Default Grease or oil in washer tub?
Model Number: LW8403W   Brand: Amana   Age: 5 - 10 years   

Appliance Parts from AppliancePartPros.com


Main bearing started to squeal a few months ago.
Now we think the seal is leaking. Grease or oil remains on the bottom of the washing tub at the end of the cycle,
and we're finding black grease spots on the clothes.
Can this be fixed? What parts would be needed?:confused:

It sounds like your main bearing and seal failed, leaking water into the transmission which is producing your stains.

I am not a big fan of making this kind of repair and given the cost I think you are better served with a new machine.
