Leaves spots on my clothes


Kathy, you may have the beginnings of a tub bearing failure. What usually happens is the water seal fails on the tub drum shaft. This lets water into the bearing cavity and usually some grease migrates out into the drum. What eventually happens is the wash water eventually washes the grease out of the bearings and they fail. You will notice your spin cycle getting louder and louder.
You can check for a loose tub bearing by lifting the drum gently at the top. Is there play where the drum can move vertically, independently of the outer assembly? That's my guess. You can do an internet search about tub bearing replacement if you want to get into that. Its doable, depending on your skill level. Good luck.
Been there and done that. Usually Frigidaire doesn't sell the bearings, but they are standard bearings and you can usually match up a seal.

My clothings get grease like stains sfter I wash them with Kenmore washer.


Don't know if this is a front or top loader since you did not supply the model number. But if the stains are grease, it could only mean that the bearing seal has been compromised. Water is getting into the bearings and the bearing grease is what is on your clothes. You need to have the bearing and the seal replaced on your machine.

It is not to bad on a top loader in terms of cost to repair. But, if you have a front loader, that is a different story, since the entire machine needs to be torn apart to get to the bearings and the replacement parts and labor can be as much as a new washer. In either case, get a few estimates before deciding whether to repair or replace the washer. Hope this helps you.

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.

My washer leaves oil spots on my clothes


The only place where oil can enter the wash would be if the bearing seals have failed. It's a major repair, and the entire machine has to be taken apart to replace the bearing and seal.

Grease /oil spots on clothes coming from washer


Hello,
This sounds like the drum bearings are starting to wear and allowing grease to infiltrate through the inner seal.Does it sound noisy on the spin cycle.

Washer leaves spots on clothes


wipe the inside of the washer with a clean white cloth and see if anything shows up, it may be an ink pin that was left in the wash or a leaking seal that is letting grease enter the washer tube from the washer tub bearings.

Your drum support bracket grease shaft seal (which will require a new Lip Seal Kit #12002022) is dead and potentialy the two shaft bearing are at risk. Parts cost retail approx. $100 or so. Labor, Lookout...

Stains on clothing


Usually black oily stains are a symptom of a rear main drum bearing starting to go bad. The seal goes bad first and the packing grease will start to weep out as water gets into the bearings. Is the washer starting to get loud during any spin cycle? If so, I think your bearing is starting to go. It's not a cheap fix, either. The whole back shell of the outer wash tub has to be replaced because the bearings are molded into the plastic. I hope this is helpful in some way.
