Oil stains on clothes

My washing machine has started to spray oil? on the clothes. I assume this is in the rinse cycle? What could cause this and can it be fixed?
Thank you

Sounds like the transmission has developed a bad seal, allowing the oil to enter the washing compartment. Check the transmission seal and look for any cracks or obvious problems, by tilting the washing machine over on it's side (after unhooking all of the hoses and unplugging the power cord, of course)

My Kenmore Elite Top-Load Series 700 Washer leaves streaks on clothing. It looks like dusty powder. I use liquid HE detergent. It was a normal cycle of dark clothes, not heavily soiled or dirty. Also


THE stains on your clothing especially on whites are most likely due to a top seal failure on your transmission. transmission leaking oil. if the clothing affected or the stain can be removed with a solvent like gas, kerosene, paint thinner repair on washer will exed the value .... if the streaks or stains can be removed with a water soluble detergent then the stains are caused by the soap and or hard water deposits in your washer . then the solution to cut way down on soap usage in your washer and or running an acid wash (soap is alkaline acid will dissolve it . make sure not to over solvent your clothes and to rinse all solvents out completely . be careful !!!! a solvent soaked t-shirt bunched up and left in tightly sealed plastic bag WILL CATCH ON FIRE!!!!

Dark greasy stains after washing


When the seal starts to fail, this oil floats up into the wash water
in the form of small black drops. The stains are almost impossible
to remove from clothing. Also, as the oil is leaking up, hot soapy
water is leaking down into the transmission, which will eventually
cause it to fail.

The seal wont be difficult to replace,but to get access to it you have to
basically disassemble the whole machine. The hardest part was pulling the agitator off the shaft - I
use a slide hammer puller. I'd start by pulling the agitator off and
see if you can access the transmission seal that way - perhaps yours
will be easier than mine was.

Leaves oil on clothes


The description of your issue focuses on the motor and or the pump.
1. there be residual lubricant in the pump or the hot water inlet valve or the moter of the washer has lubricant coming up thru the seals of the rotation spindal or shaft and is being mixed with the wash or rinse water and then the spin cycle settles the oil in the clothes.
This is the explanation but to remedy this will require full service of the washer.
1. resealing the washer drum
2. check and replace the pump
3. check a replace the seals on the inlet vavles.

Kenmore washer series 80, Clothes still soapy


If you are getting no water spray during the rinse cycle that would cause the soapy clothes issue.

Are you getting cold water during the wash/rinse cycles? If you have the machine set to warm/warm you may only be getting hot water while the final spin is calling for cold.

If you have cold water available then the timer is not calling for the water spray. The problem is either in the mixing valve or the timer.

To overcome the problem, try using hand hot water for your wash once or twice each month, the hot water keeps the inside of the machine clean by not allowing the oily residue from body oils that adhere to your clothes from sticking to the hose etc, also there is always some water left over in the bottom of the bowl (you can't see this water) which has left over scum that has not rinsed away still sitting in this water. GIVE YOUR WASH AN EXTRA DEEP RINSE WHEN THE CYCLE FINISHES.(just turn your dial to where it says RINSE) that way your clothes will be much cleaner and the washer will have removed any left over gung etc from your clothes and bowl etc.. Hope this helps..
