The upper transmission seals bad its under the tub agitator and letting oil into the water called "wash back" you need to replace this seal and stains will disappear

CLOTHES COMING OUT OF WASHER WITH DARK STAINS


Hi Lynn, this is AP.

I understand you are seeing stains and lint on your clothes once removed from your top load washer, model FWS833A. There could be several culprits causing this to happen. To confirm, are the stains not being removed during cycle or do you believe the washer is the cause of the stains? If you believe the stains are being caused from the washer it could possibly be undiluted liquid fabric softener poured directly on fabric. Something more serious could be a broken transmission causing oil to leak in the tub.

There are some basic troubleshooting tips for lint to check such as undissolved detergent can leave residue on clothing. Separate clothing items which shed lint from items which attract lint. Permanent press, synthetic, knit and corduroy items will pick up lint from towels, rugs and chenille bedspreads. Make sure to Use correct amount of detergent, water temperature and water level.

There are some simple troubleshooting tips listed above and in your owner's manual, if you find they do not resolve your concern I would recommend contacting a local authorized technician to inspect the washer.

Thanks,

Have you tested the lid switch, if it is not making the washer will not spin. try using a pen or small bladed screwdriver to depress on the switch to see if you hear it clicking, although sometimes it wont work even if it clicks when they go bad. The washer should work as normal till it gets to the spin cycle, then without the lid switch working it won't go any furthur. You can try jumping across the leads to see if this gets it to spin and this will tell you if the switch is bad or not.

I'm getting small orange spots/stains on my clothing after washing them in my Maytag washing machine. it is a 2010 machine too. Any thoughts as to what could be causing the stains?


Unless there is a child's crayon or something similar causing it, then suspect that the agitator shaft seal, or the drum seal is leaking oil into the drum. Hopefully, there is still warranty on the machine. Good luck!

Washer leaves oil type stain on clothes.what could be cause?


Stains on clothes from this model of washer are usually caused by the door boot or the tub bearing going out. I recommend cleaning off the surface of the door boot and if you still get stained clothes I recommend having the rear tub & basket checked. I am also sending you more troubleshooting tips in the image below.

Grease stains from Maytag MAV7200AWW washer


HI! I just posted a question to "justask.com" and am having the exact same problem. I paid $9 for this answer and was happy to pay it because I now know what it is! From what I have been told, it is from the transmission in your washer and will cost at least $400 to fix it (that's just a ballpark figure... I have a Frigidaire and that was the figure I was given). So, basically, it would be more cost effective for you to purchase a new washer.

Maytag Atlantis black oil like residue and can't remove agitator


Hello
Welcome to fixya.
I'm Huuum and happy to assist you,

this is a very common happening and it means
This usually means that a seal is degrading or dissolving.
This washer is a top loader, Right!
I believe it calls for HE ( High Efficient) laundry detergent.
If we use to much of either it will cause this !

This usually happens due to using to much detergent or bleach.
You said, Black oil like residue discharged from washer during use. Stain clothes, almost impossible to remove. Loosened nut on agitator but it will not budge, and am afraid of damage if I try to pry between agitator and bottom of drum.




Please remember to leave a rating before you go!
Thank you
