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.

Oil spots on clothes is from a seal on the drum. The balance issue is from shocks or springs that may be loose or broken and the spin issue is due to transmission. You may have a problem finding parts

Getting grease or oil spots on clothes when washing. Machine is not making any odd noises. It has a stainless steel drum. Never had a problem with this machine. It's a commercial version for homeowners. ...


If you get grease-like marks on your clothes after a laundry cycle, and they wash out in the next load, don't despair. It's a sure bet they're caused by detergent and fabric softener that have congealed on the underside of the agitator or along the top edge of the washer basket.


To eliminate the problem, first clean any crud from the gap along the top of the washer basket. Then remove the agitator and clean the gunk off the underside. Since the agitator removal procedure varies by manufacturer, go toallplianceguru.com and search for your make and model. After youve cleaned the agitator, reinstall it and fill the tub with hot water. Next, dump in 8 oz. of washing machine cleaner (Washer Magic is one brand; buy fromamazon.com or applianceparts stores) and run it for a full cycle without any clothes. That should eliminate the problem. If not, repeat the procedure.

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.

Washing comes out with grease


check the drain tab or the drain tube, see if there is any material that carry a grease, there is no way that the grease will come out from the motors because there is no direct contact with water, or maybe you were able to wash a clothes with grease, if thats the case then you gonna need detergent soap and scotch clothe to clean the tab and the tubes

Grease-like stains on clothing


hi. i can help. the grease is coming from one of two places. Either some item with grease on it got placed in the machine and the grease transferred to the tub where it will cause the problem until it is spotted and removed with a degreaser, or wears off.

OR the grease is coming from the washer itself. Perhaps some grease oozed out of the mechanicals related to the aggitator.

Either way I would get a strong flash light or trouble light and look carefully in the tub and around the aggitator for grease. Then remove it with a cloth and some degreaser, available at any auto parts store.

Oil spots on clothes


HI Friend,
First of all relax alright, you are in safe hands.
See every washing machine has a turbine at the bottom f the washing bowl and below that there is a motor. And there wud be a safety valve or (washer ) which basically looks like a ring made out rubber or plastic and when this ring gets outdated or torn it stops controlling the oil flow and thats the reason y ur clothes have the oil stains ,so once it is replaced you will not have this issue.
This would surely help you in getting the clothes clean and tidy.!!!!!!!!!!!!
Have a great day!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
And please rate me so that I can improve myself(vote).

Oil-like stains on wahsed clothing.


Around the white plastic rim right above the steel tub, link gets caught. I have only been able to remove it with my fingers every week or so and this seems to stop the "spotting/striping" of stains on my cloths. I would also like to know the RIGHT answer to this one. Thanks
