Question about Washing Machines
I have a fridgidare front load washer that also had a problem with spots. It happened 2 years ago and I was seeing some brown spots that I could not get off my clothes. After research, I was informed that I had a bearing seal failure and water was getting past the seal and leaking into the inner ball bearing. I proceded to take my washer apart, remove the wash tub and the wash drum, and confirmed that the seal had failed and the bearing has begun to fail. The grease from the failed bearing was the stuff that was staining my clothes with spots.
Fridgidare did not sell the bearing and seal seperately but would only sell the rear wash tub with the bearing and seal for $250 plus shipping. I found a source of the bearings and seal, and replaced them and put my machine back together and it no longer stains my clothes.
If your machine is leaving stains on your clothes it is most likely that the seal has begun to fail. Another thing that I found was the the spin cycle sounded like a jet plane. After the bearing was replaced, the machine is much quieter during the spin cycle. You did not mention what model you have but mine is the FWTR647GHSO model, and I have a document that I used to describe how to take it apart. I can share this if you are interested. Hope this helps you.
