    Oh my goodnes...this is happening to us as well. I have replaced the washer and the dryer (Fridgidaire front loaders) , I have used dye free soap, I have hired a plumber to bypass all of our indoor plumbing and the water is now coming straight from the city water supply. I use only cold water wash. I have installed a filter on the pipe going in. I am so frustrated!!!! The stains look like melted chapstick and only show up on dark loads. But they also show up sporadically so it's hard to tell which piece of clothing will get ruined. Please help!!! I don't want to spend any more MONEY ON THIS.

Greasy marks on clothes in top loading washing machines can also be caused by...


90% of greasy marks on cloths is due to scum build in the outer bowl of your machine...top loaders being the most vulnerable. prevention is better than cure. At least one hot wash a week on high level. If your machine is an early model one or two with a good bleach subject to manufacturers instruction...bleach is very cost effective and works well.

2nd time I have oil stains on my clothes from Whirlpool LSR9434PQ1 and nothing gets them out. Need to know how to get the stains out and what kind of washing machine is better so that I can replace. Spent...


You can try Lestoil to get the grease out, it has surfactants that will help break up the grease, if they aren't set too deeply. This seems to me to have a leaking transmission if you are constantly getting grease on the clothes. A better machine is anything newer that you can afford, quite honestly, there is only your preference to what you want/need for your usage.
Hope this helps, please rate service and comment, Thank You,

Dirt and oil spots on laundry


The rear seal and the rear waher drum bearing is defective, this allows grease to get into the washer and that is what is getting on the clothes

You probably have a bad seal on the back of the drum, as that bearing is the only source of grease near your clothes. Good luck.

Clothes are dirtier after washing...


go to your local appliance store and ask for "Affresh" washer cleaner. works excellent. If hubby need to get into the machine have hime clean out the pump. You probably have **** in there thats also contributing to the problem. good luck

Clear greasy stains appearing on clothes from brand new LG front loading washer


the grease i'm sure would be coming from the machine. look at the water solenoids, detergent dispenser, dispenser solenoids, everything with rubber hoses.

they do put a clear grease just to insert the hose easier in the plant. and if it was not removed during QC, then it would come out now as you uses it.

tnx 4 using fixya,
