Grease \ Oil Stains on Clothes
We own a Maytag Dependable Care Quiet Plus (top loader) LAT8826AAE washer. It's about 7 years old. No problems with noise or grease in the tub or on the floor. As per the other posts, we do not use fabric softner. We assume the washer is the culprit but perhaps it's the dryer. Generally, we notice the stains when we pull the clothes out of the dryer but we are not looking too hard when we transfer the cloths from the washer to the dryer. The stains are about a dime to a quarter in size. It will not be the whole load -- just one or two items with one or two stains. It only happens about 1 in every 10 loads. No warranty contracts in place. Any thoughts on how to troubleshoot this problem? Additionally, we could find no break down in the seals as suggested in other posts.

Stains on clothes is extremely difficult to track down the cause. Hopefully another tech. or member that has seen this same issue can post a response here.

Hi, I know it's been a while since your post but I am having the "exact" problem and was wondering if you ever figured out what was happening to your clothes or how you solved your problem. I am absolutley desperate for a solution to our issue here. Any ideas would help. Thanks!
