My Hoover 600mb won't completely spin dry on medium to heavier loads. Clothes still wet. Barrel still spins on most cycles.

Make sure the belt isn't loose or slipping, also check that the machine is pumping out properly. These will cause poor spin results. The MB series is a Simpson clone. if the clutch housing has started to throw oil / grease out, the clutch may be slipping. This fairly easy to diagnose. See if there is a "tide mark" of oil and grease around the cabinet in line of where the clutch is. (That is the gear shaped plastic bit which fits behind the main drive pulley under the gearbox under the machine) If there is a really bad oil stain / marks it will be a good idea that the gearbox / clutch has failed. Time for a new machine. generally, they are not economical to fix if the gearbox / clutch has failed.

What kind of grease i should use for washing machin to new oil ring

I would use vaseline. Remember, if it takes grease, which many of them don't, you need to use a grease that is not oily, because oil will rot rubber.
You could also use a white lithium grease, or sililcone grease.
Be blessed.

I have an Imperia Spremy electric tomato grinder machine and while using the machine I see that the sauce starts to come out black and I have to keep washing all the parts! what is the problem with the...

We have same problem. going to the store, they told us it is normal there is grease coming out but should not come out of in the sauce. They changed our motor but told us to lift the side of the machine where the sauce comes from. After few different tries, here is our solutions/ advices:
-lift the machine by putting the 2 feet on a pc of wood of 1 1/2"/ 2" height. That way, your machine will be angled having where the sauce comes out higher than where you plug the machine.
-change the plastic ring & rubber ring each year to ensure the thickness is good enough to seal/ hold the grease close to the motor pin area. To avoid coming in the sauce.
- while pressing the tomatoes the grid cones gets full of pulp which sometimes blocks a bit & makes the juice coming out partially with the
skin & seeds and maybe as well coming close to the motor which would mix with the grease. To avoid that: take a rigid plastic spatula and while making the sauce, scrape the accessible front cone grid w/ the spatula to clean it/ clear it. Every 4liters of sauce made, I remove the red slide to also scrape/ clean the back of the cone grid. All this is made without washing all pcs and it looks like we fixed our problem of grease in the sauce. We made 10 big tomato boxes in 2 days and we washed the pcs 3 times.
If I am not clear, let me know, I can explain w/ pictures!

GE WSXH208FWW washer leaving spots on clothes

If you are getting round dark spots on your clothes after washing, the problem would be cause by a bearing seal leak. What happens is water leaks pass the seal into the bearings, and the grease leaks back into the wash water. To fix it would require the machine to be literally taken completely apart to get to the bearings. Very costly to repair. Sorry.

Clothes have dark streaks after washing this is a kenmore front loading washer model number 417.42142100

I read post after post about this very same problem, it is caused by a failure of the bearing that the tub rides on, this causes the grease seal to leak and then the streaks which are grease stains from the rear bearing

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.

Grease on clothing, AGAIN. Have had the wash plate replaced, but the problem returned within a year.

Try changing your detergent. I believe it was Tide that caused dark grease type marks on my clothing. It hasn't been a problem since I changed detergents.
