Clean out the gunk from the fabric softener basin in the center of the machine in the tub. The gunk gets on the clothes and then gets baked in the dryer and turns out black grease.

Frequently, if you use low temperature washes most of the time, a layer of grease (sounds yukky) builds up in all washing machines. The way around this is to find some clothes (boiler suits or overalls would do) which require high-temperature washes to remove grease and run these through at a high temperature wash for a couple of washes, using both detergent and washing soda (Na2CO3, sodium carbonate). The sodium carbonate will dissolve the grease, both on the clothes and the washing machine.

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.

Grease on my freshly washed cloths


This sounds like a seal problem in the base of the agitator. This seal is what keeps the water inside the machine and the grease out of the wash basin. It is not something that should be attempted to repair if you are not mechanically inclined.

To get the grease out of your clothes, use an engine de-greaser which can be bought from any automotive parts store. You just spray the de-greaser on the area where the grease is located and rub it in by hand. You will need to use lots of soap to remove the de-greaser from your clothes, and might have to wash the item twice, to get rid of the de-greaser smell from the clothes.

Note, the de-greaser will break down all oil stains and grease stains, and is an oil by-product. This has worked for me on many occasions, but I have only used it on denim jeans and cotton shirts, with excellent results.

Clear greasy stains appearing on clothes from brand new LG front loading washer


the grease i'm sure would be coming from the machine. look at the water solenoids, detergent dispenser, dispenser solenoids, everything with rubber hoses.

they do put a clear grease just to insert the hose easier in the plant. and if it was not removed during QC, then it would come out now as you uses it.

tnx 4 using fixya,

Black particles in clothes after using a top loading samsung fully automatic washing machine


You said these particles stick to the clothes, do they come off and then leave a stain? It may be grease or oil coming from a leaking drum bearing seal.
If it is, This is a major repair and not one for DIY.
