Re: whirlpool calipso washer
If these are gray spots it may be fabric softener. Try running a few loads without and see what happens. Also check the seal around outside of inner tub bottom to make sure it still contacts tub all the way around. If it doesn't, you need to have a tech replace the nutator assembly and hte bottom plate. Based on past experience, may be better off replacing.

Are you using a liquid fabric softener ? If so , try using dryer sheets instead . Maytag is known for making liquid softener look like grease on clothes . After switching for a while , and still grease looking stains , then it is possible for the water to be getting into the transmission and pushing the grease up into the tub . Rare , but happens . Time for another machine if that happens .
hi. i can help. the grease is coming from one of two places. Either some item with grease on it got placed in the machine and the grease transferred to the tub where it will cause the problem until it is spotted and removed with a degreaser, or wears off.
OR the grease is coming from the washer itself. Perhaps some grease oozed out of the mechanicals related to the aggitator.
Either way I would get a strong flash light or trouble light and look carefully in the tub and around the aggitator for grease. Then remove it with a cloth and some degreaser, available at any auto parts store.
Get a flash light and look very closely at the entire inside of the washer. what you are looking for is a little yellow grease, which is causing this problem. if you find the grease, remove it with a degreaser and you will be fine.
Grease will not come from the interior of the washer, as the machine ages build up deposits under the basket and it is oily, greasy and full of mildew. If can get a spanner wrench from a appliance parts house and remove the basket you will see on machines older than three years a build up starting. I pulled 15 lbs from a 25 year old machine and I had to go get sick outside, it was bad.
