Sounds like the seal at the base of the tub is allowing oil to leak from the bearing (that is allowing the tub to spin on the motor shaft.
Not much to do unless you are good with tools and can remove the tub and replace the seal. (This is sorta like the seal between the transmission and engine on a car, or around the main motor bearing)

OIL STAIN ON A CLOTHES out of washing machine E12477


Are they getting the oil stain from the washing machine? If so, you need to get a tech out to inspect your washing machine. If you are putting oily clothes into the washing machine hoping it will come out, it's too late, you need to pre-wash with Shout or Tide to remove oils and grease. The more you wash and dry it the deeper the stain will set. Sounds like you need to throw those clothes away.

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.

Kenmore 70 grease spots


If your starting to see black grease or oil spots on your clothes after washing and it seems to happen more and more chances are the transmission seal is busted and either the whole transmission or just the seal needs replacing.

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.

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 depositing oily stains on clothing HELP


Best way is the old fashioned way. Purchase some soda chrystals and pop them in ur drw. The same amount as you would normally use in detergent powder. Then put the washer on the hottest setting and wash the machine out. Do not put any clothes in the washer at the same time though. This will clean the washer it may take a couple of attempts to clean but doing this once a month will keep on top of it.

Hope this helps

Greasy looking spots on clothing after washing/drying.


Without seeing the spots, this is a bit speculative, but here goes,......
I'm guessing that the spots are only found on the front side, primarily of shirts, or blouses, etc. These are from grease splatters from cooking, which many times only show up after washing and drying.
The soap releases some dirt, which is attracted to the non-removed grease spot, allowing it to show up. Re-wash the clothing, pre-spotting those areas with a citrus pre-spotter.

6 years old hoover washer dryer. Not all, but some light colored tee shirts coming out with what appears to be oily spots. Tried bleach and dishwater tablet as suggested by another forum, but to no avail....


Hi there monobloc,

I've gone through this too. Dishwashing liquid soap, specifically with grease cutting properties. It does take a few cycles to clean it all out though.
