No matter which cycle you set the machine to run, it only operates in delicate (slow) spin and agitate.
Also slight water leak sometimes in right front area. Today we think it might have emitted grease into the tub during the spin. Not sure, as we could not duplicate on next wash. (Could have been in the clothes)

Hi Tanglewood

If you will take off the front of your machine (release two clips at the outer part of the gap between the front panel and top) you can observe the machine running and determine where your leak originates.

With respect to your spin issue, it's hard to tell but the timer would be the first suspect. If you continue to get grease in your clothes it is probably coming from the transmission and a new machine will be in order.

Hope this helps, good luck.
