Hi,

The stains if coming from the washer is going to be most likely the to much use of fabric softner, Most of the time it comes from the dryer where the felt seals are wearing thin and pinching the clothes between the drum and the bulkead making these marks, you sill need to verify which one is causing the problem...

I have seen many times, specially if your machine is more than 5 years old, it might be due to transmission Leak which is highly unlikely.

If that's the case, time to change the washer. As the part itself would be around 150 bucks.

The total would be around 300 bucks.

Let me know, if you need further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using

How do I get the outlast lipstick stain out of white pants


Start with alcohol, which works well. Do not rub, or you'll spread the mark. Simply take a clean, white cloth and moisten it with alcohol. Then, blot the lipstick stain, which will disappear. Another home remedy is dishwashing detergent such as Sunlight and Dawn, both formulated to fight grease. For this method of lipstick stain removal, dab on a little detergent, let it set for about 10 minutes, and then gently begin working on the stain from the outside edges inward.

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.

My Frigidaire Washer Leaves Stains all over our clothes


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.

Grease stains from Maytag MAV7200AWW washer


HI! I just posted a question to "justask.com" and am having the exact same problem. I paid $9 for this answer and was happy to pay it because I now know what it is! From what I have been told, it is from the transmission in your washer and will cost at least $400 to fix it (that's just a ballpark figure... I have a Frigidaire and that was the figure I was given). So, basically, it would be more cost effective for you to purchase a new washer.

Washer and / or dryer causing stains


Better check the fabric softener dispenser because if at any time someone added undiluted softener it gum up and release at a later time especially on whites . The drum of dryer may have rust or paint missing inside or on the back , check this out . If drum is missing paint and wet clothing sets on that area long enough they will create rust .
