I find this problem in several VMW type washers: Error code F7E1 and/or noisy spin. When I examine the parts underneath, everything is splattered with a brown residue, especially on the speed sensor cover. I can usually correct the error code by cleaning or replacing the sensor/shifter assembly, but then it spins noisily like a jet plane taking off. I'm sure the transmission needs replacing, but what is that brown residue?
