SOURCE: Found oil and grease under washing machine. Makes loud noise when on spin cycle.

The oil and grease is probably from the transmission and yes you might be able to replace it. Get your make andmodel number and go to www.repairclinic.com. It is a very good site for finding pictures and parts of appliances. The parts are as cheap as you will find them. If the oil/grease is from the transmission, it will eventually fail. Fix it now or fix it later. Your choice.

The tub won't drain and it spins very slowly. I've also noticed, over the last couple years, some oil/rust spots on my clothes. It is a top loading washer that is over 20 years old.

Grease oil ring around tub and it smells like oil?


The only place there is oil in a washer is inside the transmission. If you have oil in the tub (and it didn't come from the clothes you put in) you have a bad transmission seal. It is generally cost prohivitive to replace the transmission. It's time to get a new washer. Look into the front load machines which use much less water and spin out twice as fast as top loaders. Some even have direct drive, which means no belt, transmission, or clutch.

Washing machine stains clothes


You can pull the agitator straight up and off to check if there is any grease / oil on the bottom of it. You may have to use a belt or similar item to slip under the agitator and attach the other end to a broom handle to pull up if it is difficult to remove. If there is grease / oil, it is not very easy or inexpensive to repair. The average life of a washer is about 9 years, so this one doesn't owe you anything. I'd look into a new front load unit which uses much less water and spins clothes out at 2X or more the RPM's of your current machine. Please don't rate this solution as anything but a FixYa rating will lower my overall score. Thanks.

Sounds like the clutch is slipping but sometime catching. Or maybe the transmission is almost gone. Is there a burning smell? If so, probably clutch.
