My washing is coming out of the machine with black marks over the clothes. They are small black speckles and look like oil marks as they do not wash out. Do you have any idea what is causing this as it is happeing on a regular occurence now.

Re: black oil or grease on clothes after washing
Is you machine a top loader or front loader? if its a front loader the black marks could be from the boot. WIpe the boot with a good cleaner. and try not to over load machine. and if it a top loader your transmission is probably leaking oil back into clothes tub. You could have it rebuilt $$$ or better replace the machine.

Are they getting the oil stain from the washing machine? If so, you need to get a tech out to inspect your washing machine. If you are putting oily clothes into the washing machine hoping it will come out, it's too late, you need to pre-wash with Shout or Tide to remove oils and grease. The more you wash and dry it the deeper the stain will set. Sounds like you need to throw those clothes away.
is the black marks grease look under the bottom of the machine and look on the side walls of the machine if u have a line of grease around both sides then you would need to change the transimission on the machine if it is not grease and you determine that is pen u might try looking in between the two baskets.And lastly ihave seen pen cartriges enlodge inside the pump which does cause the pen to leak hope this helps
Hi just read your posting.Are you 100% sure the black marks are grease or oil?If you are then the only place the oil comes from is the gearbox.This means that to repair this fault you need a new gearbox.Unfortunately the repair is not cheap so I would recommend getting a service tech out to confirm.Every time I went to a customers house and I saw this problem then I would tell them the same thing.Once again sorry for the bad news and please reply if you need any more help or advice.Good luck.
It could be an indication that the main bearings are failing, or it could be an effect known as grease balling.
This is caused by washing at too low a temperature, or not using enough powder, or using the wrong type of powder.
If it is the bearings, then I would expect it to be getting noisy, particularly on the spin cycle.
Hope this helps.

Souds like an Effect called ****.
Usually caused by not using enough powder, or washing at too low a temperature.
You should do a boil wash at least once a month with powder in but no clothes in.
It is called maintenance wash. Always wash at the recommended temp on the wash care label.
is it a rumbling noise? if so it may be the drum bearings are in need of replacing. two tell tale signs are
1, check clothes for any black speckles, as this is a clear indication that the bearing seal is worn and that oil and grease from the bearings are entering the wash tub.
2, whilst the drum is empty see if there is any movement in the drum, the easiest way is to place four fingers inside the lip of the drum and place your thumb on the door seal and pull it towards you in an up and down motion. if there is any movement then the bearings need replaced.
