I hope you can help!
Model # WTW5600XW0
I started having blackish brown spots occurring on my whites after washing. Realized it was nastiness under the base of my tub. How do I get this off to clean?

Was able to get tub ring off and found culprit to stains... oil all over the shaft. Grease is seeping out during hot washes. Any thoughts or recommendations?

Hi,

That's the gearcase shaft leaking, you'd need to replace the gearcase to fix it.

Here's the gearcase assembly for your model number:
