Kind of unusual problem, is it a whirlpool? Dogs are used on agitator to make it turn one way. these tend to wear and break. If it is wp design and the agitator top will spin both ways by hand instead of one way then you need dogs. this means the agitator isnt functioning properly. you would need 7/16 socket and long extension to get to the bolt under the top cap, pull out agitator asm, you should be able to see them or whats left at top of asm.

My miele w3725 front loader washing machine appears to be leaking drops of oil into the wash and staining the clothes. What could be the cause?


Hi dear,
Seems like your washer has bearing seal damage. It will be expensive repair. You may contact Miele to get a quote. Thanks.

OIL STAIN ON A CLOTHES out of washing machine E12477


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.

Starting to leave brown oily like stain on clothes


The first place that I'd check would be the small metal screens inside the openings on the water inlet valve. They can get really rusted, epecially in areas with hard water, so I would recommend removing the water supply hoses and take a gander at the screens. They can sometimes release the iron oxide into the wash water and cause brown stains or blotches on clothing. Hope this helped and best wishes.

Hoover 800 RL toploading washing machine


if you use liquid fabric softner that is what it is sort of looks like grease what happens is that softner gunks up and gets up under the agitator then when your lighter clothes are washing it shows up you need to take some stuff called washer magic and just follow the directions on the bottle

use what ever detregent you want try pretreating strians and heavey soiled items with shout. use recommended amount of soap and try not to overload your washer too many clothes will displace the amount of water in tub and also put strain on your washer which could cause failure
