Front loader leaving black marks

I have the same problem as the poster that posted the post below.

After my clothes have completed the wash cycle, I find I have black marks on some of the clothes. It looks like they were washed with a black felt tip pen. Have you heard of this situation and do you have a solution? I am having a terrible time with these black marks on white clothes. I am ruining so many clothes. Even soaking them in bleach doesn't get these marks off. It's gotten to the point that I'm afraid to do a load of undershirts. My washer is approximately 3 years old. When I wipe the rubber seal by the door, nothing comes off. Where are these marks coming from and how do I fix it.

Washing machine keeps leaving marks on my clothes after washing is finished

If it is a top loader and the marks are black it is an indication the transmission seal in the center shaft is leaking. That is also stating you are getting water in the transmission. It would be a relative expensive repair, consider replacing the unit. If it is a front loader I have no idea.

Black oil or grease on clothes after washing

is you machine a top loader or front loader? if its a front loader the black marks could be from the boot. WIpe the boot with a good cleaner. and try not to over load machine. and if it a top loader your transmission is probably leaking oil back into clothes tub. You could have it rebuilt $$$ or better replace the machine.

Black stains on Laundry from a front load washer.

bob, if your model starts with 417. this is a mother of all jobs. The black marks are coming from the rear bearing assy. in the tub. I just changed one out and it is misery. I don't believe the boot is causing the black marks. When I tore this one apart I found the tub, tub to drain pump hose, pump itself, contaminated with this black crap. Replaced them all. The tub and bearing comes as one piece and it is no fun to put in. The whole washer has to come apart to do this job and it requires two men to do it. The boot (bellow)itself is a pain to install. You might want to check with Sears and see if this is covered under the 5 year warrany on the bearing and tub, parts only, if not, it's not worth the time or back.
