maybe a bit of grease worked it's way down inside the agitator,check if there is a way to "torque" down the device.

Hi! GE top load washer model number wwse5240 is leaving grease stains inside the machine after laundering and of course on clothes. Not sure how old this machine is.


Your transmission is leaking oil. It's probably 10 to 15 years old for the transmission to be leaking. It can be replaced but it's not a small job. Part 320 in this diagram is your transmission. http://www.appliancepartspros.com/partsearch/model.aspx?model_id=5224109&diagram_id=22255027#d22255027

I am getting stains on my dark clothes that look like oil stains.


Check that the dispenser is clean, it may be gunged up with black gunge, use soda crystals and put machine on hottest wash. If all is clean it could be down to seal gone in drum letting grease into system. Good luck, let me know how it goes.
