No not any filter this will more then likely bearings leaking grease that is packed into it just c if your inner drum moves up or down by placing your hand on the outer part of the inner door and place your fingers on the inner drum now lift your fingers up if it does move then your bearings are starting to collapse which is quite an exspensive job average price £125.00 to replace the bearings but if this washer is still under guarantee then get them out and thats what the stain comes from and it will alwys do it also if it doesnt move it can still be a bearing problem that its just leaking through the rubber seal and the bearings are fine eva way it comes frim the bearings m8

My LG Front Load washing machine is leaving black streaks and smudges on my clothing. These streaks and smudges are ruining my clothes!


There can be several things that can cause this problem. The most common are:

1. Fabric softener - did you switch brands lately?

2. Chlorine bleach - if added at the wrong time

3. A mechanical problem with the washer, like a leaky transmission leaking oil.

4. Rust staining, sometimes caused by the water being used in the machine.

Here is a link to a site that discusses this issue more in depth:

OIL STAIN ON A CLOTHES out of washing machine E12477

Are they getting the oil stain from the washing machine? If so, you need to get a tech out to inspect your washing machine. If you are putting oily clothes into the washing machine hoping it will come out, it's too late, you need to pre-wash with Shout or Tide to remove oils and grease. The more you wash and dry it the deeper the stain will set. Sounds like you need to throw those clothes away.

Yellow stains on my clothes

Check carefully inside the drum. There may be something coloured like a crayon jammed in there that rubs against your clothing.
You could also try purchasing a washing machine " Cleaning solution" from your local hardware store and putting that through a cycle to flush out the machine.
After that, if this persists, the next suspect is "the dreaded oil or grease leak" from machine bearings. That unfortunately usually means a complete machine stripdown and rebuild to rectify and may be unviable economics for you.

Oil spots on clothes

HI Friend,
First of all relax alright, you are in safe hands.
See every washing machine has a turbine at the bottom f the washing bowl and below that there is a motor. And there wud be a safety valve or (washer ) which basically looks like a ring made out rubber or plastic and when this ring gets outdated or torn it stops controlling the oil flow and thats the reason y ur clothes have the oil stains ,so once it is replaced you will not have this issue.
This would surely help you in getting the clothes clean and tidy.!!!!!!!!!!!!
Have a great day!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
And please rate me so that I can improve myself(vote).

Oil-like stains on wahsed clothing.

Around the white plastic rim right above the steel tub, link gets caught. I have only been able to remove it with my fingers every week or so and this seems to stop the "spotting/striping" of stains on my cloths. I would also like to know the RIGHT answer to this one. Thanks

My Washing machine stains clothes; they come out with brown rusty stains. Otherwise the washing machine works fine. my washing machine is lessthen three years old and always give brown stains in white...

I had the same problem, and it turns out that it is NOT the seal. It is the liquid fabric softener. The fabric softener dispenser needs to be cleaned periodically or it gets a black waxy, goopy, build up. It is this same buildup that ends up staining your clothes with dark brown or black stains. Just remove the dispenser and wash it our very well and the problem will be gone.

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.
