KENMORE WASHER MOD # XXXXX OIL APPEARING ON CLOTHES
Hello, and thank you for using this service. I'll be helping you with your problem today.

So the only thing that would allow oil to get on the clothing is if the seals on the basket drive weren't sealing up properly. This means that you'd need to order and replace the basket drive (also known as the break assembly). The part number is XXXXX and it's not a cheap part or an easy part to replace, but below is a link to the part you'd need to order and replace for your model.

Below is a video that will help show you how to replace the part.
