    Yeah, I have seen such before. I suppose you have some sort of agitator in the washer drum. Is there any vertical play in that agitator? In other words, can you move it up and down any at all?

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.

Whirlpool cabrio model WTW7340XWO ties cloths into a knot when spinning

You buy another top load high efficiency machine and load the clothes in same manner, you will get same result. No matter whether it is whirlpool or samsung or LG.

If you buy Maytag, Amana, KitchenAid, JennAir, Roper, Inglis and even sometime Kenmore. You will be buying the same Whirlpool Corporation machine with a different face plate.

hey listen your machine drum gone

Kenmore top loading washing machine does not clean clothes well.

I would seriously consider getting a newer machine. A brown stain could be rust, or an oil leak. Either way it probably is not worth putting any money into. If this helps, please rate my answer. Thank you.

Tearing clothing

Either use a more gentle cycle or the agitator may be off centered or could have bad coupler or bearings. Otherwise check the seal on top of tub to make sure it is not ripped and catching clothes

Starting to leave brown oily like stain on clothes

The first place that I'd check would be the small metal screens inside the openings on the water inlet valve. They can get really rusted, epecially in areas with hard water, so I would recommend removing the water supply hoses and take a gander at the screens. They can sometimes release the iron oxide into the wash water and cause brown stains or blotches on clothing. Hope this helped and best wishes.

Black particles in clothes after using a top loading samsung fully automatic washing machine

You said these particles stick to the clothes, do they come off and then leave a stain? It may be grease or oil coming from a leaking drum bearing seal.
If it is, This is a major repair and not one for DIY.
