What you probably have is a build-up of scrud in the machine as a result of an interaction between the fabric softener and the detergent. This flakes off and marks the clothing.
Buy a commercially available cleaner for your machine for this purpose of do one or two cycles using a bottle of white vinegar in the tub without detergent. Clean the machine out doing another cycle using baking soda directly in the drum. Repeat this process if there are still any indications of scrud.
Take care that you use the correct amount of detergent in your machine according to load and water level and do a cleaning run about every 25 wash cycles to clear away any excess detergent that was not caught by the rinse.

Grease like stains on clothing after washing


You have to clean the filter once a month. Which located lower left. Do a tub cleanse. Rinse extra. That will clear your problem. I have had the same issue and many repairmen and that was the answer. As long as I clean it than grease marks

Oil on cloths after wash


Simpson washing machines are known for this, The seal in to top of the gearbox fails which allows water to enter the gearbox, this forces the grease out of the gearbox into the machine, The fix is an expensive gearbox swap.

Oil marks on my clothes after washing


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.
Please rate my solution.
Thankyou.

Grease on clothing, AGAIN. Have had the wash plate replaced, but the problem returned within a year.


Try changing your detergent. I believe it was Tide that caused dark grease type marks on my clothing. It hasn't been a problem since I changed detergents.

Marks on clothes


Hi. 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. Good luck

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.

Brown spotting on washed clothes


chances are if you have eliminated anything thats got in by accident that the drum bearings are about to go, the drum bearings are protected by a water seal, this has started to leak and is now washing the grease out of the bearings back into the wash, you may also find a small amount of water on the floor, if you also remove the back and look behind the large pulley you may also see brown water marks running from the center of the outer drum

the next step will be a very noisy spin, like a rumbling noise

DRUM BEARINGS sorry
