Grease is leaking into the drum under the agitator cone.

Remove the agitator cone. There will likely be a removable plastic piece with an O-ring. Oil could be leaking out of the O-ring into the washer, and water could be leaking into the bearings. If there is damage to the O-ring replace it, or if there is a bunch of schmag that is compromising the seal, clean it out, and re-install everything. This solved the problem in my washer; hopefully it works for you.

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


Hi,

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:

I am getting black streaks on clothes after washing.


Make sure the washer is level, especially front to back. Do not overload washer. Check to see if marks are coming from build up of gunk in the outer bowl.

Loud grinding noises and black streaks on clothes


Your drum rollers may be going bad (grinding noise) which will sometimes cause the drum to drop slightly, creating a gap where the clothes get caught as the drum rotates. (black streaks)

Black streaks on my laundry


Marks on clothing in a washer are usually caused by a reaction between detergents and fabric softeners, especially cheaper bargain brands.
If you are sure that the black streaks are getting on the clothing in the washer versus the dryer, it could also be oil from the transmission getting into the washer tub. See if the spots will come out using a petroleum distillate of some kind. (paint thinner, etc). If a petroleum distillate will remove the marks, it is most likely something petroleum based that is making the marks.
This is a rare occurrence, and most marks on laundry are caused by the dryer. Typically, the drum rollers wear out and rubber and metal filings can get into the dryer and mark/streak clothing. Hope this helped and sorry for the problem you are having. Best wishes.

White streaks on dark clothes after washing.


Reduce the load !!

You are getting white streaks because the clothes are so compressed the machine is not agitating them correctly.

My daughter gets the same problem and she still insists on packing the clothes in.

My wife washes the same clothes for her with the right load and they come out fine

Gray marks, streaks or smudges on clothing after a wash
cycle.
CONDITION:
CAUSE:
At the end of the cycle, the wash plate nutates for
approximately 30 seconds to fluff the clothing after the
final spin. The action of fluffing causes the outer wash
plate seal to rub against the stainless steel basket while
they are both relatively dry. This condition causes the gray
discoloration.
RESOLUTION:
An updated machine control, part number 8542693, is
now available. The updated control reduces the fluff time
from 30 seconds to 8 seconds, allowing the clothing to be
fluffed, without causing discoloration.
Gray marks or smudges can be washed out of clothing
after wiping down the basket. The consumer should use
the recommended amount of HE detergent and the hottest
water safe for the fabric or hand wash the garment under
running water. In either case, the fabric must be cleaned
prior to running through the dryer.

Would suggest doing a full hot empty load, using bleach according to bottle instructions. It sounds like a build up of scum from washing powder, fibre from clothing etc. Can also be caused by overuse of fabric conditioner.
