The mounting stem needs to be replaced. This page shows how to replace the tub seal and the mounting stem. If your washer isn’t leaking water then you only need to replace the mounting stem so all the steps are not necessary. http://appliance-repair-it.com/Maytag-tub-seal.html

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.

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.

Brown spots on clothes


Brown spots indicates a bearing is breaking up, the spots are the grease from the bearing and as the seal breaks down due to the bearings going off centre, the grease gets in the drum.
Get the bearings replaced if affordable.

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.

Grease spots on clothes


That could mean your overloading your dryer to the point the wheel bearings are squished really bad. When loading your washing machine you should always be able to see the water level more than the clothes, your clothes should be floating in the water. That way, when you unload your washing machine and go to dry, you will have the right amount of clothes everytime
