I would recomend washing them again You might have a transmission leaking but Highly unlikely, <br />

If it is the transmission , looking at around $140.00 for the part
Customer: replied 7 years ago.

If after washing a second time and we notice more stains, what could the problem be?

 

If the transmission is leaking, ids it time for a new machine?

 

What can we use on the sheets to get rid of stains?

This is a 5 year old machine- if transmission problem, should we buy a new machine or service this one? About how much is labour time.We are in Chicago.

Is it possible that the grease stains come from the dryer (not the washer) and we only noticed after drying the clothes?
