My washing has yellow stains on white items especially around collars and cuffs Also bed linen


Since I do not know the style or type I may not answer your question but from experience it sounds like water is leaking into the transmission causing the oil to come past the seal into the wash causing the stains. Try these links and see if they help.

I have oil leaking on my 110 24622300 Kenmore washing machine


If oil is dripping on your washing machine, you must have something above it that is leaking. Look up to find it.

Your washing machine does not have an engine.

Major PITA to find source.
Get leak detection dye and UV flashlight.Yellow glasses may help.
Wash off front of engine at the quarter car wash.(Engine running)
When you get home,add dye.Run engine for one minute or less and look.Use an inspection mirror to see the lower cam cover and front of oil pan with engine off.
The dye with glow bright yellow.

That sounds like oil but there's nowhere the oil would be coming from except the rear bearing but that would be more of a grey or black colour.Is your fabric softener yellow.it could be fabric softener.try not using any for a couple of loads & see.I don't know if the dots are washing off but fabric softener stains will normally wash off.oil won't.

Thick Gear-like oil leaking from the bottom somewhere


looks like your washer is developing a leak from the seals in the drum thus allowing some water to seep into the bearings get it checked before the bearings run out completely

I have an oil leak on my clothes washer.


If you have a front loading washing machine the oil is really the grease for the bearings that support the drum. The grease seal needs to be replaced, and if you are replacing the seal you might as well do the bearings. This is not a cheap repair because of the amount of labor involved in tearing the machine apart to replace the seal and bearings. If you don't repair the seal, eventually the grease will be washed out of the bearings and the bearings will be destroyed. You can tell if you need new bearings because when the machine is on the fast spin cycle it will sound like a jet engine taking off.

Oil leak in washing machine


Sounds like the transmission is leaking. These transmission don't need to be full of oil to function. But, if it's leaking a lot, like tablespoons, it should be checked. It's not the end of the line. Just may need a service call if it's a plentiful leak.

Grease/oil under washer


Hi, there. Get some one to fix that leak ASAP. The lack of oil will ruin your machine's transmission and/or motor. If you've noticed that your machine runs louder than it used to, then ***stop using it*** until you get the leak repaired. I kept using mine and when it stopped working I couldn't get the parts (a transmission) so I have to get a new one.
