Grease spots on clothes

I have a Maytag Neptune MAH7500AWQ purchased in 2001. It is getting grease spots on my white and light colored clothes.

    I've noticed it is only noticeable on whites & light colored clothes as well. Towels are very problematic because I use no bleaching or fabric softener products normally. I've been able to lessen it with spray stain removable products.
    I have not found any solutions on line.

Your drum support bracket grease shaft seal (which will require a new Lip Seal Kit #12002022) is dead and potentialy the two shaft bearing are at risk. Parts cost retail approx. $100 or so. Labor, Lookout...

My clothes are coming out of my Neptune Maytag Washer with little black spots I always dry the washer and have no mold issues that I am aware of. What could be causing these spots?


Hello, unfortunately this was a common problem with that machine , the seal and bearing in the washer tub is worn and the grease is leaking out of the bearing and seal and is getting on your clothes. This is not a cheap repair, in fact I would recommend at this point to purchase a new or even a used washer from a shop that gives you a decent warranty.

f you use cold water wash and rinses regularly it may have an accumulation of un-dissolved detergent, dirt/grime and body oils stuck on the inside wall of the outer tub. When washing whites I assume that you are using Hot water and it could be causing some of the accumulation to break loose in small clumps and re-depositing on the clothes.

I am getting little brown spots on my white clothing. Bleach seems to take them out. It just started happening.


sounds like a rear drum shaft seal may be leaking and getting either rust or brown grease spots on your clothes.If this the case,you should be able to see signs of water leakagein the back of the unit.Take the rear cover off and look in the area behind the large drum pulley.This problem also usually results in noisy operation eventually.The water would be getting into the tub bearing behind the seal.

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 stains from Maytag MAV7200AWW washer


HI! I just posted a question to "justask.com" and am having the exact same problem. I paid $9 for this answer and was happy to pay it because I now know what it is! From what I have been told, it is from the transmission in your washer and will cost at least $400 to fix it (that's just a ballpark figure... I have a Frigidaire and that was the figure I was given). So, basically, it would be more cost effective for you to purchase a new washer.
